'American Idol's' Lee DeWyze: 'Don't be afraid to take a risk.'

lee-dewyze-idol-winner.jpgLast year, Lee DeWyze was selling paint. Now, he's selling albums and concert seats. And Sunday (Aug. 8) night, DeWyze won his second award on a FOX show -- this time a surfboard.

Last season's American Idol was voted Teen Choice/Male Reality/Varsity Star at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, and he has some advice for fans.

"I am legitimately allowed to say anything can happen," DeWyze says. "If there is something you want to do, or if you have dreams of this or dreams of that -- don't be afraid of risk. That stops people from doing a lot of things. Everything is a risk, whether going to school or applying for a new job. Don't be afraid to take a risk."
