We LOVE this video of the American Idol final ten rehearsing a group number for their upcoming tour.
The group will be performing their own rendition of season one winner Kelly Clarkson’s hit track ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ and both Crystal Bowersox and Siobhan Magnus seem to have lead roles in the arrangement.
X Factor judge Simon Cowell reportedly made an extravagant gesture to all the staff of American Idol, as he moved on from the show.
Simon announced his decision to leave Idol earlier this year and last month judged his final contestant.

American idol winner Lee DeWyze was finally allowed to set up his own Twitter account and he joined the social networking site last Tuesday.

Christian Newswire have hit out at American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres, blaming her shameless promotion of “homosexuality as a virtue”, for the ratings decline which has affected the show.

American Idol winner Lee Dewyze has failed to score a top ten hit with his debut single. In fact the 24 year old singer from Illinois failed to even get a top twenty hit with his release.
Lee did score the highest new entry in the Billboard Hot 100 with his cover of U2′s Beautiful Day, however it charted in the disappointing 24th position and if it fails to move up next week, he will be responsible for the lowest charting debut single of any Idol winner EVER.
