Crystal Bowersox Rocks Idolator’s Pray For Pop Party At SXSW

Mar 21st, 2011 // 4 Comments

At this point, no one needs to refer to Crystal Bowersox as American Idol Season 9 runner-up any longer. She’s become a recognizable artist unto her own, and the 25-year-old singer-songwriter proved it when she offered up an impressive acoustic set at our Pray For Pop showcase at the annual South By Southwest music festival in Austin, TX (while husband Brian Walker, a fellow musician, stood proudly front and center in the audience). Mama Sox belted out stripped-down renditions of songs from her debut LP Farmer’s Daugher, which you can watch in our exclusive videos after the jump!

“Finally Got It Right”

Mine All Mine”

“Kiss Ya”

On stage, Crystal was an elegant pop force with her guitar. But backstage she was quite the “badass,” as you can see in these behind-the-scenes photos shot by our friends at PureVolume. And don’t forget to check out Eliza Doolittle’s performance, as well as all the artists who performed at our Pray For Pop party in this gallery.


  1. Crystal never disappoints shes the real (if unofficial) winner of the last season

    ALSO I am not a fan of this new comment rating system and its ability to hide comments with a mere 7 undeserved dislikes seriously its just flawed, this should be changed.

  2. Anonii

    Awww. I liked the comment rating system. If I didn’t have time to write a comment or just didn’t know what to say I can always agree or disagree with what somebody else said.

    Oh and yeah, Crystal is totally the real yet unofficial winner of Idol Season 9. Still in shock of the Lee won. Never liked him and still don’t.
