American Idol: Haley’s Exit Sets Up Country Final

The jazz singer from Chicago was sent home from American Idol tonight as Haley Reinhart was eliminated. Consistently finishing in the bottom group in the show's early weeks, Haley rallied for a comeback that the show has rarely seen. After a stirring rendition of "Benny and Jets" during Motown Week, Haley began to win over fans across America and her growls even brought smiles to some faces. Ultimately though, Haley was unable to win enough votes to outlast the country kids Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. Scotty and Lauren now form the youngest final in American Idol history (at ages 17 and 16 respectively), and together they will bring country music to the forefront next week. Who will emerge victorious?

American Idol: Casey Can’t Be Saved

For the second time on American Idol this season, Casey Abrams was pegged for elimination. This week though, there was no save available for the judges and Casey was sent home. The bearded 20-year old from Idyllwild was one of the more colorful contestants on the show. A true musician, Abrams could be counted on doing something dramatically different every week, whether it was singing Nirvana, playing the base, or kissing Jennifer Lopez. After being shockingly saved in Top-11 week, Abrams didn't face the Bottom Three again until this week when he joined Scotty McCreery and Jacob Lusk. While Abrams was extremely talented, his occasional growls and unusual style scared off some voters. Our very own Noah Duman was hoping Abrams would be eliminated after his rendition last night of Carole King's "Hi-De-Ho". Now, American can wonder if Casey's rumored girlfriend Haley Reinhart will be the next to go.

Paul McDonald became the first male finalist eliminated from American Idol this season, as voters just couldn't give enough love to the quirky 26-year old singer from Alabama who was known for his wacky outfits. Stefano Langone managed to survive another week but his third finish in the bottom two doesn't bode well for his future. Haley Reinhart was third from the bottom.
