American Idol Men: Not Ready to Crown David Archuleta

by at . Comments

On last night's American Idol, four contestants stood up and make one thing clear: David Archuleta hasn't won anything yet!

While everyone's favorite, 17-year old, former Star Search winner did a solid job with the Phil Collins' song "Another Day in Paradise," he wasn't on the receiving end of the evening's strongest praise from judges. That went to the following four hopefuls:

1. David Cook: His version of Lionel Richie's "Hello" was met with raves from Randy Jackson, who said the single could be a hit today. Simon Cowell echoed those sentiments, with: "David, that was a very brave thing to do, and I loved it."

2. David Hernandez decided to play directly into those gay rumors by singing Celine Dione's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now." Gotta admire him for that. While not as beloved as Cook, Hernandez did hear the only words from Simon that anyone could ask for: "You've 100 percent secured a place in the finals."

3. Michael Johns sounded like the original singer of "Don't You Forget About Me." We agreed right away with what Randy said that it was a "good song choice," while even Paula Abdul made sense with: "I'm so glad you are the type of artist who is defining who you are."

4. Jason Castro: Hallelujah! This dreadlocked star calmly performed a stellar version of the son "Hallelujah." Simon summed it up thusly: "I thought it was absolutely brilliant what you just did... You are getting better and better and better. I'm very happy."

Who was your favorite performer of the night?

David Cook could give David Archuleta a run for the title of American idol this season. David Cook is definitely the dark horse of this year's competition. I definitely agreed with Simon, if this remain a talent competition and not a popularity competition. David Cook should win this year.

The stock in several of the Idol males is rising. I'm hopful that one will give David A. a run for the title. I think Jason Castro has a good shot. He's not the most powerful singer, but he has depth in his performance and tone.
