There was not a dull moment on American Idol’s elimination results show Thursday night, in what some are calling the craziest Idol episode ever.
About 25 seconds into singing “Don’t Need No Doctor,” the judges cut Casey’s’ song short, letting him know they needed to hear no more. He was being saved. “We know who you are, Casey,” said Randy. “We don’t need to hear you sing anymore, do we Steven?” “We made a decision to keep you on,” added Steven.
“Are you kidding, are you kidding,” muttered 20-year-old Casey over and over, appearing very stunned and almost on the verge of collapse, before staggering over to the judges’ table to thank them.
And just like that, the judges used their one and only save of the season, which means with 11 contestants still remaining, no one else can be saved. This has left some wondering if the judges were right in their decision to use the judge’s save now. Next week, two of the contestants will be getting the boot instead of just one.
