Abrams can't cheat elimination twice on 'American Idol'

LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Casey Abrams was given the heave-ho on "American Idol."

The eccentric 20-year-old musician-singer of Idyllwild, Calif., received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest Thursday after his jazzy interpretation of "Hi-De-Ho" on Wednesday's evening of Carole King tunes. Abrams was previously rescued by the show's judges with their one-time-only power, but there was no helping him this time.

Abrams was joined in the bottom three by Jacob Lusk, the booming 23-year-old vocalist from Compton, Calif., who grooved to "Oh No Not My Baby," and Scotty McCreery, the deep-voiced 17-year-old country crooner of Garner, N.C., who delighted with "You've Got a Friend."

Another singer will be eliminated next week.
