"American Idol" is about to cut to five. It's weird. They come back from commercial break and suddenly Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery and Casey Abrams are standing up there by themselves and Ryan's talking. No more teasing this out.
Jacob's as surprised as anyone when Ryan tells him he's safe. And then right after that Casey is kicked off.
Something must've gone wrong. They really rushed the ending.
Ah, well. Glad to see Casey go. He became repetitive with his growling and self-indulgence.
But what an odd night. Scotty in the bottom three? Really?! After what was probably his best night of the season?!
Somewhere Pia Toscano is nodding her head.
