Lee DeWyze and Chicago do a medley next on "American Idol."' It's not nearly as electric as Crystal Bowersox and Alanis Morissette, or Adam Lambert and Queen last season.

Lee seems like an apprentice and Chicago just sounds old. It's pleasant to listen to, but I keep feeling like pressing a floor number, any number, to get off.

Ha, more Simon roasts. Paula gets off a great line: "Is Simon a flirt? Yes, if you're a mirror." It's all about him and the ladies.

They play it off like a joke, but he and Paula had real chemistry, and made watching the show fun (until toward the end when they took up too much screen time.)
