'American Idol' -- Nerves Frayed During Rehearsal

5/25/2010 8:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Our spies at the "American Idol" rehearsal today say Crystal Bowersox was so nervous she forgot the words to the song she'll release if she wins tomorrow night.  And Lee DeWyze got ticked off after he got hit with a violin bow.

'American Idol
Both Crystal and Lee will each sing 3 songs.  The first song is their choice, the second was chosen by Simon Fuller and the third song is the one that will be released by the winner.

Crystal chose "Me and Bobby McGee" for her first song.  Fuller had her sing "Black Velvet."  As for the song she'll release ... it's called "Up to the Mountain." Crystal stopped dead in her tracks in the middle of the song and started over.

As for Lee, he chose, "The Boxer," and Fuller selected "Everybody Hurts." As for the song he'll release if he wins ... it's called, "Beautiful Day." 

As Lee finished "Beautiful Day," a violinist accidentally hit him in the body with his bow.  Lee was upset and walked off the stage .... even before the pretend judges could weigh in.

Should be interesting.

"I hate this show. Overnight "stars". Even the Beatles, Elvis and rhe Jackson 5ive had to play small clubs before they hit it big. You have to pay the dues and these "CHILDREN" are not learning the value of hard work, dedication and HARD WORK. That being said, I can undersrand the girl getting nervous and forgetting the lyrics BUT there is no way that little BOY should be starting out thinking he is the next S T A R."



You don't know what you're talking about as far as Crystal is concerned.

She doesn't know what she's talking about at all. Someone like David Cook played in different bands and played in many, many small clubs before he went on American Idol. He wrote his own music too. A lot of the contestants have the same kind of experience.

Dreadlocks are so gross.



Oh and I agree with post #3, American Idol is a TOTAL waste of time. The people who win rarely ever reach stardom anymore.

I don't watch this show, but I've seen enough pictures to say that the girl should either wash or cut off those ugly dreadlocks and go see a dentist! Ugh! Hope the guy wins - then I'll only have to see HIS face (mostly).
