You have to be in the U.S. to vote for American Idol. Get the word out to Vote for CASEY ABRAMS!
In my opinion the best American Idol contestant this year is either Casey_Abrams (Jewish) or Jacob_Lusk (black Christian). Both are good, just different.
The three judges did a spectacular "save" this year when Casey was voted out by the American public. The judges have the ability to "save" one contestant per year and that is usually at the end of the season. They "saved" Casey way early in the proceedings. Then they each talked about how great a decision they made in "saving Casey." Casey was so sure he was cast away that when they "saved" him, he nearly fainted and went back stage where he was attended by a doctor and said he couldn't stop crying. I believe this is somehow prophetic that Israel will be "saved" by Ha Shem (the Judge) and not destroyed as the American public seemed to want.
Casey was doing his best and "singing for his life" when he was saved by the judges! See, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNiBkgOOQbw

[Middle English saven, from Old French sauver, from Late Latin salvâre, from Latin salvus, safe.]
- sav´able or save´able adjective
- sav´er noun
Synonyms: save, rescue, reclaim, redeem, deliver. These verbs are compared in the sense of freeing a person or thing from danger, evil, confinement, or servitude. Save, the most general, applies to an act of keeping safe or preserving from danger, harm, or the consequences of evil: The smallpox vaccine has saved many lives. A police officer saved the tourist from being cheated. Rescue usually implies saving from immediate harm or danger by direct action: rescue a rare manuscript from a fire; rescued sailors from a torpedoed ship. Reclaim, applied to people, means to bring back, as from error to virtue or to right or proper conduct; it can also mean to return a thing to usefulness or productivity: "To reclaim me from this course of life was the sole cause of his journey to London" (Henry Fielding). "The foundations of the capital were gradually reclaimed from the watery element" (William Hickling Prescott). To redeem is to free someone from captivity or the consequences of sin or error or to save something from pawn or from deterioration or destruction; the term can imply the expenditure of money or effort: The price exacted by the hijackers for redeeming the hostages was extortionate. He redeemed his ring from the pawnbroker. Deliver in this comparison applies to liberating people from something such as misery, peril, error, or evil: "consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them" (George Washington).
