Though Casey constantly plays it safe and does the same thing every week, his main problem is that his voice just isn't good enough. Do people actually enjoy listening to his singing? It's so strained, bleaty, and conjected. That's the problem with this season. The talent level is just not up to the normal standard. Besides Crystal, all of the contestants have majors ceilings and nothing they can do will make them rack up to contestants past.

man, i'm a true Casey fan but even i was a lil bit bored by his performance. but nah.... he's not gonna go home and yes, results came out, he's save!!! but bottom 3 is gonna at least ruin his credit a lil bit. anyway, last night performances was kinda really boring!!! till Crystal showed up and cry her eyes out. GO CASEY! I'M STRONGLY HOPE THAT YOU'LL DO BETTER NEXT WEEK!!! i'm puttin all my hopes on you man!!!

Casey you have GOT TO lose that guitar next week and bring us something new!!!! You have a LOT of potential which you are not fully displaying! I thought you'd have awoken from your stupor last week when the judges gave you bad reviews.

It was ok. He can sing but didn't go Gaga over the song. He's looking very handsome with his hair tied in.

I was disappointed with Casey's song choice tonight but he did another good solid performance. He has been ill all week with a sinus infection which may also have affected him and well as getting sunburnt. I think he may be in the bottom three this week but sincerely hope that he's not going home. With his talent he deserves a higher finish and there are still others there who should go home before Casey.

On a shallow note he did look great!

if he keeps on choosing songs like that.... then, that's what kind of artist he wanna be... very 80's...

i agree with simon, nothing inspiring at all...

LOVE HIM! He sounded so much like Bob Seger tonight. I am really going to be angry if he goes home tomorrow. He is a very talented musician who deserves better than a 7th place finish. I am looking at a few of you right now - you know who you are that have stayed past your talent.

I thought it was good. I like his gravely voice:) I think the finale will be Crystal and Lee, though.

He's going to be snapped up by a record company. He's got potential. Just needs to move a bit more, stop being stiff. And he's too cute to be cut.

Don't you guys know (think) there's a fatigue factor working right about now?

Casey, Casey, Casey, NOoooooooooo!!!! I fear he will for sure be in the Bottom 3, if not go home on that note! Clinton's inauguration song, really??! It suited his voice but was boring. I agree he should've done a Bon Jovi song (tho NOT Livin' on a Prayer, cause that was David Cook's audition song and he killed it. Casey just doesn't get that he needs to hit it out of the park every time. I don't think he's Top Idol material (and I had pegged him to win). So sad right now. ;-(

He needs to "get out of his comfort zone"....he doesn't know what that means -- Casey: If you're reading this it means, PUT THE DAMN GUITAR DOWN AND MOVE AROUND THE STAGE.

I predict he'll be in the bottom 3.

I enjoyed his guitar work more than his singing tonight. I always picture him as member of a band more than as a lead entertainer.

Please send him home this week.... It is so very very uninspired.

I'm a huge Casey fan but even I was disappointed tonight.
Really really disappointed.

I expect way more out of him, he needs to wake up and realize the same all the time is boring, sure consistent is alright but change it up, be different from time to time.

Casey continues his '80's cover band tour on the Idol stage. Lame.

Thumbs down all you want, you haters, but it's TRUE!

It was good, but it seems the same thing over and over and over again...although his not the only one with that problem this season. Anyone else thinks his smile is kind of awkward?

I liked it =)
His voice reminds me of Eddie Vedder's...

simon's right. it wasn't really inspiring. i'm not too crazy about the performance.

I wish Casey would have pushed more by singing songs like It's my life or livin on a prayer by bon jovi. Like rock it out more. I swear he needs to just look at the list, close his eye and pick a song. that's what Bo did for musical week and he pulled it off.

Katie

I read somewhere that our main idol rocker Bo Bice would love to see Casey put the guitar down and use the stage and the mic, like he did. I like that they allow the contestant to use instruments but if you are gonna hide behind it. it just doesn't work, I don't think there has been a single week that casey hasn't had a guitar in front of him. if he knows how to play other instruments he should utilize that talent and not always go for the guitar. Plus someone really needs to help some of them pick songs this year and actually make the songs their own instead of copy cat. If you can't change the song enough to make it your own and sound good, don't pick it.

I don't think that his range can accomodate a big Bon Jovi song, this song suits him well.

I heard he was getting over a cold and a bad sunburn, I feel bad for that part. I wonder what his hair would look like if he took the ponytail out, I heard a friend of his put it in 3 french braids for rehearsal yesterday or this morning

A good performance but there was nothing spectacular about it. His goat vibrato was really there tonight....lol.

Never been a big fan but I thought that was really good. Great energy. More then he usually brings. Don't get the judges but that's nothing new.

wow this actually made me yawn, and by the way i have to say USHER was the most inspiring mentor this season he actually helped the idolist, and casey just plays safe songs he should go to the bottom three so it can wake him up!

Lacey

I agree, needs to be in the bottom 3 to wake his a** up. But still a solid performance, he never delivers anything horrible like Turban. And he is sooo S*xy!!

Curtis

I think that was a good performance. Casey is very consistent. He is my favorite now that Andrew is gone.

Is this "American Idol" or "American Very Consistent"?
