Confirmed: Crystal Bowersox Almost Quit 'American Idol'


Confirmed: Crystal Bowersox Almost Quit 'American Idol'


She was feeling emotional drain and missed her son but Ryan Seacrest helped her to see the bigger picture and convinced her to stay.

The pressure of competition and sudden fame have taken its toll for Crystal Bowersox. The "American Idol" contestant who has never been in the bottom three wanted to quit the show two weeks ago but luckily Ryan Seacrest did an intervention. The host confirmed that he has convinced the mother of one to continue being in the show.

Seacrest caught up with the dreadlocked singer in the parking lot after the show. Bowersox told him that she hated the attention and missed her family in Ohio terribly. "What's the point?" she allegedly said. Then Seacrest motivated her, "The greatest thing I ever did was make enough money so I could buy my mom a house. You can buy your mom a house."

Seacrest was successful in convincing Bowersox to stay. The aspiring singer even posted a message on "Idol" Facebook page, "We all have moments of doubt. As much as I miss my kid, the big picture is this: I'm doing this for him and my fans. I'm having the time of my life!"

Next week, "Idol" will air the annual Idol Gives Back special and welcome Alicia Keys as mentor for the Top 7. Bowersox and the others are free to choose any "inspirational" songs for their performance.

    PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE: Doesn't anyone else question the convenient timing of the release or leak of this story on the Idol scene - in relation to it being done to perhaps prop up or heal the wounded reputation of Ryan Seacrest after last Tuesday's disrespectful and unprofessional performance. Surely I am not alone in this thought? Didn't anyone else notice that a MAIN theme in the reporting of this story was actually how Seacrest managed the situation and came to the rescue and "saved" the day - pun intended. I so have a gut feeling on this one folks - anyone else have this feeling. Seems a little transparent in the timing of this story "getting out". I'm really truly not the "conspiracy theory" type lol, tell me if I'm being ridiculous and there's not one shred of merit in my thinking, I'm open to it...have I let my mind run away with me on this one?
