Naturally, the three young singers are thrilled to have made it this far and give major props to their fans.
â€œI come from a small town where everyone knows everyone â€“ itâ€™s a really tight-knit community. Everyoneâ€™s incredibly excited for me, and I couldnâ€™t be more excited for them. Iâ€™ve heard that things were looking pretty dismal back home, and now everyone is rallying because they have something to believe in. Itâ€™s amazing that it can be me who lifts the spirits of the people in my hometown. Iâ€™m forever grateful for their support and love, and I canâ€™t wait to come home and see everybody,â€Â Crystal Bowersox says.
Lee Dewyze echoes her sentiments, saying “Iâ€™m very appreciative of this whole experience. Truthfully, thereâ€™s more than just getting up there and performing every week. Itâ€™s the people back at home â€“ and the people everywhere â€“ who are voting for me and supporting me. Without them, I wouldnâ€™t be here. Going back home and getting to see all the people that will be there is going to be really awesome.â€
