Crystal did such an amazing

Crystal did such an amazing job.  I was definitely a fan of hers, always walking around with her stereo headphones on...  It's sort of a shame that the new seasons always start so soon.  It doesn't really give the public a chance to follow the old contestants because we're already preoccupied with the new season.

Carly S.

So true.  I honestly think

So true.  I honestly think Crystal is the first contestant that has caused people to be impatient for the show to end so that they can buy her music.  I know I am, I can't wait to hear her music - not the corny themed stuff that AI makes the contestants do.

u suck eggs

u suck eggs

Crystal, if you read these,

Crystal, if you read these, listen to Nina Simone's "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl" you could sing the s--t outta that song!!

U AND LEE ARE GREAT TOGETHER:)  DEF. NEED A DUET TOGETHER ON UR FUTURE ALBUM

I think Lee and Crystal should do Cheryl Crow/Kid Rock "Pictures" as a Duet, and Casey should do Pearl Jam "Alive, Black (unplugged) Yellow Ledbetter, or Why go Home?" Casey sings all tight lipped just like Eddie Vetter, for a solo Lee should try Goo Goo Dolls "Iris" (will drive the girls crazy), and I think Crystal would do justice to "I want a Little Sugar in My Bowl" by Nina Simone

Crystal eres una estrella, es

Crystal eres una estrella, es una verdadera lastima que en otros paises no podemos votar por vos. Sos increible, autentica Y Dios te bendijo con una maravillosa voz. Independientemente de lo que digan, a veces es necesario hacerse de oidos sordos y seguir adelante, hasta la meta. Felicidades!

Felicidades de que??? si aun

Felicidades de que??? si aun no le ha ganado a nadie??? En lo unico que tienes razon es que Latinoamerica deberia votar pero de ser asi te aseguro que Lee ganaria en votación... no se que tanta pelota le dan a la gorda esa, no canta mal es verdad pero tampoco canta mejor que LEE  y el le lleva ventaja en carisma y presencia, tiene el look mientras que ella es una gorda descuidada con dientes amarillos y  pinta de hippie...

i love casey n crystal

Crystal, you are simply

Crystal, you are simply wonderful! I loved your voice and song tonight, it was perfect and probably summed up many years of hopes and dreams - it touched me deeply. My concern? Staying your self under the immense pressure to be molded into what "music marketing mongers" want you to be after you win Idol. However, that is tempered with the hope that you are comfortable with who you are, where you've and where you want to be.

Great performance, great look (although I do prefer the more natural you) and passion. I've read and heard how people are comparing you to this person or that person ... but I believe in a few years, people will be comparing other "wanna be's" to you! You are wonderful, simply wonderful.

Crystal- You are the only reason I have been watching this show. God has given you a talent that is not compared. Don't listen to the critical things people have said, you know who you are and where you belong.. some people never figure that out. Blessings to your career and family! Just remember Who loves you, and you'll be fine.

Whatever! this BEEoch neede

Whatever! this BEEoch neede to go home! we all know idol will fix the votes so she will win. She might have alot of voters but there are still alot of people who hates her! with all her fakeness and ugliness I really hope she flops like a big  fat whale that she is!

I totally agree with you ! ;)

I totally agree with you ! ;) Crystal sucks

COMPLETELY UNCALLED FOR IF

COMPLETELY UNCALLED FOR IF YOU CANT SAY THINGS THAT ARE RESPECTABLE FOR HER THEN STAY OFF HER PAGE!!!!! SHE HAS PUT ALOT OF EFFORT AND HEART INTO THIS AND IF YOU CANT SEE IT THEN YOUR JUST FLAT OUT JEALOUS YOUR ASS ISNT THERE!!!!

You're kidding right? WHO ON

You're kidding right? WHO ON EARTH would be jealous of that fat cow?? she doesn't even sing that good, she's just alright and no charisma whatsoever...you must be her boyfriend to defend her like that ... hope she sinks like the huge titanic she is

I can see why the world is in

I can see why the world is in the mess it is with a comment like yours.  To write such words with so much hatred.  You watch this woman on TV.  You don't know her, so really, how can someone make such a statement as you did?  You must really detest yourself because when someone like you writes what you did, it's really all about you.  Quit being part of the society that is messing up our world and taking the kindness out.    Oh I almost forgot...Crystal ROCKS!  Lee's voice is awesome, but I am a Crystal fan.  See how easy it was to be kind.  Get some counseling to learn how to be kind.

well said :) couldn't agree

crystal you go girl you are the next american idol  me and my sister are coming to see.. you.. we both had  chills.

