American Idol Crystal Bowersox

Crystal Bowersox’s march to “American Idol” history will be shown on the big screens at the Huntington Center in Downtown Toledo.

On the evening of May 26, the streets around the arena — Huron, Jefferson and Madison — will be closed to host a block party sponsored by the City of Toledo and Lucas County. At 6:30 p.m., Huntington Center doors will open for free admission to the first 8,300 people to view the FOX broadcast of the “American Idol” results show.

After more than 47 million total votes, the Elliston native will face Chicago’s Lee DeWyze in the Season 9 “American Idol” finals May 25. The pair will perform live in the Nokia Theatre.

During the May 19 show, Bowersox’s original song, “Holy Toledo,” was featured on air during her hometown visit coverage. Bowersox mentioned to Ryan Seacrest that the song has become an anthem for the city. Video of the song is available right here on the blog and on Toledo Free Press’s Facebook page.

For NW Ohio residents, “American Idol” is on 8 p.m. May 25, with the result show May 26 at 8 p.m. on FOX Toledo.
