The American Idol Season 9 Top 2 finalists performed three songs each â€“ the first was their favorite of the season, another song was chosen by Idolâ€™s creator Simon Fuller and the last was the winnerâ€™s song â€“ to vie for Americaâ€™s vote during the final live performances show on Tuesday (May 25). For the first time in Idol history, the winner will release a cover instead of a very cheesy original song created by Idol gods.
Crystal Bowersox delivered an intense performance of Patty Griffinâ€™s â€œUp To The Mountainâ€ (watch video below). That was incredible, beautiful, emotional performance. Crystal is fantastic. We know it. But I did not like the song choiceâ€¦ if this is going to be her first single, Iâ€™m not going to buy it. Ellen DeGeneres said that Crystal is in a league of her own right now, while Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell described her performance as â€œincredibleâ€, â€œamazingâ€ and â€œoutstandingâ€.
