Well Done, America! You Chose The Right Top 3 Idols!

So long, Big Mike! Sorry to see you go, but I’m glad Casey James is sticking around instead!

Hasta la vista, Big Mikey! I seriously thought Casey James was about to be given the boot on American Idol May 12, but thankfully America voted wisely, and the good-lookin’ Texan in still in the competition!

Elimination night was a little sleepy for me, dawg. The drama factor wasn’t there. No one seemed all that upset that the 26-year-old Floridian was leaving the Idol building, despite an emotional moment holding his baby girl – all captured on camera, natch.

Both Casey 27, and Crystal Bowersox, 24, were cool as cucumbers as they were saved. Maybe they were doing cartwheels inside, but I didn’t see it. But then, that’s what I like about both of them.

Lee DeWyze, of course, showed enough emotion for everyone involved. Homeboy is the new Ryan Seacrest! He soothed Big Mike, gave Crystal hugs, fist-pumped Casey AND still managed to make a young blond fan named Angela feel special when he singled her out of the audience and gave her a ‘Chicks dig Lee’ poster.

I’m still on the fence about Lee’s sex appeal, but I AM absolutely certain of one thing: that Crystal/Lee showdown you’ve all been predicting? It’s in the bag.
