She isnt herself, she pretend somebody that isnt her, so why she said "i never would do thing that i dont be" and then she sing songs where she is uncomfortable.

man...she's no ordinary mama!!! awsmazing!!! it was a fun song and she did it perfectly great, but i don't think that this is pne of her best rocking-sox performances. maybe it's because she's sick or the song's just not her vibe or somethin, i don't know. my fav-favorites from her so far are
give me one reason
me and bobby mcgee
midnight train to georgia
i'd kill to listen to her doin tracy chapman give me one reason in a studio version!!! i've got her me and bobby mcgee and midnight train to georgia in the recordin studio and they are the best. cuz honestly, i didn't know those kinda-old songs till she did it perfectly!!! mamasox's rockin the house baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mindy 28 you apparently don't know the difference between confidence and arrogance. wonder what category you fall into? would rather guess the latter.

Lola

What are you TALKING about?!?! Where are you seeing this "arrogance" in Mike and Crystal? I dont get it?!?! I wan't examples of what the heckle you people are talking about because right now I think ya'll are blowing hot air. I DON'T SEE IT!

To borrow from Simon I thought she was a tad screechy. Would've liked to hear her bring her voice down a bit more (like she did on the last note). That said, she's still authentic, awesome and should win Idol 9, imo!!!

PS. my guess, if I have to decifer it, is that Adelia is saying 'Why is a white girl singing a gospel song?' Elvis was one of the first to do it, and it changed the face of rock n roll. Yah baby!

Same boring nasal. whinning voice just like Shioban. Both voice are so annoying!! Can't believe they are still on the show!!!!!! I turn my channel when they are on!!!!

I liked it but I wasn't knocked over by her tonight. It was solid, perhaps a bit too short (curses Idol). Not my favorite from her but she showed she can handle up tempo. Nice choice of song rather than an Elvis tune everyone knows. Well done.

ohh no, pondan and i are from the same land and i'm ashamed to admit that. an example of malaysian who grew up to be a complete waste of sperm.

on a slightly separate note, "pondan" means transvestite in the native language called "Malay".

by the way, mamasox rocks my socks! i love all her performances.

Talented singers are a dime a dozen. Truly exceptional singer/songwriter/musicians are rare and deserve to be recognized for their multitude of gifts that they share with audiences and listeners. This DEFINES Crystal Bowersox and sets her apart from the others. Loved tonight's performance along with everything I've ever heard her do. She will win this, no doubt about it!

Pondan

If you have opinions on her performance that's fine, everyone has them. But to go criticizing her looks that way?! Wow, you must be and incredibly UGLY person on the INSIDE. How awful of you to say such things. I bet you're picture perfect right?

Don McLean, Rock-N-Roll isn't dead, music is alive, Crystal resurrected it. After Crystal sang, Elvis Left the building.......

That was a terrific performance! Crystal is the real deal. She showed that tonight in spades. She's so comfortable just kicking ass on a great song.

huuy i dont like her

AI9champion
AI9champion

nothing really special in her. just solid but not powerful. If she win, she's like and old woman trying to sell records. She will be like Fantasia.
Simon is not really rooting for her. He wanted that AI will have a loser winner
so his next project X Factor can outshine American Idol.

Btw, Simon, you should have left earlier. You do no good in the show. You're technique is obvious. Crystal will end up like Archuleta and Lambert because of pure positive comments from Simon.

Adelia

But she said that she never will do something that did not want .. but the songs that she sings it is not what she is, is because of it that she contradise because this one singing songs that are not of her kind(genre), of her way of being

Ginny

adelia 9 again just what is that you r trying to say????

Lola

This whole competition is nothing but covers. How can you fault her for not singing things of her own? She takes those songs and turns them into her own style. And for that she should be COMMENDED, not faulted.

Jobe

Tom, I'm with you on this one. Adelia...What?

Do you speak english? I can hardly understand what you are saying. That being said, what you do write makes no sense.

Crystal is good, but this week was nothing special.

I don't know when Crystal will hear anything negative from the judges, but it seems clear that most of you are not seeing any "moments" from her lately. I think Crystal's soulful "whine" sound has gotten as old as Siobhan's "scream". Let's hear something truly different, where she actually leaves her comfort zone.

hello

I think that was her best vocal performance of the season. that was great.

Adelia

I dont like her... she isnt honest with herself... she said
"I always I am I itself " but it isnt, she isnt herself when she sing, and for this i dont like her

ginny

adelia 6 what????? what planet are you on

Spriggzoid

She is totally immersed in the song, delivering an awesome performance with a lot of power and making it look easy. Looks easy because she is absolutely honest about herself in the music. It's interesting that you don't see that. I'm guessing you're among a tiny minority. Maybe consider what the other commenters say, go back and watch it again and see what you think.

lin

don't get your comment. you know her or something? how can you say she's not herself? she's been consistently approaching her music the same way and her youtube songs are the same as well. makes no sense....

It felt so short I wanted to hear more and more from her. I'm a big fan I would like to see something different like what she did on midnight train to Georgia. Love her!

@MASH: Listen to Crystal's original song Finally got it right in YouTube. It's my favourite and it's sung with that "sweet voice".

MASH

I HATE the influence of country music in other genres because it allows poor singers to get away with nasal, twangy vocals. Crystal allowed far too much of this country sounding **** into her singing tonight which IMHO, made it her only poor performance to date.

She has already proven with Midnight Train and Candle in the Window that she has a lovely voice, but failed to use it.

Bonny Raitt has done many songs like this, but has always striven to keep her voice pure, even when the lyrics got raunchy.

Noone ever tires of a sweet voice, but if Crystal doesn’t make more of an effort to sing sweetly, I’m afraid that many fans (myself included) will tire of Crystal before she wins this thing.
