Top Three American Idol Contestants Face Judgement Of Home Town Friends, Family

May 18th, 2010 – Written By Bonnie

American Idol contestants got some sweet home loving this past week as they each returned to their home towns and spent much needed time with family and friends. The journey on which American Idol contestants are taken are often far from anything the contestants have seen, and much more than they ever dreamed possible. Being a contestant on American Idol not only gives a chance at a quick rise to fame, but it also helps the performers find their way as an artist and not lose them self along the way.

The trips home for the contestants were very emotional, to say the least. Each contestant was overcome with joy to see the out pour of love coming from family, friends, and their communities as a whole. The whole American Idol experience can be overwhelming, but for those contestants that are living out their dream, the hard work is just a small price to pay for all the good things that are yet to come.

The three top contestants of season 9 of American Idol are seeing first hand just what it feels like to be a rising star. Lee DeWyze made his first home town appearance at Arlington Par, where more than 40,000 cheering fans jammed out to his ten song set. He also got his chance to be part of the Cubs team, as he threw the first pitch out at a Cubs game. Like we have seen during previous home town visits, Lee DeWyze was honored with a parade in his home town of Mount Prospect.

Crystal received the same star treatment in her home town of Elliston, Ohio. It was obvious that she was overcome with emotions when seeing all the support she was getting from friends, family, and total strangers. She told the local paper, “It’s really beyond words.”

When it rains, it pours, or at least that is what it did for Casey James during his home town visit to Fort Worth, Texas. The gloomy weather cut his performance at the Stockyards short, but he was plenty busy signing autographs, doing interviews, and making public appearances.

The home town visits will air on Tuesday night, during the elimination round. This is a very big week for contestants as they finally learn their fate on season 9 of American Idol. Tonight the contestants get to show the judges and America exactly what kind of performer they can be. For the first time this season, contestants are not required to follow a theme and can choose what ever song they would like to perform.

Entertainment betting lines are still favoring Crystal Bowersox to take home the title of Next American Idol Super Star, but at this point in the competition, the slightest slip up in a performance can change the game completely.

Casey James       9/1
Crystal Bowersox 20/33
Lee Dewyze     7/5
