Last Season’s ‘American Idol’ Runner-Up, Crystal Bowersox, on Track to Outsell the Show’s Winner in Album Sales

Dec 17, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The runner-up in last season’s "American Idol," Crystal Bowersox, is on track to outsell the season’s champ, Lee DeWyze, in first-week album sales, the New York Post reports.

Bowersox’s first album, "Farmer’s Daughter," sold as many as 50,000 copies in its first day, more than the opening day sales of DeWyze’s "Live It Up," which sold 39,000 copies on its debut day earlier this year, the story notes.

If sales projections hold up, it’s likely that Bowersox’s album will surpass the sales of DeWyze’s.

The article points out that it’s not the first time a runner-up on "Idol" has beaten the program’s winner in album sales: Both Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert outsold albums from the winners of their respective seasons of "Idol" (those were Ruben Studdard in 2003 and Kris Allen in 2009).
