Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze will vie for the title of "American Idol" May 25. Casey James was eliminated from this season's "American Idol" — often a stepping stone to the Broadway stage — May 19 following a public vote. The announcement was made during the live broadcast of the country's biggest singing competition.
Among the many "American Idol" finalists and/or winners who have appeared on Broadway are Fantasia (The Color Purple), Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young (both back on Broadway in Hair), Tamyra Gray, Constantine Maroulis (on Broadway in Rock of Ages), Frenchie Davis, Clay Aiken and Taylor Hicks (currently in the national tour of Grease).
