There’s no easy way to say goodbye, but a kiss doesn’t hurt.
Casey Abrams was ousted on American Idol Thursday night, but he still has his sense of humor in tact.
“I feel really good,” he told reporters about his elimination. “Maybe I’ll break down and cry later.”
Completely denying romance rumors with fellow contestant Hailey Reinhart, he said “no, we are not” a couple and “we were never dating.”
Casey, who’s somewhat of a kissing bandit on the show, revealed which judge is the best kisser: Steven Tyler.
“J.Lo let me kiss her, Steven Tyler kissed me back!” he joked.
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.
