With one week left, the "American Idol" producers made their choice, loud and clear: This is Lee DeWyze's competition to win. What else could explain his Jerry Bruckheimer-sized closing performance from last night? It was Judges' Pick night (along with picks from the contestants), and Simon Cowell put a softball on a T for the former paint salesman. But giving Lee "Hallelujah" (which, by the way, could use an extended "Idol" respite) wasn't enough: Let's add strings! No, no, we need horns, too! Ah, f--k it, he needs a gospel choir, too! The audience, along with the judges, were bludgeoned to submission by Lee's Play-Like-a-Champion-Today rendition. Afterward, with tears in his eyes, Lee realized he was put in pole position to win this thing. His stuttering, post-performance interview with Ryan Seacrest affirmed the shock.
