Casey James of 'American Idol' performs on Lennon & McCartney Night
Singer: Casey James
Song: "Lawdy Miss Clawdy"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Ever wonder how "Lawdy Miss Clowdy" would sound if the Counting Crows recorded it? Now we know! After doing Eddie Vedder last week, Casey James making a commanding case that he just the best '90s Tribute Band singer EVER! [Or at least he may be the best '90s Tribute Band singer since Chris Daughtry.] Casey doesn't try to rock the full stage. He goes out on a platform and the women mill around. It's a fitting end to a night of so-so, modestly entertaining performances on Elvis Night.
Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon Say: Randy didn't see anything different, but still found it sold. That fell short of brilliance for Kara. Simon thought it was a good vocal for Casey, but a forgettable performance.
