Cheerleaders and a high school marching band are helping welcome "American Idol" finalist Lee Dewyze back to his suburban Chicago hometown.
Dewyze waved to hundreds of cheering fans along the route of a motorcade from the back of a black convertible Friday in Mount Prospect. Many along the parade route wore bright yellow shirts that said "Vote 4 Lee."
Earlier, Dewyze threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field before a Cubs game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He's scheduled to give a concert later at a local racetrack.
