They came close.

American Idol Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze passed through Santa Rosa on Wednesday night at The Last Day Saloon in Railroad Square.

Tonight AI Season 8 winner Kris Allen performs at the same venue in the 5th annual Chris MIX concert sponsored by radio station MIX 104.9.

The pair join up Sunday night in Oregon City, Oregon for a Christmas show there at the Abernathy Center.

Tickets at the door tonight are $20. Still one of your best holiday bargains.
