Charlie Askew Performs on American Idol Results Show, Finds Redemption

by at . Comments

Charlie Askew performed live on Thursday's American Idol results show, just week after a performance that sank his dreams of winning Season 12.

Here's Askew's rendition of "Sky Blue Diamond" from last night:

While he did not advance, Charlie Askew was the big story last week, butchering "Mama" by Genesis and then breaking down on stage in a sad, profound moment.

Ryan Seacrest, pro's pro that he is, handled it brilliantly, telling Charlie:

“You’ve got some friends here. We appreciate your courage and your honesty. There’s nothing easy about having those feelings inside and having to do that tonight,"

Askew proved him right last night, no doubt.

Meanwhile, Curtis Finch Jr. was ousted.


Idol OWED that kid a chance at redemption after what happened to him on that show. The mentors and stylists failed Charlie when they allowed him to come out and perform a big crazy rock number in that ridiculous get-up. The judges were especially harsh, too. Pure carnage. I don't know if Charlie will get a spot on the tour, but he did a nice job at the piano last night, when he went back to doing what he does best.
