My man Casey James did not receive enough votes to make it into the finale of American Idol.  Casey was gracious after the announcement thanking AI for the opportunity and claiming it was an amazing journey.  I don’t think we’ve seen the last of this handsome young man.

Not only did Casey show tremendous talent on the guitar he also had some pretty awesome vocals.  Had he known the best songs to choose to show off his voice he probably would have made it into the finals.  Kara and Randy’s choice of “Daughters” by John Mayer didn’t do him any favors either.

Be sure to tune in next week as Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze battle it out for your votes Tuesday night on FOX with the finale and the crowning of this year’s American Idol on Wednesday.  Who do you want to win between these to finalists?
