We couldn't agree with the judges of 'American Idol' more; there's something about contestant Crystal Bowersox that just screams originality. Bowersox gave an earthy performance of Alanis Morissette's 'Hand in My Pocket' while playing guitar and harmonica simultaneously.

"I love your originality as an artist ... I just love the honesty. I'm not even sure this was the right song for you, but this is one of the times for me it doesn't matter what the song is. I like you. I just like what you do," Randy Jackson said.

However, both Simon Cowell and Kara DioGuardi wanted Bowersox to deliver even more. "There are thousands of you doing this outside subway stations everyday at the moment," Cowell said, adding that he likes Bowersox as a performer, but that her rendition of the song came too close to the original.

"You were good tonight. I think you have greatness in you, though," DioGuardi said. "You have that ability to kind of take us on a journey when you're singing. I didn't see it as much tonight, but you have it in you."
