American Idol hopeful Casey Bishop has dropped her debut single, less than a week after being voted off the show.

The teenager took to social media on Friday to share that she would be releasing the video for the single Love Me, Leave Me, and would "be online to talk" with her fans.

Casey sang the song during the semi-final on Sunday 16 May but it wasn't enough to send her through the show.

"Here before she wins her first grammy! Don't stop the momentum! Congratulations!!" commented another.

"We're two miles from Whisky a Go Go, the Roxy, all the bars the ’80s hair metal used to play," shpw judge Luke Bryan exclaimed after the performance.

"Let's just go kick the door in, take Casey, bring her in, and have a show, an encore!”

Casey also performed a duet of Break My Heart Again with fellow hopeful Chayce Beckham, and chose Wish You Were Gay by Billie Eilish for her Personal Idol performance.
