On the topic of eliminations, how excited is everyone to hear season seven Idol winner David Cook singing this season’s send-off song every week? His cover of Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” debuted last night during Ashthon’s farewell video package.
If you watched the results show last night, you may have noticed that Casey Abrams was absent due to being hospitalized. According to The Hollywood Reporter, an Idol insider says that Casey has ulcerative colitis, which is “an inflammatory bowel disease which infects the lining of the large intestine." According to THR’s source, Casey has had to have two blood transfusions, since being admitted.
After the results show aired last night Casey tweeted, “hey guys, thanks for the well wishes, I got some nice fresh blood in me and feeling better. People at Idol & Cedars are treatin me real good.”
Poor kid, this is the second time in two weeks he’s made a trip to the hospital. Can you imagine if they had booted him off this week ala Christina Christian during season one?
Casey is expected to rejoin the Top 12 next week as they perform songs from everyone’s favorite overused theme week, “Songs From The Year They Were Born.” Season nine Idol winner Lee DeWyze is slated to perform his new single during next Thursday's results show.
What did you think of this week’s results? Did the right person go home, and do you think the girls are in trouble this season?
