We know that it can be stressful to be an American Idol contestant, but apparently it all became too much recently for Crystal Bowersox. According to Ryan Seacrest, two weeks ago she was literally in the Idol parking lot ready to leave the show and head back home. Any ideas who turned out to be the knight in shining armor that convinced Crystal to stay? None other than Ryan Seacrest himself! Evidently Crystal confided to Ryan in a heart-to-heart that she couldn't handle the pressure and that all she really wanted to do was go back to Ohio to be with her family. He convinced her to stick around by reminding her that if she won, she would become instantly rich and famous overnight. Seacrest claims that he convinced her by saying 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." Hmmm. Needless to say, the Seacrest/Bowersox heart-to-heart must have worked because she's still around and competing. Granted, she is one of the best singers this year, but I'm just having a difficult time liking her.
... Anybody else think he should have let her walk?
