I think the eccentricities and the “growling” were a distraction for viewers and failed to bring Casey the support he needed to go further in the competition. I cannot say I am surprised by this as Casey is not mainstream enough to be the next American Idol.
Song choice is always important. Casey tended to pick obscure songs that viewers could not relate to. Of all the material from Carol King week to choose from; case in point.
Farewell Casey. You are a talented musician and hopefully will find your niche in jazz.
52 million Americans voted and Stefano went home tonight, but not without singing his heart out!
I think James Durban will temporarily lose his best friend. However, Stefano will be on tour this summer and if he plays his cards right could have a music career.
David Cook and Katy Perry provided musical entertainment tonight. Katy Perry’s number was a huge production of her new song ET with Kanye West. David Cook is looking well and sang the first single off his new album.
Next week the top six sing Carol King songs!!! Can’t wait for that!
Jacob and Haley were also in the bottom three. I am guessing one of them will go home next week.
What a nutty night full of guest appearances and drama.
R&B legend Stevie Wonder sang “Happy Birthday” to Steven Tyler…how awesome is that!
Hulk Hogan dropped by to tell self-professed “Hulkamaniac” James Durban he was SAFE. Staying true to form, Hogan ripped off his shirt (Ryan gave it to James). Then the Hulkster fake punches Ryan Seacrest in the face (LMAO) and sent him flying into the audience. Hysterical!
Special musical guest Sugarland performed their new song “Stuck Like Glue” and a svelte Jennifer Hudson dropped by to launch her new single “Where You At?”
Crazy bottom three this week:
Casey Abrams received the lowest number of votes. Casey started to sing for his life and was stopped by Randy Jackson. The judges used their save. Everybody went nuts, including a stunned Casey. It was insane in the membrane.
Final shocker: Ryan tells us ALL 11 finalists will go on tour, not just the top ten. BUT…….two people will go home next Thursday night. People better “bring it”.
