In a separate teleconference Friday, Lewis, 25, of Bothell, Wash., was asked if he thought the contest might be permanently more hip because of him.

"I can only hope that it keeps the contemporary edge," he said, including when it comes to the recording artists brought in to advise contestants.

This season, golden oldies singer Barry Gibb and Peter Noone were among those playing "Idol" mentor.

When it came to his choice of songs, Lewis said he stayed true to the music he's been making for years, with influences including '80s dance tunes and hip-hop. He deliberately picked one song, Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" to show he was more than a beatboxer.

He was using "my 'strategery,' as George Bush would say," Lewis said, becoming perhaps the first "Idol" contestant to crack a politically aware joke.

He admires candor, Lewis said a few moments later, responding to a question about the on-air support he got from "The View" hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. (O'Donnell left the show Friday after a dustup with Hasselbeck.)

"I love Rosie O'Donnell. She just says whatever she wants," he said, adding that's his style as well. "I'm pretty honest and blunt and sometimes a little tactless."
