Lee DeWyze or Crystal Bowersox? 'American Idol' experts pick...

Will Lee DeWyze ride the teenybopper votes to "American Idol" victory tonight, or is it going to be Crystal Bowersox pulling the upset with her great final performance last night?

Heck, our Newsday panel doesn't know -- 5 of us picked Lee, the other 5 went with Crystal. We'll all have to tune in to find out, and I, for one, am happy with either. They were clearly the best two all season, and deserve to be in this position.

In our Newsday contest for no prize,

Jonathan McCarthy

stays in first and wins if Crystal wins, while

Peggy Lundquist

wins if Lee wins.

Here are all our picks, below. (Scoring system for tonight: You get three points for correctly picking who's going home)
