American Idol 2010: Lee and Crystal get recording contracts

Yesterday was a good one for the final 2 contestants on American Idol as they both signed recording contracts.  Lee signed with 19 recordings limited and RCA, the same as Daughtry and Adam Lambert while Crystal signed with 19 recordings limited and Jive records who produced Kris Allen and Jordin Sparks’ albums.

We’ve also learned that Crystal and her boyfriend broke up on Tuesday before the final performance episode.  Crystal announced this on the Ryan Seacrest radio show and said, “We’re both logical, grown adults. He’s a small town guy and it’s fine. But I’m a small town girl, but I want this. I want this more than anything — this career, this lifestyle. I didn’t think he was up for it. He didn’t think he was up for it.”
