In a move that should have surprised no one, voters opted to keep Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox on through next week’s finale of American Idol. Thus, last night’s results show signaled the on-screen demise of guitar-strumming heartthrob Casey James, who’s now packing it up to return home to Cool, Texas—well, until the Idol summer tour kicks off, that is. After the jump: watch Casey get the boot, plus Justin Bieber and Travis Garland’s performances on last night’s American Idol.
Voters choose Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox for the Season 9 finale. (Note that Crystal seems to be in shock after the announcement, and repeatedly asks Ryan Seacrest if she’s safe. Maybe one of her dreads got stuck in her ear?)
Former NLT member Travis Garland—who Perez Hilton declared to be “better than Justin Timberlake”—offers up his single “Believe.”
Who do you think gave the better performance last night—Justin or Travis? And more importantly, did America get it right by putting Crystal and Lee through to the finale? Vote in our poll on the right sidebar and let us know!
