The 24-year-old says that she ended her relationship just hours before the AI finale began.

Bowersox reveals to Ryan:

    "We're both logical, grown adults. He went home. He wasn't cool with the lifestyle. He's a small-town guy and that's fine. 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. He's been amazing. He stuck it out through this whole thing. ... We're going to be friends for a long time."

Lee DeWyze, 24, beat out Bowersox for the American Idol title.
