Was Crystal Bowersox Inspired By ‘Growing Pains?’

Last night on American Idol Crystal Bowersox wowed us yet again by taking on Gladys Knight & the Pips’ “Midnight Train to Georgia,” stepping out from behind the acoustic guitar to behind a piano and then stepping out from behind said piano.  Despite what Simon said, it was lovely to see another side of her, because no matter the instrument or the shoes or the hair it was still quintessential Bowersox.

But, as my sister remind me, many of us (or just my sister and I) best know this classic tune as performed by Kirk Cameron and Tracey Gold on Growing Pains.  Could it be that Bowersox grew up addicted to the show just like us?  Will she put her own spin on “Show Me That Smile” during “Classic TV Themes Week?  One can only hope and pray (although it seems that Chris Daughtry has beat her to it).

The Seaver version (starts about 30 seconds in):
