Our American Idol: Crystal Bowersox 2 To

Toledo Free Press Special Sections Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

It’s been a whirlwind year for Elliston native Crystal Bowersox. From placing second on “American Idol,” recording her debut album, getting married and touring nationally, the singersongwriter has been busy. Bowersox told Toledo Free Press she’ll “definitely be nostalgic” come New Year’s Eve. “I finally get to see my friends again. The show, tour and recording took me away for almost a year,” Bowersox said in a phone interview. “It’s traumatic, it’s like a roller coaster — it picks you up and slams you back down into reality.” Bowersox said she’s looking forward to spending time with her family and friends, as well as playing with her bass guitarist Frankie May on a regular basis. This time last year Bowersox was gearing up for a New Year’s Eve show with May while waiting to leave for Los Angeles and “American Idol’s” Hollywood Week. “[The show] was right before L.A. and Hollywood Week. It was pretty crazy knowing I was in the process — since I auditioned for the “American Idol” in the fall — but I didn’t know what it was going to be like,” she said. “It was like waiting for this mythical creature to walk in the room.”

American Idol

Following Hollywood Week the 25-year-old received a unanimous vote from the four “American Idol” judges, advancing her to the Top 24, where American viewers could begin casting their votes. During that time, judge Simon Cowell told Bowersox she had a head start because she is “infectious” and people like her. “MamaSox,” as her friends and fans dubbed her, received critical reviews her first week in the Top 24, singing Alanis Morissette’s “Hand in my Pocket,” but still advanced. On March 2, Bowersox was hospitalized due to diabetes complications, and “American Idol” switched the men’s and women’s nights so she could still perform. Despite the hospitalization only 24 hours prior, Bowersox wowed the judges with a blues rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “As Long as I Can See the Light.” The song earned Bowersox enough votes to advance her to the Top 16 and she received high praise from Cowell. “Crystal, I completely underestimated you

Bowersox’s consistent performance led to praise in national publications, such as USA Today and Billboard Magazine. Some media outlets were predicting Bowersox would win Season 9. Bowersox made it to the Top 3 contestants on the show and returned to Northwest Ohio on May 14. Bowersox made radio visits, appeared at a local AT&T store, participated in Cr ystal BOWER a parade, sang the national anthem at SO on marriage, fa X a Mud Hens game and played at Levis mily and her debut Square in Downtown and the Ottawa CD.

Encore!: Huntington Center 9 #

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

Toledo’s newest major entertainment venue got a new name and brought new life to the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Huron Street this year. The $105 million structure formerly known as Lucas County Arena opened in October 2009 and was rechristened Huntington Center on April 16. As the first full calendar year of Toledo Walleye hockey, big-name concerts and popular attractions draws to a close, the executives who operate the arena and its tenants have declared the 270,000-square-foot venue an overwhelming success. “The community has come out and supported the building wholeheartedly,” said Steve Miller, general manager of the Huntington Center and SeaGate Convention Centre. Miller works for SMG, the venue management company that operates both Downtown sites. “I think there’s going to be more good events to come down the road because everyone’s supporting the venue,” he said. The final event for 2010 is the Walleye game Dec. 29. Huntington Center hosted 105 total events this year, Miller said. Two of the most popular events took place

e

es

during the same weekend earlier in the spring. Country star Carrie Underwood played in front of 7,820 fans on April 24, and Elton John performed for 8,640 onlookers the next day. John’s concert was the best-attended event at the Huntington Center in 2010. “He really likes to play in new buildings, so that came about pretty quickly,” Miller said. “The community came out in support, and it did very well.” Hometown heroine Crystal Bowersox returned to Northwest Ohio as part of the “American Idol” tour Aug. 29. The Toledo concert was a bright spot in what proved to be a lackluster tour. More than 7,300 fans came out for the show. “That was a testament to Crystal Bowersox,” Miller said. “We were one of the better-selling dates of the tour.” The Eagles visited the venue on Oct. 20 and drew 8,292 fans, the second-highest number to attend an event at the arena in 2010. The Walleye capped a successful inaugural season in April. The team won 22 of its 36 home games and qualified for the East Coast Hockey League playoffs. The franchise earned the ECHL’s Team Award of Excellence for its “well-rounded business plan including, but not limited to, sales, marketing, media relations and merchandising while also distinguishing themselves in their community, on and off the ice.”

