  1. New thread! Getting closer to 1000 at the other one! So i guess Lee did perform…hopefully videos coming soon :) Great cause, great guy! Haha, his hair doesnt look too bad in some photos.

    Aussie chef, Curtis Stone was there! Who is that woman in between Lee and him? She looks familiar..

  2. Great pictures. Okay I’m warming up to the hair cut. :) Still perfer the old one though. Hoping for videos too.

  3. That girl looks like the actress who played Steve Sanders wife on 90210 lol forgot her name though..And yesss I love Curtis Stone! This looks like a really nice organization.

    I’m warming up to the haircut too I think.

  4. Wonderful for him to take time out from writing and recording for such a great cause, since the deadline for his album to be finished is coming up soon.
    Really want videos from this. I’m still watching the amazing ones from last week’s huge concert at Arlington Park.

  5. Curtis and Lee at the same event? I would have passed out. It’s good no one invited me. I want Lee’s old hair back, but the beauty of hair is that it can be changed again without too much time or effort.

  6. Looks like he got a haircut and then put his beanie on lol!! Hope we get vid’s of any preformance!! He had his guitar in that one pic!

  7. Hey Trina and Yvonne13! thnx for dropping by at times :) Do we have you guys on twitter? (if u have twitter)

  8. great photos, thanks for the post MJ. Looks like it was a great night for a good cause. I hope some ids show up too ;)

  9. His hair is growing on me as well. It’s just short and fly away right now. If it’s styled properly it will look cute! It’s funny how we are all commenting on his hair!

    Of course, we like that he’s coming out and performing for a good cause as well.

  10. Morning everyone! I’m glad we have a new Lee thread with nice scenery ;)

    Lee’s really busy finishing up the album, so it’s nice to see him leave the metaphorical cave for a good cause.

  11. Hoping for a single release date soooon!

    Yvonne13– close..i’m @nabs1611 :)

  12. Hey all, just so you know we are still posting on the AP thread, 49 more to 1000 posts!

    Yes, hoping the single release day is very soon!

  13. Yvonne13- close..i’m @nabs1611

    Nabs, just followed you and sent a tweet. You’ll see my screen name is different on Twitter.

    Back on topic…I think Curtis was playing for this charity on Celebrity Apprentice? The girl in the print dress is cute. Who is she?

    Big Mike had Lee working out on the bus while on tour. It’s funny where people put on weight. Lee definitely filled out in the face. He was so thin at the end of Idol that a little extra weight can’t hurt him.

  14. Aussie chef, Curtis Stone was there! Who is that woman in between Lee and him? She looks familiar..

    Lindsay Price is her name. She was also on Lipstick Jungle.
    Why does Lee look so puffy? Maybe weight gain is just more apparent on short people.

  15. I love how everyone else in the pic is dressed formally but Lee is in converse and black jeans! He is still the same casual guy he always was. You have to respect him for not letting this celebrity thing change him!

  16. I’m still hoping for a video of Lee performing at Feed America event!

  17. Idjfan-he is dressed formally-he’s wearing black converse instead of flip-flops.

  18. Why does Lee look so puffy? Maybe weight gain is just more apparent on short people.

    Lee’s not all that short, and he doesn’t look overweight to me either. I do however think that other things can color a person’s perception about the way someone looks, don’t you? ;)

  19. I do however think that other things can color a person’s perception about the way someone looks, don’t you?

    {{drinks to that}}

  20. The photos look weird-sorta squished. I saw him 7 days ago and he has not gained any weight–unless he did it since then.

    PS Not likin’ the haircut. Maybe I need to see some different pics. Lee, you’re the first Idol in three years with great hair*–don’t screw it up!

    *j/k. Yeah, Cookie’s got issues, but I think people who say Kris’s hair is in trouble, are smoking something. :)

  21. OMG! Lee’s latest tweet:

    On my way to San Francisco with @thedavidcook, & @nealfingtiemann . Performance tomorrow night, relaxing tonight :) talk to ya soon!

    and David tweeted back:

    @LeeDeWyze you speak truths, good sir. I think. Tomorrow tonight?

    I wonder what’s going on…can’t wait to see the pics and vids. My 2 favorite Idols together…I might just pass out.

  22. OMG! Lee & David performing together – I’m toast! Add Chris Daughtry to the mix and I’m dead!

  23. Katya:

    I wonder what’s going on…can’t wait to see the pics and vids. My 2 favorite Idols together…I might just pass out.

    No kidding! I’ll try not to land on you.

  24. Katya,

    My 2 favorite Idols together…I might just pass out.

    Thud! :)

  25. Lee DeWyze and David Cook together? Please pinch me, I think I’m Only Dreaming! :)

  26. Whatever it is, I can’t wait,and I want video!! David and Lee, oh my.

  27. Can we add Curtis Stone into the Cook/Dewyze mix? Wait, is there a doctor in the house?

  28. Thought Lee looks happy ( if anything).
    He is doing good by supporting such a good cause as FA.
    Also loving the “anti-glam”. I love that he is staying true to himself.

  29. I left the house for an hour to run errands and so much to read now. I can’t keep up! David and Lee playing somewhere together, cool! Hopefully we’ll get some video.

  30. Yvonne13:

    Can we add Curtis Stone into the Cook/Dewyze mix? Wait, is there a doctor in the house?

    Yes please! I love Curtis Stone, he appears in Biggest Loser once in a while, that’s where I started liking him. I didn’t realize how tall he is…Lee looks so short next to him and Lee’s 5’9″.

  31. Any new tweets from David Cook or Neil? I only get Lee tweets. All is quiet on his end.

  32. Whoever gave Lee that hair cut should be taken out back and shot, LOL! omg! he’s had haircuts before that looked great. Love him but not the hair in these pics. Still good to see him out especially for a great cause.

  33. AIaddict.Whoever gave Lee that hair cut should be taken out back and shot,

    LOL :)

    And whoever said 5’9 is deemed short ??? I’d look like a midget if I stand next to Lee.
    Hope someone took videos of his performance.

  34. He’s tall enough for me, I’m 5’4″. The only problem is Joss Stone, she is 5’10”.

  35. We’ve closed out Lee’s AP thread. We are posting here now!

    We hit 1004 postings on AP!

  36. Aprilfoolish, I think he definitely shaved it closer for the show. It does look like there is a bit more there now.

  37. Wonder if Curtis Stone gave Lee any cooking tips. I remember Lee’s saying that his ex-girlfriend made him watch The Cooking Channel which turned him on to cooking. Bet he enjoyed meeting a great chef!

  38. We hit 1004 postings on AP!

    1005. I posted before I saw we were done there. Sorry.

  39. I like the way in the main photo above that Lee is surrounded by the women while the rest of the men hang out at the side!

  40. I think from now on Lee will always have lots of women surrounding him.

  41. Actually, I think Lee might look good with a little guyliner. Of course, we would have to hold him down to apply it- I remember reading that one of his former band members said he used to hide from the makeup lady. While we had him captive, we could fix his hair, too.

