Who Do You Think Will Win Tonight?
On American Idol, that is...

First of all, the beginning of last night's show was so hokey! I mean, come on people! I come from a small town, and we do hokey to the extreme...but not on national television.

That said, David Archuletta was amazing. Wonder if it will be an upset?

Just my rambling thoughts this morning...

I think Cook should win, but if Archuletta wins, no big deal. I think Cook is ready to make an album and be on his own so maybe it would be better for him to not win so he won't be tied into a contract with AI. However, I do think he's the better of the two.

I think Archuletta is a fantastic singer, but he just sings. There's no performance, and I find him really boring to watch. And I'm so sick of his humble reactions to praise. Enough already.

They're both good singers, so it could go either way. David Cook did great the last couple of weeks, but then David A really stepped up last night, and did awsome. Either one could win.
I do wonder, however, if it all might be a little too overwhelming for David A. He's still so very young. David Cook is more mature, and probably better able to handle the demands. I just don't know.

I'm rooting for David Cook. He's simply more marketable as a performer. I see David A. as simply a great singer, but don't think he can pull of a real career unless he were to join a "boy band". David Cook is the wise choice to me, but I really can't say. However, I will be watching!

I wanted David A. to win. The kid with the big voice. Maybe it's best he didn't win. I would hate to see him ruined by Hollywood, you know? I was impressed with David Cook and ZZ Top.

I think David A needs some more experience before he's ready for a career. He seems so young and naive on stage. And he really needs to spread his wings and get away from his father. Did you know his father is a demanding stage dad? He was eventually banned from AI rehearsals and from going backstage.

Yeah, he will probably break away one day. I just hope he doesn't go wild when he does get away from his dad. I heard his dad changed some words to a song that David sang and cost the network a lot of money and that's why he was banned.
