HAHA... BEING ROBBED ALSO HAPPENED DURING SEASON 7 WITH SYESHA MERCADO.. ACCORDING TO REPORT... SHE IS ABOUT TO SING LISTEN of BEYONCE AS HER CONTESTANT CHOICE.. BUT THE PRODUCERS STOPPED HER BECAUSE THEY HEARD THAT SHE PERFORMED THE SONG TOO WELL.. THEY WANT THE DAVIDS BATTLE IT OUT IN THE FINALE THATS WHY THEY MAKE SYESHA SING SONGS THAT LACK THE POTENTIAL OF BRINGING HER TO THE FINALE.. THEY ROBBED SYESHA FOR CHOOSING SONGS LIKE HIT ME UP, FEVER & IF I AIN'T GOT YOU...
Poinks, been reading the same. Casey was forced to change the song. I was really surprised that he wouldn't choose a all out guitar laced blues song. Seems as if THAT is what he was rehearsing yet mysteriously had to change to a really laid back song that seemed rushed. And I know his brother and Mom aren't too happy with the show. Ah well just goes along with everything else. I wish Casey the best in the future. He has been dragged across broken glass by the judges and still remains grateful and humble.
This producers really showed that this showed is fixed .I didn't believed it last year when adam was robbed bit i guessed it's so obvious tonight particularly with the song choice that randy and kara choose for casey while in the previous seasons they criticized the daughter of john mayer as toneless.Why did they give it to casey?I can't even hear the words of crystal in her song and all the judges were praising to her.lee was shouting in haleluiaah and yet no negative comment they gave.Simon was laughing mocking to casey after his performance this is a bad example to the young audience it showed bullying that's why it's rampant in schools because some shows are not that responsible to edit the negative comments rather constructive.If they have chosen two top contestants already that why let the americans vote ,for financial gain while we watch somebody is bullied on national television to sabotage the contestant so as to be voted off as randy said to casey """before you leave"before casey sings the daughter,maybe randy forgot the script and he spilled the beans. that the show it's fixed.Why is simon to be knighted when he is good in bullying people so as to be voted off.?This show is not worth watching anymore as conspiracy is obvious and is scripted.Precisely the most talented ones are voted off
According to the spoilers casey should be doing a number that can make the people on their feet and dance with amp. .but according to what we see in his 1st performance the amp was not there and its not a song that can make u dance. .did they changed casey’s song? and there’s 1 more thing the band started to play while casey is getting the pick in his pocket so he have to rush in the beginning did u notice that? casey’s vocals tonight was good . .i think crystal was the weakest tonight. .i still like jason castro’s hallelujah.
i want crystal/casey finale but its not gonna happen. .ill be happy enough if he is in d finale. .
It's, "Ok It's Alright With Me" Not 'by'. It's by Eric Hutchinson <3.
At any rate, wasn't a fan of Casey tonight. I like him, but definitely shouldn't be in the top 2.
FOR YOU GUYS… WHICH SEASON HAS THE BEST TOP 3 AND WHY? EXPLAIN FOR EACH OF THE FINALIST…

JORDIN – BLAKE – MELINDA
DAVID COOK – DAVID ARCHIE – SYESHA
KRIS – ADAM – DANNY
CRYSTAL – LEE – CASEY
Casey.... You are the best for me. Being in the top 3 position is great. Winning is not everything. The runners- up fare better than the winner. The odds are against you due to poor song choices ( Daughters... boy, I think you were sabotaged!!), but I still hope you win!!!
It's a set up.Casey could have done it better the way he used to,comparing to his past performances.something or someone is trying to hold him up tonight.it's not the useful full blast outstanding performance that casey delivered e very week plus the fact he has only two days to rehearse since he has two days homecoming.Plus the bad song choices that judges gave him.It's a set up .Too bad we can't see really a performance of such talented artist like casey next week.
oh, c'mon.... i know you guys are Casey fans too, but stop sayin that he should be goin home tomorrow in order to save himself blah blah blah. i'm one of the biggest fan of Casey and i want him to win real bad!!!! i'm tellin ya, if i control this "so-called" show, i'll let him win without any single doubt and let lee and crystal go rock, paper and scissors. whoever wins get a chance to be in the finale...
that's so selfish but whatever....... i'm his biggest fan!!!!! i told all my family and friends in America to vote for him!!!!!!!! GO CASEY!!!!! I WISH ALL MY EVERYTHING FOR YOU TO BE IN THE TOP 2 AND THEN WIN THIS WHOLE THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you rock man!!!
