The ninth American Idol will be named this week and longtime judge Simon Cowell thinks he knows who it will be. The Brit chatted with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show about the top two finalists, Lee Dewyze and Crystal Bowersox. He also discussed his feelings about filming his last episode of American Idol ever. Keep reading for Cowell’s prediction of who will be crowned champion and his mixed feelings about the finale…

Tomorrow night, the newest winner of American Idol will be crowned. Either Lee Dewyze or Crystal Bowersox will be named the season 9 victor and longtime judge Simon Cowell weighs in on who he thinks the champ will be. “If you’d asked me five or six weeks ago, 100 percent I would have said Crystal [Bowersox]. But now I’ve changed my mind. I think Lee [Dewyze] is going to win,” Cowell told Ellen DeGeneres today.

Simon Cowell is really rooting for Lee Dewyze to win the singing competition because of his lack of opportunity in the past. “He’s worked in a paint shop,” Cowell says. “He’s talented. He hasn’t had any real breaks in life, and this has given him a shot, and I like that.”

Not only will a winner be crowned on Wednesday night’s episode of American Idol, Simon Cowell will also bid farewell to the show that he’s worked on for nine seasons. “I am feeling a bit sad because we’re nearly there. But at the same time, do you remember that last three weeks when you were leaving school, and you kind of couldn’t wait to get out? It’s a little bit like that,” he says. “I’m not being ungrateful. I’ve had a fantastic time, and the show changed my life, but I just kind of knew it was time to do something different.”
