American Idol Shocker: Who Got Voted Out?

by at . Comments

Three weeks into the American Idol finals, we were treated to our first surprise. Our first shock, really.

Following an off night on Wednesday for a couple of THG favorites - Thia Megia and Casey Abrams - they found themselves in the bottom three along with Stefano Langone. It was a scary few moments for those of us who love Thia's voice and Casey's originality.

In the end, Megia and Langone were told to join the other, safe contestants, while millions of jaws crashed to the floor when Ryan told Casey he had been voted out. He went back to "I Don't Need No Doctor" in an attempt to be saved, but was told a few lines into the performance to stop because...

Saving Casey

Did the judges make the right choice this week?

... the panel voted unanimously to save him!

"We just want you to get back to being the musician that you are," Jennifer said. "No more antics... You deserve to be here."

Two finalists will be voted out next Thursday, as Abrams stood on stage, truly taken aback and responding: "I thought that they wouldn't use the save, because there's 11 people. It's unreal. I started singing, and the fact that you cut it scared the stuff out of me."

Ther is absolutly NO WAY Casey should have been voted off!! He has great talent. It seems America likes people like Celine Dion and Bryan Adams? Canada has it right we deported them.

casey needs a makeover from the neck up....he looks like he just stepped off the island in 'survivor'. Appearance counts for part of the competition....he is hard on the eyes...he may not need the doctor, but a stylist/groomer would definately be of some benefit!

naima need to leave like yesterday..she cannot sing she show off to much..she begging to hard....

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
