‘American Idol’ bids farewell to Casey Abrams (VIDEO)
Casey Abrams has left “American Idol“.
After being saved by the judges five weeks ago, the full-bearded singer/musician was voted off the Fox talent competition despite impressing the panel with his voice during the show’s Carole King week.
This was only the second time the 20-year-old from Idyllwild, California appeared as a bottom-three vote getter–but he didn’t look upset at all this time around. Joining him Thursday at the bottom 3 were gospel singer Jacob Lusk and country crooner Scotty McCreery.
“This is what talent looks like, ladies and gentlemen,” host Ryan Seacrest announced before Casey went out with a stirring performance of “I Put a Spell on You”, which was highlighted by an embrace with his rumored girlfriend, Haley Reinhart.
The top five contestants left on “Idol” are: Lauren Alaina, Lusk, Reinhart, McCreery and James Durbin. The winner will be announced May 25.
