American Idol Contestant Butchers Nirvana Song [VIDEOS]

YouTube

For the first time ever, a contestant on American Idol sang a song from ’90s grunge-gods Nirvana. Casey Abrams, who missed a show last week when he was hospitalized for a bowel condition, kept the drama going on Wednesday night’s telecast with his out-of-left-field selection of  “Smell’s Like Teen Spirit.”

That video plus another  cover of the song that you might have never heard before after the jump.

The reactions from judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson to Abrams’ performance were very positive. Jennifer Lopez was a bit less enthusiastic, although she stated she still “loved” Abrams.

My reaction is that it flat out sucked and he should be arrested for murdering the song! Check out the video of the song and judge for yourself and leave your comments at the bottom.

Now, check out this version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” that Paul Anka did.  I know, I know, it’s not rock, metal, etc, but in my opinino, this is effing cool! Check this out!
