Casey James on American Idol: Denver Dark Horse

by at . Comments

With an original song, and a controversial background, Todrick Hall was featured on last night's Dallas-based audition episode of American Idol.

But there was another contestant in the city that impressed the judges enough to garner a ticket to Hollywood, despite not appearing on the actual episode:*

True Idols

Casey James is a Fort Worth resident and the lead singer and guitarist of The Casey James band. It features his brother Billy and a friend named Jacy McCann.

Sources state that James has advanced to this season's top 24, which will be announced on February 17. There's good reason to believe that rumor: all YouTube performances by the singer have been removed, a common step taken by American Idol producers for a contestant that advances in Hollywood.

For now, all we can offer is the following photo of Casey, as well as the news that he'll likely be features on this Wednesday's "Best of the Rest" audition installment.

* UPDATE: James does hail from Texas, but was actually shown on the Denver audition episode, which aired on February 2.

Casey has enormous talent. He and his Casey James Band actually performed on the back patio of my lake home about 8 years ... we had about 50 people there, and we were all spellbound at his incredible talent. I can't wait for him to perform "Pride & Joy" by Stevie Ray Vaughn ... he will bring the house down. His brother (Billy) and mom (Debra) are also incredibly talented musicians! GO CASEY!!!!!!!!!!
