American Idol Contestant Casey Abrams

On Thursday night's Idol results there was one contestant missing, the phenomenal Casey Abrams, who we've been told is in the hospital for ulcerative colitis, the same condition that admitted him earlier in the competition.


Abrams is by far the most talented contestant on this year's Idol and hearing that there is a chance he may not return is terrible. Ulcerative colities is a painful inflammation of the bowel which can be made worse by stress which is likely caused by the competition.


Abrams has been tweeting with his fans and letting them know that he's feeling better following a blood transfusion.


"Hey guys, thanks for the well wishes, I got some nice fresh blood in me and feeling better. People at Idol & Cedars are treating me real good," and later "My health is always first, but this is my dream, I'm going to keep fighting to stay in."


While his tweets are comforting, there still has been no official word from Idol on whether he will be back on Wednesday. I can only hope that he will as he's an icredible, fresh talent who is the front runner to win this competition.
