Crystal Bowersox - American Idol Season 9 runner-up
The latest news, interviews, and performance Videos!
Crystal...I wish you all the luck in the world because you have an enormous talent...God gave you a great set of pipes and I, for one, had hoped (and voted for) you would win the top spot.Unfortunately, while Lee is also talented in his own right, I thought you were the one who deserved to win...and I also wish him a lot of luck in his pursuits.However, I know you've been doing this a long time...and, while I don't know you at all, you seem to be very grounded in your abilities and attitude. Being humble and grateful is always best...in my humble opinion.In any case, much luck and laughter for you and your family...and I can't wait for your first CD!Sincerely,RJ
Crystal, you rock and should have been the Idol. You are amazingly talented and you seem like a totally cool person. Your son is so cute! Enjoy the success that will come your way. You'll always be my American Idol!JR
You both are great ,and Casey too.Best of luck to you all.
It's really comforting to know that because this turned out the way it did, we'll see really good interviews and appearances from these two. It seems that Crystal feels okay with knowing she was did earn the win, but the fangirls would just rather Lee take the prize.Crystal looks like she has a very positive and professional attitude, and it really helps the fans accept that it's not the end of the world for to come 2nd. Thanks to Mama Sox for comforting us and teaching us that we can rise above these disappointments.
Crystal is the best and I believe an investigation needs to be done. When I called in my vote the automated voice said "thank you for voting for contestant one" Crystal was contestant two and I believe many votes were misdirected to Lee when they should have been for Crystal. I have read many comments around the internet that many others had the same thing happen to them. In any case, I can't wait for Crystal's album and will never buy or listen to any of Lee's stuff. He's not that good.
Crystal...will do just fine. She has natural talent.Does not matter that she didn't win the "title." That title doesn't always mean someone's going to go on and do fantastic things. IT's all about talent and drive. Crystal has it. Can't wait for the album...Kelly
Crystal, I think you are an amazing talent. I am excited for your album and to hear your music. I will buy tickets when you alone go on tour. Let the bubble gum girls go to the Idol tour. Much success in all you do. Don't forget (not that I think for a minute that you would) to set up that college fund for your darling son.
crystal - my husband and I really enjoyed your singing - we voted for you all the way along and were sorry you didnt win - however, we know you will do really well and we will buy your music when it comes out. i concur with the last comment from anonymous - there seemed to be problems with calling in and the direction or redirection of the voting. i too, think it should be checked. good luck crystal and baby and take care. cheers Mark & Kate
Crystal,It was so surreal watching you on TV this season. I would have contacted you sooner, but wasn't sure if you'd remember me. We stood in line in Chicago at auditions and shared umbrellas and joked about how we should exchange autographs "just in case" one of us made it. Well congrats girlie!! I wish you all the best! :) Your little man will appreciate it when he's old enough to realize!
Crystal,You are a true winner in every sense of the word. Not only do you have a talent that is simply huge, you have also inspired many, many young people who struggle with diabetes. You touched something in me the moment I heard your soaring voice. It took me many weeks to discover what it was that affected me so profoundly every time you sing ... you put me in touch with my past, particularly listening to Janis Joplin.Stay true to yourself, Crystal ... you will be a shining star for many years to come!All the best,Nancy Parker
Crystal, you and Lee sound so great together - I'd love to see y'all collaborate on a few songs if not an entire album! I agree that you both won - the number 2 spot is a great place to be & I congratulate you! Looking forward to your album.
music is as much a feeling as a sound.... Once again the public vote was wrong, all be it Lee is a formidable apponent, the title should have gone to Mama Sox. Her passion shines through with everything she sings....ROCK ON Crystal, were waiting for your album
If this contest was about talent instead of votes then Crystal would have one. It about money and sales and having said that, I still think that alot of these young people are going to do something thier lives because they have been seen and heard all across this nation. I say congratulations to all of you and good luck and keep on doing what you love to do, being a musician/singer myself, i know that passion. I past up my chance and im telling all of you to keep going. I love you chrystal and lee and all of you for taking that step to the future that you want. Im proud of all of you because you are doing while you are young enough to do it.
I hope lee an crystal hook up. they sound great together look good together and have same passion for music. you both are gorgeous
Crystal, Being a musician/vocalist of 33 years, I knew you were the best vocalist from the start. However, the other finalists are all kind, talented and unique individuals. I think after a while, as a viewer, you come to love each and every one. Grabbing the title doesn't mean instant success......most contestants go further in their careers without the title. The coolest thing ever is that you are all friends and are sincerely plugging for each other. It's a total win-win. You go girl! can't wait to hear your first CD!!! xo
I don't think Crystal got any kind of bump from Aaron or Casey's fans and therefore no way to pass Lee. Her vocals on the Tues & Wed shows were just amazing. The duet with Alanis should be on ITUNES right now.
