Super Geeked: Casey James at Common Ground
I really began to love Casey James when he performed John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" on American Idol. He made it to the Top 3, and I really enjoyed his Eddie Vedder-esque voice with a country vibe. Plus, I'm not a fan of long hair on guys in general, but Casey's halo of blond curls works.
