It has come to my attention that if Lee DeWyze wins this season’s American Idol, his first single will be his rendition of U2′s “Beautiful Day.” That is unacceptable, because his version is just like the leather hoodie he’s wearing during this performance (AWFUL):
Sure, I recognize that many of you out there are like, “But Benjamin, what version of ‘Beautiful Day’ doesn’t suck?” and that’s fine. Seeing as I’m too-U2-fanboy-to-function (as has been repeatedly evidenced here), I’m inclined to disagree, but disagreeing is one of those things upon which we can all agree. And you know what else we can agree on? Lee DeWyze’s version is a total bore.
