Casey James falls surprisingly flat on 'American Idol'

Casey James closes "American Idol" with "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," which I think is an odd choice. Adam Lambert likes it but wants him to make it more interesting though.

Hmm, he does a good Elvis, looks very confident, slightly mischevious. I'm not big into this song, but he's passionate and totally at ease performing it. Gets that you have to be a bit exaggerated with the King and can't just sing it straight but he's not great, though.

Randy thought it was fine, "solid." Ellen says there was no excitement. Kara says "that fell short for me." Simon calls it a "wasted opportunity with a completely forgettable song."
