Crystal Bowersox – What’s hiding in those nappy dreadlocks of hers? The answer is a load of talent. Read more below.

Although Crystal Bowersox doesn’t have the typical ‘Idol’ look, that shouldn’t stop her from dominating the 9th season of the hit Fox show. At this very moment, as I type these words of appreciation, I’m listening to the Joplin-esque singer do her thing, and wow (!), this is music that you can really vibe to. If you don’t believe me check her out for yourself via the YouTube video provided below.

All four judges – Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Ellen Degeneres, and Kara Dioguardi – dug her vocal ability, and it seemed like they appreciated her unique look too. Another person who is rooting for Bowersox is her friend and fellow musician Alex Pytko. He explained to that he thinks his friend will fair well in the competition, saying:

“I think she’s really going to surprise people on American Idol because she has this amazing natural talent and people can really relate to her.”

I agree…

As a biography: This Ohio native is no stranger to performing, and has been touring around the country playing tiny venues for sometime before finally auditioning for the world’s biggest singing competition. A couple of her many passions are tattoos and photography, and when she combines the two… She has a young son, and her musical influences reportedly include Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Etheridge, and Sista Otis… I guessed most of her influences within the first minute of hearing her sing. They truly come through in her music, and that is a good thing, no, a great thing.

Please find pictures and a video below.
