Mighty Casey Abrams has struck out.
In the bottom two with Scotty McCreery, the scruffy 20-year-old’s rendition of Hi-De-Ho on Wednesday’s Carole King night failed to impress the masses, and he was given the boot on Thursday night’s results show.
Abrams wrapped up his run with a passionate performance of the classic, I Put a Spell on You.
Abrams had a memorable stint on the show’s tenth season, as his oddball charisma and over-the-top performances prompted the judges to use their one-time-only save on him. He returned the favor on last week’s edition, giving J.Lo a peck on the cheek at the end of his rendition of Maroon 5′s Harder to Breathe.
The remaining five contestants in this year’s competition include boys Scotty McCreery, James Durbin and Jacob Lusk; and girls Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart. The winner will be announced on the show’s May 26 finale.
American Idol returns Wednesday on Fox at 8/7c.
