Casey James put on such an awkward performance on Tuesday night that he publicly admitted he should go home.
Instead, Kara's former crush didn't even land in the bottom two this week. That dishonor befell Michael Lynche and Aaron Kelly instead.
When all the votes were counted, Kelly's name was finally called. Upon the elimination, the 16-year old simply said: "I've had a blast."
As for the evening's performances, Lady Gaga whipped out "Alejandro" and was her usual, eccentric, entertaining self. Harry Connick Jr. also sang a cover of the Beatles' "And I Love Her," off of his new album.
Finally, the top five regrouped for an anticlimactic medley of Connick's music. No matter how hard they try, these numbers never come across as anything but forced and cheesy.
But back to Aaron: Were you happy with his elimination? Can you believe Lynche was stuck in the bottom pair? Sound off now!
