Booking Lee DeWyze
Lee DeWyze Booking Profile
Best known for winning the ninth season of American Idol, the Illinois native had a solo career prior to his audition for the show, having formed the Lee DeWyze Band. He had also released two independent albums called So I’m Told in 2007 and Slumberland in 2010, both on WuLi Records. DeWyze auditioned in Chicago for the ninth season of American Idol in 2009 and was one of only 13 people from Chicago, the lowest number out of all 7 audition cities, to make it through to Hollywood week. During Hollywood week, his group included Aaron Kelly and Crystal Bowersox, both of whom made the Top 5. Crystal Bowersox and DeWyze made it to that top two, in which he won. DeWyze was one of two contestants in Season 9 to never land in the bottom three, the other being runner-up Crystal Bowersox. The judges praised him for shedding his shy persona throughout the season and showing, with confidence, that he was “in it to win it.” In 2010, DeWyze performed at the Arlington Park Race Track in Arlington Heights, Illinois, with more than 41,000 people attending as part of his American Idol Homecoming day. Along with performing at the race track, he had a parade in Mount Prospect, performed at a local AT&T store, and threw out the opening pitch at a Chicago Cubs baseball game. On May 26, DeWyze was crowned the winner of American Idol Season 9. As a result of winning the season, DeWyze also won a recording contract.
