American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox has married her boyfriend following a whirlwind romance - just months after she was dumped by a former partner on the eve of the talent show finale.
The singer finished second to Lee DeWyze in May and revealed shortly afterwards that her partner Tony Kusian ended their relationship just hours before she was due to take the stage. Bowersox put the heartbreak behind her by embarking on a new relationship with her longtime pal, musician Brian Walker, and the pair announced its engagement last month.
The 25 year old wed Walker on Sunday at a club in Chicago, Illinois where they met six years ago. She tells People.com, "Our lives have never made more sense than they do right now. I can't believe how incredibly lucky we are to have found so much laughter, love, and light within each other. We're one happy WalkerSox family."
Bowersox, who has a son, Tony, from a previous relationship, was one of many who chose the date 10-10-10 as her wedding day.
