'American Idol' Finalist Hospitalized

2/23/2011 10:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Abrams -- one of the top 24 finalists on "American Idol" -- was rushed to a hospital moments ago after complaining of severe stomach pains ... TMZ has learned.

Casey Abrams Hospitalized

Sources connected to the show tell us ... 19-year-old Abrams was rehearsing at CBS Television City when he began to feel sick.

We're told Abrams was taken to a nearby hospital -- where he's expected to stay overnight ... possibly longer.

And it gets worse -- now that Abrams has made the top 24, he's scheduled to tape a performance on Friday ... along with the rest of the top 12 men. But if Abrams is not well enough to take the stage on Friday, we're told he will be eliminated from the competition.

Abrams is currently being examined by doctors.

Okay seriously... if you didn't know he was going to make the top 24, you haven't been watching. It was clear even from his audition he was going through.

I hope he gets better though. It would be a shame if he had to leave the show. I think he'll be in the top 3. Lauren Alaina's gonna win the whole thing though.

Conspiracy theory people will have a field day with this considering that Jessica girl got so sick she had to drop out.
