American Idol Dreads


Crystal Bowersox can sing and she rocks her dreads to boot.

American Idol Season 9 contestant Chrystal Bowersox has her own style which she does not seem to want to alter. Her voice is soulful. She is the type of person you would expect to see wearing dreads.

In a previous post, I wondered aloud was it cool for ther ethnicities to wear dreads other than African Americans. People have strong feelings against people who are not black wearing the hairstyle. I on the other hand think hair is a personal choice that cannot be dictated.

I find her dreads as interesting as she is. I do not believe the ordinary or run-of-the-mill type person can or would even choose to wear dreads. Crystal is my pick to win for this season.

Good luck Crystal.


Bowersox was born in Elliston, Ohio. She is a single mother and has a son. She also has a fraternal twin brother. During her days as a struggling musician, she played as a busker at several train stations.


Bowersox auditioned for American Idol in Chicago, Illinois. She sang "Piece of My Heart". Ellen DeGeneres commented that she had "raw natural talent" and Simon Cowell continues to compliment her voice every week.

On March 2, Bowersox was hospitalized because of an unconfirmed illness, forcing a last minute switch in scheduling to give her extra time to recuperate. The men competed that day instead of the women. She sang the next day and impressed all of the judges. The illness was later reported as a problem with diabetes.

The following week, her strong performance prompted Simon Cowell to state, "Right now, you are the one everyone has to beat".

Her performances are usually accompanied by her guitar except for her rendition of "Midnight Train to Georgia" in which she played the piano.
