On tonight's "American Idol" season finale Lee DeWyze beat Crystal Bowersox to be crowned the ninth season champion. Yesterday, the final two performed three songs each - their favorite song, a song chosen by producer Simon Fuller and their possible winning song. The judges loved both contestants, but seemed to give the edge to Crystal. Tonight, all twelve finalists reunited and performed with artists such as Alice Cooper, The Bee Gees, Michael McDonald, Christina Aguilera, Hall & Oates, Bret Michaels, Alanis Morissette, Chicago, Joe Cocker and Janet Jackson. Paula Abdul also returned along with most of the previous "Idol" winners to give a proper send-off to departing judge Simon Cowell. The finale culminated with Ryan revealing that Lee received the most votes & was the ninth season winner.
