lee deywze crystal bowersox finale 'American Idol': Lee DeWyze or Crystal Bowersox    who won Season 9?In a bit of a surprise, the “American Idol” Season 9 winner is Lee DeWyze.

It will probably be considered a bit of an upset. Runner-up Crystal Bowersox was the front-runner from very early on in the season, but DeWyze has come on very strong these past few weeks.

It also seemed like Bowersox “won” the final set of performances on Tuesday, May 25, but Lee’s fans clearly came through to crown him the winner.

After a night full of great performances — DeWyze sang with Chicago, Bowersox sang with Alanis Morissette, Casey James got to rock out with Bret Michaels, Paula Abdul gave an outstanding Simon Cowell tribute with a bunch of former Idols, and a Season 9 finalist performance with Janet Jackson — DeWyze was crowned the winner.

What do you think? Was it the right choice? Do you think it will even matter that Bowersox came in second or will she have success anyway?
