Casey Bishop could become the youngest ‘American Idol’ Season 19 finalist with her original song ‘Love Me, Leave Me’
“I really don’t have any performing experience,” Casey Bishop, a semifinalist on “American Idol,” admitted during her Ojai audition. “The majority of people who know I enjoy singing are my friends. That is essentially it.” The 16-year-old high school student from Estero, Florida (she was 15 when she auditioned) earned her spot on the ABC reality television competition by performing “Live Wire” and “My Funny Valentine” for judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan. On Sunday, May 16, Bishop will compete for a spot in the Season 19 finale against Chayce Beckham, Grace Kinstler, and Willie Spence.
On this upcoming episode, each artist will perform three songs, including a brand new single produced exclusively for them. Bishop’s original track is titled “Love Me, Leave Me,” which she produced alongside Grammy winner Ian Fitchuk. Additionally, the youngster will perform the Billie Eilish hit “wish you were gay” and a duet of “Break My Heart Again” with guest mentor FINNEAS.

To date, her set list includes “She Talks to Angels” (Showstopper), “Decode” (Top 24), “Wish You Were Here” (Top 24) with Brandon Boyd, “Black Hole Sun” (Top 16), “The House of the Rising Sun” (Top 16), “Over the Rainbow” (Top 12), “When She Loved Me” (Top 10), “Paradise” (Top 7) and “Ironic” (Top 7).

At the age of 16, Bishop became one of the show’s youngest finalists, following in the footsteps of Diana DeGarmo (Season 3), Lauren Alaina (Season 10) and Jessica Sanchez (Season 11). If Bishop wins, she will become the franchise’s youngest winner. Bryan made a bold prediction on behalf of the judging panel that Bishop would win the prize following her first audition. Richie has enjoyed watching Bishop develop as a performer, and Perry adores the fact that nobody knew Bishop could sing before she appeared on “American Idol.”
