Crystal Bowersox wasn’t too surprised that her competitor,Â Lee Dewyze, took the victory onÂ 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 ofÂ American Idol never got to her, even in the final moments. The day of the finale, she says,Â â€œI had a strange sense of calm. I got to see my son and heâ€™s doing good. I woke up and had breakfast, eggies and toast, just like any other morning.Â I was serene and just Zen. Iâ€™ve kind of been that way the whole time. No matter what happens, Iâ€™m going to be okay, my sonâ€™s going to be okay. Iâ€™m healthy, my sonâ€™s healthy. My family is going to be just fine, and I couldnâ€™t really be happier for this whole journey.â€
Crystal Bowersox also says that she had a feeling theÂ American Idol victory was going toÂ Lee Dewyze, who she calls her “musical crush.” According to Bowersox, during the final moment before the winner was announced, she and DewyzeÂ ”held hands and I gave him a hug and I said, â€˜I hope you win,â€™ and he said, â€˜I hope you win,â€™ and I was trying to tell him, â€˜Lee, you totally got this. Youâ€™re going to win. Donâ€™t worry aboutÂ last nightâ€™s performanceÂ if you didnâ€™t feel like you did well. It doesnâ€™t matter because you are just an amazing person and itâ€™s all going to work out for you.â€™”
Besides losing the competition,Â Crystal Bowersox said the one thing she regrets about theÂ American Idol finale was not meeting a certain star.Â â€œI didnâ€™t get a chance to talk toÂ Bret Michaels and I didnâ€™t get a chance toÂ watch the performanceÂ but I could hear it. Heâ€™s an inspiring story. He has Type I diabetes as well andÂ the health issues heâ€™s hadÂ and for him to come out on stage and rock it, I think thatâ€™s amazing,â€ she says.
