Jason Castro: “I’m kind of ready to go home”

American Idol 7 finalist Jason Castro didn’t get voted out on Wednesday, but he’s ready to go home.

On Monday, well before the performance show, he told Entertainment Weekly, “What happens happens. I’ll sing and if people like it, they like it. And if they don’t, they don’t. I’m kind of ready to go home.”

He’s so ready to go home that he basically blew off practicing. The magazine reports that “his brother and a friend had visited over the weekend and that his Saturday meeting with Diamond had gone ‘really bad’ because he didn’t yet know his songs.”

Why the ambivalence? “It’s been overwhelming. I got 150 balloons yesterday delivered to the studio because people heard I was sick last week. That’s cool, but that’s just weird,” Jason said.