  42. omg..please dont wear guyliner, Lee!

    btw, i think Lee and David killed me ;) They’re both so witty and just played off each others lyrics ;)

  43. omg..please dont wear guyliner, Lee

    Let’s fix his hair but no guyliner shall touch
    the eyes of Lee Dewyze, ever.

  44. I believe I’ll stay right here in this thread. Too many folks peeing on my cheerios at the other one, and when that happens, it just makes sense to push the bowl away and find something else to eat.;) Back to celebrating – So glad we hit the 1,000! Single coming “soon”! Lee loves us! Back to watching AP vids!

  45. Oh, forgot to vote: No eyeliner for Lee (unless he finds he cannot live without it).

  46. bamintx:

    Too many folks peeing on my cheerios at the other one

    lmao! thnx for joining us! do we have ya on twitter? I’m @nabs1611 btw

  47. I started to say I don’t care what he wears- I just want to hear him sing but then I realized that’s not true. I can think of numerous things that I do not want to see him wear!

  48. Wasn’t the guyliner so much (I’ll just let Adam keep that) as the holding him down part I was aiming for. I mean, so I can fix his hair.

  49. lmao! thnx for joining us! do we have ya on twitter? I’m @nabs1611 btw

    Qui, and I’m following you. I’m FansOfLeon :)

  50. Just logged in. Lots of post to catch up on. Love it. I’ve changed my twitter name to jenmusicme1. Hopefully that will be easier to remember. I don’t normally twit as I’m always in and out of the net quickly and its hard to keep a convo going but I do read all your tweets. Thanks so much everyone.

    I see new twitter names here. I’ll be following you guys.

    David & Lee my 2 absolute fav singing together? I’m over the moon.

    ETA: Congratulations to everyone on reaching 1,000 post in the AP thread

  51. There’s a new video update on LDO. Nothing earth-shattering, just asking people to follow him on his various social networking sites. He reminds us we’ll get a “special performance” from him once he reaches a benchmark. Yeah, sure Lee. Promises are only promises. ;) I didn’t catch any secret gestures or code-words. Although he did clap alot… maybe the number of times he claps in the video is the number of writes/co-writes he has on the album?! Lol

  52. cristististi:

    LOL. :)

    ETA: bamintx, oh youre @FansofLeon! i noticed u following the MJers list. Followed back & added ya to list :)

  53. bamintx:
    I’m FansOfLeon

    I’m following you back now. All these twitter requests to follow come in but I don’t know who everyone is. Thanks for letting us know.

  54. Oh, good….I found the hidey hole. Maybe Lee’s video on LDO is helping cuz twitter followers jumped 660 in one day :) Someone mentioned 50,000 followers but it’s actually 52,590 last time I looked.

  55. Hey guys!

    Just wanted to let y’all know that Imkhemari & I just opened up another twitter account called @liveLEElists as a wider Lee’s MJers initiative. You can start following now or later! It’s just one place where we can run live twitter lists/feeds (like the one for the Arlington Park concert) to work in conjunction with Lee’s future (very long way off) show threads here at MJs. We know it’s super early to open one especially as Lee’s album nor new single is out, but we’re gonna be quite busy soon (real life calling) so just thought we should get it up & running. Of course it also helps with managing to find available twitter names.

    Thanks so much for being an amazing group of Lee fans to hang with ;) . A while back, Imkhemari offered to run these potential Lee concert threads & we all said we’d help. Well, the @liveLEElists account will need your help to run too of course (especially since we live on the opposite side of the world & in completely different timezones to most of ya) :)

  56. Thanks, Nabs and Imkhemari for handling this. I will begin following the new list.

  57. Nabs and Imkhemari, thanks for creating @liveLEElists! I’m following it now. I’ve been following the twitter lists of krinjalists for Kris Allen’s tour and I was hoping that there would eventually be one for Lee, even though his solo tour is still far way.

  58. I have a twitter account but am somewhat twitter illiterate….how do I follow @liveLEElists? I’m Heat1022…thanks!

  59. Powter48/Garrett, if you are out there lurking, come back, we miss you!

  60. Heat, I just sent you a tweet. Just go onto twitter and put your mouse over the @liveLeelist, and an icon will appear for you to follow the list.

  61. LeeDeWyze Morning! Hope everyone had a good night. Single coming out soon…(very excited :) Performance today, then we’ll see. Ill keep you posted.

    just popped up on twitter!!

  62. My favorite part was when LD and DC refer to wgwg, and were like what do they expect us to play? Harmonica, tuba, jugs…….

  63. nabs and Imkhemari. you guys are amazingsauce awesome to all of us here. Thank you.

    Also twitter-illiterate here but religiously following your tweets.
    I’ll be following all the above. I’m now rivermaya88.

    ETA: shoot, didn’t know there was even a LD/DC thread going on. Off to the other thread. Be back soon.
    And yes, I love this group!

  64. The DCO blog story was HILARIOUS. I’m glad someone posted it!

    Mini-rant: The LDO web people suck at posting videos in a timely manner. I wouldn’t be surprised if they filmed last night’s video weeks ago. It still bugs me that they labeled that one video “A look back at the idol tour” when it was actually Lee talking about the tour BEFORE it even started! Ugh. I don’t think I’ll be able to let that go haha.

  65. I said in the other thread that I’m glad the boys get to do a private show, and I really meant it. But…

    now I’m hoping someone sneaks out a photo or two so I can get another look at Lee’s hair and see if he fixed it. ;)

    Aaaannnnnd…if he’s tweeting again about the single being out soon, that’s GOTTA mean this week. Right?

  66. Single! – looks like its next on the agenda after this weekend!!!!

    Wow!!! Can’t wait!

  67. wjmtv:now I’m hoping someone sneaks out a photo or two so I can get another look at Lee’s hair and see if he fixed it

    LOL. You’re still not over the hair thing :)
    Seriously, I sure hope he won’t forget to put on some magic gel ( not a fan of the side bangs too).

    Aaaannnnnd…if he’s tweeting again about the single being out soon, that’s GOTTA mean this week. Right?

    I really hope so. If believe if he is finally tweeting about it, it means a single has been picked.

  68. now I’m hoping someone sneaks out a photo or two so I can get another look at Lee’s hair and see if he fixed it.

    I’m still not over the hair thing either. But I saw a photo of him in the red plaid shirt when he was still on the show. His hair was almost identical with a little less gel maybe and it looked fine. I think I just got used to seeing a LOT of hair on his head. He does have a gorgeous head of hair.

  69. I haven’t been posting here long so you guys might have already had this discussion, but what kind of single are you hoping for? Acoustic ballad, rock anthem, top 40 pop-rock?

  70. LMAO…that blog thingo is hilarious. I can actually imagine that conversation taking place ;)
    Ok Lee keeps saying “single soon”…it HAS TO come out this week!! well i want it to anyways.

    Oh & thnx for following liveLEElists guys :)

  71. ItsMyT1me, which kind stands to sell the most copies? That’s what I want.

    :)

    I’m guessing that would be the “Top 40” choice. Right?

    rivermaya, nope, not *at all* over the hair thing. I am ALL ABOUT the hair. Drives my husband nuts. Whenever we watch a historical movie or TV show and someone shows up with an inaccurate hairstyle, I start ranting. I can’t help myself. It’s a disease.

