Crystal Bowersox vs. Janell Wheeler: Semifinalist Showdown!

by at . Comments

Do you sense a theme early on season nine of American Idol?

The show is highlighting young women on guitars, possibly aiming to find the next Taylor Swift. Not exactly a misguided strategy.

Two of the female contestants that have advanced to the semifinals and made a strong impression on viewers are Crystal Bowersox and Janell Wheeler. The former can seriously rock a harmonica, while the latter was admittedly a bundle of nerves in Hollywood, but got the green light from all four judges anyway.

Consider the futures of these aspiring stars and vote below...

Has anyone else noticed that they look EXACTLY THE SAME (sans the hair)?

Bowersox is easily the better of the 2. She is pretty great actually, but I fear that she may be a one trick pony. This is American Idol, not the American awards. Roots rock will not get you through the whole competition. Its going to take someone who has great vocal range, control, and versatility to win it. Im TEAM LACEY for just that reason. Lacey Brown doesn't play guitar, but she has the best female vocals for this season hands down.

I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER TAYLOR SWIFT, HAD ENOUGH OF THAT. I LIKE CRYSTAL BEST AND WILL BE ROOTING FOR HER. I WANT TO SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT, SOME DIVERSITY. SHE PLAYS GUITAR AND HARMONICA AND I HOPING SHE CAN WRITE. I THINK CRYSTAL; COULD TURN THE WHOLE MUSIC BUSINESS UPSIDE DOWN.

They are both amazing and sing far better than Taylor Swift! Janell is also much prettier and sexier than Taylor! I think Crystal has better voice than Janell but Janell is much more commercial! I would also put Didi in to this group,she is gorgeous good singer! My top 3 guys are Andrew,Casey and Aaron but girls are much better this season-Janell,Crystal,Didi,Lilly,Kati.....

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