OMG GIRL YOUR DOING IT    

OMG GIRL YOUR DOING IT     KEEP IT UP  YOU GAVE ME THE CHILLS YOU GOT

I was just thinking last week

I was just thinking last week how Crystal has a touch of Janis in her voice and style, and wow did she channel Janis tonight! WOW!! Way to go girl!! :))

crystal should keep her look,

crystal should keep her look, just because she is not like everyone else doesn't give anybody the right to say anything about her hair. get a life people, and get some originality :) go crystal!

Is it just me, or...     does

Is it just me, or...     does it seem like people are voting for Crystal just because she's a mom? Sure, she's good enough to get in the top 24. But she didn't have a phenomenal performance. As a matter of fact, it flat-out sucked. But, as I'm looking at the most popular women, 28% of people are rooting for Crystal to win American Idol. 28%? Why? Are you crazy?

Flat-out sucked?  Either you

Flat-out sucked?  Either you are a 13 year old who is only interested in modern "Taylor Swift" type country or you are partially deaf.  Not only is she the best singer.  She seems to be the second most talented instrumentalist as well.  Casey clearly takes that with his blues guitar.  If anyone besides her wins it isn't being judged on talent.

Everyone is entitled to their

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even when it sucks! Idol is a talent show and very competitive, Crystal has shown both her talents and competitiveness, but primarily as it pertains to herself, not others.

But I agree with you Jessie, if anyone but Crystal wins this talent competitiion, it is either because she backs out (for what ever reason), completely destroys a song (which is not going to happen), forgets the lyrics (as if!) or the competition is rigged ... OR, dare I say it, the voting gets flooded by more types like Mr. "flat-out sucked" who wouldn't know talent if it bit them on the butt.

Frankly, I don't care if she

Frankly, I don't care if she is a mom or not. In fact, it can get alittle annoying with the kid stuff...but I don't care - she has the "it" people talk about...

Crystal blow the rest of the girls away. I like her because she is truly a singer - songwriter with years of experience. I do think it is unfair to the other wanna-bees - Crystal is the real deal and she out-classes all of them in maintaining pitch (highs and lows), key and sheer vocal power.

Her weekness is that she may not be "pop" enough for Idol crowd - Americana Rock can take her only so far - but she is a pleasure to behold - an Artist's Artist...

Her strength is that it doesn't matter if she wins or not at this point. Her life will change anyway - she already "made it" - even if she doesn't know it yet. As soon as she is done with Idol, someone will grab her to press a CD...She already has enough original material to fill a CD...she is already on her way...with or without Idol...

Good for her...she deserves it...

So true.  I honestly think

So true.  I honestly think Crystal is the first contestant that has caused people to be impatient for the show to end so that they can buy her music.  I know I am, I can't wait to hear her music - not the corny themed stuff that AI makes the contestants do. 

She is the kind of musician that other musicians become fans of and that is a real testament to her talent.

CUT THE MATS OUT OF YOUR HAIR

CUT THE MATS OUT OF YOUR HAIR .....that's disgusting...looks like a stray dog!!!

Finally this show has let

Finally this show has let through artists not just performers, there is a fine distinction, and crystal is an artist. I would actually listen to her on a cd not just on this silly show!

CRYSTAL IS THE NEXT...

CRYSTAL IS THE NEXT... AMERICAN IDOL!!

I know Crystal!!!  I went to

I know Crystal!!!  I went to camps together when we were in middle school and junior high in Ohio!  She was an amazing singer as a kid and ALWAYS carrying her guitar and singing Jewel.  GOOD LUCK!!!!  You've got my support!

I can't say that I know Crystal, But what I do know is the Young Lady has more than what I can say for most, She has Talent and it comes from nothing more than the Deepest soul within her. She is a natural!! She sings from the heart, Reguardless of what anyone thinks, says or does, She has my purest respect and support. Crystal I wish you all the best in the world and I hope you carry on no matter what........ Keep it real and true!!
