Lee Dewyze of 'American Idol' performs on Lennon & McCartney Night
Singer: Lee Dewyze
Song: "Hey Jude"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Crystal Bowersox with the line of the night, predicting that Andrew Garcia and Lee Dewyze are going to get married and have "Danny Gokey babies." When oh when are we going to get a theme night built around the music of Michael McDonald? Lee's performance isn't all that exciting until the half-way point when some dude in a kilt comes down the steps playing a bagpipe. Unlike Crystal's didgeridoo player, this is more of a distraction and an oddity. I'm not sure it adds anything at all to what was otherwise just a decent performance and it definitely forces Lee to shout over his Arbitrary Scottish Accompaniment.
Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon Say: You know what Randy loves? That Lee's always nervous before his performance and then he delivers. "You didn't even get rattled by that guy showing up," Ellen tells him. Kara's a fan and she could hear him on the radio. Simon's gun-shy. He tells Lee that he was doing great before the bagpipe player showed up. "It was like he turned up on the wrong show," Simon says. Lee owns it and says that the bagpipe player was 100 percent his decision.
