Idol Winner Is Loser On The Charts!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican Idol

Welcome to the decline of American Idol!

Lee Dewyze was crowned the new American Idol last week. Like all the Idols before him, his debut single was rushed released into the world, but unlike the other Idols, his single is TANKING!

In its first week of sales, Lee has only sold 95,000 of his debut single, Beautiful Day. It has come in at #10 on the sales charts, but its lack of airplay means it will come in much lower on the Billboard Hot 100.

But lets put this into perspective:

Last year, winner Kris Allen was able to peddle 134,000 downloads of the original tune No Boundaries in its first week. The year before David Cook moved 236,000 of The Time of My Life and came in to the charts at #1.

Need we say more?

They better pray whoever replaces Simon Cowell gives this show a boost! Otherwise, this looks like the end of an era to us!

Here's a thought - PICK PEREZ!!!

    Or it could be because it isn't an original song, it's a cover of one. They should have done original music.



  2. 2

    HE CAN JOIN TRAVIS GAYLAND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CHARTS…I THINK THAT BLANK CDS COME OUT ON TOP IN SALES!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA



  3. 3

    They picked the wrong winner that's why. This show ALWAYS picks the wrong fucking person, and I'm glad people have caught on. This guy is boring, he seems nice, but that's not enough for me to buy his shitty song. I'm so done with this show, Siobhan SHOULD have won, but stupid pre teen girls who shouldn't be texting and voting in the first place ruined that.



  4. 4

    Of course he is - he is not interesting AT ALL - as a performer……



  5. 5

    the only thing anyone will pick perez for is a punch in the face



  6. 6

    The guy is cute and he got a good voice too, but he as David Cook, They look boring to me…I can't see those guys could be managed 2 hours concert or so. They need to spicy up their looks, A good fresh haircut and better clothing and also not too be that cocky either and that way they might reach more fans!



  7. 7

    Oh and BTW, no one wants your mutilated ass on television perez. If they wanted you they would have called you a LONG time ago. There is a difference between trying to get something you want and being delusional. You are delusional. And your hairy as fuck



  8. 8

    Please Perez, you bash EVERYONE on your site and you post that Lee DeWyze is a loser on the charts and you seriously think the people that control Idol will pick you? give us all a break and get over yourself.



  9. 9

    Here's a thought….. fuck no!



  10. 10

    And Travis Whatshisname isn't even charting, so you have no room to talk you imbecile.



  11. 11

    its a shame that you have no musical experience or background whatsoever. you have a few no name stars, signed to your no name record label. you would make idol so much trashier



  12. 12

    I don't think anyone wants to see Perez's lame ass on tv. I wish he'd stop campaigning for something that's never going to happen, it's almost embarrassing.

  13. @v@ says – reply to this


    13

    Gee, maybe it's the RECYCLED ad nauseum song already initially well done and then repeated well by that Norweigen winner? 95,000 is more than these recycle profit kings should expect, foisting off unoriginal songs by other artists on America since it worked so well in the European contest.

  14. Phaze says – reply to this


    14

    This guy sucks, anyway. Adam Lambert and Kelly Clarkson are the only good people to come from American Idol.

    Also, Siobhan Magnus should have won this year. She was the only truly original one that really stood out. I thought that's what American Idol was looking for, but I guess they just want generic, un-original people like Kris Allen, this guy, and David Cook. Shame.



  15. 15

    p.s no on american idol….you cant pick a singer that is good if your moms life depended on it….it would be like taking her SHOPPING CART FORM YOUR LIVING ROOM…A TOTAL SAD DAY!



  16. 16

    Seriously Perez, you make fun of anything with the word FOX in it. I'm surprised you would want to work for that network. You even bash local fox affiliates…



  17. 17

    why even make a comment like here is the downfall of American Idol yet your pimping yourself out to be a judge? Give me a fuckin break even making it on the charts is a good thing #10 is not an epic fail actually debuted better than travis right? so suck it



  18. 18

    Lee is a great singer.. Its not his fault that they song they picked for him sucks!!



