On March 21, Casey Abrams returned to the scene of his first television gig, "American Idol." The singer was on the set of the ABC show to sing for his fans, offering up a Beatles tune called "I Saw Her Standing There, " which was performed in honor of John Lennon and Paul McCartney since the two lads from Liverpool provided their stellar songbook to all the contestants singing this week on the popular small screen show.
It was good to see Abrams back on the "AI" stage, rocking a heavy beard and plucking away at his stand-up bass. As is typical of this gritty singer, Casey put a jazzy tinge on the iconic anthem by Lennon and McCartney and received a lot of applause for doing so.
No doubt this "American Idol" alum had a great time as he entertained while the top 9 contestants left in this year's competition stood by to see who would be eliminated during the results show on Thursday.
So who left "American Idol" on March 21? Sadly, that person was another top male singer called Paul Jolley who was voted off the show.
That said, Casey Abrams understood how Jolley felt. After all, when he was on 'AI" for season 10, this popular singer lasted until the final 6 when he was then voted off, only to go on to make music on his own. Now he has a self-titled album under his belt with many more tunes to come.
That said, besides making music like he did on March 21, Casey Abrams of "American Idol" fame is also passing along the word on IBD as the national spokesman for the malady's official campaign. Indeed, inflammatory bowel disease is also something for which Abrams knows a lot about since he suffers from ulcerative colitis and is all for giving help to others who are in his same situation.
