First off, I think Crystal Bowersox should have won against Lee. She’s a better singer no contest. The problem with her is she’s not in a decade she could have been REALLY big in. She’s so natural and organic with a Janis Joplin voice and vibe.
The 90s carried the 70s spirit and it was the decade Crystal would have flourished in. Today’s music is not about singer/songwriter types and is about over production. Crystal would have done great with music like Alanis Morrisette, Jewel and Sarah McLachlan. Which is why in the finale they had her singing with Alanis Morrisette and why they had her sing Black Velvet and why she was smacking awesome. That’s the type of music she should be during. Unfortunately that’s not the type of music that’s in. Fashion wise we’re headed back to the 90s, but pop music wise we’re currently in the 80s with the emphasis on computerized sound. And sad thing is if she was actually in the 90s she probably wouldn’t have made it because there was no American Idol. Maybe if she went back to the 70s she would have been ok. Well she’s got a record deal. Let’s see how she does.
What do you think? That she would have been bigger in the 90s? Think we’re go back to that sound anytime soon?
