'American Idol' winners: Where are they now?
Season nine's winner didn't exactly set the world on fire. His major label debut, "Live It Up," was the lowest-selling debut ever from an "Idol" champ, and his label, RCA, dropped him in late 2011. However, his pre-"Idol" label, WuLi, released some of DeWyze's earlier work in February 2012. The singer said in a post on The Daily Beast website in May 2012 that I cant sit here and say winning 'American Idol' was everything I thought it would be.
