Casey Abrams performed live on American Idol 2013 last night and proved he’s still just as wild-eyed and crazy as ever with his rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There.” Of course he also reminded me of why he didn’t make it to the finale.
There’s no denying that Abrams applies a niche styling to his music and has been successful in doing so, but going niche isn’t going to reach the same broad market like it takes to win American Idol. All the same it’s fun to see someone doing something different with such an established song rather than rolling out an exact copy.
Casey Abrams performing “I Saw Her Standing There”:
Since Casey wasn’t the only American Idol alumni on stage last night it’s worth asking, who did it better? Were you more impressed by Casey’s delivery or Jessica Sanchez’s debut of “Tonight”?
Any hopes for who we might see in the upcoming episodes of American Idol 2013 when it comes to returning Hopefuls taking the stage?
