Video - Lee Dewyze Scores On Idol With Hallelujah

Last night on American Idol the three remaining contestants threw down in their dash for the finish. Well, Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze did. Casey James appears to have given up, making the final two all but a lock.

Lee's first song, and the one he selected, was "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Okay, it was good but did not set the room on fire.

But the song selected for Dewyze by Simon Cowell himself was "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. Lee hit the ball out of the park.

But it also seems the American Idol producers threw everything at the performance to help sway the vote. Epic lighting, epic orchestra, fast camera shots, excellent backup singers, and more help Lee look like a rock star.

Poor Casey could only stand on the stage with his guitar and bleat out another song. Seems a bit unfair?

The studio broke into applause giving the former paint salesmen a standing ovation.
