The American Idol 2010 results for May 19th were the next-to-last of the year. After these 2010 American Idol results on May 19th, only two singers would remain. These are the final official days of the 2009-10 TV season, and it has become a grand tradition to end it with a gigantic Idol finale. The show truly needs a big ending, given all the complaints about this season, and since it will be Simon Cowell’s final week. The singers themselves have often taken a back seat, or been among the things fans complained about. But after the American Idol results for May 19th, two of them will still have a shot at victory.
Coming into this week, Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze, and Casey James were left in the top three. Bowersox has been the favorite almost from the start, both due to her performances and due to somewhat weak competition. However, favorites tend to slip up and lose ground at about this time, and the American Idol 2010 results of May 1th may have started to shift the momentum.
Lee DeWyze had been marching along fairly quietly through the top three. While others like Bowersox and Michael Lynche stole the spotlight, and James defied the odds to get here, DeWyze had slowly snuck up on everyone. Before the American Idol 2010 results on May 19th, DeWyze finally made his big move by being the latest to nail ‘Hallelujah’.
Leonard Cohen’s famous song has been performed in many different ways over the years. DeWyze used it to steal the momentum on Tuesday night after Simon Cowell picked it for him to sing. With that decision, Cowell may have helped change the game in his final Idol moments.
Given Bowersox’s leadership, DeWyze’s definitive performance, and how James got some breaks to get this far, the American Idol 2010 results for May 19th became obvious. It was finally James’ time to go, setting up a Bowersox vs. DeWyze finale for next week.
An American Idol finale is among the biggest, most extravagant, and most dragged out events on television. This year, the hype will mainly surround Simon’s farewell, while Crystal and Lee try to help bring a troubled season to a thrilling end. It helps that all of a sudden, Bowersox is no longer a sure thing for the win as DeWyze enters the finale with a new edge.
The American Idol 2010 results on May 19th helped set up a suspenseful final showdown, which didn’t look likely a while back. Whether that will be enough to salvage this year is uncertain, and perhaps unlikely. However, Crystal and Lee will still give it a shot on May 25 and 26.