The show is bias as always. TPTB knew Crystal is a shoo in for finale so they have to over pimp Lee to make sure he's in too and gave Casey a lazy song? I hope he goes home tomorrow and save himself from this season's embarrassment.
I am so sure either Crystal or Lee won't sell albums well. They just don't have the star power to make people buy. Kelly, Carrie, Daughtry, Clay and Ruben, Archie, Cook and Adam are already stars in their season. They sold not only albums but also sold concert tickets. Kris is so much better than these two (looks, voice and musicality wise) but could not sell albums that well;
There is no hope for Crystal and Lee, IMO
I'm really upset that Casey didn't go for broke and deliver a smokin' blues number. I'd bet that if he tried, they'd have claimed clearance issues. Eh, maybe he's just ready to go. I hate "Daughters" but I like his version far better than the original. I hope he gets a record deal. He was born to ROCK the blues.
I liked both of his performances. The pimping is too obvious. I didn't vote this season at all but thinking of voting for Casey today just to protest.
Joke song choices by him mostly and judges, he's the best singer this season-he just forgot to show it. So dissapointed in him tonight.
Great job on the 'Daughters' song. Casey James FTW. The other song is nicely done too!. Wat to go, Casey!!!. Who wants to listen to Simon???? He never gets anything right, anyway!
I loved Casey's performances. He seemed comfortable with them both and this fit his southern raspy bluesy vocals. Only disappointed that he seems to have listened to the judges at some point because he barely played his guitar in either. And Kara is a flat out idiot.
found this comment from Mjs blog..
"If Casey’s lucky, he WILL be going home tomorrow night…that way he won’t be always known as the ‘winner’ of the WORST season of Idol ever…..
I still say, he’ll be the only one to still be in the industry a year from now…."
Kara is so idiotic...her explanation about why they chose 'Daughters' for Casey is exactly what they complain about when someone chooses a lazy song with no range. Do they think everyone watching is totally clueless, seems like it!
Casey got the shaft tonight with that song choice.
"It’s hard to sing a song people don’t know" ??? How stupid is she? I am going to leave it like that.
Thanks for the video! I'm on the west coast and the anticipation was literally making me sick to my stomach. I think Casey did just fine, but he he didn't have the WOW moment he needed. Based on the homecoming videos, I was hoping he'd rock the roof off the place. I wonder if Idol won't let him?
American Idol is sexist and don't want Casey to win. Women and girls only!!! Casey will be the most successful in anycase.
I think Casey was set up also with that lame song! I also think Michael Johns got the shaft and I was totally upset when he left. He has a BEAUIFUL voice and he is a great looking guy and very nice and humble. I don't think I am going to watch Idol anymore!
yup! I've just have seen countless performances with guitar and I'm used to being bored with that.
No more guitar performances! Lee performed almost with his guitar from the beginning and will keen on doing that 'till the end of the season!
THAT'S WHY PEOPLE THINK THIS SHOW IS BORING!!!
Good point. As pissed as I am about the favoritism, and would secretly love to see an upset the size of Kris beating Adam, I think it's better for Casey not to win this. I don't see Casey minding too much if he goes home next week.
Exactly! Their song choice sucked worse than his in the "range" department. They screwed him so hard. I would vote off Kara. Man, why couldn't they have picked him SOMETHING a little more exciting. Morons. I guess anything to get their "Crystal-Lee" final. woo.
Ninergrl6 you and your fellow Casey fans need to vote your butts off....
1-866-436-5701, 5704 and 5707
No, Big Mike is not in the Top 3 because people thought it was arrogant and cocky even though it thought he was the best "singer" and entertainer this season.
