The inspirational song is a perfect fit for the 17-year-old country crooner, and should play well on country stations across the U.S.

Casey Abrams Eliminated From ‘American Idol’

And then there were five.

Ryan Seacrest told us at the top of the show that we would be disappointed with the outcome of tonight's results - and he wasn't wrong: In somewhat of a shocker, Casey Abrams was eliminated from 'American Idol.'

Of course, the elimination wasn't totally surprising, as Casey was actually eliminated on a previous episode. (He was then saved by the judges.) Even so, it didn't feel like it was his time to go, especially after his crowd-pleasing performance on Wednesday. Then again, it's a talented group of six, so tonight's results were guaranteed to have at least some shock value.

Stefano Langone Eliminated From ‘American Idol’

On Wednesday night, Jennifer Lopez said, "It's getting down to the wire and it's time to bring out the big guns." That statement will become more relevant as each week goes by.

We're now down to the top 6, as 'American Idol's' wild card pick, Stefano Langone -- who made it very far in the competition after nearly being eliminated a handful of times -- was eliminated from competition on Thursday.

It was another jam-packed elimination show, as we got to see the contestants go to an L.A. Dodgers game, have some fun at bowling, get the full spa treatment and lasso some clouds. And if that wasn't enough, we also saw performances from 'Idol' season 7 winner David Cook and superstars Katy Perry and Kanye West.

Paul McDonald Eliminated From ‘American Idol’

J. Lo said it best when she said, "You gotta stop singing to stay; you gotta start singing to win."

It was a good piece of advice, but unfortunately for Paul McDonald, it came a little too late: Paul's quirky style and unique soft voice have been eliminated from 'American Idol,' according to PopCrush. There's a lot of talent on the show this year, so as the weeks go by, main contenders will have to be cast off the show. That's life on 'American Idol.'

James Durbin Sets American Idol Ablaze with “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” [VIDEO]

I'm a huge Elton John fan, so I was eager to see this year's crop of American Idol hopefuls take on the tunes of Elton John and Bernie Taupin.  And they didn't disappoint. (Although, once again this year no one attempted by favorite, "Mona Lisa's And Mad Hatters.")

The performance that garnered the most attention was James Durbin's rockin' take on one of the rockin'-est songs in the Elton catalogue, "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting."  He channels Hendrix with his backbend and flames and pulls of the performance I'll be most likely to remember from this season.
