Crystal Bowersox - American Idol Season 9 runner-up
The latest news, interviews, and performance Videos!
Crystal is a rocking singer,she is what this country needed, a new voice to this old music,shes a beautifull person with a big heart and voice,im looking forward to watching her win on american idol.
This girl is the one piece of pure musical creativity and originality that has ever actual made it this far on american idol. . America has become so insensitive towards good music nowadays; all they want is some pop pretty girl who can sing there favorite song good, but sounds just like the past 5 year line up of glossy dull wanna be pop artist. Crystal if you by some chance read this, which i hope you do, PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE anything about your identity, style, and class in music. I believe that you are honestly too good for american idol. When I watch your performances, I feel like I am watching someone who already has a record and has been performing for years now. You are an incredible musician and performer, you were born to do it. DO NOT CHANGE!! ps.(stick to those blues roots, besides the fact that you are an incredible musician and performer, that is one of the main things that attracts me to our music.)ps again.( in the future once you are established, I can definitely see you doing some musical work with jack white or john mayer, like i said stick to the blues roots.)
You are the only reason I even watch this season. You are a musician!!! I can not wait to buy your album. I can only imagine how great your own music is... I know what it is like to be reserved, everyone thinks your conceded, full of yourself and such when it is actually just the opposite. Hang in there and keep rocking it!
Great performance! You are America's next IDOL!
I second everything that was said,you are amazing Crystal and will be such a joy to listen to for years to come!! I hope the organizers of Lillith Fair have you on their radar, what an amazing addition you would be!!
I want to ditto the comments of Josh Daigle, he said it exactly right. Do not change or succumb to the Hollywood red carpet glitter. Stay true to yourself and your music! You are too good for American Idol, but I get that it's an opportunity you can't pass up. You don't even need to win, you have already won. Just release your album, and enjoy the ride Crystal. You are great!
Think you are great, would not change anything about you. I have been listening to Pink lately and think a couple of songs may work for your awesome voice if you need to pick more current music or have weird genre to sing to. Either "Glitter in the Air" or "Bad Influence". Am participating in an office pool and randomly drew your name - must be fate as you were my fave before the office pool.
You rock, Crystal! Song suggestion -- Amos Lee's "Kid." Or anything else off that great CD of his, Last Days At The Lodge. Would showcase your voice and your guitar playing abilities. Keep up the great work on the show!!
The most all around talented woman to ever grace that stage.Nine years of dragging through the commercial muck and finally i get to vote.Had never voted before,she is an honest to god artist.nuff said,go Soxy go
Crystal,Great job, I look forward to you're album. I would love to hear you sing "What's goin on" by 4 non blondes. You would ROCK that song!! :)
Well done Crystal. You blow the doors off all the other contestants
I love how she knows EXACTLY who she is. She can belt out the songs and she's cute with her little carpet. She IS the winner.
I am so blown away by Crystal..literally she is the only reason I'm watching any tv! I have to 100% AGREE with Josh Daigle's comments. I feel the same...like I'm watching an already well-known artist when I see Crystal perform. I LOVE her laid-back, easy going attitude...which to me, is a wonderful personality! She's not full of Hollywood hype...which people love about her. I disagree with Ellen & Kara on the show saying Crystal needs to connect more with the audience...are you kidding me?!! The audience is going NUTS for Crystal, on the show and those watching. She IS connecting! People love her AS IS!!! I agree with Simon's recent comments that she doesn't need to change a thing and that she IS a serious artist. Keep singing from your soul Crystal..you already have what it takes!! You don't need any mentoring, you know who you are and where the music in your soul comes from. You're an artist whose been paying her dues and it shows in the passion you smoothly and brilliantly display.
I picked Crystal to win this after seeing her audition just to get on the show. Awesome to have a throwback to good ole roots rock from the Heartland. Speaking of which, does anyone know if Crystal is a BoDeans fan? I ask because they also use small area rugs for the two frontmen to stand on for all performances. Even have a graphic logo on a CD that is the two carpets they stand on.
Still waiting for the album :-) In the meantime will have to soak up all the music here and on idol but Crystal is this seasons reason to watch! Keep up the beautiful music and the awesome spirit you are!!
I have seen an amazing amount of singers, and I know this...when the hair on my head and arms stand on end...like when I heard Barbra Streisand. and Josh Grobin for the first time I knew they were going to be the greatest singers. Well there goes my hair and now I am even in tears. No matter what~~~you will be a star. Not shall but WILL. (will is positive)
Watching you from Canada Crystal!Your talent is truely amazing, just be yourself no matter what they say! Your music comes from your heart and soul, and that is something unique!
I pray she doesn't win...she's is so beyond what they will turn her in to. Look at Chris Allen...he was awesome until "they" commercialized him. Listen to the advice and stay true to who you are because NOTHING about needs to be any different. AMAZING voice and delivery!!
Can't wait till tues.Kind of worried she had no updates today.ash.ohio
I agree with CarolLaCC.... Crystal doesn't need to change a thing... She's Crystal & we wouldn't want her to change!!!! she's sweet, easy going,straight forward, beautiful,& an awesome musician!! All of N.W. Ohio is very proud of her, & the signs are already going up suporting her talents!!! (from the Eliston/Tro. Rd. to the windows of area businesses!!!!) We love you Crystal!! Keep up the good work!!! :o) Sue
