Lee Dewyze of 'American Idol' performs on Elvis Night
Singer: Lee Dewyze
Song: "Little Less Conversation"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: I'm loving that Adam Lambert isn't just making fun of every "Idol" finalist. He's making fun of them for exactly the right reasons. This has to be a familiar arrangement of "Little Less Conversation," right? I like it. Lee still has only a limited amount of stage presence, but he's musical and talented. And Lee's vocals and guitar acumen are even more impressive and admirable after Tim Urban.
Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon Say: Yo. You know what Randy's loving? He's loving that Lee is in the zone. Ellen thought it was current and engaged more with the audience. Kara loved it, though she'd have liked a little more lightness and more playfulness. Simon responds, "When you say playful, what do you want? Kittens?" Simon thought it was "on the money, full stop."
