    Casey James, “I Don’t Wanna Be” by Gavin Degraw, 8/10, star quality

    star quality??? because he has blonde hair and can play the guitar? did you pay attention at all on how horrible his voice sounded singing this song? especially such a well known song to AI viewers – so many great renditions, including the original (hellllo gavin degraw) but seriously. no no no.

    i think my favorite this season is lee dewyze.
