Can’t get enough of “American Idol’s” Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze?

Fans will be able to buy the music of the Top 10 of season nine on May 11. “American Idol: Season 9” CD includes Bowersox’s rendition of Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee,” and Dewyze’s version of “Treat Her Like a Lady.”

The album also includes Aaron Kelly’s cover of Aerosmith’s classic “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing,” Casey James performance of “Jealous Guy,” Didi Benami singing “Play with Fire,” Siobhan Magnus’ version of “Paint It Black” and Katie Stevens’ version of “Let It Be.”

There are also a trio of acoustic performances – Michael Lynch singing India Arie’s “Ready For Love,” Andrew Garcia’s performance of Chris Brown’s “Forever” and Tim Urban’s version of The Rolling Stone classic “Under My Thumb.”

    The money made from the CD will be eaten up soon. My IReport has been sent from me in the future back in time for posting to Twitter, Facebook to the CNN and HLN websites.

    It reads in part "Chicago American Idol Star booted off in the last show commits suicide. When found, the body had fallen 14 stories to the pavement below landing on top of a local television news crew's truck who at the time was working for Larry King Live. The victim used razor blades to "bleed herself fast", she also shot herself in each of her arms, legs and three shots to the head, two of which blew off her ears Just as she lept off the Chicago Tribune Building, she was heard shouting "American idol Judges (Explicitives verbiage) and they can shove (explicitive) up their (explicitive)! What is really sas is that even though she made it to the number two slot, and lost out to Harry Minguelworth and his horse "Ed" who farted the melody's to his songs (gas mask sales rose tremendously near the CNN Headquarters in Atlanta, (more on the next IReport from me later on), Georgia in the United States. This American Idol Star gone bad left a 399 pages, single spaced, 8 pice courrier font letter addressed to Larry King in care of Willie Nelson. Sources who wish to remain anonomous at this time stated that Willie Nelson read the note (using 7 joints from start to finish) who then called Larry King and asked how much CNN was willing to pay for this suicide note. When Larry King responded, Willie Nelson was taken aback, until he remembered, he wanted a figure or in this case, a nmber which represents the ounces of Columbian Gold that CNN woul give him for the letter, not the number in dollar bills, It is of course, with sad regret that an IReporter such as myself, having the technology to go into the future then back, has to actually report on something as tragic as this, but such is the life of us IReporters assisting CNN with their reporting.

    My next IReport will be on the final vote tally in the 2012 Presedential election. Wow, that sure was a good election, really sorry to report on who actuall won, opps, sorry, meant "who actually will win". The winner is of course, none other than Mr. Willie Nelson, and Mr. Nelson stated his first act in office was to inact a Presidential Executive Order changing the laws regarding marijuana possession. His remarks to this IReporter on January 17, 2013 (Yes, we actuall do as a planet make it past December 12, 2012. We finally figured out that the Myans just ran out of wall space to continue their calendar), that it would be illegal for anyone over the age of 50 not to have in their possession at lease one unused marijuana joint.

    So, from the future and the present, this IReporter says "Oh well, can't win em all huh".

    I would buy a whole album of Crystal Bowersox songs, but not wasting my money on a CD with music I mostly couldn't tolerate the first time I heard it.

    some people out there cannot stand to see others make it. it is there purpose to make others life miserable because they arent secure enough with themselves. does it make you feel good to put down others' talent/skills/abilities when you yourself are clearly lacking?

    that isnt real...
    but dont get all worked up. perhaps i wasnt talking about you, but if you felt i was, you may be guilty.

    Of all the Tim Urban songs... why that one... They should his song from this week or last week. And why not one of Didi's Fleetwood Mac songs...

    Seriously? UGH! Who would actually buy this years' CD? I can't imagine anyone even buying the AI tour tickets. This years singers are, if not outright awful, beyond boring.

    Song choice kinda bizarre considering the judges lambasted them for most of these performances. Not even their personal best "standout" performance for any of them. R we to believe these were the songs that got them their highest weeks votes? I doubt it. Curious how they arrive at song choices. Obviously w/pro tools in the studio something can be improved upon their live performance, but for many of these song choices it wasn't just their vocal that was bad.....more AI cluelessness this season.

    "Under My Thumb" seriously?! I was impressed with every song-track choice except for that one.
