Big Mike's backstage cam is awkward. With about an hour left, Crystal Bowersox takes the stage. She's a little sick tonight. Her Ohio town put her name on its sign. The kids all love her and call her Mama Sox.
She's singing "Come Together." Carly Smithson sang this in season 7.
Ahh. Classic Bowersox. She takes the stage with a guitar while accompanied by a guy playing a didgeridoo. She delivers nice, solid vocals and infuses personality into the song without straying too far from its original melody. The gritty tone is awesome. I'm impressed.
Randy: "Another solid performance...It definitely worked."
Ellen: "The only thing I have to worry about is a new way to tell you how great you are."
Kara: "It was slinky, it was sexy, it was playful."
Simon: Says he could hear that performance on the radio. He also wants to learn more about the didgeridoo. So Ernie the didgeridoo player comes on stage. He's cute.
