Blake Lewis Visits ‘The Morning Show’, Takes Lie Detector Test

‘American Idol’ season six runner-up Blake Lewis visited ‘The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet’ on Tuesday morning (December 18) to promote his debut album ‘Audio Day Dream’.

Lewis talked about how he’s happy he didn’t win in the finale against Jordin Sparks, the story behind the album name, how people believed he had ADD when growing up, enjoying New York City by partying at Nobu, taking a lie detector test, and performing on Fox’s ‘New Year’s Eve Live’ special with Jordin.

During the lie detector test, Blake was asked if he really liked Sanjaya Malakar, if he’d like to date Juliet, if he really didn’t mind losing to Jordin, if he liked Simon Cowell, if he’d like a mature woman, and if he hooked up with someone on ‘Idol’ (yes) – was it Antonella Barba (no – “Doesn’t mean I didn’t want to!).

Watch the lie detector test below.
