Dozens of Jason Castro supporters gathered at the MSC Flag Room Tuesday to root for their fellow Aggie as he competed as one of American Idol's final five.

Free pizza and doors prizes made the American Idol watch party complete. But there was no question who the star attraction was.

"Aggies are a family," said Texas A&M student Lauren Neuburger. "We all appreciate music so what's not to love about Jason Castro?"

The five finalists sang selections either written or performed by legendary entertainer Neil Diamond. Castro's two selections were "September Morning" and "Forever in Blue Jeans."
