Today In ‘Idol’: Watch Crystal Bowersox As A 13-Year Old Jewel-A-Like

:: Casey James says he’s perfectly fine landing third place, and that if/when he records an album, it will be (surprise!) country/blues/rock. Really? We thought he was definitely going to go polka. [People]

:: Did Casey throw the competition? Were the producers gunning for a Lee/Crystal showdown all along? Is Hanson performing with Siobhan Magnus during the finale? Find out if these rumors are fact or fiction. [Idol Tracker]

:: Crystal won the coin toss, and chose to sing second during the Top 2 performance night. Smart cookie, since her inevitably amazing performance will be the most fresh in voters’ minds. [Idol Chatter]

:: After the jump, check out an incredible performance from a bleached-blonde, dread-less, 13-year old Crystal Bowersox, who sounds almost exactly like she could be Jewel’s little sister (not to be confused with Jewel’s song “Little Sister”). [via EW]

Incredible. Are you guys as impressed as we are, or are you still Team DeWyze? Let’s level the playing field a tiny bit by highlighting Lee’s acoustic cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody” during his homecoming show.

    Lee doesn’t sound terrible-he sounds great.Lee can sing all different types of music.Crystal sings one type.When asked to sing Elvis,or a different genre outside of her comfort zone-she didn’t do so well.Lee proved his versatility.She is a good singer but don’t knock him or count him out-and I am not a teeny bopper-he has diverse fans as well but I’m sure he’ll take all the teenagers votes he can get.Every vote counts
