May 30, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


Crystal Bowersox wasn’t too surprised that her competitor, Lee Dewyze, took the victory on American Idol. In fact, Bowersox says that not only did she know Dewyze would win, she hoped that he would. Keep reading for more details on what Bowersox said to Dewyze in the final moments before the winner was announced…

Crystal Bowersox says that the stress of American Idol never got to her, even in the final moments. The day of the finale, she says, “I had a strange sense of calm. I got to see my son and he’s doing good. I woke up and had breakfast, eggies and toast, just like any other morning. I was serene and just Zen. I’ve kind of been that way the whole time. No matter what happens, I’m going to be okay, my son’s going to be okay. I’m healthy, my son’s healthy. My family is going to be just fine, and I couldn’t really be happier for this whole journey.”

Crystal Bowersox also says that she had a feeling the American Idol victory was going to Lee Dewyze, who she calls her “musical crush.” According to Bowersox, during the final moment before the winner was announced, she and Dewyze ”held hands and I gave him a hug and I said, ‘I hope you win,’ and he said, ‘I hope you win,’ and I was trying to tell him, ‘Lee, you totally got this. You’re going to win. Don’t worry about last night’s performance if you didn’t feel like you did well. It doesn’t matter because you are just an amazing person and it’s all going to work out for you.’”

Besides losing the competition, Crystal Bowersox said the one thing she regrets about the American Idol finale was not meeting a certain star. “I didn’t get a chance to talk to Bret Michaels and I didn’t get a chance to watch the performance but I could hear it. He’s an inspiring story. He has Type I diabetes as well and the health issues he’s had and for him to come out on stage and rock it, I think that’s amazing,” she says.
