Jon Peter Lewis’ pros and cons

AGE 24

HOMETOWN Rexburg, Idaho

FINALS-QUALIFYING SONG ”A Little Less Conversation”

HE SAYS ”The honest truth is I don’t try to care too much about what I look like all the time.”

PRO He’s got that Beck thing goin’ on…

CON …but what the heck is Beck doing on ”American Idol”?

EARLY WORD FROM SIMON ET AL. America may have made Jon Peter their wild-card choice, but Simon has deemed his voice as being too much like a cartoon character’s. Th-th-that’s all, folks.

WE SAY Jon Peter’s quirky talent, like John Stevens’, isn’t a great fit for ”Idol”’s mainstream pop.
