We don't know what's going on over there at the American Idol studios, but something is in the water!
First there was Ryan Seacrest's bizarre meltdown during this week's live show and now there are reports that Crystal Bowersox has been threatening to leave.
Sources say that the popular front-runner (and perhaps one of the only contestants who actually deserves to be there) has become completely overwhelmed with the show's hectic schedule and strenuous demands.
Even Ryan Seacrest confirmed that he just recently found an emotional and homesick Crystal having a breakdown in the parking lot after she asked to quit the show and go back home to her family in Ohio.
Luckily, the pint-sized host was there to talk her down from the ledge. He told the hippie songstress:
"The greatest thing I ever did was make enough money so I could buy my mom a house. You can buy your mom a house."
Apparently that was what she needed to hear because last we checked, she was still a member of the remaining seven contestants.
We're glad she's still in the competition!
