Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox team up to sing "Falling Slowly" on "American Idol."

They don't quite have the chemistry down pat, never get the sense they're playing off each other. More like two technically excellent singers on the same stage, a couple of feet apart.

Great vocals, even fun to watch at times, but no goosebumps. And they're almost shouting at times.

Randy loved it, "that could be a hit right now; I loved it, that was amazing." Ellen says, "you're like the new Captain and Tennille." Kara says one of her favorite moments of the whole season. She loved their chemistry. Simon says "I'd call it a fantastic song."

Eh, I think the judges got caught up in what they wanted to see, instead of what actually happened. Crystal says afterward, "Lee's my musical crush."
