Wedding bells are ringing for American Idol winner Lee DeWyze.
The singer gave his model/actress girlfriend Jonna Walsh the Disney dream she's aways hoped for.
Describing the big moment, Lee popped the question on a private yacht under a fireworks-filled sky at Disney World. He says:
No William Hung this year??? LOLz.
Check out the list (below) to see how much your favorite Idols earned, before taxes, between May 2010 and May 2011:
You guys remember Lee DeWyze, right? Tall, handsome, won American Idol last year. In truth, he hasn't been much of a story since this time last year when he won, but today, he's making headlines again for allegedly snubbing the franchise that made him a
Apparently, producers had wanted DeWyze to hand off the official American Idol trophy to Scotty when he won. You know, like a passing of the baton type situation. However, Lee reportedly refused to go on, claiming that he wasn't asked to participate until “about two minutes” beforehand.
Producer Nigel Lythgoe remembers the situation a little bit differently and took to his Twitter to comment. He posted to his:
“True, he wasn’t asked to sing, but Lee knows he was asked to present the trophy [to the new Idol] a week before.”
Seems to be a difference of opinion. Personally, the fact that they ask Lee to be involved was a pretty sweet gig, even if it was only two minutes before. Like, it would've been so hard to walk ten feet? C'mon!

Another American Idol runner-up outsells the first place winner!
Despite coming in second place during AI's ninth season, Crystal Bowersox's debut album Farmer's Daughter posted higher sales during its first week than first place winner Lee Dewyze's debut, which hit stores in November.
Farmer's Daughter outsold almost 19,000 more units than DeWyze's Live It Up in its first week, selling 58,000 copies.
While the album did better than her fellow contestant's debut, sales were still weak compared to previous season's winners and runner-up contestants. Her album only ranked higher than first-season runner-up Justin Guaurini, which sold 57,000 copies and third-season runner-up, Diana Degarmo, which sold 47,000 copies.
Compared to runner-ups like Adam Lambert, who wold 198,000 copies of his album For Your Entertainment and second-season runner-up, Clay Aiken, who sold 613,000 copies of his album, Measure Of A Man, in its first week, Bowersox barely made a dent on the Billboard charts.
It doesn't seem like AI is really producing music idols anymore. Can the 10th season bring in another successful singer? What do U think?

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!!!