  72. I’m hoping for an Annabelle type song, where he can put his heart and soul into it. Something catchy but soulful!

    BTW – I’m okay with his hair.

  73. Powter48, if youre lurking around…if we’re right about your possible new twitter name, then i accidentally blocked u on the MJ list! Sorry!! Get back here ;)

    Please! :)

    I am crossings my fingers that this is the week Lee’s single will be released!

  75. I haven’t been posting here long so you guys might have already had this discussion, but what kind of single are you hoping for? Acoustic ballad, rock anthem, top 40 pop-rock

    I can’t decide. I love all that lee sings. Haha.

  76. I hope it’s a song like “Never There.” I love that song so much.
    But anything he sings, as long as it gets played on the radio.

  77. Just checked back on the AP post and someone just posted this ( just in case you missed it).

    imike : 10/02/2010
    Maybe I might was on a Wuli Records label sampler from 2006.They printed 1000 copies and included 5 other artists on Wuli.The samplers were handed out at Mobfest a local festival where Lee DeWyze Band played that year.Wuli is remixing and will be released in 2011.Don’t waste your time with the 2006 version because the 2011 version is excellent.

    wonder who imike is? someone from wuli perhaps (?!)

  78. ooo nice find, Rivermaya! That def sounds like someone from WuLi! they found us!
    So i guess we’re getting that new Lee album next year :) :)

  79. Can you believe Lee did Maybe You Might 4 years ago!!!! He was 20 years old! He was born with that talent!

  80. I missed you guys! I was without Internet for two days! And for any new readers here, my Twitter name is the same name here. I don’t have the time to find everyone I am not following right now but if you add me I will add you back.

    Very interesting info about MYM, the new version. I hope WuLi knows that we will immediately purchase and support any new material they choose to release. I just want more music, I’m greedy like that!

    IMT, great question. I also love the vibe of Never There and that could work great as a commercial single. I also would like to see something really singer-songwriter type to really differentiate his sound right off the bat. I’m prepared for the album and especially the single to sound a little bit more on the pop side but judging from Only Dreaming Lee is really going to be able to showcase his unique style well. I hope it is a song that can do well on both HAC and Top 40 radio but it would be coolnif he could get a strong foothold on HAC because Top 40 is so fickle.

    I’m hoping one of these days for a longer video on LDO but really I’ve been impressed with how often they put them up. I seriously think there have been more videos posted on LDO than DCO in the last 2+ years. Lol I really hope the have Lee do some videos describing his album tracks (similar to what Archie is doing now).

  81. Hey everybody- new to posting on MJs, have been a lurker but Nabs convinced me to show my face. I am a fellow BeLEEver, love Lees preidol work and can’t wait for “soon” to be here. I take it no video has surfaced yet of the Feeding America performance?? Arlington Park was amazing but it has only fueled my hunger for more Lee!
    by the way I am Sunnydai_ on twitter.

  82. Wow, Lee looks kinda frumpy. Get a grip dude. Ya look like you just rolled out of bed.

  83. tigervixxen, do you think the single will release next week? Lee tweeted this today: Morning! Hope everyone had a good night. Single coming out soon…(very excited :) Performance today, then we’ll see. Ill keep you posted.

  84. glad u came outta hiding, Sunnydai!
    Youre so right about the AP concert fueling the hunger for more Lee!

    Agreed artemis & tigervixxxen, song with a Never There-like vibe could really work as a hit single! I remember when we first heard NT, everyone was saying how commercial and radio-ready it was whilst still holding onto Lee’s style. :)

  85. Yes I do think we will hear some news about the single next week but it is possible that we won’t. 6 weeks out does seem to be a good time to get the ball rolling on it. I still don’t think the announcement>streaming> release for sale > release to radio will all happen in one week but they could announce and have the song streaming fairly quickly. It will be exciting to wait and see what happens this week. I also would guess that Lee would be finished recording the album in a couple of weeks since they need about a month of post production, packaging, ect.

  86. tigervixxxen, glad you’re back! Don’t you think it will be week after next, with perhaps some official news about it this week? I think it will drop a week from Tuesday, October 12.

    rivermaya, that’s a very interesting post about Wuli. I’m glad to hear that we’ll get some new music from them next year.

    I’m hoping for the new single to be similar to Never There – harder vocals, maybe a little angsty and not too pop.

  87. I have a question about radio play. Are there strict guidelines to what can be played? Can Lee’s pre-idol music be played and which ones? What about his idol iTunes covers? Someone said Kris Allen’s “Heartless” gets played, or did they just say downloaded? I know the radio station they tune into at work in the office (the pa system plays syrius- lots of idol songs there) but in the office part the radio djs discuss idol and play what they did that week, (performance videos). But those are radio talk shows but I’ve yet to hear Lee on regular radio.:(

  88. That def sounds like someone from WuLi! they found us!

    I think word is getting around about our Lee threads on MJ. It’s funny how people and even critics are popping in. Pretty cool! Maybe one day Lee will show up!

    Welcome Sunnydai! My twitter name is KWOnlyDreaming.

    I hope it’s a song like “Never There.” I love that song so much.
    But anything he sings, as long as it gets played on the radio.

    Never There is my most played song on my mp3 player!! I never get tired of it. Tigervixxxen, for me, it’s Lee’s “Kiss on the Neck.” ;) And if any of you Lee-only fans have never heard DC’s Kiss on the Neck, try this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzOgd-CGC3A Don’t worry, I apply equal pressure to try to convert my David-only fans into Lee fans too and it’s working… a little. ;) I just love them both and hope everyone can appreciate both because it’s only good for both!!

    But back to Lee… I love the many sides of Lee’s music.

    I like the hard-rocking sound of NT, mixed with the piano, and the very angsty, urgent vocals. NT is such a departure from So I’m Told and Slumberland. It’s more in the vein of Princess-Reprise, which I always suspected was more Ryan/Louis influence than Lee’s. That said, if that’s the direction Wuli plans to go with MYM 2011, it will just add to the diversity and hopefully wider appeal of Lee, so I’m all for that! Especially if RCA produces more Only Dreaming type songs (which, yes I love that too!).

    11/16 can’t come soon enough! And I’m looking forward to 2011 to see what else Wuli brings us. You know, I think I like the variety produced by having two battling labels. HaHa. It really shows all that Lee is capable of. (Throw in a little Ain’t-No-Sunshine-a-la-Village-Underground or Annabelle type, and I’ll be a totally happy camper.)

  90. ItsMyTime, if it means more Lee music out there, let the battle begin!

  91. Dlynne, yeah that sounds like a good guess. Although I remember with Kris’ single they put it up for sale on his website on Friday and then iTunes on Tuesday. I always thought that was odd because it split the sales week.

    April, technically radio stations can play whatever they want, such as in your example of them playing Idol songs the week of their performances. (Those were usually part of the Idol Beat type of morning after talk that the DJs would play, not that the songs were on the playlist.) However they all follow their format strictly and the charts basically dictate what they play. Any song that doesn’t have a strong label push behind it (such as any indie or pre Idol songs) can’t get play on the radio because it takes a lot of money and promotion to do so. There are a few stations that buck the trends and rules such as the one that *still* plays Kris’ Heartless but they are usually smaller market and independently owned and those spins will never add up to enough radio play to move up the charts.

