'American Idol' - 'Top 10 Girls Perform' Recap Season 9, Episode 17

We start the show off with an update on Crystal Bowersox: still no word on what landed her in the hospital yesterday, but she's back and ready to sing. We then transition into an awkward joke from Ellen about her dead grandmother, and even more awkward pseudo-flirting between Kara and Simon. It's gonna be that kind of night, I guess.

In general, the girls show a marked improvement from last week, and there are really very few horrific performances, so that's definitely a step up. I was getting a little worried about this competition, but after tonight, I feel a lot better about the whole thing.

Crystal Bowersox is singing Credence Clearwater Revival, which seems to be more up her alley than Alanis. I really have no idea how Simon is going to react at any given point this season, but as far as I'm concerned, she killed it. Crystal is ridiculously talented, unique, and compelling to watch, which is not something I can say of very many of the girls this year. Randy and Ellen absolutely fawn over her. Kara gets the song that Crystal sang last week wrong, but likes her, and Simon makes up a new word: "misunderestimated." However, he basically says that he was wrong about her and continues to heap well-deserved praise upon her.
