At a glance Casey Abrams and Scotty McCreery are very different musically, but when you take a deeper look at them they have a lot in common. The both play instruments, they both have interesting voices and they both have a style that is all their own.

Casey Abrams flirted with disaster a few weeks ago when he was voted out only to be saved by the American Idol judges when they used the seasons only save. Since then he has been on fire and has been nowhere near the bottom three. Last week he impressed as he played the upright bass and sang a quiet, powerful version of CCR’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain.” This week I would love to see him slow it down even more. Casey Abrams is effective when he is quiet and I think he has the levity in his voice to pull off the dramatic “Mad World” from Donny Darko.

Scotty McCreery rocked the house with Elvis last week and is clearly a fan favorite as we saw last week when girls rushed the stage to hug him at the end of this performance. I would love to see him get back to his old school country roots this week and do “Homeland” by George Strait from the movie Pure Country. I think Scotty McCreery really has a legit chance at winning this competition so long as he doesn’t get too crazy and sticks to what he does best.

Tonight is the American Idol live show at 8PM on FOX. Tune in to see Casey Abrams and Scotty McCreery perform along with the rest of the remaining eight.