  92. ItsMyT1me- ITA

    I like the way you put it…urgent vocals-I love when Lee sings like that! It just grabs my heart!
    I hope his album is a mix of the three different vibes exemplified by Never There, Annabelle, and Only Dreaming.
    Lee made wise choices in choosing the songs he performed on Idol. If he gets any input on choosing the single, it will be a song that’s radio ready. I hope it’s one he has writing credit on, but the most important thing is radio play.

  93. I’m feeling lazy & i’m just gonna find myself basically repeating what y’all have said but just wanted to say…

    ItsMyT1me:

    You know, I think I like the variety produced by having two battling labels. HaHa. It really shows all that Lee is capable of. (Throw in a little Ain’t-No-Sunshine-a-la-Village-Underground or Annabelle type, and I’ll be a totally happy camper.)

    Word…

    & word!

    :)

    Oh and sorry to steal words again but just gotta say…Imkhemari reckons imike could be Mike DeWyze ;)

  94. I also think it’s Mike Dewyze.

    Word just in from Japan-Adam has shaved both sides of his head. What is it with these Idol guys. They can’t leave well enough alone. An epidemic of bad hair days. I hope all their hair grows fast. Or in DC’s case, hairs.
    I remember, back in my dating era, guys would have this gorgeous, luxurious hair, then a hot day would come along and they would get it all buzzed off to be cooler (temperature-wise only, I assure you)
    without even consulting their girlfriends! They looked like dorks. Well, I see nothing about male behavior has changed.
    Anxiously awaiting at least a picture from Napa. Did he fluff his hair back up? Mike- tell him he looks better that way.

  95. Powter/Garrett, if you are lurking please come back, we miss your banter!

  96. ItsMyT1me:

    LOL! But let’s face it, if Cookie had perfect hair too, I’d begin to wonder if he was human.

  97. Powter/Garrett, if you are lurking please come back, we miss your banter!

    Yes, Garrett, please come back! It’s not the same without you. If we’ve hurt your feelings in some way, we sincerely apologize. If you believe you’ve let us down, you couldn’t be more wrong!! We adore you and value your input. We’re very sad. :(
    Also, we’re a bunch of crazy, relentless fan-girls! We aren’t going to stop bugging you till you come back!

  98. Sunnydai, nice to see you here too! :D I’m glad you de-lurked.

    ItsMyT1me, I love your DC videos…I watched Kiss on the Neck and ended up watching the other vids from his Busch Gardens show. And now I’m subscribing to your channel :D You have a great collection of videos of other Idols, not just Lee and David.

    Ok, back to Leon. I love Never There too and I also think that something similar to that would work well as Lee’s 1st single.

  99. Aw, thanks Katya. I’m glad you enjoyed them. I can’t wait to add some LIVE solo tour videos of Lee!!

  100. Powter48/Garrett, where art thou?

    Also, we’re a bunch of crazy, relentless fan-girls! We aren’t going to stop bugging you till you come back!

    very true.

    ItsMyT1me, your world domination plan is working real well ;)

  101. I love Never There, too. I thought Wuli over-produced it, but the song is fabulous! It would have made a great single!

  102. I can see a Stay-type song being the single. The entire song builds to that climax “I haven’t slept yet” and I think that kind of song is perfect for the radio.

  103. Powter48/Garrett if you are reading this, we miss you please come back and Stay for awhile!! :)

    Loved Never there, I agree that it was a tad bit overdone!!

  104. There is a part in Never There where the instruments are too loud and overwhelm Lee’s voice-his voice should always be out front- but otherwise I really like it.

  105. Although I remember with Kris’ single they put it up for sale on his website on Friday and then iTunes on Tuesday. I always thought that was odd because it split the sales week.

    tigervixxxen, that is weird. Jive does some strange things. Hopefully, RCA doesn’t do that. I don’t think they will.

    There is a part in Never There where the instruments are too loud and overwhelm Lee’s voice-his voice should always be out front- but otherwise I really like it.

    artemis, that really bugs me. I’ve described it before as having the layers in the wrong order. Lee’s vocals should always be on top.

    ETA: I still can’t get over the fact that Lee recorded Maybe You Might at least four years ago. He’s so crazy talented.

  106. He’s so crazy talented.

    It is amazing that he wrote so many of his songs at such at young age. Even the songs from Slumberland were probably written when he was about 22. It takes time from the songwriting process before it gets into the studio.

  107. He’s so crazy talented.

    It’s always said that songwriting is all about life experience(s) that one goes through and pours into song lyrics.
    SO so much has transpired in the life of Lee Dewyze from Slumberland to his journey in AI and then now…..I truly believe his songwriting is just going to get even better. Can’t wait for the single and the album.

  108. artemis:

    I agree…I love Never There but when I listen to it, there’s a part (towards the end) where I’d have to lower the volume because the guitars are too loud. I do wish Wuli didn’t over produce it and drown out Lee’s voice. I wish we can see Lee perform this song live one day. I can just imagine how good the song sounds when it’s stripped down.

  109. I’ve been thinking about his songwriting for awhile now. We’ve joked about the repeating theme of sleeping and dreaming (the second album is even titled Slumberland) but I really think that’s just a literal translation. Dave Matthews once said that all of his songs were about sex on some level. I think a lot of Lee’s songs are about intimacy as well as a few about sex. He’s very much a romantic, which makes it even more surprising to me that he wrote a lot of his older material when he was 19-22 years old.

  110. Thank you for info tigervixxen. #Garrettcomeback !
    I read somewhere that Lee would go on a break at work and compose a song…. Just that quick! Sometimes it can happen like that. I write poems like that….when inspiration hits, it flows, when blah….nada.

  111. It’s always said that songwriting is all about life experience(s) that one goes through and pours into song lyrics.

    I think so too. At one of Lee’s first twitter parties, I asked him if he was having trouble writing songs with everything going on in his life. He said that the writing sessions had been easy for him because he had lots to write about. I can’t wait to hear the songs that he’s created in the midst of the craziness of his life.

  112. I love that description about how Never There, Annabelle and Only Dreaming exemplify the rock, blues and folk sides of Lee. I think he uses different “voices” on those songs too. I’d also love to hear all 3 types of songs on the album.

  113. Dave Matthews once said that all of his songs were about sex on some level.

    They certainly are.

    I thought I was the only one who noticed that! Silly me. Yeah, I like how he turns “the grit” in his voice off and on, and when he chooses to do it. There’s usually a reason.

  114. On my long road trip this weekend I pondered on the fact that I especially enjoy all the words that Lee sings with the “ay” sound. They, say, face, baby, ect. Just a random thought ;)

    I have also noticed some of the thematic choices Lee decided to cover in his Idol songs. The boy is a romantic. :)

  115. Yeah, I like how he turns “the grit” in his voice off and on, and when he chooses to do it. There’s usually a reason.

