Not one to give up on his big dream to be a music star, DeWyze auditioned for the reality music competitionAmerican Idolin 2009. He made it onto the show's ninth season, but wasn't seen as a front-runner for much of the competition. Yet as the season progressed, DeWyze came from behind as a fan favorite with covers of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and U2's "Beautiful Day." In the final episode, DeWyze beat out the judges' clear choice, Crystal Bowersox, thanks to the audience's majority vote. With his victory, DeWyze not only earned the coveted title of the season's official "American Idol", but he also scored a valuable record contract. His first album on his new label was released in October 2010.  This is a musical performance that you wouldn’t want to miss.
