Texas A&M student Jason Castro is still in the running to become the next American Idol.
The singer made it to the final five on the hit show Wednesday night despite receiving critical comments from Idol judges on Tuesday after his performance of "Memories" by Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Cats.
Friends gathered at Calloway House Tuesday night to watch Castro. The 20-year-old lived there last year.
Contestants Carly Smithson and Syesha Mercado were in the bottom two when the millions of votes were counted, with Smithson being voted off.
