Falling Slowly, Crystal and Lee’s superb duet tonight on American Idol

Singing duets isn’t easy and singing duets really well, is the mark of great singers.  The ability to listen to the other’s voice, adjust and add your voice harmonically without taking over the song is what great singers give to the performance of duets.   Within the short week of practice that Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze had to learn the song, they performed Falling Slowly tonight on American Idol perfectly together.
