Ryan Seacrest's Casey prediction
Ryan Seacrest thinks Casey James will get through to the final of 'American Idol' even though he is not as vocally talented as his two rival contestants because girls fancy him
Ryan Seacrest thinks Casey James will get through to the final of 'American Idol' because girls fancy him.
The host of the show admits the 27-year-old heartthrob isn't as vocally talented as his fellow contestants, Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox, but his huge fanbase should see him get the vital votes.
He said: "It's going to be interesting to see what happens this week because I think a lot of girls are voting for Casey and if he has an off night, will they continue to vote because they think he's cute?.I think that the best voices are Lee and Crystal."
Judge Simon Cowell is leaving after this series and Ryan - who will continue his hosting duties - would like his fellow radio star Howard Stern to replace him.
He said: "I would love for him to be on the show! Two radio guys! I'm a radio guy."
He also joked he would like 'Golden Girls' actress Betty White to take on Simon's role following the success of the 89-year-old star's presenting stint on 'Saturday Night Live'.
He told America's OK! magazine: "We did not put her on the list but I like that idea!"
