Bowersox felt Betrayed by Seacrest
American Idol season 9 front-runner Crystal Bowersox said that she didn’t expect that host Ryan Seacrest would reveal the incident about the moment that she went to the parking lot for missing her son.
In a text message to Katelyn Epperly, a fellow season 9 contender who was voted out during the top 16 competition, the dreadlocked singer said, “Oh, yes, I’m fine. Betrayed by Seacrest.” Epperly texted her first asking if she was OK after she learned about the story.
The story was that after a performance more than two weeks ago, Bowersox left the stage and had wanted to quit, apparently due to pressure and for missing her toddler son. Seacrest followed her in the parking lot to talk to her and was able to convince her to stay.
Access Hollywood reported that the contestant tweeted via the official Idol page during the weekend that not everything that was told to the media should be believed – including that of quitting Idol and being saved by Seacrest.
