Jason Castro goes home to Texas

After impressing millions with indie radio-ready renditions of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "Hallelujah," "Travelin' Thru" and more, Jason Castro, the 21-year-old Texas A&M student, crashed and burned last night with a squeaky "I Shot the Sheriff" and a bungled "Mr. Tambourine Man."

After that debacle, Simon Cowell said it all, advising Jason Castro to pack his suitcases.

And so tonight, the results are predictable, saving Syesha Mercado who joined Jason Castro in the bottom 2. Jason Castro was relieved, mentioning he would not have managed singing three songs. Next week, each three contestants are going to sing 3 songs. I just hope they go pop and contemporary, i just hate this theme nights..

Meanwhile, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest announced that the top three contestants were within 1 million votes of each other, meaning the playing field has evened out somewhat heading into the home stretch.

Jason Castro became controversial while in the Top 8 with these Jason Castro shirtless pics.
