Mount Prospect native and Barrington neighbor, Lee DeWyze did it!!! He’s officially in the top three and one step closer to winning the 2010 American Idol crown. That means the spotlight shines on Mount Prospect this week when Lee DeWyze comes home with the Ameriacn Idol crew to celebrate his roots here in the Chicago Northwest Suburbs.
Arlington Park, where he’ll perform three songs in an hour long mini-conert at 6:30PM hosted by Mount Prospect Mayor Mayor Irvana Wilks. Tickets to that event went on sale immediately after last night’s American Idol results show and are already sold out!
Mount Prospect village officials say “DeWyze Day” could cost up to $40,000, but they’re proud of Lee DeWyze, excited to host his hometown visit and thrilled to throw their support behind a local dude who could be two weeks away from wining it all.
