Not only did Crystal Bowersox lose American Idol, she also lost her boyfriend Tony.

On Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Thursday, she revealed that they quietly ended their relationship this week on performance day.

"He wasn't cool with the lifestyle," she explained. "I didn't break up with him. It was a mutual thing. It's cool, though. We're both logical, grown adults."

The Elliston, Ohio, native, 24, said that despite being a small town girl, "I want this career, this lifestyle, more than anything, and I didn't think he was up for it. He didn't think he was up for it. I'm a little sad he did it on performance day, but than again, it set that fire in my belly."

Although she said she "was hoping he'd come to the finale," where she was named runner-up, she said he was probably "driving" on his way back to Ohio.

Bowersox, who has a son from a previous relationship, won't have time to miss him.

Asked what she'll be up to next, she told "Tour! We go on tour, do some more press, hopefully record an album while on tour … Now the real work begins. My life is never going to be the same, and I’m ready for all of it."
