Crystal Bowersox's fans might be wondering why she wasn't accompanied by his boyfriend Tony during "American Idol" final show. And the talent search contestant has revealed why, saying that he split from him on the morning of the final performances.

Talking to Ryan Seacrest and Kara DioGuardi on his radio show, runner-up Crystal said, "He's driving somewhere. Big Tony... he went home. He wasn't cool with the lifestyle." The 24-year-old beauty further explained, "I didn't break up with him... it was a mutual thing."

"It's cool though, we're both logical, grown adults. He's a small town guy and that's fine, I'm a small town girl, but I want this," Crystal added. "I want this more than anything, this career, this lifestyle. I didn't think he was up for it... he didn't think he was up for it."

On "American Idol" result in which she was beaten out by Lee DeWyze after he received the highest vote in the final, Crystal shared, "I was a little sad that he did it on performance day, but then again it set that fire to my belly."

I believe that Crystal and Lee had great voices...but neither one of then should have won the compettion. Both were not an American "Idol". This is what's wrong with Lee: he dressed like a pig on every occasion, he wasn't shaven properly, his eyes were always half closed, he had no personality (on or off stage), no "umph"...and on the other hand, Crystal also dressed sloppy, she's overweight, huge tattoos on her back and who knows elsewhere, her teeth were attocious with the spaces on both sides of here upper teeth, and also an unwed mother!...and she certainly had no stage presence, plus an ugly looking beatnik-marijuana smoking father with his stupid hat on covering his bald head ..Both truly were no idols...talented Yes...but not an "Idol" for anyone...and certainly I wouldn't want my children to look like them

That's so weird ... I remember telling my husband during the very beginning of the season I like "that" guy, when I first saw Lee. I thought he was super cute and a good singer, i'm glad he won.

I am a 70 year old grandmother and I love Crystal's voice and her singing style. I called in for her every week. Lee is good too I think they will both have a good career in the music business. Good luck to both of them. Good luck to Simon too, I will miss Simon, he was blunt but he was only trying to help them do better.

I voted everytime for Crystal and she never had a bad performance. Lee is a great singer too but I think the young girls went crazy over him and that is why he got two percent more votes. I think they will both be big stars and I wish the best for both of them. Actually, my mother grew up in a little town right next to hers in Ohio..Graytown and my mother had a teacher named must have been her great grandmother. Such a smal world it is.
