Crystal Bowersox "Up To The Mountain"

Topics: Entertainment

Just in case you missed "Mamasox's" final performance on American Idol, on Simon Cosell's last night, take the time to enjoy real talent.

Incredibly, she came in second. However, there's absolutely no doubt as to who really won. This young lady is going places.

Compare her here:

... to the great Janis Joplin:

Joplin's obviously more powerful (and likely on drugs) - and has a voice that caries double harmonies - multiple octaves, but single mom Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox is probably as close to Joplin as we'll ever see.

For something entirely different:
Ofra Haza - The Greatest Israeli Singer That Ever Lived (and who, like Joplin, has a voice that rings out in double harmonies and multiple octaves)
Ofra Haza - My Soul (Kol Haneshama)
I Really Dig Alanis Morissette (Alanis, Janis Joplin, and Yma Sumac)
