So 2010 American Idol Top 3 are Crystal Bowersox, Casey James and Lee DeWyze.

Crystal Bowersox

Bowersox auditioned for American Idol in Chicago, Illinois. She sang «Piece of My Heart.» Shania Twain commented that she had «raw natural talent» and Simon Cowell continues to compliment her voice every week. On March 2, Bowersox was hospitalized because of an unconfirmed illness, forcing a last minute switch in scheduling to give her extra time to recuperate. The men competed that day instead of the women. She sang the next day and impressed all of the judges. The following week, her strong performance prompted Simon Cowell to state, «Right now, you are the one everyone has to beat.» After Siobhan Magnus’s departure from American Idol in the top 6, Bowersox is the only female contestant remaining in the Top 3. Alongside Lee DeWyze, Bowersox so far never landed on the Bottom 3 from the early part of the Finals.

Casey James

From Cool and with an origin from Fort Worth, Texas, James had a bad reaction to his pertussis  (whooping cough) vaccine when he was an infant, and his family feared brain damage. According to his mother, however, she realized that he would be all right and was going to be musical when he started humming before he talked. Following a serious motorcycle accident at the age of 21, James was told by doctors that he would no longer be able to play guitar, a medical prediction that proved untrue. In 2010, USA Today music critic Brian Mansfield suggested that James was «[a]rguably…the best guitar player the show has seen.» James had tried out for and been selected to compete on the ninth season of American Idol in 2009 in spite of the fact that he had never seen the show. James is the oldest contestant to be selected for the Top 24 of the ninth season at the age of 27.

Lee DeWyze

DeWyze auditioned in Chicago for the ninth season of American Idol with the song «Ain’t No Sunshine», which was also covered by Kris Allen. During Hollywood week, his group included Aaron Kelly and Crystal Bowersox, who all made it into the top 24 and subsequently the top 5.

During the first week, he performed «Chasing Cars» by Snow Patrol, which was praised by Simon Cowell. The next week he sang «Lips of an Angel», which was received quite well by all the judges, but they liked to see more confidence in himself, but good enough to get him into the top 16. His third song, «Fireflies», came as a surprise and was generally liked by the viewers, critics, and the judges.

After making it to the Top 12, DeWyze performed «Beast of Burden» during The Rolling Stones week. For the Top 11’s theme, Billboard #1 Hits, DeWyze performed «The Letter» by The Box Tops. The following week DeWyze performed «Treat Her Like a Lady» impressing mentor Usher and all four judges including Cowell who said that «This was the night your life may have changed forever.» His closest friends among the competitors were Siobhan Magnus and former roommate Andrew Garcia.

Alongside Crystal Bowersox, DeWyze so far never landed on the Bottom 3 from the early part of the Finals.
