Last night, the guys took to the American Idol stage instead of the ladies, who were scheduled to perform, but were pushed back to tonight after one of the girls got sick.
Details are emerging from one of the producers of the show about the girl's condition and her future with the show. The producer explained that semifinalist Crystal Bowersox was rushed to the hospital early yesterday morning with suffering from a previous condition the show was aware, but had gotten worse. The producer still would not go into detail about what was wrong with Crystal, but he explained that it was serious enough to keep her in the hospital for 24 hours.
As for her future for the show, only time will tell, but as of this morning, there was no news from the hospital about her condition. If she cannot perform tonight, there is a very good possibility that she will be eliminated.
Poor thing! To come this far and to watch it slip away so quickly. That really sucks.
