Casey on the other hand is not only an interesting singer/musician/artist, he has a personality that shows on stage. He did get a little too far off the beaten path for a couple of weeks, but he deserved to be saved and has a good shot of at least being in the top 5, maybe more.
I couldn't have said it better myself, spot on. But I'll try, It's called American Idol not who is the best singer, there is more to being an Idol than singing, in fact one might argue it has less to do with singing than most might expect. But your best point is look who is voting, that says it all.
