HOLLYWOOD - And suddenly there were cinco (5) singers left on American Idol as Ryan "Peaches" Seacrest told the standing room only crowd at The American Idol Theater in Hollywood.
This weeks Bottom Three saw Jacob "Ebenezer Baptist" Lusk, Scotty "Cowpoke" McCreery, and Casey "The Growler" Abrams.
And after listening to Bruno Mars, Crystal Bowersox, Ke$ha, and Blanket Jackson perform Julianne Hough's boyfriend Ryan Seacrest asked that the lights be dimmed.
"Peaches" Seacrest actually had a Bottom Four instead of a Bottom Three this week. The first to be sent back to the "Safe Seats" was Lauren "Peaches" Alaina, no relation to Seacrest.
She ran so fast to get to safety that she almost stepped on poor, little, svelte Haley Reinhart, who after the show confided to Steven Tyler that had Lauren stepped on her it would have hurt like hell since Lauren clearly outweighs her by about 90 pounds.
Seacrest then sent "Ebenezer Baptist" Lusk to safety. He could be heard saying Hallelujah over and over.
And then the Bottom Three had become the Bottom Two. And so it was now down to Casey who had kissed Jennifer Lopez and Scotty who had said that he had once kissed a gelding back on his grandpa's North Carolina farm.
Seacrest dimmed the lights some more and then he stated that the person going home tonight was...Casey Abrams.
J.Lo started crying, Steven Tyler started whimpering, and Randy Jackson started saying yo, yo, yo, yo did I ever tell y'all that I worked with Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Shakira, Boo Boo Stewart, and The Beatles?
Casey surprisingly took it all in stride saying that he would probably end up singing on an upcoming episode of Dancing With The Stars just like Pia Toscano had done.