    Very true!. Lee is capable of doing so much with voice! I think that is what makes his songs so irresistible, and the lyrics he writes are meaningful, poetic and sometimes haunting. Quite a feat for one so young!

  116. enjoy all the words that Lee sings with the “ay” sound.

    haha ditto! like the way he says “baby” in MYM!

    He certainly is a romantic & turns that grit on and off perfectly as y’all said. The many layers of his voice is amazing & just so appealing :)How can you not be drawn in? ;)

    Btw, I reeeally wanna see the videos of Lee performing at this event!!

  117. Lee’s voice is so multi-dimensional. It’s like 3 voices all wrapped into one very handsome and humble package :)

  118. Yup. I love all the layers in Lee’s voice too. They are all so captivating. :)

  119. I love the way he sings “honey” on Lips of an Angel. Had to go listen to it for the gazillionth time to make sure.

  120. I love the way he sings “honey” on Lips of an Angel

    I felt like he was singing that part to me personally, wishful thinking!

    I’m keeping my fingers cross for his new single this week.

  121. Lol yeh, his eye-to-camera connection thingo was so good that night!

    As for this:

    I’m keeping my fingers cross for his new single this week.

    Me too! but seeing as we’ve heard that singles usually come out on Tuesdays..that would be tomorrow, so im guessing next week. However, wishful thinking is good! It could still happen!!

  122. I love the way he sings “honey” on Lips of an Angel.

    Me, too! I love it so much, I made it my ring-tone. Only problem is, I want to hear Lee instead of whoever’s calling. I actually listen for a bit before I’ll answer the call.

  123. On my long road trip this weekend I pondered on the fact that I especially enjoy all the words that Lee sings with the “ay” sound. They, say, face, baby, ect. Just a random thought

    I never really thought about that but thinking about all the songs he sings that I love, those are my fav. parts of the song too.

    The boy is a romantic

    Yes he is I hope we hear more of that side on his album! Im sure we will!! :)

    Yeah, I like how he turns “the grit” in his voice off and on, and when he chooses to do it. There’s usually a reason.

    I just dont want them to auto-tune the grit out!!

  124. Ok, you guys made me have to go watch Lips of An Angel, again. :wink: I love how he held onto that mic for dear life, the swaying, the foot stomping, the eye contact, especially when he sings “I wish she was you”, the smiles,the t shirt only showing tattoos, the slippy pants and I’ll stop there.

  125. Lips of an Angel was amazing. His hair looked really dark that night. I always thought that was weird.

    I know we’ve all watched it 1567567 times by now and talked about it, but seriously. Crash Into Me from last week. That’s all I have to say. Lol.

  126. What is going on people? We need to stop all this frivolous chitchat. We shouldn’t be having so much fun! We are discussing AI after all, and it should be serious… very, very serious! We have to stop with all this talk about Lee’s beautiful eyes, his wonderful hair, his warm and giving personality, his undeniable ability to connect emotionally to his audience, his unbelievable song writing talent, and of course, his amazing and mesmerizing voice! Shouldn’t we be discussing what’s really important? Sure, Lee is helping to Feed America, but is that enough, I ask you? We haven’t even broached the topic of what Lee thinks should be done about the Mid East peace talks. Nor is there any mention here about Lee’s take on international terrorism. Instead, sadly, we resort to brainless, ‘hormonal gushing’! OMG, OMG, OMG, it is shameful!
    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some important business to take care of. I’m going to go watch and listen to LOAA again, then ANS again, then (along with 20,399 other people) CIM again, then Annabelle again, then Stay again, then Only Dreaming again, then…………………

  127. ITA anniem47-we should be discussing serious issues instead of letting Lee’s amazingsauce drive our conversation .That’s why I’ve been searching twitter for clues.Why such secrecy about this weekend? What have DC, Lee and Neil really been up to if not some undercover project for the good of mankind?
    Lee probably fixed his hair like that to throw us off the scent. He knew fangirls are easily distracted by trivial physical attributes;we can’t help it- our hormones make us act this way.

  128. Guys did you see these:

    Blake Porter:
    Had a great time hangin’ with David Cook and Lee Dewize former Idol winners. Keep being real fellas’ – I miss Cali already!!!!
    »
    @DRCcarpenter I thought I already was. I am now. David is very genuine and real. As a Pastor I was very impressed with his kind spirit.
    »
    Oops! I spelled Lee Dewyze wrong. No disrespect bro!!! Thanks again for the time in San Fran.

    Chief Big Mouth @ BPM, Creator of Youth Waves radio spots, Speaker, Thinker, Husband, Lil’ Prophets Dad, World Champion Coffee Drinker, http://www.mscc.tv http://www.blakespeaks.com

    The plot thickens – a clue! Wonder if it was filmed for some program? And if Lee and David sang some of their new songs?

    ETA Going to post this in the D&L and Headlines!

  129. artemis, Exactly! If we notice and appreciate all of those trivial things about the rightful AI winner then it must, surely, be a sign that we have way too many hormones and way, WAY too little intellect. So, naturally, it would be obvious to any intelligent person that we could be easily fooled!
    OUCH! My brain is beginning to hurt from all of these big words and deep thoughts! OMGOMGOMG!!!!, ahhh, that makes me feel better!

    btw, Feeding America is a wonderful organization, so thank you Lee for donating your time to help people less fortunate than most of us!

  130. Imkhemari that second link seems to be broken. :(

    anniem47 and artemis LOL Too funny!!

    Feeding America is a good cause thank you Lee for all you do!! :)

  131. anniem47- I wondered why my head was hurting. Big words, deep concepts and hormones-I had to grip the edge of the fainting couch. And I don’t even have all that many hormones left!

    Thank you so much Lee for your work on behalf of Feeding America. So many need help in this economy.

  132. Imkhemari, now I’m even more curious about what type of event it was.

  133. I was picking up my son from school soccer game and listening to Lips of An Angel in the car. When he said honey, I swear he was singing to me!

  134. About the ay sound….I’ve been wondering if the Chicago accent is a factor in the song “Falling Slowly”. He sings a-race and a-nough for erase and enough. I like it, I just figured it was an accent thing. FS is one of my favorite songs.

  135. Maybe accent he also has a slight lisp..can really hear it in Simple Man from the show!! I love the lisp :)

  136. Oh yeah, and those of you that have too many hormones….throw some my way, I ran out!!

  137. aprilfoolish,

    Hehe…lisp of an angel!!!

    LOL! Your hormones may have run out, but your sense of humor is intact!

  138. LMAO. anniem47 & artemis, that was hilarious ;)

    Nothing new on Lee :( Hopefully we get an interview or ANYTHING with Lee and David from that Blake Porter guy.

  139. aprilfoolish- hahaha!

    I love his Chicago accent! You drove me to listen to FS yet again. Their voices sound so good together. I like the way they sound even more than the original duo, though I love “Once” and bought the album specifically to get that song. I bought Kris’s lovely version, too.But L & C sang it best!

    And Lee’s Hallelujah is the best ever.

    Nabs-somebody should tweet Blake Porter and get him to spill.

