American Idol Says Goodbye: Casey James Heads Home
052010 American Idol fans voted Casey James off . We all knew Casey James was the most likely candidate to head home this week and that point was proven last night. American Idol contestant Casey James showed why people loved him last night when he headed back home to Texas.
When we first met Casey back in the American Idol audition process, the female judges Kara Dioguardi and Victoria Beckham were as giddy as a bunch of teeny boppers because Casey took his shirt off. Week after week on American Idol, Casey James delivered decent performances, relying on his guitar and safe song choices. Much like the other American Idol contestant, Tim Urban, Casey received votes based more on his looks than on his musical ability. While I will give Casey James credit for being a decent musician, decent was just not good enough. American Idol is about finding raw musical talent, not about who looks the best or who should receive the most sympathy for the rough times they have went through.
In closing I think America made the right choice in sending Casey James home. While he had his good nights, they just were not good enough for him to claim the title of American Idol.
..Next week will be the live finale where Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze face-off in what is sure to be one of the best American Idol finales yet.