“THE NEW YEAR BEGINS IN A SNOW STORM OF WHITE VOWS.” — GEORGE WILLIAM CURTIS TOLEDOFREEPRESS.COM / WEDNESDAY, DEC. 29, 2010 n 5

A new year for a Dark Knight Batman’s had quite a year — you could say that for most of 2010 he wasn’t even himself. That brooding avenger was killed off in 2008 and replaced by the former Robin, but as is the case in most things comic book-ian, he got better. And boy, did he get better. Bruce Wayne, the original Batman, is back with a vengeance in 2011. Ed Katschke of Monarch Cards and Comics kicks things off as we head into a new year of Dark Knight with a brandnew series titled, appropriately, “Batman: The Dark Knight.” It’s late by several weeks on the schedule but the fever pitch for the inaugural issue couldn’t be hotter. “Fan favorite artist, David Finch, begins his own take on the Caped Crusader in next week’s ‘Batman: The Dark Knight No. 1,’” reports Katschke. “Finch, best known for his Marvel work on ‘New Avengers’ and a series of stunning DC covers — including the currently running ‘Brightest Day’ miniseries — promises a Batman book focusing on the supernatural and esoteric aspects of Gotham City and the first issue features the hero exploring the horrific murder of one of Bruce Wayne’s childhood friends and the terrible ramifications this brutal crime has on his life.”

You may think that Batman and the supernatural go together like peanut butter and jelly but truth be told, it ain’t often so. In more recent times the character’s been mired in a more down-toearth milieu, leaving the weirder tales to others of his costumed ilk. “Batman: The Dark Knight” is the first such series to focus on this theme, conjuring up visions of comic coolness for the Caped Crusader’s fans. Batman’s other new book is only on its second issue, so it’s the perfect vehicle for interested parties to take out for a spin. “‘Batman Inc.’ is the latest stop on writer Grant Morrison’s Bat-train and it is proving to be as wildly inventive and entertaining as the rest of his much lauded run,” says Katschke. “Bruce Wayne has ‘outed’ himself as the financier behind the cowl and is now working as Batman to recruit suitable Batman-like vigilantes across the globe. His first stop is the Land of the Rising Sun and the opening two-part story is a great combination of traditional action/adventure excitement with a healthy dose of humor and pathos.” O — Jim Beard

est Movie: “The Social Network.” Told you so. It was actually a fairly weak year for films, with only the past few weeks bringing any consistent level of quality to moviegoers. And yet, even in the strongest year, David Fincher’s biopic of Mark Zuckerberg would stand out as a remarkable achievement. More than just an examination of the early days of Facebook, the film looks at how one man can change everyone around him, while never finding the ability to change what he dislikes the most — himself. They’ll nominate nine other movies on Oscar night, but if anything else wins Best Picture, it’ll be JEFF highway robbery. Best Farewell: David Tennant leaving “Doctor Who.” The makers of the BBC’s brilliant relaunch of the classic sci-fi series have long been dogged by the specter of the Doctor’s past. How could they hope to find someone who would be able to stand up to the memory of Tom Baker and the others? But in Tennant, they cast a performer who would lead the character to new heights of popularity, becoming a new standard by whom all Doctors to follow would be judged. And when it was time for him to leave, in a two-part finale that climaxed last New Year’s Day, he was sent off with one of the most emotional and spectacular departures ever. Fortunately, Matt Smith, the man who has followed in Tennant’s shoes, has proven more than worthy of the title — but still, Tennant is missed. Best Video Game: “God of War III.” Fans of “Red Dead Redemption” will scream bloody murder at this choice, but I stand by my ear-

lier criticisms. While the world of “Dead” was a beautiful creation and there are many wonderful moments in the game, they could not overcome the crushing disappointments found in the game’s story. Meanwhile, the final adventure of Kratos set new standards in graphical beauty, cinematic majesty and plain excitement. And the overriding story proved surprisingly deep, arriving at an emotional climax where Sony’s ultimate antihero decided to turn his rage and lust for vengeance on his ultimate target — himself. A fitting close to a gaming series that changed the industry. Best Addiction: Netflix. I’m late to the party on this one but better late than never. And oh, what a party it is. A pop culture paradise, the service would be well-worth the price for just the homedelivered DVDs alone. But then you add in the instantly-streaming content available, and it completely changes the way o n e watches entertainment. I’ve been able to catch up on films that I never thought I could track down, and television series that it would have been costly to catch up with, all with remarkable ease. And with the looming showdowns over net neutrality ­— one which Netflix’s bandwidth usage is a big part of — the service will only continue to grow in prominence and importance in the months to come.
