Lee Dewyze quietly shows support for Crystal on American Idol

Wonder what the blue band bracelets on some of this seasons American Idol contestants stand for? Hope Paige Designs sent Crystal Bowersox a dozen of their popular “DIABETES SUCKS” blue rubber bracelets after her stay in the hospital to give her a lift. She obviously passed them out to fellow contestants as the “DIABETES SUCKS” bracelets can be seen on the wrists of various idol contestants in support of Bowersox. Former contestant Tim Urban wore one in previous weeks while finalist Lee Dewyze wore one on Wednesday May 12, 2010.

Ifelicious top 3 picks for American Idol Season 9

I’ve been meaning to post my top 3/final 3 (however you want to call the last 3 standing in the competition) American Idol Season 9 picks for a few weeks now. They haven’t really changed, however. My personal favorite is Crystal Bowersox representing Ohio where I currently reside. There’s something pure and raw and confident about her that won me over from the beginning. Lee DeWyze is a close second having won me over and an underdog in the competition who just keeps getting better each week. When I got my 3rd pick, my choice was not as clear.
