-"American Idol" contestant Crystal Bowersox, talking to MTV News' Jim
Cantiello about her status as the current favorite on the ninth season
of the show. Bowersox chatted with Cantiello during the Top 12 party in
Hollywood on Thursday night (March 11), where the dozen remaining
contestants met the media and began to get acquainted with their new
lives as stars in both music and television. Bowersox is a rare case in
the world of "American Idol," as she had never really seen the show
prior to auditioning, so she is constantly being surprised by aspects
of the show. "I had no idea what happens behind the scenes," she told
Cantiello. The resident MTV News "American Idol" expert also asked
Bowersox about the group numbers that open up every show. "I may not
look like I'm having the best time, but I am. I enjoy it," she said.
So far, Bowersox has had a handful of excellent performances but may be
best known for her hospital stay that nearly cost her a spot on the
show. But she ended up recovering in time to tear the house down, which
became her personal highlight. "My favorite performance was 'As Long As
I Can See the Light,'" she told Cantiello. "Hours earlier I had gotten
out of the hospital, and I was just really happy to be healthy enough
to perform that song."
“American Idol” contestant Crystal Bowersox went to the hospital
yesterday, and the show switched up the schedule to accommodate her.
The boys performed last night instead of the girls, who will perform
tonight. I’ve got the scoop on why Crystal Bowersox went to the
hospital and some thoughts on how it will affect the competition.
Crystal Bowersox’s hospital visit
Crystal Bowersox went to the hospital because of diabetes
complications, according to Us Weekly. However, though her absence
pushed the girls’ competition to tonight, Crystal Bowersox’s hospital
stay was short and sweet. The magazine reports that she is cleared to
perform tonight, when the “American Idol” competition will resume with
the girls’ performances.
It’s a bit early to be betting your paycheck loans on who is going to
take the title, but I think Crystal Bowersox will remain a competitor
on “American Idol” for quite some time. Furthermore, Crystal Bowersox’s
hospital trip can only improve her chances. Now that she’s all over the
news, more people will be paying attention to Crystal Bowersox if they
A different type of contestant
“American Idol” judges have said from the beginning that Crystal
Bowersox isn’t your usual “American Idol” contestant. Even Crystal
Bowersox herself has said that she never imagined herself being on
“American Idol.” She is very open about the fact that she only tried
out for “American Idol” because of her son. This woman doesn’t want to
rely on payday loan companies to support her family.
Her story and her honesty have won her fans. Her performances have won
over viewers like me; she has been one of my favorites all along. Now,
Crystal Bowersox’s hospital trip will only improve her chances, as
sympathy from the audience will probably affect some voters who didn’t
already favor her.
‘American Idol’ this week
Although the boys didn’t get many rave reviews from the judges last
night, they seemed prepared for the switch-up. There were a few strange
twists as Lee Dewyze and Andrew Garcia left their guitars back stage,
and Casey James traded acoustic for electric.
Now that she’s out of the hospital, Crystal Bowersox will be back to
perform and compete with the other girls on a two-hour “American Idol”
tonight. Just like last week, the results of the vote — meaning who is
eliminated — will be announced Thursday.