  140. My favorite version of Falling Slowly is actually from Ford Day. Lee changed up his parts a bit and he sounded great. He and Crystal’s voices do blend well together.

  141. Ah, yes, “Lips of an Angel.” That was only the second time I’d seen him (after CC, of course) and in the notes I made that night, I wrote, “Good vibe. Nice rasp. Don’t hitch up your pants!”

    But I did rate him #1 for the night. 2 & 3 were Alex Lambert and Big Mike.

    Casey’s comment was, “Potential.” Heh.

  142. wjmtv, you wrote notes too? I thought I was the only dork to do that. Oh, wait, I just called you a dork. Sorry ;) (lol) I had Lee, Casey, then Mike that night.

    ETA: That doesn’t sound good… I had Lee 1st, Casey 2nd, and Mike in 3rd that night. Yeah, that’s better.

  143. Don’t hitch up your pants!”

    LOL I love it!! :)

    I had Lee, Casey, then Mike that night.

    An amazing night? ;) ( lol j/k )

  144. You guys are on a roll tonight! Thanks for the laughs! By the way, what Chicago accent??

    That cute northern accent!! ;)

  146. Lee is ay- mazing!

    I just realized we are omg-ing!!
    I love it!!!

  147. wjmtv got me thinking (dangerous), so I looked back at my recaps for the first time I noticed Lee. I’ve confirmed that this first comment was Hollywood Week…

    Wednesday, February 17, 2010 – 10:25
    ItsMyTime: … I’m kinda interested in seeing what Lee Dewyze can do. Overall, he got very little face time, but I was a little intrigued by his husky voice. We’ll see.

    ETA: Okay, so I’m amusing myself, but I looked at my recap from Top 24 and this is what I had to say about Lee…

    Wednesday, February 24, 2010 – 22:24
    ItsMyTime: Lovin’ Lee (and the David Cook references…)

    Wednesday, February 24, 2010 – 23:51
    ItsMyTime: I liked Lee and Casey best. Lee reminded me a little of David. He seemed really sincere and almost looked teary-eyed when he got good feedback from Simon.

  148. Ah, yes, “Lips of an Angel.” That was only the second time I’d seen him (after CC, of course)

    You guys just made me watch those 2 episodes again.
    Gah, he was soooo passionate singing Lips.
    And seriously, I don’t even recall what the others sang those 2 nights.
    Squeeeeeee :)

  149. OMG! he definitely has a Chicago/northern accent that I adore.

    I believe Feb 17 would have been a Hollywood Week episode, no???

    Yeah, I think so. He was on your radar early. I remember seeing him at his audition and thought, he sounds good but why is he singing a song that Kris covered so well just last season. Believe me I don’t say that anymore. I do appreciate both their versions, well maybe one more than the other, now. :wink:

    Top 24 reveal night when the judges and Kara made it seem like he was not going thru, gahhh! Kara, that was mean he looked so heart broken. He was so happy and relieved that he made the top 24.

  150. I loved the follow up video after he made it where he’s so excited and says idol was the biggest show, in like, THE WORLD!!!

  151. Disclaimer: I love Lee’s version of LOAA now, but apparently I wasn’t THAT big a fan of the song on March 2 (and I guess I thought he had a posture issue – sorry Lee!!) Here’s the recap I dug up from Top 20:

    Tuesday, March 2, 2010 – 23:45
    ItsMyTime: … Not a fan of Hinder per se, but didn’t hold it against Lee. Nerves aside, I think he did a mostly good job. I think he has the most potential out of all the guys. I want to put a phonebook on his head, though, and make him walk across the room without dropping it (wink).

  152. I looked up the comments I wrote on DCO a little while ago too. It took me a while to completely acknowledge my affection of Lee but I was intrigued after LOAA. Right around the Boxer time sealed the deal. I also went on a cruise that wekk and put a few Lee songs on my iPod before leaving. I think I listened to All Fall Down about a hundred times that week. Then I watched the Boxer performance on the ship and after that it was sealed. I did pick Lee to win at top 12 so I knew he could go the distance then ;)

  153. I was working Wednesday night the first few weeks so I missed a few performances, my hubby actually noticed him first…called him the “Hootie” guy cause he thought he sounded like hootie and the blowfish. How funny that the hootie guy was actually the hoodie guy!

  154. No worries, ItsMyT1me, I’m a colassal dork.

    I’m with you, ldjfan. What Chicago accent?
    wjmtv, Upnearrockford, IL

    This has been bugging me, but I bet y’all will know. Which episode was it where all the idols were talking about each other before they performed, and everyone said Lee was always such a worrywort. I remember this hilarious clip they had of him sitting in front of a laptop with his head in his hands moaning, “Guys, I’m going home this week.”

  155. I really don’t hear the accent so I must have the same one,lol. Lee did an interview on July 17th with Sportstown Chicago that is one of my favorites and I can maybe hear the “Chicago” accent there. Lee is so relaxed, like he’s talking to a friend on the phone so I think this might be his normal conversation voice. See what you think – http://www.sportstownchicago.com/americanidol.cfm . He admits to singing Disney songs when no one is listening!

  156. Wjmtv, it was during top 9 night that they interviewed each other. You can find the video on you tube.

  157. Top 9 week or so? Katie and Andrew were still there. In that video.

    Lee definitely has an accent :) It is cute and I love listening to it. I’m from the land of no accents so it is always fun for me to hear them.

  158. Thank you! I knew my CCLEE fans wouldn’t let me down. :)

    Now I’m really wanting to hear Lee sing “Under the Sea” in the shower.

    FOR THE ACOUSTICS, PEOPLE. NOTHING NEFARIOUS.

    Oh Yeah :)
    ETA:ldjfan thank you for the link:)

  160. Well, I’m from Tennessee and we think all the rest of y’all talk funny. Except Lee.

  161. Yeah that was beatles week? The birth of Danny Gokey babies. Tim’s smile, Casey’s laugh, I loved that night!

  162. I’m from Denver, we don’t have any accent or so I’ve been told ;)

  163. artemis – Tennessee people have the best accents in the country! So fun to listen to. And y’all are the nicest, friendliest, most polite people anywhere.

  164. Top 24 reveal night when the judges and Kara made it seem like he was not going thru, gahhh! Kara, that was mean he looked so heart broken. He was so happy and relieved that he made the top 24.

    I loved his “are you kidding me right now?” So adorable. I remember being intrigued by his brief audition clip so he was on my radar during Hollywood week. Seeing his reaction to making to top 24 I thought he seemed really endearing and so he was on my list as being one to watch. Then he really impressed me with his song choices during semis.

  165. Landmd:
    10/04/2010 at 7:12 pm
    Maybe accent he also has a slight lisp..can really hear it in Simple Man from the show!! I love the lisp

    Wow…no one has ever mentioned “the lisp” but I noticed it ever so slightly on just some of the songs he sings. I honestly don’t hear it when he is speaking? It’s hard to sing “s’s” so his might just come out a little lispy….personally, I love it, too!

    I’m only 6 hours from Chicago and they definitely have an accent :)

    I’ve watched Top 24 vid so many times and I always want to tell Lee….they’re just kidding!!!!! You’re through! (((((hug)))))

  166. Well, I must like the bad boys, because during his 2 first songs on to 24 when they showed clips of Lee with the hoodie and tattoes he looked kind of scruffy and grungie and I was like wow, he’s hot!

