Casey Abrams was able to escape being sent home after judges used their save to keep him going into the Top 11, but unfortunately, his time on American Idol ended last night. Abrams wasn’t too surprised, however. He told ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest‘ that he knew he would be sent home, he was “feeling it.”

Abrams said he was a little weary after a duet with fellow contestant, Haley Reinhart, and that may have affected his performance. However, Abrams said he had a “blast performing, and went out with a bang.”

During his very last ‘Idol’ performance, Abrams was caught locking eyes with Reinhart. When Seacrest asked if there was something more to that look, Abrams responded “No, no. That look is exactly what it looks like. It’s just ‘hey, i’m going to miss you. And i’m going to miss singing jazzy duets with you.'”

Abrams said his goal was to make it to the top 6, and that’s exactly what he did. He will be performing his first post-idol performance at the KIIS-FM studios today. He says his only request he wants while performing are hot dogs.
