Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox finally face off on 'American Idol'

Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox are about to sing for the crown on "American Idol," with 7,000 screaming fans. I dunno, somehow it all doesn't seem as big as in years past.

Both are 24, Ryan tells us -- and then Simon Cowell gets a hand for his final week on the show. Now him we'll miss....

From the get-go Crystal is aggressive, takes the lead on talking to the audience, just really seems to be into it; Lee is his usual laid-back self. Could be an upset tonight.
