And then there were three. After a season-high 37 million votes, another American Idol hopeful’s journey came to an end Wednesday night.
As Ryan Seacrest read the results, Casey was the first singer sent back to safety. After a little more deliberation, Ryan also told Lee he would get a chance to return next week which left Crystal Bowersox and Michael Lynche in the hot seat. Crystal was quickly added to the safety zone which came as no surprise since she has been a frontrunner since the beginning.
