Crystal Bowersox Makes Acting Debut on ‘Body Of Proof’

The bad news for Crystal Bowersox fans this week is she just parted ways with her BMG-affiliated record label, Jive, following her Season 9 "Idol" castmate Lee DeWyze's exit from BMG's RCA Records earlier this month. The good news? This same week, she launched her acting career, with a dramatic performance on ABC's "Body Of Proof." And for a first time out, she did a very impressive job.

On the episode, which aired Tuesday night, Crystal played murder suspect and single mom Zoe Brant; the bad-girl-with-a-heart-of-gold role seemed tailor-made for Bowersox, who has overcome plenty of adversity in her own personal life. "She's a bad girl with a good heart, kind of like me" is how Crystal described the Zoe character in a recent TV Line interview. "I'm more of a good girl now with a good heart, but I used to be [like Zoe], though I don't know what it's like to be incarcerated at all. I know nothing about it. My juvenile record is sealed, so it's all good."

Check out Crystal's "Body Of Proof" scene below. It seems that when one door closes, another one opens for this talented woman.
