Lee DeWyze Gets All Dolled Up for Adorable “Fight” Video

March 20, 2014 10:35 AM ET

Season 9 "American Idol" winner Lee DeWyze once memorably surprised everyone by having a kilt-clad bagpiper join him on live TV. But it turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his creativity — as evidenced by his adorably inventive, doll-tastic new video for "Fight," which he wrote and directed with Nickelodeon graphic artist Andrew Michael Golden.

"When making this video, I wanted something people haven't seen before. I wanted it to be whimsical, heart-warming, funny, and visually exciting," Lee tells Yahoo's Reality Rocks. "The song in itself is an anthem for fighting for whatever it is you believe in, and a song everyone can relate to. I hope everyone gets lost in the music, the lyrics, and the magic of the video."

Whether you're a Lee fan or you voted for Crystal Bowersox that season, or even if you've never seen an episode of "American Idol" in your life, it'll be impossible for you to watch this sweet, charming video and not crack a smile. And if you are familiar with Lee DeWyze, then prepare to be amazed by just how much that little cloth dolly looks like him. It's an uncanny idol of an Idol, for sure.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
