Casey Abrams, an American Idol front runner, is not on the elimination show tonight, as you may have noticed. At the beginning of the show, Ryan Seacrest announced that Casey Abrams would not appear on American Idol tonight because he is back in the hospital. What is wrong with Casey Abrams? Why is he in the hospital again?
Casey Abrams was hospitalized a couple weeks ago for severe stomach pain, and now he has been admitted again for what has been diagnosed as a bleeding ulcer. There is speculation that the stress that goes along with being a contestant on American Idol is what caused the ulcer to flare up.
Even though he is recovering in the hospital, it was just announced that Casey Abrams is safe in the American Idol competition for at least another week. Let’s hope he recovers quickly and the rest of his American Idol journey is much smoother!