  19. 19

    Seeing Perez makes me want to vomit on his face. Hearing his voice makes me want to vomit on his face again.
    I would rather listen to and watch a box of kittens thrown into a fire then see and hear this donkey face rump ranger.



  20. 20

    Here's a thought - stop being so desperate!!!



  21. 21

    Please make the ugly bad man stop talking about judging idol..please.



  22. 22

    and your boy travis did 20,000 in first week downloads????? um, why should you be the next american idol judge again????? come on!



  23. 23

    Re-recording U2's "Beautiful Day", was a moot point. C'mon! Idol suits shouldn't make winners re-do older tracks. Winning "American Idol" is suppose to mean that individual is the "new" winner. So, give the public something new! A novel concept?



  24. 24

    Didn't your Travis only sell 25K or something like that? Think before dissing others.



  25. 25

    This stupid ass show should have ended after the first year. Kelly Clarkson was the only winner that was any good at all the rest of them suck ass.



  26. 26

    they need to end this show I haven't watched it in years!



  27. 27

    Perez…no one wants to see your self promoting, no talent ass on Idol. They would actually lose viewers. Just stick to the site. You need to build a bridge and get over yourself. Only you would be so stupid and out of touch to bash a show, then think you could make it better. And for the record, I think Lee has a beautiful voice. Clearly, you know jack squat about talent.



  28. 28

    Yes, Lee DeWyze isn't charting because he shouldn't have won, but not because he is boring (though he is). The "originality" everyone sees in Siobhan Magnus and Adam Lambert is NOT the same as talent and musicality, which David Cook and Crystal Bowersox both have. It grosses me out that whatever sticks out in any way from the garbage that people force through their ears is taken for "talent"–there is far more to be said for doing something and doing it WELL than for going out on a limb you don't feel simply to get people to like you.



  29. 29

    Idol was a lot more fun when the contestant were not locked up 24/7 and monitored by armed guards; they need to bring back the scandals.



  30. 30

    Re: DSummerfan – Lee is NOT EVEN CLOSE to being as good as David Cook. I've seen David in concert and believe me, his show is awesome. Not only does he sound great when he sings live, but his banter is always witty and funny.
    As if it isn't enough that he's a talented singer and musician, he's also charming and honestly, extremely hot.
    Kris Allen is also talented, but not as hot as David :)



  31. 31

    Re: Phaze – Kris Allen and David Cook are not generic. Lee, however, sucks



  32. 32

    the reason why each idol sells less than the one before is because each idol is more dull than the one before. this guy is so scary boring its not even funny. his single was over commercialized crap. but thats american idol for u . the winner is always the most "commercial" but i think the buying public is finaLLY sick and tired of commercial and is longing for something with artistic substance.



  33. 33

    As soon as Lambert showed up, the show's been tanking.



  34. 34

    And Perez, you are FAR too ugly to be on television.



  35. 35

    I used to be all for you judging for Idol, but now that you've dissed Lee Dewyze, I'm thinking I don't want to have to stare at your saggy double chin twice a week. Plus you'd probably get your horrible singer Travis whatever to sing everyweek…newsflash, his sales probably weren't even CLOSE to Lee's. You made an embarassment out of yourself by thinking you could make something out of him.



  36. 36

    He's moderately talented and didn't even deserve to be in the finale. The last two standing should have been crystal and Siobahn.
    If Perez became a judge I would never watch again… millions wouldn't.
    I think Adam Lambert ruined the show for future contestants… no one will be as amazing as he was.



  37. 37

    95,000 of a remake is a tank!! PLEASE douche. The new CD from the "National Anthems" came in at #3 and sold 51,000



  38. 38

    I hate to say I told you so to Lee's mouthy dumbass fans on this blog but I told you so….BUT I TOLD YOU SO!!! You can call me a Crystal fan, a hater, or whatever you want to make Lee look good….BUT SALES DON'T LIE!!!! Those who laugh last laugh best. Enjoy your failure that you voted for. Nobody will remember him by next year, unless he become's Adam's manbitch. This show is done.



  39. 39

    I think it was stupid that they gave both him and Crystal a song that wasn't written for them…and even worse because people are misinformed and think Lee actually picked it himself. At least Crystal's is less recognizable and older. Lee has been performing an acoustic version of this song that is WAY better and more his style…I feel like he's doing it the way he would've performed it himself if he had actually picked it. The reason the sales are low is because the show had way lower ratings. I think Lee will be successful but it will just take a little bit more since the show has become less popular.

    Also, anybody that doubts his talent should download or listen to some of his previously recorded music that he did with an independent label. He wrote and played it all and it's very impressive for someone with no experience. Hopefully his contract will allow him to write his own stuff for the album because the stuff the producers picked for him SUCKED (Beautiful Day and Everybody Hurts…awful) Anytime he picked for himself it was good.



  40. 40

    Yeah but he has sold more then your "boyfriend/blow buddy" Travis Gayland
    So SUCK THAT!!!!!!

  41. emick says – reply to this


    41

    Why didn't he record an original single??



  42. 42

    I don't know why they didn't give him an original song. That was Idol's fault, not Lee's. Idol needs a complete revamp, it needs to EVOLVE. People are getting sick of the same shtick and the same songs year after year. Idol needs to change it up somehow and clear some more songs. If I hear the song Hallelujah one more time I'll stick pencils in my ears. AND I would love to see them do an indie week, a 90's week, and a write your own song week.



  43. 43

    Re: emick – idol always writes them an original song for their first single..so it wasn't lee's choosing (read my comment a couple above yours).

    If you want to hear some of Lee's original music search on itunes (or google) his album "Slumberland" and "So I'm Told"…he wrote all the lyrics and music, truly shows his talent and after his idol experience i'm sure it will only improve



  44. 44

    here's a BETTER idea - kill this feckin' show and put music out of its misery!



  45. 45

    Hmm that is interesting that it's #10 on the charts. Then again "Beautiful Day" ain't all that…
    I did want Crystal to win. :)



  46. 46

    Re: Mayapapaya1 – GRACIAS!!! I know right???
    OH MY GOSH!
    "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen is soooooooo incredibly OVERRATED it's not funny lol. O__o Blegh lol.
    That song is sooo almost-played-OUT. :P

    Oh and I agree also, they should have different music weeks other than the usual ones.
    If they do "Indie week" one of the songs should be "In The House of Stone and Light" by Martin Page. :D

  47. Lo30 says – reply to this


    47

    because people have already heard and downloaded that song when it came out years ago!



  48. 48

    Re: bpridie – I agree! I mean it's an alright song, but it's already SO overplayed that having someone new singing it isn't going to make it any less annoying



  49. 49

    Perhaps it's because it's a cover of a song done originally by a band considered to be one of the best of all time. I'm sure Lee is more than happy to sell 95,000 copies of ANYTHING being this time a year ago he was working in a paint store. Making a living off of music is what Idol is all about, not necessarily selling millions of albums. I wasn't the biggest Lee fan at first, but his pre-Idol album is great and I think when he gets to release a REAL single, it'll be much better.



  50. 50

    Perez would be the coup de grace for Idol. I suggest Cher.



  51. 51

    I don't watch American Idol, and if Perez actually got chosen, I would call Comcast and demand to have Fox deleted from my cable lineup. He's so fug.



  52. 52

    I dunno why they didn't make him do an original song. They should have. Beautiful Day isn't much of a song, and to have the new idol sing it is kinda unfair. Uncool.



  53. 53

    No one can do Hallelujah like Jason Castro. Just him and a guitar, not overblown with a choir



  54. 54

    That show is over. Without Simon Cowell there is no entertainment. And no one with the balls to tell the truth.

    This last 'winner' is also a mediocre singer at best. Nothing special. no tingles up the spine, just thoughts of karaoke.

    The fact that these last two seasons ended with the wrong winner should tell you something. the producers don't know what they are doing and are misdirected and informed in promoting the wrong person.

    Glambert and Bowersox will be the successful ones.



  55. 55

    Good riddens! Cancel American Idol!!! It's over!!!

    X-Factor with Simon Cowell is the new thing!!!



  56. 56

    Didn't this guy win before? He's about as generic as they get. Worst AI winner ever or loser in this case!



