Casey, who was eliminated from Idol last Wednesday (May 19), hasnt had a TV since he was seven years old.
James says lightening struck his moms house way back when and blew out the antenna on the TV and they never got around to buying another one.
He adds, I guess it just wasnt that important to us.
Although James was never able to stay abreast of all the hip, cool trends growing up without a TV, he thinks being unplugged paid off.
It gave him more time to pursue other things, mainly music.
All that practice mustve worked, since the Idol judges praised him all season for being the best guitarist the show has ever had.
The American Idol season finale airs tomorrow (May 25) and Wednesday (May 26) on FOX.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
