During his time on Idol, Abrams and fellow contestant Haley Reinhart became close mostly because their mutual love of music especially jazz and their shared Idol experience.Their closeness as well as their onstage chemistry while performing the songs Moanin' and I Feel The Earth Move resulted in rumors that claimed that the two were dating, which they each denied in post-Idol interviews they gave after each was eliminated.
Abrams appeared and performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on April 29, 2011, and Live with Regis and Kelly on May 2, 2011.
He is the third finalist to be saved by the judges.
(Matt Giraud from season 8, Michael Lynche from season 9, Jessica Sanchez from season 11, and Sam Woolf from season 13 are the other four) He got eliminated even though they saved him, but he was later eliminated on April 28, 2011 finishing in sixth place.
Abrams and fellow season 10 finalist Haley Reinhart released their rendition of Baby, It's Cold Outside on November 21, 2011, just in time for the holiday season.
