American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox still feels like she won.
"I feel like I've won because Lee [DeWyze] won, and I have such respect for him as an artist and a human being," Bowersox said backstage after the finale. "Both of us are going to have very successful careers and we're going to be friends for a long time."
Bowersox, 24, said she wasn't surprised DeWyze was crowned Idol's ninth winner. "I knew Lee was going to win and people seemed to be surprised by that, but I just had a feeling," Bowersox said. "I couldn't be happier for Lee. It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy."
"I said before the show [he would win]," Bowersox continued. "I just had this strange sense of peace and calm. I've been that way through the whole season if you hadn't noticed. I'm just mellow and I was willing and ready and happy for whatever the outcome was."
