The pressure onÂ American Idol is getting to be too much for one contestant.

If it wasn’t forÂ American Idol hostÂ Ryan Seacrest, the dreadlocked singer could be long gone by now.
According to a source, Bowersox walked off the set of theÂ FOX singing competition, threatening to quit altogether.Â Ryan Seacrest reportedly went after the young singer and had a meaningful talk with her in the studio parking lot. The source claims thatÂ Crystal Bowersox blamed the show’s high-pressure competitive environment and all of the unwanted media attention for making her want to go home. Fortunately, theÂ American Idol host convinced Bowersox to stay in the competition instead of returning to her family in Ohio.
The argumentÂ Ryan Seacrest used was simple and straightforward: by sticking it out in the competition,Â Crystal Bowersox could potentially land a recording contract and become a millionaire. According to TMZ, theÂ American Idol host told her,Â Â ”The greatest thing I ever did was make enough money so I could buy my mom a house. You can buy your mom a house.”
