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 couldnt connect or commit to either song. I couldnt fall in love with the music you need time for that. Idol doesnt 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!
Hes looking forward to spending the summer working with his Dad in his home state of Texas, cleaning and building swimming pools for his dads company.
American Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
