The decision to save American Idol's Casey Abrams from elimination sure was a polarizing one, but judge Jennifer Lopez insists it was the right move.
The 41-year-old dished this on Ryan Seacrest 's radio show on Wednesday (March 30), "We knew that it was kind of a radical decision because it was so early in the season, but to be quite honest...that is one decision that I haven't lost one ounce of sleep over."
When J.Lo and fellow judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson convened after America voted Abrams into the bottom two, the verdict was clear-cut,"[Casey] is one of our most dynamic performers. He's so interesting and so talented. I know it's crazy, but we had to do it!"
Even with the risks – the judges are now out of saves for the rest of the season and Lopez says the timing was perfect,"I feel really good about that, too. Now, it's up to America. I really feel we've put 11 amazing contestants in front of them and now it's [a question of] who they're favorite is, who's going to be their American Idol. I feel really good about putting that in their hands."
