Crystal Bowersox signs a record deal with 19 Recordings/Jive Records'American Idol's' Crystal Bowersox has found a new home: According to E! Online, the season 9 runner-up has signed with 19 Recordings/Jive Records, a company that already includes such former contestants as Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, David Cook, Jordin Sparks, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.

The album, which is expected to hit shelves later this year, will be Bowersox's major-label debut.

Bowersox kept a fairly consistent voice on the show, showing her folk and classic rock influences. Her go-to cover song was the Janis Joplin version of 'Me and Bobby McGee.'
On her Facebook and 'American Idol' sites, Bowersox lists Glen Hansard, Jewel, Tracy Chapman, Melisa Etheridge and Joplin as influences. She performed Hansard's 'Falling Slowly,' Etheridge's 'Come to my Window' and Tracy Chapman's 'Give Me One Reason' on 'American Idol,' among other songs.

The inevitable 'American Idol' tour begins July 1 in Auburn Hills, MI.

The show is also preparing for its 10th season, starting a six-city tour for auditions in Nashville, on July 17. Auditions will also be held in Milwaukee, New Orleans, East Rutherford, Austin and San Francisco.

Lately, the audience seems to be voting for who is cute, not who is talented. The last time they got it right was with David Cook! It's time to vote for "most talented" again and not cutest (Lee), most upstanding (the guy who beat Adam...see, can't even remember his name), or best gimmick (Taylor) and vote for the real talent. I have been pacifying myself by telling myself that Daughtry, Adam and Crystal will definitely come out ahead of the bland winners of their respective years.

Gus, you're an embarrassment to me as a fellow human. I'm sorry you're so unhappy with yourself and your life that you can't feel joy for or share happiness with another. You might want to spend your time working on improving yourself and your attitude instead of criticizing and hurting others. And, remember....Losers never win.

even though she didn't win, I knew she would be the one who would most likely sign a recording contract first and probably be more successful than the guy who won. Look at Daughtry and look at Taylor

I won't even give that idiot the time of day to comment on that horrible post - I have more important things to say. Crystal - YOU GO GIRL! The only reason I watched Idol this time around, was because I really enjoyed your singing. It's been a long time since we had music like yours. I'm sure your little one is proud of you so keep up the good work! Looking forward to purchasing your first CD!

If you think Janis Joplin sucks...how come Stevie Nicks, Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Robert Plant, etc. name her as a super powerhouse. Janis could sing pretty like Peggy Lee, but said she'd rather not sing than sing queitly, so maybe you don't get this at all...just a hater, but back off Janis Joplin, man.

I can't help thinking she will aquire a larger audience if she gets a professional to give her a complete makeover. Including porcelaine veneers and a hairstyle that does away with those horrible dreadlocks! There is a decent looking girl under that nasty hair......somewhere!

You are dead on the head , Gus. She is revolting, both in looks and whatever sound that is coming out of her mouth.

You are implying that only you know anything, and that isn't true. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, haters of this ugly screamer just happen to have the right opinion!

Those that can't do teach, and those too dumb to even teach just spew garbage out their mouth. Gus does this remind you of anyone? Go get a job hauling garbage and keep your nasty mouth shut.

She does need to get those gross dreadlocks OUT of her hair and wash it!! I cant stand when people lower themselves, make themselves look like trash with that dirty scuzy looking hair!! Its hard to appreciate anyones talent when you cant take your eyes off of their skanky, dirty looking hair! had to do that last year.. or was it the year before with Jasons skanky hair!! However, he had NO TALENT AT ALL!!! LOL
Crystals got it, she just needs to clean up her hair, I think then she'll have alot more fans...
