Long time, no see Casey Abrams! We are so happy that our 'ginger bear' has returned to American Idol tonight for a guest performance on the Top 9 elimination results show. In honor of the John Lennon and Paul McCartney theme this week, Casey performed "I Saw Her Standing There" on tonight's show.

 

By the way, if you saw that viral video a while back that appeared to show Casey Abrams homeless, covered in filth and leaning on on a giant blue gorilla while playing the guitar...fear not. The whole thing was just a prank to drum up interest in his music video for the single "Get Out" off his debut album. Casey Abrams is not homeless, just creatively amusing.

Since his stint on American Idol, Casey Abrams has been making music and wandering around in support of his self-titled album. He was also the national spokesman for the IBD Icons campaign to raise awareness of inflammatory bowel disease. Casey suffers from ulcerative colitis.

 

Are you happy to see Casey again?
