Casey James Eliminated from American Idol

The 3 remaining American Idol contestants were interviewed at length during the show. Their insights to what they go through on a weekly basis, how they juggle their time, along with their hopes and dreams for the outcome of the contest were discussed. The animated “Wild One” Ford video was pretty cool.

The Idols were taken to their home towns where the cameras followed them around. Casey James went to Cool, Texas, where he visited his home town high school and the hospital where he recovered from a serious accident. He gave a small concert at a nearby stadium and was cheered by a throng of Texans.  Crystal flew to Toledo and was met by a huge crowd late night at the airport. The following day included a parade, several live appearances, a family BBQ at her dad’s farm, throwing out the opening pitch at a Mud Hens game, and a live concert where she sang an original song titled “Holy Toledo”.  Lee DeWyze landed in Chicago made the early morning FOX program and threw out the opening pitch at a Cubs game. He went to his elementary school to spend some time with some kids before going to his old job at a paint store in Mt Prospect.  He also rode in a parade and gave a concert.

Travis Garland and Justin Bieber performed live.

The Idols were reviewed on their previous night’s performance. It was announced that Lee DeWyze was going to the finals next week. Crystal Bowersox joined Lee as the other finalist for next week’s show. Casey James performed his swan song “Daughters” as his quest for the prize had ended.

One more week to go and the two favorites are deservingly in the final. It will take a great performance to become the next American Idol.
