“American Idol” down to top 3! Can Casey or Lee stop Crystal Bowersox’s march to the 2010 title?

By Greg Hernandez

Hollywoodnews.com: Just two more weeks to go before Crystal Bowersox is crowned American Idol champion. Oh, did I jump the gun? She’s just so much better than everyone else – and has been from the very beginning – that it’s just got to go her way.

But, if Adam Lambert could come in second last year (still a head-scratcher) than anything can happen.

Last night, Michael Lynche was sent packing. He had a most excellent run and was saved by judges last month after being voted off. He made the most of his stay of execution and it really seemed that either he or Casey James could have gone home last night.

That’s why Casey looked more relieved than anyone!

I was feeling like Lee DeWyze was surpassing Crystal as the probable winner but I’ve changed my mind. He’s got super talent and good looks but does not articulate himself well in the interviews.

    LOVE YOUR ARTICLE !!! I LOVE CRYSTAL BOWERSOX ,ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED IDOLS EVER. PLEASE VOTE,VOTE,VOTE ALL THE WAY TO THE END. I JUST CAN’T TAKE ANOTHER UPSET LIKE LAST YEAR, ADAM LAMBERT WAS ROBBED. IF SHE DOESN’T WIN IT WILL BE AN EVEN BIGGER JOKE THAN LAST YEAR. CRYSTAL BOWERSOX FOR THE TITLE.

    Crystal is without a doubt the best,but my fear is those damn teens that vote on looks alone.She is up against not one,but two young good looking guys.I will be voting till my fingers are sore and hopefully others will do the same.I can’t believe Ellen’s song choice for Crystal next week.It is “Maybe I’m Amazed”,Paul McCartney.Casey got a great one,”Daughters”,John Mayer.Lee got Hallelujah,Leonard Cohen.I would say Crystal got the short end of a stick on song choices.

    I have no expectations that Crystal Bowersox will win American Idol this season. She is CLEARLY, obviously, far and away, the most talented person on the show this season… but American Idol is just some big popularity contest whose winners are primarily determined by Tweenies (pre-teens). If Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert can’t even win, you know that the voting is meaningless and/or rigged.

    LEE will knock them both OUT….so WHAT that he can’t articulate himself well in interviews. Nerves get the best of all of us sometimes. The most important thing is that he has an ability to SING ( he does it with more heart than anyone), humility( acting like you don’t care gets old, ahem ala Crystal), stage presence, and good looks. Crystal is good but her style (both musically speaking and fashionably) is what will lose out. No one wants to listen to Melissa Etheridge/ Janis Joplin types nowadays. It’s a cool sound but not relevant to today’s market. Casey is a model masquerading as a karaoke singer. ” Jealous Guy” was his standout performance but I can’t recall anything else he’s sang. Lee, I heart you
