Lee DeWyze’s Wins American Idol Despite Chin-stache
Although he has two Clay Aiken CDs, a Ruben Studdard Single, and half a Taylor Swift album, DBSF has never seen an episode of American Idol (so this is a qualified critique).
Last night apparently someone named Lee DeWyze won American Idol. This news registers for DBSF somewhere between a Des Moines traffic report, and a high school student’s thoughts on the BP oil spill in the Gulf.
What caught DBSF’s attention though was DeWyze’s choice for facial hair. DeWyze has a patch of hair beneath his chin. Considering they have make-up and production-type people who monitor contestants for stylistic faux-pas it appears that the facial hair was done on purpose.
DeWyze looks like he belongs at a Green Turtle, or a dirt bike racing event not winning some hip, young singing game show. Apparently, DeWyze’s win is just one more piece of evidence that there is life between America’s coastal cities.
