Crystal Bowersox Almost Quit American Idol
Crystal Bowersox is reported to have wanted to quit the competition about a couple of weeks ago but was persuaded by host Ryan Seacrest to stay.
After a show, the 24-year old mother from Elliston, Ohio left immediately after threatening with a tantrum. It was believed that she thinks that the show is too much emotional drain for her and that she is having problems with all the attention. She was also missing her young son.
Seacrest talked to her in the parking lot telling her that “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.”
Bowersox reconsidered and posted a message in the American Idol Facebook account: “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.”
During the top 20 performance, she almost wasn’t able to sing as she was rushed to the hospital due to an undisclosed illness. Later she confirmed that she was dealing with some personal issues.
