American Idol Contestant Casey Abrams Is in the Hospital Again

Only twelve contestants appeared on Thursday night's American Idol elimination episode. That's because 20-year-old Casey Abrams — who sang Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help From My Friends" the night before — was in the hospital with stomach issues. This is the second time Abrams has been hospitalized since the show began. He complained of stomach problems three weeks ago and received a blood transfusion. Idol host Ryan Seacrest wouldn't give any further details on Abrams's condition. [E!]
