Casey James, Electric Guitar Stand Out on American Idol

at . Comments

There weren't many reasons to be excited on this week's American Idol male performance show.

We'd vote out at least four contestants from the bunch if we could.

But at least Casey James stood out for a reason other than Kara's awkward jokes about his hotness: the rocker broke out an electric guitar! Sure, the judges might say this is a singing competition, but such a move should help James separate himself from the rest of the mediocre crop of contestants.

Watch his rendition of "I Don't Wanna Be" below:
