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!!!

Last night, Simon Cowell judged American Idol for the very last time.
To celebrate him, many of the Idols, past and present, sang a big tribute song to the man who made them fear their own talent. But there was some noticeable faces missing from the line-up, including season seven winner David Cook and last year's runner-up, Adam Lambert!
So where were they?
Apparently, according to Adam's tweets, he was never invited to perform on Idol. He was only asked to sit in the audience. He also found himself battling a nasty case of laryngitis, so he opted to stay home and rest. Glambert tweeted:
"Would have loved 2 have been at the Idol Finale to wish Simon farewell and support the finalists, but this tour for my fans is my priority…was put on vocal rest yesterday from MY show's rehearsals which doubled the work 2 do 2day since all equip. had 2 be sent back east tonight."
As for David, he was far, far away at a charity gig in Kansas City, but also tweeted his regrets for not being a part of the celebration:
"Congrats to Lee DeWyze! So sorry I could be there to see all my fellow idols. I'm there in spirit!"
Not the same, but we forgive you both. Simon might not though. Just saying.
