Blake Lewis: Idol's Next Biggest Loser

Blake Lewis: Idol's Next Biggest Loser

American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis is all smiles as he poses with his fans and carries his own luggage into his NYC hotel on Monday.

“I’m kind of glad I didn’t win for, like, contractual reasons,” Blake told People. “I think if you’re first you might have to come back for like three years or something.”

Hot on the heels of Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson and successful rocker Chris Daughtry, Blake is on the fast track to becoming Idol‘s next successful “loser.”

“I think we suffer from Jennifer Hudson- and Chris Daughtry-itis, which is people who didn’t win getting great careers and now a lot of the contestants believed it absolutely doesn’t matter,” Simon Cowell has told Entertainment Weekly. “Sometimes there’s part of me thinking, ‘You genuinely couldn’t care less what we’re got to say; everything’s going your own way now.’”

Will Blake Lewis surpass Jordin Sparks in record sales… and even fame?

    this is such a non story. blake, jennifer and chris have all thanked idol repeatedly. but people harp on little sound bites. would they have come back to the show, if they were so down on it?

    simon can get over it now. it’s a nice place to start, but they all hope it’s not all that becomes of them. we all know where they came from, so there is no hiding from the show.

    but he and others expect them to say “american idol” everytime they opent their mouths. get over it.

  • Mmmmm

    I wonder if he will come out of the closet or will hide it like Clay?

  • jam

    he’s cute, id fuck him but WHERE THE HELL’S HIS TOP LIP?

  • [Fug Face You]

    oh wow, he’s not popular enough for people to start calling him gay, at least wait till his first album comes out before you start with those corny jokes.

  • Amanda

    I don’t really care for Blake Lewis and I definitely don’t think he has the talent Jennifer Hudson has. Everyone knew Jennifer had talent. American Idol is a popularity contest it is not about who is the most talented singer. Blake Lewis is not that great a singer he has adequate voice but he’s not super talented as Elliot Yamin. I also don’t like Lewis attitude I just feel he is full of himself and that’s my personal opinion.

    American Idol didn’t really help Jennifer Hudson. Hudson was off the show for over three years prior to getting the role in Dreamgirls. Jennifer beat out 782 other girls for the part in Dreamgirls she earned it on her own. And I am so sick and tired of Cowell trying to claim a part of Jennifer’s success. Jennifer did it on her own and now she’s an Academy award winning actress!

    FYI Jennifer also has NO ties to Cowell at all those American Idol contracts are LETHAL they really screw the artist over. Now that Jennifer is on Clive Davis label she is doing things HER WAY!!! GO JENNIFER!!!!!

    Amanda, Idol didnt help her – her weight did, Idol was just the first and only thing writting on her resume.

    Common knowledge – Beyonce would of got the fat-girl role if she was heavier.

  • Amanda

    You obviously know nothing about the play Dreamgirls. And if you bothered to read Entertainment Weekly you would know that Beyonce wanted the role of Deena because she had more screentime. Yet the core role everyone loves is the Effie White role. And Beyonce doesn’t got the acting or the singing ability that Jennifer Hudson has. Jennifer really stole the show with her incredible voice and she swept the Golden Globe, SAG, and the Academy Awards. Idol didn’t help Jennifer win that Oscar she did it on her own.

  • [Fug Face [x]]

    Amanda, you obviously did hear the words come out of Beyonce’s mouth, she wanted to play the ‘fat-girl’ but she wasn’t fat enough, and she would of played the fat-girl is she was FAT!

    oh yea, what did fatty do before and after dreamgirls… hmm – nothing.

    OMG this guy is so fug! Ewwwww

  • Best of Celeb

    Isn’t the point of declaring a winner that the losers fade back into the shadow?

  • Jon

    Blake is a very nice guy, and a great entertaining, lots of fun, a good singer as well (he doesn’t screech, like Jordin, but he’s a good singer). He is popular because not everyone likes off-key screaming. As for the top lip – nobody is perfect. That booty makes up for any other flaws.

    I hope he’ll have a great career. Jordin is just generic, and if this show really were about singing, Melinda would have won.

  • Ci Ci

    I keep hearing about his ass and how hot it is. Anyone know here I can find some good pictures of it?

  • Irma

    Blake is sooooooooooooo going to beat Jordin at the selling albums. He is so much more talented, as Simon said Jordin has the better voice, but Blake is the best performer, and that is what counts in the real world. I´m sure he is going to do great. His beatboxing with Doug E fresh at the finale was awesome!!!

  • cutie pie

    please boycott this idiot fug face commenting on every post. he thinks he knows everything about everybody. damn he is so GROSS

  • Courtney

    Blake is soooooooooooooooooooo SEXY. He is soooooooooooooooooooo going 2 beat Jordin in selling albums. I think Blake should have won American Idol I was soooooooooooooo MAD when I watched the finale because Blake didn’t win. I hope he make a lot of albums because I am going 2 buy them ALL. I can’t wait til his first album comes out.
    I LOVE YOU BLAKE!!!!!!!!!!! I am going 2 marry you some day I promise.

  • Courtney

    I am going 2 go see Blake at the Mark on August 8th. I wanted first row, but instead got main floor, section B, row 13. I will trade anybody seats if they r closer 2 the stage if they r going 2 the Mark on August 8th.
    I LOVE YOU BLAKE!!!!!!!!!!! WILL YOU MARRY ME??????????? well I have 2 wait a couple years cause i’m only 14, but we are only 12 years a part. I LOVE YOU BLAKE!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SEXY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • loffles

    To Amanda:

    If you think that good singing is only belting and shouting, then you no NOTHING about music. Blake has a beautiful voice, IMO. He can just sing one note and it will put me at ease. His voice is very soothing, I love it. He might not be able to belt out a song like Jordin, or Melinda.. But he still has a pretty voice, and he can still make it big with out a huge voice. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the shouting and belting crap, I like smooth and soft voices. No shouting for me plz.
