'Idolatry': Crystal Bowersox on dream collaborations (Adam Lambert?), confrontations with judges, and what she'd change about 'Idol'
Crystal Bowersox is a fighter by nature, which is why she wasn’t going to let anything — a Hollywood Week put-down from Simon, a semifinal hospital scare, or the finale-night combination of high heels and a steep flight of stairs — get in the way of her American Idol run. Now, in her Idolatry interview, the season 9 runner-up discusses her dreams of co-producing her major-label debut disc, the duet she and Lee DeWyze almost chose over “Falling Slowly,” and what she wishes she’d done differently the night the season 9 Top 12 was announced. We also get Crystal’s thoughts on Tuvan throat singing, group-performance lip-synching, and that controversial lyric change on Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know.” Press play below for the whole hoo-hah and whatnot, and to get all my post-season updates on all your favorite Idol alumni, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak.
