Crystal Bowersox Just hours before Crystal Bowersox hit the stage for the 'American Idol' finale Wednesday, she and her boyfriend broke up. "[My boyfriend] Tony, he went home. He wasn't cool with the lifestyle," Bowersox told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Thursday, adding she was having a "hard morning."

"He's a small town guy and it's fine. But I'm a small town girl, but I want this. I want this more than anything -- this career, this lifestyle. I didn't think he was up for it. He didn't think he was up for it," she said, admitting the split was mutual.