  57. 57

    why do you think the show would be better with you? There's no chance ratings would increase if you were judge, you'd most likely drive people away. BAD IDEA



  58. 58

    i really hope they do get you to take over for simon…….so when the show is an EPIC fail then we will all know who to blame….your taste is music is shiteous as you would say and as far as your ideas as to how make Idol better… those are all stupid as well



  59. 59

    Hopefully this is the beginning of the end for all reality programming.

  60. balls says – reply to this


    60

    balls



  61. 61

    It's because it's a cover of a shiteous U2 song, all those other songs you mentioned were original songs.



  62. 62

    This is why I'm happy Crystal didn't win. If she had it would be her with a shitty song on the charts. Crystal will make an awesome album and poor Lee likely won't even have a record contract a year from now.



  63. 63

    I think Lee Dewyze was the best choice……………after all, he was voted in by America………………….somebody must like him. He'll be o.k. in my books.



  64. 64

    Yeah, nothing will help boost the ratings like a stupid fugly asshole like Perez … I watched the bad auditions this year, if you get on I will never ever watch the show again.



  65. 65

    Dude can sell a Million singles of that song and he still won't make any money off it!!! The writer is the one who makes the real money!



  66. 66

    This show is losing its popularity!



  67. 67

    Not an original song like the others and it was barely promoted unlike the others. Check out his duet with Crystal though. It would really be ironic and entirely hypocritical of you to get a paycheck from FOX! And of course you'd do it!



  68. 68

    Maybe if the show had invested enough to have an original song written for these kids. Of course no one wants to hear Beautiful Day by Lee Dwyze on the radio, no one even wants to hear it by U2. Maybe if they give this guy some legit new music we'll be interested in listening.



  69. 69

    Perez, you'd be the worst pick for american idol ever. You're so over the top and unattractive. Mainstream america would NEVER watch if you are on. Also, you think Travis Garland is good. So honestly how do you think you have ANY musical taste?



  70. 70

    Why would you want to be a part of something that suck? Idol sucks! Get it?



  71. 71

    Perez, love you sweets. But you of all people should know that No Boundaries was our beloved Adam Lambert.



  72. 72

    Perez, sweets, love you but you of all peeps should know that No Boundaries is our beloved Adam Lambert.



  73. 73

    Please stop. No one is going to pick you. It was funny once, but let it go. You have your fame. Can't you just be satisfied with that?

    Besides, with Ellen and Ryan, the lez and gay slots are full..



  74. 74

    Re: jones19 – Now it's U2's fault? LOL, pathetic. Go check the "shiteous" sales for that album.



  75. 75

    Um, didn't Idol already beat this song to death when it was used as the winning song for "World Idol" a few years back…by someone who sang it better?



  76. 76

    This is funny. A few weeks ago you were like "Travis Garland sells 20,000 or something copies of his single" and OH MY JESUS he is such a BIG SUCCESS — I mean bigger than JUSTIN.TIMBERLAKE….gonna take the world by storm…haven't seen this before and on and on. Anyway, ff to now and this guy (who I think is not talented either) sells $95,000 and he is a loser. No good. I suppose by the standards that are set he would be considered one, but by your own standards you should be praising him as bigger than JUSTIN.TIMBERLAKE and even bigger than ELVIS.PRESLEY for that matter. Oh, wait maybe bigger than MICHAEL.JACKSON — I think you get my point.



  77. 77

    Lee Dewyze is the worst winner in Idol history!!!

    The best winners are Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and David Cook.
    The best non-winners are Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lamnert.



  78. 78

    u could be right
    but who watches that shizz anyway



  79. 79

    The decline of American Idol was when Taylor Hicks won. Then it picked back up, the same may happen this time. Though with Simon gone its not going to be worth watching. I don't think the last two standing, the girl and this dude should have won. Bad batch I say!



  80. 80

    The man looks like a waiter in a bad italian movie. Noone cares about Idol even when it is a hit. Only those fortunate enough to make it to Broadway count. Who knows, maybe Ellen will buy all of them up. Delusional as she is.
