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):

Because “I guess that’s more of a fact than a joke” will never get old.  If anything, that line is my constant.

Thanks to Jiro for finding this.
