Casey Abrams + His Stand Up Bass Perform ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ on ‘American Idol’
On last night's (March 20) episode of Season 12 of 'American Idol,' the Top 9 contestants were tasked with performing songs by the Beatles. The theme continued tonight (March 21), as Season 10 contestant Casey Abrams, who was a fan and judge favorite when he competed, returned to the stage with his standup bass to perform a jazzy, bluesy, smoky version of 'I Saw Her Standing There.'
Abrams was so unique during his season for the way he scatted and incorporated organic forms of music into his renditions. He was a risk taker in 2011 and we're glad to report that's still his stock in trade.
It was a fun, hole-in-the-wall rendition of a Beatles' classic and it was Abrams-ized.
