'American Idol': Lee DeWyze's first-week sales lower than all winners or runner-ups


The numbers are out for "American Idol" Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze's debut album "Live It Up" and they are not good. The album debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 39,000 units, according to Nielsen Soundscan.

And actually, Lee isn't only the lowest-selling winner, but he's lower than any runner-up, beating Diana DeGarmo by 8,000 less albums sold. Now granted, that was in 2004 and this is 2010 -- people don't buy entire albums like they used to. But even just last year, Kris Allen sold 80,000 albums in one week and Glambert sold almost 200,000.
