Simon Cowell knows music very well. So it should be no shock that the following clip is a treasured performance from his show, “American Idol.” The song, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, is sung by singer Lee DeWyze as part of the judge’s choice round.
And which judge requested it? None other than the big kahuna himself, Simon Cowell. “We always talk about the moment. It’s [Lee’s] night, big big night for him. I want him to do something that shows he has potential” explained Cowell. In addition, Cowell adds that it’s one of his faves! After this performance, it may be one of yours, too! Enjoy.
