I thought this season of American Idol was really good. There were SO MANY memorable performances and there were a ton of mega-talented singers on the show! But there were two performances last night at the finale in particular that really stood out to me. The first one was the performance with Casey Bishop from Estero, Florida and Luke Bryan. Casey is a rocker through and through and she held tight to her roots while Luke Bryan stepped out of his Country box to duet with her on the Bon Jovi hit "Living On A Prayer." You'll remember during the auditions that Luke predicted Casey would win American Idol. Well, his prediction didn't come true as she finished fourth, but something tells me that the world is not done hearing from Casey Bishop. This girl is great!
Another fantastic performance was when eventual winner Chayce Beckham sang "Forever After All" with Luke Combs. Of course, "Forever After All" is Luke's latest hit.
When you see that performance with Chayce and Luke and think about all of Chayce's other performances this season, it's easy to see how he won. Congratulations to Chayce, Casey, and all of the contestants that made it to Hollywood this season! Well done!
