Relive all of Wednesday night's dreadful performances for the 'Idol' men in gallery form
Casey James of 'American Idol' performs
Singer: Casey James
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Ladies Love Casey James. I mean, they get weak at the knees watching him brush his hair. And he plays into every bit of it, strumming his guitar, with his shirt half-unbuttoned, Simon-style. He's much too amused by the swooning and his vocals are thin and uninspiring. But who cares when he's winking at the camera through his flaxen locks? My boy Casey is gettin' laid tonight, but you'd better keep Kara far, far away.
Ellen, Randy, Kara and Simon Say: The judges get far away from Kara and let her start. "Casey, I don't recognize you with your shirt on," Kara says. Amazingly, Kara noticed that Casey was pitching. "I could feel Kara undressing you with her eyes," Ellen cracks. Randy delivers his advice "from one dude to another," and says he likes him also "but not in that way." "You are eye candy, but you're also ear candy," Kara says, trying desperately to retain her dignity. Simon thinks it was the right song and came across as honest and sincere. Simon adds, "Obviously the cougar here likes you." Ryan's already joking about making Kara's HR meeting a "two-hour live event." It's so cute that "Idol" can joke about sex scandals between judges and contestants. Because that could never possibly happen.
