Tina Okrasinski-Smith   May 31st, 2010 7:24 pm ET

Congrats Larry..25 is great 75 would be better!
Looking for a replacement for about my husband Dave..hes a natural..please consider him/. Keep in touch! Tina

1. I think Rev Run (Joseph Simmons) should replace Simon on Idol. He is very "watchable" and has a ton of experience in the music business. He is also pretty funny.
2. Question for idols – if you could have one super power, what would it be and why??
3. Question for my favorite idol (Lee DeWyze) – I was so excited to see Edward Norton as one of your favorite actors. What is your favorite Ed Norton movie??

Good luck on the tour everyone and can't wait to see you when you come to Georgia. Already have my tickets 🙂

Please ask Casey about his recovery from his motorcycle accident - how long it took him to play the guitar again, how it changed his playing, what his first performance after the accident was like. Did he think back to that when he and Bret Michaels played their duet on the finale?

Bill   May 31st, 2010 7:56 pm ET

Big Mike came in 9th, not 4th.
Why should 4 judges over rule millions of voters?
Because of the unfair save, others got bumped down a spot for their resume.
Also, let them sing what they want. I judge them partly on their taste in music.

Joann   May 31st, 2010 8:01 pm ET

Lee, are you single?

Laney   May 31st, 2010 8:07 pm ET

Lee, have you ever had a girl friend -friend made me ask 😉

Laney   May 31st, 2010 8:12 pm ET

Laney   May 31st, 2010 8:13 pm ET

Sherri   May 31st, 2010 8:13 pm ET

This question is for Casey James:

What was inside the box that you were trying to hide while you were in the top 24?

Laney   May 31st, 2010 8:16 pm ET

Lee, you seem like a great singer. when did you decide to farther your talent? and how has this helped you so far with your new career?

Laney   May 31st, 2010 8:16 pm ET

Michelle Friend   May 31st, 2010 8:34 pm ET

My name is Michelle, I am 9 years old and a big fan of Lee's!
I live in Mt. Prospect, one block from the paint store where he worked!
I think it would be great if Lee sang Hey Soul Sister by Train, Lee will you sing it? Thanks and Love, Michelle

Joann   May 31st, 2010 8:49 pm ET

Lee, are you single?
When will your album come out?
Are you tired of being referred to as a paint salesmen?

Joann   May 31st, 2010 8:49 pm ET

My questions are for Lee.

Who is your role model?
Would you and Crystal Bowersox ever date?
Do you think that you and Crystal Bowersox will ever put out a single?
Are you single??

Rebecca   May 31st, 2010 9:00 pm ET

Is Siobhan gonna be teaming up with Adam Lambert anytime?

Sarah Eyerly   May 31st, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Lee, what do you think your post Idol album will sound like compared to your pre Idol albums? P.S. You are an inspiration to all of us back home in Chicago, and we're so proud!

Pam Norris   May 31st, 2010 9:15 pm ET

Lee, when you cut your first Post Idol album, who will you dedicate it to and why?

TERESA   May 31st, 2010 9:16 pm ET


sparkyart   May 31st, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Larry... Love your program tonight.

Please ask Lee if he is going to put 'Hallelujah" on his new album
We loved that son, and hope he does.

Todd M in VA   May 31st, 2010 9:22 pm ET

couple of Q's:
1. Lee.. your biggest "concern".. have you finally "been cured"? Do you finally realize that you're GOOD and you DESERVE what's happening to you? -grins-

2. Our family noticed from the past season, and worry for this season... there are some great mixes, as far as duets and team-ups.. are you guys keeping this in mind, and do any of you have any intentions to do so?

Shel   May 31st, 2010 9:25 pm ET

First off – Congratz Lee! You were my choice from the beginning!

QUESTION: Who was everybody's favourite mentor? From an audience stand point I loved Adam Lambert, what about you?

sparkyart   May 31st, 2010 9:26 pm ET

We loved his song "Hallelujah" and it meant so much to sooo many people.. Please ask Lee this question... Thanks sooo much...
I could listen to it continually.......

Tina   May 31st, 2010 9:41 pm ET

I think Harry Connick Jr should replace Simon Cowell

Tina   May 31st, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Question for LEE: Do you have a girlfriend and are you dating Crystal Bowersox ?

MK   May 31st, 2010 9:43 pm ET

This question is for Casey James:

On the duet with Big Mike, you mention that you have other song in mind. Which song was that?

Could you also talk about your rings? I heard something about that it was from your grandmother.

Tina   May 31st, 2010 9:44 pm ET

HARRY CONNICK Jr should replace Simon Cowell. He has that same sort of edge to him

Tina   May 31st, 2010 9:45 pm ET

CASEY: What was inside the box that you were trying to hide while you were in the top 24?

jack gremillion   May 31st, 2010 9:46 pm ET

When does krystal Bowersox plan on releasing her album and whom is her record company?

Tina   May 31st, 2010 9:51 pm ET

LEE – Do you have a girlfriend ? Are you and Crystal a possibility ?

Remi   May 31st, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Crystal is the only original artist there. She is an amazing singer and should have won. Can't wait for her album to come out!

Aanchal   May 31st, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Lee, what's your favorite song that you ever did on the show?

Erin   May 31st, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Aint No Sun Shine When She Gone

Geof   May 31st, 2010 11:22 pm ET


How about America picking Simon's replacement, with the idols as judges? You can host. They can give points for level of sarcasm, originality of insults, constructive/and or helpful advice. You could have real cruise ship singers and have the judgees pick out the difference.

Zalinda   June 1st, 2010 12:07 am ET

Love Lee and Crystal. Lee is a dreamboat muscian and Crystal is vibrant and Joplinisque.

Simon's replacement?

Harry Connick Jr, Joy Behar, Craig Ferguson. Maybe some rotation until the fit is determined.

Love your show and congrats on 25 magical years!

Dennis Hagans   June 1st, 2010 4:03 am ET

Not saying that Lee was the worst but he didn't carry it in yhe last night. The vote went wrong. More girls voted for Lee than guys voting for Chrystel. Everyone here thjnks that Chrystal shouild have gotten the vote. No ofeense Lee....we love you too but we love chrystll more because she did a brtter job. For sure.

Dennis Hagans.....aka: Z
L8er Daze....we love you all everyone of you and hope to see you all soon!!!

Jan   June 1st, 2010 4:50 pm ET

When will your first alblum be completed? You have so much talent–pleae post on your web site often and let us know your first solo tour.

I would love to see you work with Elton John or Adam--is that a possibility. You were fantastic in the finale. Girl you brought it.

Loved your finale performance.

Casey you were great in the finale. Let us know where in Texas you might be performing. I live in Texas and would like to hear you.

Preston Petty   August 9th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

I think Simon Cowell should be replaced by Adam Lambert–add some color and excitement to the panel.....
