As predicted, this season's "American Idol" will be a showdown between Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze. Sent home in the Top 3 week is Casey James whose two performances last night could not balance Crystal's and Lee's.

Lee was in fact the first to be called out as a finalist, followed by Crystal. The equally strong contestants will battle it out on Tuesday, May 25 with three performances. The first round is the contestant's choice, the second is producer Simon Fuller's choice and the third one is the winner's single.

Lee DeWyze is a 24-year-old contestant hailing from Mount Prospect, Illinois who is credited for his bluesy and raspy voice. Crystal Bowersox, also 24-year-old, came from Elliston, Ohio. Judges praised her for putting soul to her every performance.

I loved Lee, all season, since the auditions, but then I got attached to Crystal. I think they are both fabulous, but Lee has been strong more weeks in a row than Crystal is. Face it last week Crystal didn't pick a great song, but Lee did then when the judges chose both of them were good so Lee has had one better performance Overall I think Lee DeWyze will overcome Crystal and her talents and rise to the top and just beat her, but then again it will be a close call.

I like Lee, but...He hasn't sung a complete song on key in at least 8 weeks. If the judges had given honest criticism of his performances, he would have been gone long ago. As to Lee's "natural talent" he reminds me mostly of a cheap knock off of David Cook. If you had to choose an album by Cook, Daughtry or Lee, which would you buy? Honestly

Chrystal has a pretty voice, but that's it for me. She howls and screeches on her high notes. Lee, I love his sexy raspy voice and his personality. They both are geat and I hope that Lee will quiet all those naysayers with a great finale. GO LEE!!!
