Casey Abrams has left the Idol stage.
The bearded upbeat eclectic singer who played guitar was voted off, leaving Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart to battle for the Idol title.
Wednesday’s performance show, the Top 6 performed the songs of singer/songwriter Carole King, and Abrams, 20, from Wilmette, IL, sang “Hi De Ho.”
Crystal Bowersox performed tonight, as did Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Bruno Mars.
On Wednesday, May 4 (8:00-9:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 5 finalists – Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart – return to the IDOL stage to perform songs from “now and then” – one current song and one from the 1960s.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, May 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to find out who will make it to the Top 4. In addition, IDOL judge and global superstar Jennifer Lopez will perform “On The Floor” with rapper Pitbull, and country music sensation Lady Antebellum will sing their latest song. “On The Floor,” the first single off Lopez’s new album, “Love?” (available in stores May 3).
