Just over a week ago, the judges on American Idol turned the season upside down after they used their save they could use only once during the entire season, which saved Casey Abrams and made one of the most memorable results show in the history of the series. Luckily for Abrams, the publicity of the shocking results show just over a week ago helped him get a spike in phone calls from fans, proving that anyone can be sent home at any time. However, Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo were given the boot this past week, which many fans of Idol was fair.
According to In Touch Weekly, however, a relationship has apparently sparked between Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart after the two were left in the bottom two just over a week ago. A source noted that the two are “very touchy-feely” and that they spend the downtime together.The source noted, “they’re always lying on each other when they’re around the other contestants and everybody thinks they’re hooking up.”
As for why Jennifer, Randy and Steven decided to save Abrams, Lopez noted on Ryan Seacrest’s syndicated radio show: “We knew that it was kind of a radical decision because it was so early in the season, but to be quite honest…that is one decision that I haven’t lost one ounce of sleep over. [Casey] is one of our most dynamic performers. He’s so interesting and so talented […] I know it’s crazy, but we had to do it! Now it’s up to America. I really feel we put 11 amazing contestants in front of them, and now it’s [about] who their favorite is, who’s going to be their American Idol. I didn’t realize I was going to fall in love with the contestants the way I have and feel for them the way I do…[but] I feel good putting [the voting] in [viewers’] hands.”
