People Get Ready - Crystal Bowersox Top 7

I didn't watch American Idol this week but I did look up a few of the performances on youtube. I just had to blog about Crystal's performance. The theme this week was songs of inpiration and Crystal really nailed it this time. Her performance actually brought tears to my eyes. Such an emotional song and she sang it straight from the heart. She has so much natural personality in all of her performances and I think she will be the winner of American Idol.

Watch the video here.

  1. I totally agree with you. But, The show is a way to gain immediate stardom, without the blood, sweat and tears to rising slowly. I wonder what it does to these (especially) young people. The instant fame and fortune must parallel being a lottery winner. You are inclined to spend it all and end up poor! I hope she does well, but has good people around her!

  2. @ Jenn Jilks That is a great point. It is the nature of the beast. Hopefully she will have some good managers and accountants.

  3. Crystal has been my pick since day 1...but I hope that she doesn't actually win it so that she has more opportunities. Winning AI sticks them in a box that, until their contract with them is up, and they're stuck with an AI persona rather than their own. If you'll notice they keep trying to "change" her on the show. "Do this...do that..." instead of just letting her be herself, which is what got her noticed in the first place.

    If she doesn't take 1st place, it's going to be a Clay Aiken/Ruben Studdard scenario all over again...she will outshine the winner and be in the media more than the winner! I certainly hope so!!

  4. @ Witchie I have noticed that they try to change the contestants and criticize them for being the same each week. I never thought about how AI controls the winners. Great point. I can't remember the last time I heard a Clay Aiken song on the radio.
