Lee DeWyze celebrations planned for Friday

Last week the very enthusiastic and helpful Harry Connick Jr. guided (and composed for and accompanied) the Top 5 on American Idol as they sang Frank Sinatra songs. Lee DeWyze's "That's Life" stood out as the best performance of the night, and on Wednesday's results show he was the first contestant revealed to be safe. Tonight the Top 4 contestants (Lee, Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche, and Casey James) perform songs from the movies. The three contestants that make the cut on Wednesday night's results show will then travel to their hometowns for parades, interviews, and other celebrations. If Lee continues on, he will be in the Mount Prospect and Chicago area this Friday! Wednesday night tickets will become available for Lee's Friday concert at Arlington Park at arlingtonpark.com.

Mount Prospect is ready to welcome home Lee DeWyze. In the morning Lee will do TV and radio interviews before throwing out the first pitch at the Cubs game at 1:30. At 4:30 there will be a parade along Northwest Highway, followed by the Arlington Park concert at 6:30.
