‘Idol’ Eliminee Jason Castro Wants To Chill Out

ROCKWALL, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol cast-off Jason Castro is ready to take a breather – well, almost.

The mellow, dreadlocked contestant was kicked off Idol this past Wednesday (May 7), and is relieved that the primetime performing pressures are finally off his shoulders.

For the last couple weeks the Idol finalists have been singing two songs per night, and Castro admits the pace was hard to keep up with.

He says, “I had a hard time because I couldn’t connect or commit to either song. I couldn’t fall in love with the music – you need time for that. Idol doesn’t give you enough time to groove.”

Now that his Idol days are over, all Castro wants to do is chill out with his friends and family – and, believe it or not, work!

He’s looking forward to spending the summer working with his Dad in his home state of Texas, cleaning and building swimming pools for his dad’s company.

American Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
