American Idol 2011 hopeful Casey Abrams was just minutes away from being eliminated from the competition tonight when a ray of hope came his way in the form of a wildcard from the judges.
Randy, Jennifer and Steven only had one wildcard left for the entire season and they decided to use it tonight to save Casey Abrams and extend his time on the show.
Abrams has a lot of fans in his corner but has struggled during his time on the show. A few weeks ago, Casey was hospitalized for the second time and learned that he suffers from ulcerative colitis.
Regardless of his breaks from the show, Casey seemed to have a lot of viewer support this season, which is why it came as a complete shock when he was announced as the contestant going home tonight.
When the judges told Casey he was saved, he truly looked stunned.
Fans of the show are already speaking on out twitter about tonight’s news. Some believe that Casey deserves another chance while others believe tonight should have been the end of the road for the Idol hopeful.
The question is: Did the judges make the right decision in using their last wildcard to save Casey Abrams or should he have been sent home tonight?
