Former American Idol Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze finally makes an appearance tonight as part of the parade of alums featured as guest performers on Season 12.

Lee, who won American Idol back in 2010, is celebrating a new deal with Vanguard Records. On the Top 4 results show tonight, Lee performs “Silver Lining”, the first single off his forthcoming album. The former American Idol winner is still working on the CD, but it is due to hopefully be released this summer.

"This past year, I hunkered down and wrote an album," Lee said in a press release. "I wanted to take it back to what I'm really about, which is writing emotionally charged, meaningful songs. It wasn't like I wanted to find a label and then decide what kind of album to make. I knew what kind of album I wanted to make and knew I could make. It's going back to the kind of music I've always loved. The way I see it, everything that's happened throughout my career has happened so that I can make this record.”

Lee DeWyze will also be touring in support of his new album in June. Check out his American Idol performance from the Top 4 results show tonight below and catch him live in action at a venue near you!
