Will the Crystal Bowersox hospital stay prevent her from performing on American Idol? The fabulous performer was put in the hospital after an apparent problem with diabetes-or so says the American Idol rumor mill. Fans of American Idol are certainly asking is Crystal Bowersox okay after the Tuesday episode. There wasn’t a whole lot of information available last night for viewers and there still isn’t much circulating on the internet despite the popularity of the show.
The entire night of female performances was shifted to Tuesday instead of the scheduled Wednesday night performance. Since Crystal Bowersox was on the bench–or in the hospital–the guys went first and things appear to be on track for working out in Crystal Bowersox’s favor.
It was a good gesture by the male contestants and American Idol to shift practically everything to accommodate the Crystal Bowersox hospital stay. Crystal Bowersox, if you remember right, was the girl who confessed that she wasn’t really a big American Idol fan. She doesn’t exactly fit the mold to be the American Idol winner since it’s based on a popularity contest. She’s the girl who can play the guitar and harmonica at the same time and bang out some terrific vocals in addition.
The big question now is whether this Crystal Bowersox hospital stay will keep her from performing on the Wednesday episode? If Crystal Bowersox were a pro athlete, she would certainly be listed as questionable. Performing at a high level, especially singing, can’t be easy if your health is in question. I think there is every indication that Crystal Bowersox will compete in triumphing fashion on the Wednesday American Idol show. Will it be the level of performance that she has received rave reviews for so far? It’s hard to tell considering we don’t have much information on what exactly happened. A few internet sources are pointing to diabetes as the culprit for Crystal Bowersox ending up in the hospital.
It would certainly be a shame to see her stint on American Idol end because of an unfortunate episode with that disease. Hopefully Crystal Bowersox is out of the hospital and doctors have given her the thumbs up to perform tonight. If she doesn’t perform, would American Idol automatically have to send her home? It’s apparent from some of the American Idol rumors I’ve read that Crystal Bowersox would most likely be eliminated if she doesn’t perform. How could you vote on her performance if she isn’t there? The audience votes on an individual performance week after week and not the overall body of work. At least that’s the way it is supposed to work out.
Fair or not, those seem to be the American Idol rules.
Hopefully she’ll have the strength to take the stage on American Idol once again and prove she belongs with the top three or four like she had established early on in the competition. I would almost guarantee she’ll get another chance regardless of her performance if she does take the stage and doesn’t make it through. Voters will probably push her to the top of the week for overcoming severe personal issues. It’s a great drama unfolding on live television tonight and I personally can’t wait to see her performance–and the round of applause she will deserve afterwards.
