Fans of loveable American Idol 2011 contestant Casey Abrams will be very disappointed to learn that the talented singer/musician was eliminated from the show tonight.
That’s right, it was Casey, Jacob and Scotty in the bottom three (although the bottom 3 were not necessarily those with the lowest votes) and Abrams had the lowest votes of all the contestants left on the show. The news comes as a huge shock to fans, who may have resisted from voting this week thinking that their favorite contestant was in the clear.
If fans have learned anything from this show, it’s to never assume someone is safe. This wasn’t the first time Casey was voted off the show this season. Earlier in the year, the bubbly, multi-talented performer was eliminatd due to lack of viewer votes but was, fortunately, saved by the judges as they felt he showed more potential than had been seen at that point.
They were right.
In the following weeks, Casey performed his heart out on stage every week (and even sparked up a romance with fellow Idol contestant Haley Reinhart) and seemed to be a shoe-in for the final 4. If there’s anything to say about American Idol, it’s that it’s unpredictable and that fact was proven tonight.
Maybe he should have kissed Steven Tyler? Perhaps that would have secured him a spot in next week’s competition?
What do you think of Casey Abrams’ elimination tonight. Did he deserve to be sent home?
