Don't miss the performance episode, only to tune in for the endless results show on Wednesday! The contestants will sing a song they felt they sang best during the season, then a producers' pick, and then a song to record. I'm not sure if it will be a cover they're going to record, or a new song (a la "A Moment Like This"), but The Entertainment Lifestyle is saying each contestant has an original song written for them. I don't know how I feel about that yet.

She positively lights up whenever he’s on stage, and her comments that he should look into her eyes and “sing to her more” aren’t really very subtle, are they?

Lee DeWyze Gives a Performance Worthy of the Reigning Champ on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

The season nine winner of 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM on FOX) has struggled in the sales charts thus far with his debut post-'Idol' album 'Live It Up.'
