Casey Abrams‘ rendition of “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5 was alright last night. He’s got a little funk to him, enough to do Adam Levine justice out there.
The vocals were mediocre at times, but give him credit for not holding back on the performance. He ended the song right in front of J. Lo – and kissed her.
Steven approves. “You did what I’ve been trying to do for two months!” he said.
Jennifer Lopez actually blushed, too. “I loved it,” she says. “The performance!”

“It’s hard to find a song that defines me as an artist.” – Casey Abrams
These American Idol kids are getting frisky. Like James Durbin, Casey butted heads a bit with producer Jimmy Iovine regarding his selection Wednesday.
Jimmy nearly talked Abrams into doing Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” but he went with his gut and that meant channeling a little Nat King Cole.
Iovine wasn’t pleased, but the judges give a standing ovation after a intimate, stripped down performance that Casey really put his heart and soul into.
Whether “Nature Boy” defines him as an artist remains to be seen. ButMore >
Casey Abrams, who was voted off American Idol the first week of the finals, only to be bailed out by the judges, is doing his best to prove himself worthy of the save.
The stripped-down version of Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” he performed last night should keep him around another week for sure.
His energy and playing the stand-up bass in a cool, jazzy arrangement more than compensated for high-pitched vocals that were a little over the top at times.
Casey Abrams might still be in shock. The same goes for American Idol viewers, who didn’t expect the judges to use their one save on him so early in the season.
But that they did last week, a decision Jennifer Lopez says she’s fine with.
“We knew that it was kind of a radical decision because it was so early in the season, but to be quite honest… that is one decision that I haven’t lost one ounce of sleep over,” the singer told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today.

Okay… but why Abrams?

Casey Abrams was shaking and had to sit down after he was eliminates on Thursday night from reality TV show American Idol and then told half way through his “last chance” song that he was safe.
For the first time on American Idol the panel of three judges stopped a contestant mid-song to tell them they were safe, calling Abrams dismissal from the show a huge mistake that should never have happened.
The night before Abrams sang Marvin Gaye’s “Heart It Through The Grapevine” and was even considered a show frontrunner until that point.
Also in the bottom three, Thia Megia and StefanoMore >
Casey Abrams saw his life flash before his eyes last night. His American Idol life, that is.
The bearded singer was surprisingly voted out by fans, following a lackluster Motown cover on Wednesday. Like the finalists before him, Casey was then given the chance to sing one more time in front of the judges in order to convince them to use their one-time “save” and keep him around.
And it worked! In a decision that left Abrams visibly stunned – and audibly cursing at one point, watch the clip below – J. Lo, Randy and Steven told the contestant he was safe.More >
Three weeks into the American Idol finals, we were treated to our first surprise. Our first shock, really.
Following an off night on Wednesday for a couple of THG favorites – Thia Megia and Casey Abrams – they found themselves in the bottom three along with Stefano Langone. It was a scary few moments for those of us who love Thia’s voice and Casey’s originality.
In the end, Megia and Langone were told to join the other, safe contestants, while millions of jaws crashed to the floor when Ryan told Casey he had been voted out. He went back to “I Don’t Need No Doctor” in an attempt to beMore >
The concluding, standing ovation-inducing performance of Casey Abrams on American Idol last night almost never happened.
This semifinalist was holed up in a hospital late last week, teetering on the edge of disqualification when he came close to missing Friday’s taping of the top 12 male performances.
But Casey rallied, and season 10 is clearly better off for it. The crooner delivered an unusual, sharp, entertaining rendition of “I Put a Spell on You,” growing, hissing and howling throughout, before ending on a relaxed high note. Both literally and figuratively. It was the idealMore >

Sadly, Color Me Badd singer Bryan Abrams has forgotten the message from his group’s chart-topping 1991 single, “All 4 Love.”
For the second time in two years, Abrams has been arrested on charges of domestic abuse. The latest incident took place in Hawaii, as Honolulu police booked Abrams for harassment after he and his wife got into an argument, and he allegedly tossed her across the room.
