American Idol - Casey James one of the best

Despite the fact that he went out this week I still think Casey James is one of the best American Idol contestants I have seen to have made the top 12.

The top three in my list are Carrie Underwood, David Archuleta and him Casey James. It is hard to say who is the best of these three as each of them have their own strengths. Both Carrie Underwood and David Archuleta have strong voices and hardly faltered in any of their songs while Casey actually had some problems with one of the songs of Frank Sinatra. Nevertheless he was able to switch things up better than the other two in many songs.

While Carrie and David had a goody two shoes personality, it was not so with Casey. He would come across as more of a Robin Hood personality - he was prepared to take out his shirt in the competition and yet at the same time was able to handle many difficult situations well. Basically Carrie and David could come across as boring.

In short if you had to vote for a nice guy who isn't perfect this year, it had to be him. I still think he deserved to win it. Alas it was not so and he had to go this week. Still I felt some sadness when he had left. More so than when David Archuleta lost two years ago.