  167. I loved his “are you kidding me right now?” So adorable.

    and all the “shut ups” like he could not believe it was happening.

    I definitely like the bad boys. :)

  168. Wow, I go to sleep and wake up to a discussion about how Lee’s a “baaaaaaad boy”…. nice lol.

    As far as accents when you sing, the only thing I know is that the vowels don’t have an accent at all because the throat is open. That’s why British people usually don’t have an accent when they sing.

  169. Thanks ldjfan-thats so sweet. I’ve been to the Chicago area several times and the people are great!
    I wonder if Lee has made much progress with his 60,000 boxes?

  170. Wow…no one has ever mentioned “the lisp” but I noticed it ever so slightly on just some of the songs he sings. I honestly don’t hear it when he is speaking? It’s hard to sing “s’s” so his might just come out a little lispy….personally, I love it, too!

    I have never heard the lisp when he is speaking, just on a few songs!

    As far as accents when you sing, the only thing I know is that the vowels don’t have an accent at all because the throat is open. That’s why British people usually don’t have an accent when they sing

    .

    Only person I can think of that I somewhat hear an accent when she sings is Adele.

  171. Since they are talking about Lee’s tweet about the album cover in Headlines, I went back and watched the video again, then looked at the Yahoo video page and it had 10,473 views! He looks so great-I can’t wait to see what they picked!

  172. “Bad boy” my ass.

    LOL! He’s got that bad boy image but we know he has a really good heart. I cannot get over the hair at this FA event. It’s be nice when we can move to a new thread. Let’s hope he corrected that since last week.

  173. It’s be nice when we can move to a new thread.

    Especially since we all know what that thread is going to be about. I’ve got the streamers and a margarita machine. Who’s bringing hors d’oeuvres?

  174. Especially since we all know what that thread is going to be about. I’ve got the streamers and a margarita machine. Who’s bringing hors d’oeuvres?

    Yes! party time soon! I’ll bring some vodka, cranberry juice and some kind of crackers and dip.

  175. Especially since we all know what that thread is going to be about. I’ve got the streamers and a margarita machine. Who’s bringing hors d’oeuvres?
    Got it covered! :) Shots may be in order, so I’ll bring salt and lemons, too! :)

    Got it covered! Shots may be in order, so I’ll bring salt and lemons, too!

    And I’ll bring my big ass KARAOKE machine !
    We can all party up and take turn singing Lee originals and covers :)

  178. I still want to look lean for Lee so I’ll bring a veggie platter and some light beer!

  179. Lol kvwicks13-I thought you said lean on Lee! I’ll second that!

    We need dessert. I’ll bring the cupcakes.

  180. I dunno, anniem is pretty darned dedicated. Maybe we should let her have him.

  181. You girls can fight over Lee as long as it’s AFTER he sings. Pass the lemon and shots :)

  182. ItsMyT1me:
    10/05/2010 at 3:44 pm
    You girls can fight over Lee as long as it’s AFTER he sings.

    I’ll drink to that!

    And lookie there…a glass already in my hand. How conveeeenient.

  183. Okay, I just read a list of Lee’s favorites, and he prefers brownies to cupcakes , so scratch the cupcakes-I’ll bring brownies, as well as rocky road ice cream. After dealing with 60,000 boxes, he’ll need to keep his strength up.

  184. wjmtv

    I dunno, anniem is pretty darned dedicated. Maybe we should let her have him.

    YAY!!! :) :) :)
    But wait…..we are all pretty darned dedicated, so I’ve decided I will share him with all of you! :)

  185. I’ll bring the sloppy joes :) Looks like there will be pleny of margarita’s (my fav)

  186. So, I are we having this party at Lee’s new house?

    I’m so there – virtually!

  187. Does he realize that with this much help, those 60,000 boxes would be dealt with in no time?

  188. Ok, just need to say to anniem I was not trying to start anything. Only having some fun. I love you all and Lee! So hugs to everyone and pass the liquor! :)

    All I want is to look into his pretty eyes, tell him how he is the Amazingness Sauce of music and give him a hug. Oh yeah and definitely hear him sing a few songs new and old.

  189. Have you all seen the photo the pastor tweeted of him and Lee at the airport? There is one there of David Cook as well. So he must have just met the guys at the airport and not the event.

    http://yfrog.com/4bp1jstj

  190. Does he realize that with this much help, those 60,000 boxes would be dealt with in no time?

    I think being in the same room with Lee would be so distracting I wouldn’t get anything done! I’d be in a trance!

  191. AIaddict, ;)

    All I want is to look into his pretty eyes, tell him how he is the Amazingness Sauce of music and give him a hug. Oh yeah and definitely hear him sing a few songs new and old.

    Me, too!!! :)

  192. Just got back home and it’s past midnight . catching up with you all .
    Well, I’ll take whatever’s left over…..lol.
    p.s. hmm, still no news on the single!

  193. All we need is Lee and we are ready to party! Did he RSVP yet to the invite?

  194. All we need is Lee’s SINGLE and we are ready to party. ;)

    Although it would be nice if he could join us….

  195. There’s a new/old video at LDO. It’s new but talks about tour stuff so kind of behind on what’s going on now.

    Yeah, we need Lee’s single and a nice new thread in which to hold this most epic party!

    ETA: Trying out a new twitter name: MaybeYouMight

  196. Yeah, we need Lee’s single and a nice new thread in which to hold this most epic party!

    Yes!!! And then, five weeks later, we can have an even “more epicer” party!!!
    ( I are a English major ) :)

  197. All of this exciting news is making me a little verklempt! I need a moment. Talk among yourselves! :)

  198. In case anyone missed the tweet:

    AmericanIdol.com will have some special news about Season 9 champ @LeeDeWyze tomorrow. Stay tuned!

    It really seems like the right timing for some single news but I can’t remember what, if any, type of news the Idol website has broken. So it could be some other type of news. I have my fingers crossed though. And either way it should be exciting whatever it is!

  199. I really hope its single news. I did look at what they tweet and they do tweet about album releases, also they tweeted about Kris’ single release. So I guess we will see tom. :)

    ETA: Kris’ single tweeted they just RT i think.

  200. ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy

    alright this HAS TO BE the single release date announcement! If so, anniem your prediction is half-right already! All we need after that is the single to come out on Tuesday!

    ..Or-

    Maybe he’s getting married.

    *ducks*

    YES…and maybe to me ;)

    *ducks*

  201. nabs,

    alright this HAS TO BE the single release date announcement! If so, anniem your prediction is half-right already! All we need after that is the single to come out on Tuesday!

    Did I predict that? I can’t remember, I have a short attention span. :)

  202. LOL.
    Well, let me clarify for you, anniem. Yesterday you went ahead & predicted that Lee’s single release date would be announced on…
    Wait, what was I saying?

    sorry i’ve lost interest

  203. lol thnx :)

    Here’s an ACTUAL tweet ;) –

    @RCAPromo:

    OK all you Lee DeWyze @LeeDeWyze fans out there…keep following @RCAPromo & @RyanSeacrest…exciting news SOON!!

