Crystal Bowersox, Casey James, and Lee Dewyze are the top three finalists on season 9 of American Idol.

Keep reading for more details on the final face-off between the top three finalists and what they think of making it this far…

And then there were three. Crystal Bowersox, Casey James, and Lee Dewyze are going head-to-head this week on American Idol to see which two aspiring artists will perform live at the Nokia Theater for the season finale and the AI title. Naturally, the three young singers are thrilled to have made it this far and give major props to their fans.

“I come from a small town where everyone knows everyone – it’s a really tight-knit community. Everyone’s incredibly excited for me, and I couldn’t be more excited for them. I’ve heard that things were looking pretty dismal back home, and now everyone is rallying because they have something to believe in. It’s amazing that it can be me who lifts the spirits of the people in my hometown. I’m forever grateful for their support and love, and I can’t wait to come home and see everybody,” Crystal Bowersox says.

Lee Dewyze echoes her sentiments, saying “I’m very appreciative of this whole experience. Truthfully, there’s more than just getting up there and performing every week. It’s the people back at home – and the people everywhere – who are voting for me and supporting me. Without them, I wouldn’t be here. Going back home and getting to see all the people that will be there is going to be really awesome.”

“To all my hometown people – thank you. I know they’re rooting for me like crazy and voting their butts off, so I owe them a huge thank you. I’ll never be able to show it enough. Even saying thank you a million times wouldn’t be enough. I am excited to go home and see my fans, and I am excited to smell that Texas air again. It sounds stupid, but that’s going be one of the best things for me,” Casey James says.The three American Idol are currently meeting fans and performing concerts today in their respective hometowns in Ohio, Illinois, and Texas. The segments will be featured on this week’s episode of Idol, airing Tuesday, May 18th, in which each of the top three competitors will perform two songs–one that the judges choose and one that they select. On Wednesday’s results show, the two finalists will be revealed and Justin Bieber and Travis Garland will perform.
