The Crystal Bowersox American Idol watch continues. The Ottawa County resident takes the stage sometime between 8 and 10 tonight on Idol, seen locally on WUPW-TV, Channel 36.
The theme for the show is R&B/ soul, with Usher serving as mentor to the contestants. Bowersox told the show's judges last week to expect something different from her.
‘‘I've got big plans for next week, if I'm still around,'' she said, later hinting that she also may be performing sans guitar for the first time on the show.
Viewers can vote for Bowersox or any of the nine other remaining Idol contestants immediately following tonight's broadcast. Idol will return at 9 p.m. Wednesday for the hour-long results show.
Blade pop culture editor Kirk Baird will post a blog about the night's performances at toledoblade.com after the show.
