Blake Lewis's New 'Do: Love It or Hate It?

05/02/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

With all six American Idol finalists still intact after last week’s surprise twist — no one goes home! — it was only natural that the singers would turn things up a notch. Not only did Blake Lewis break from the expected with his beat-boxing rendition of “You Give Love a Bad Name,” he amped up his look by swapping out his blond spikes for an edgier black crop. Lewis certainly looks less fresh-faced than he did with the light locks, but is that a good thing? Tell us: What do you think of Blake’s new ‘do? Love it or hate it?

I think that he looks freakin amazing with the black hair. he definitely should keep it! SOOOO much hotter! :)

I love Blake no matter what his hair looks like. His hair looks great every week. I think the darker hair looks REALLY good, too. I disagree with those that think he’s following a “rock cliche.” Dark hair is dark hair and that’s all it is. If Blake wanted to change, cool. Change is good. That’s why I dyed my hair black last fall…
Blake’s dark hair looked great with the Bon Jovi rock theme and it will look great with whatever theme is next.
Go Blake!

HATE IT!!! AI is always changing someone for the sake of changing someone. his hair color was fine the way it was.

Gwen on

way to dark for him. NEVER go darker than your eyebrows!

Jenn on

He is so hot. Either way. He’d look fine with blue hair.

Beth on

I like the blonde look better. =)

Carrie on

Give Blake back his Blonde Locks!

i think that either way he is HOTT!!! and people who are saying it is not him! u dont know him!! so i think you shouldnt say it isnt him! unless U KNOW HIM! and just because his hair is black doesnt mean he is trying to be sanjaya!! or a emo! or a rocker! or a poser!or a follower! or whatever u want to say and if he is it doesnt make a difference he can do whatever he wants to do!!!and blond hair isnt that special!! but i think he is going to win it all!

LaToya on

He looks alright. I mean I think he’s very talented and all so the hair shouldn’t matter. To tell the truth, I didn’t even notice it! LOL!
