The title of 'American Idol' Season 9 winner has officially been given to Lee DeWyze, who defeated the much more popular Crystal Bowersox last night on the show's season finale. Many felt that this season of AI would be a "girl's season" but that is deemed to be untrue as yet another male is crowned America's favorite amateur singer.

This season marks the final bow for 'American Idol' creator Simon Cowell, as he is set to leave the show to focus on other projects. Regardless, America has spoken, and the 'American Idol' Season 9 winner is another boy, with Lee DeWyze taking home the big prize.
