Who Got Kicked Off Idol? – I Miss the Beard Already

Another Thursday, another night of seeing who got kicked off Idol.  Tonight the last two left standing were Casey Abrams and Scotty Mcreery, and Casey Abrams got the boot.

Despite a judges save, clear improvement throughout the season, ridiculous ability on multiple instruments, and a voice that could move between musical genres with ease, Casey Abrams received the lowest number of votes.  This isn’t a surprising result by any means, he never fully gave into the Idol mindset of becoming marketable enough to take home the grand prize.  People as musically gifted as Casey Abrams rarely win American Idol and given his insistence on unique performances, I am surprised that he made it as long as he did.


Casey was never the best singer on the show, but he was the best musician.  Now he can grow that beard as much as he wants and sing with as much growl as he pleases.  Good for him!

The reason Scotty was near bottom was: Six (6) Southern States were partly destroyed and 328 people died. He is from Texas and Southerners vote for Souterners, besides he has a geat voice. Judges don’t like Country Music… All of them are great….

Thank you for your comment! I agree on the talent level this year, a lot of great singers. I would like to clarify a few points though.

As I understood it, there was no bottom three last night. It just happened to be Scotty up there with Casey at the end. Either way, Scotty is actually from Garner, NC, right near my hometown. Lauren is from Georgia, so the southern vote is split. That is going to make it difficult for both of them to make it to the finals.

The judges have also been very supportive of Scotty and Lauren, who both favor country music. Country singers usually don’t win Idol because their voices are so genre specific, but the judges have always been supportive of them in the competition. I think the lack of genre favoritism from the judges has really helped this season as a whole.

Thanks for reading!

There was no bottom 3, thats no longer relevant since the contestants are down to 5 now. Ryan said random order. Scotty was there to add drama but he was really the top vote getter. Casey was there because he didnt get enough votes.
