Casey Abram's Idol spell has been broken

Last week, much to the disappointment of his fans, it was the end of the road for Casey Abrams, and there is no way around it, because someone has to go home every week until it is down to two. On the week of his elimination, he sang "Hi Dee Ho" by Carole King giving that jazzy feel showing what a true musician he is.  Ryan Seacrest warned the viewers that many fans would be disappointed with the results. Back in top 11 week, Abrams was saved by the judges, but Pia Toscano is more worthy of the judges' save. 

Casey Abrams was born to Pam Pierce and Ira Abrams on February 12, 1991, in Austin Texas, thus one day older than season 7 semifinalist Alexandréa Lushington, who should have made the top 12 instead of Kristy Lee Cook. He spent his early years in Evanston, Illinois, then in Wilmette, Illinois, where he attended McKenzie Elementary School. He auditioned for season 10 in Austin, Texas. Two days before he was to perform for the top 24 semifinal round, he suffered severe stomach pains and was rushed to the hospital. He was well enough to participate on the performance show, but due to his illness, he missed the top 13 results show, where Ashthon Jones was eliminated.

Meanwhile, my season 10 favorite Jacob Lusk began the performance show with "Oh No Not My Baby", which was written by Carole King and originally recorded by Maxine Brown, and the judges really loved his performance and he made the top 5, thus reaching my expectations. However, this week is likely his time to go home, but he earned a spot in the top 5. Seasons 3, 7, and 8 are the only seasons where my favorite finalist did not make the top 5, who are Jennifer Hudson, Chikezie Eze, and Jasmine Murray respectively. If Jacob Lusk gets eliminated, I will vote for James Durbin.

This week, the contestanst sing songs from the last few years and then from the 1960s or 1970s. To vote for Jacob Lusk, dial either 1-866-436-5702 or 1-866-436-5707.
