But you probably won't be surprised that Casey James was sent back to Texas.
While James didn't survive the Idol voting process, he did talk about another feat -- surviving a motorcycle accident and learning to play guitar again after doctors told him he wouldn't be able to do it anymore.
Casey James' risky behavior has already been making the Internet rounds, complete with a mug shot from his DUI. It sounds like maybe he shouldn't have been allowed on the road in his teens and early 20s.
Let's hope he's grown up and sobered up and learned valuable lessons from his youth. Even though we all knew he didn't have a shot at winning American Idol this year, he's still got a bright future if he can keep it on the road.
