View Full Version : American Idol Winner Covers The Beautiful People
05-31-2010, 11:30 AM
Back before he won "American Idol" -- Lee DeWyze flirted with the dark side ... in fact, dude covered a song by Marilyn Manson.
DeWyze's old record label has just released Lee's rendition of Manson's hit "Beautiful People" -- roughly one year after Lee recorded it back in Chicago.
While the cover ain't half bad -- we're told the song never made the cut on any of Lee's old albums.
But hey, times change

Many thanks Jakob, shame on me for expecting the worst and then on listening found it's one of the best renditions of BP I've heard - he's made it his own which is something all the best covers do by taking the anger out of it and putting that bit more reflective-ness in it's place.
American Idol has done itself well recently in my eyes. Alice Cooper's appearance on it last week was awesome.

It's okay, not really aggressive like the song should be but neat nonetheless.

Interesting. He sorta sounds like the singer for Mudvayne in this cover.

I thought that was a great cover, thanks for posting.

Hahaha I'd really like to hear what Manson has to say about this, actually is not bad even it sounds like a romantic ballad

He almost sounds like Dave Matthew's or something, but it's not a bad cover at all. Just a very odd song to perform in this style, but hell if I heard this in a bar or something I would totally rock it.

I hate myself on the principle that I don't hate this more.

Haha, the cover doesn't sound half bad at all.
I think I gained a little respect for American Idol now...

Actually, this isn't bad. I think the other contestant, Crystal, should have won American Idol this season, but that's just my opinion; Lee did have a very good voice as well.

...This gives me mixed emotions...

I can't decide whether I like it or not. It's nice he made a ballad out of it but it doesn't sweep me off my feet.
