Casey Abrams, the stand up bass-playing, bearded and bushy-haired Seth Rogen lookalike called "sexy" by Jennifer Lopez on 'American Idol,' was hospitalized, missing Thursday night's show. This was the second time that Abrams has been admitted to the hospital during the course of the competition.
During the show's opening, host Ryan Seacrest said, "You'll notice that Casey is missing from the group. He is unfortunately sick and in the hospital right now. We know you're watching buddy, feel better – shout out to the nurses. Get back here soon, okay?"