    Lee just tweeted!

    @LeeDeWyze

    My super-secret single is coming out SOON, guys. Shhh http://twitpic.com/2v9jjx

    Not to change the subject, but do we know where that picture was taken?

    wjm, wondering if she should get excited that Brandon’s still with him…

  205. I think it was taken at the GMA ‘Concert in the Park’ this summer.

  206. Yes, that’s what he was wearing at the GMA concert!

    Can’t wait for single news tomorrow!

  207. Definitely at GMA when he did the epic beatboxing.
    Isn’t that kinda creepy that we all know exactly which appearance Lee was on just by looking at his shirt?

  208. Yikes. Did you guys just mention Lee’s single will be out tomorrow? Is this confirmed?
    (sorry been kinda bz so still catching up).

    wjmtv, I just remembered that you have a thing for “hair”.
    At least one thing is guaranteed, Lee will have “good hair” on his album cover ( I just went back to watch the photo shoot again) :)

  209. rivermaya, AI and RCA are saying something is happening tomorrow, not sure what.

  210. Thanks anniem47. Anything Lee is newsworthy for me.
    I’ll make sure to check in again tomorrow.

  211. Isn’t that kinda creepy that we all know exactly which appearance Lee was on just by looking at his shirt?

    I laughed at that. Yes it is kind of creepy so we are like either uber fans or stalkers! I remember every shirt or outfit he wore on idol and the song he sang that night as well.

  212. At least one thing is guaranteed, Lee will have “good hair” on his album cover ( I just went back to watch the photo shoot again)

    YES. so relieved!

    Btw, Lee tweeted again (such a meany ;) )-
    @LeeDeWyze:

    My lips are sealed. My super-secret single SOON ;) http://twitpic.com/2va6yw

  213. I remember every shirt or outfit he wore on idol and the song he sang that night as well

    Which night from Idol is the top photo on LDO from? I feel like a bad fan that I can’t figure it out!

    I am beyond excited for the news tomorrow :)

  214. Nabs-hahaha!

    Well, I know the performance he wore the blue t shirt and slippy pants.

  215. siiiiiiiiiiiingle soooooooooooon :)

    It would seriously be too funny if the single is called ‘Soon’.

  216. nabs, I think it would be hilarious if the single is called Soon.

    I wonder if Lee is getting any sleep tonight.

  217. artemis:

    Grrrrr I’ll never get this quote thing right!

    After you copy and paste just rehighlight the text you want quoted then hit b/quote. :)

  219. The promise of tomorrow is Today!
    Where is it???
    Well technically today has another 14 hours. Is Lee really going to torture us to the very last minute?
    ETA: funny how his fans on twitter are all out and about….waiting.

  220. After you copy and paste just rehighlight the text you want quoted then hit b/quote.

    Just trying this ^

    Song titles? Any guesses?

    Soon
    Soon I’ll Sleep
    Soon I’ll Wake
    Soon I’ll Dream

    ETA Clearly I haven’t quite figured out this quote thing

  221. ETA Clearly I haven’t quite figured out this quote thing

    Make sure its still highlighted when you hit b-quote.

    Dang Ryan come on we are waiting!!

  222. After you copy and paste just rehighlight the text you want quoted then hit b/quote.

    did this work?

    eta nope!

  223. G’morning my American friends :) Just keeping up with your tweets since i dont get the live stream! Lets hope we get SOMETHING..

    btw aprilfoolish, it did work! “did this work” is b-quoted now :)

  224. Just keeping up with your tweets since i dont get the live stream! Lets hope we get SOMETHING..

    What? Live stream? Holy cow i missed something. Running to see!

  225. Hello :D ! I’ve been away for 3 days…work related event so I haven’t been to mj’s much. But I’ve been lurking on twitter so I kinda still know what’s going on. I’m hoping Ryan announces the BIG news soon…I can’t listen to the live stream since I’m in asia but I’ve been following the tweets and seems like everyone is suffering from the music he’s been playing.

    ETA: There’s something wrong with Twitter – I can’t post tweets (“Internal Server Error”) and my timeline isn’t updating. The last tweet on my timeline was posted 18 minutes ago :/

  226. I noticed the twitter problem, too…

    We would stop suffering if Ryan would give us some Lee news…come on already!!!

  227. I didn’t just spend 3 hours listening to Ryan’s show for NOTHING. Oh well. :(

  228. I’m trying to figure out where it was suggested that Ryan would have an announcement. Was that one of Lee’s tweets, because all I’ve seen were references to AI.com

    ETA: I think I’m going to have to break down and join Twitter. Would someone please re-post our group list names? (Or whatever they’re called. I know NOTHING about Twitter.)

  229. The last update I saw was that the announcement was going to posted on American Idol.com. So I’m checking that today as well.

    wjmtv, neither did the rest of us, we all joined twitter for Lee. Our group twitter list is@liveLeelists.

  230. wjmtv, just let us know your twitter name after you sign up. Then we can all follow you and help you out, if needed! :)

  231. Yeah, it may be easiest for us to find you and then you can follow us right back. you’ll get the hang of twitter in no time :)

    News is coming very soon….eeee!

    Lee DeWyze fans…”SOON” means keep your eyes/ears on @RyanSeacrest @RCAPromo and AmericanIdol.com TOMORROW!
    about 15 hours ago via web

    This was on Twitter @RCAPromo……we “assumed” it would be on Ryan’s Radio show today. Oh well :(

  233. Ok, I’m wjmtv4me cuz some b*st*rd stole my real name. Now what?

    ETA: Oh, ok. Thanks heat.

  234. wjmtv, Yay! you’ll like it, it’s fun!

    ETA I’m following you and I sent you a tweet!

  235. wjmtv, you need to follow us back now, so you can see our tweets.

  236. I already posted in the new Lee album thread but I just had to come here and squee in peace haha.

    Remember awhile ago we were talking about how he was always in such a good mood and telling us he loved us fifty times a day? I’m really excited to see how his songs reflect that :) ‘Live it Up’ sounds pretty upbeat to me!

    ETA: I was hoping for some tattoo action! How many more of our dreams will come true??

  237. wjmtv I just followed you

    We asked for an upbeat single and it seems that’s what we got! And a non self titled album!!! I’ll bet he at least co-wrote that song, or he wouldn’t have wanted to use it for the album title!!
    I love the cover! We saw where it was shot in that video, but it looks like he is in some backwoods cabin on a fishing trip-that’s so him. And that expression on his face……I’m lisping!

  238. I already put Lee’s album cover picture as the background on my computer. He really looks amazing.! I like the additional photos as well. The 2nd one is my favorite, you can really see his baby blues!

  239. Ok it’s official, I can’t look at the album cover without smiling my ass off.

  240. Hey all, we are closing out this thread and moving to Lee Announces his first single and album title “Live it Up”.

    His hair looks much better on this thread!

  241. wjmtv, just followed you also.

    Ok it’s official, I can’t look at the album cover without smiling my ass off.

    Same here! :grin:
