Casey James performs at the Shoreline Amphitheatre during the American Idol Tour on Aug. 14, 2010

The curtain comes down, maybe in a lot of ways, on the American Idol Summer Tour and the Top 10 Idol finalists from Season 9 on Tuesday in Indianapolis.

Just a hunch, but winner Lee DeWyze and runnerup Crystal Bowersox will probably have at least a run at a career. The other 8? Well, that remains to be seen.

So, before they fade away from our consciousness and the talk-show circuit here is a look – literally – one last time as they performed earlier this month at the Shoreline in Mountain View.

This time next year will you remember Didi or Big Mike or Casey? We’ll see.

Funny how things work out, No. 3 finisher Casey has a recording contract and Kara doesn’t have an Idol gig any longer. How far can he go in the world of country music? We shall see….
