Casey Abrams is singing Maroon 5's "Harder to Breathe" on "American Idol." It's amazing how comfortable this year's finalists are on stage. They all do their thing, no fear.
He's emoting pure joy. He's got a totally intense look, and the song has an edge to it. Not a totally natural feel to it, some of it has to do with how he walks the stage like a robot. But it's still fun to listen to.
Wow, he sings the last line to Jennifer Lopez, gives her a big, loud kiss on the cheek. She's beaming. Steven Tyler screams, "you did what I've been trying to do for four months!" Bedlam. It's hilarious.
"Casey got soft lips" she says afterward. "I love it." Such a rock star move.
"Always it's about surprise, surprise, surprise" says Randy Jackson. Loves how he always takes chances.
"You already are a cult hero," says Steven Tyler, before going off on a swearing rant. Hmm, pretty sure there are kids in the audience.
