The big night is here. The favorite from the onset, David Archuleta has dispatched all but one singer as he closes in on the American Idol crown. But does Archuleta deserve it - or should David Cook win? That's the subject of today's Face-Off ...
SHOULD DAVID ARCHULETA BE THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL?
YES by Free Britney
To paraphrase a line from the great MC Paul Barman, David Archuleta's voice makes even the most anti-choice granny's panties moist.
That may be a crude way of putting it, but there's no denying that young Archuleta has massive appeal - and is a star in the making.
The American Idol world has seen some amazing talent and some real cuties, but David Archuleta may take the cake on both fronts.
This kid is no novelty act, but a true prodigy.
His formidable fellow finalist, David Cook, has been lauded for his guitar playing, but don't forget that David Archuleta accompanied himself on piano during his renditions of "Another Day in Paradise" and "Angels." He's got game!
Oh, and what an inspirational story! Archuleta once suffered partial vocal paralysis (from which he is still recovering)! He's controlled by his insane father! He couldn't even go to his prom! What more can he do to win our hearts?
He's the only guy not named Jack Daniel to bring Paula Abdul to tears. Just "imagine" what he could do with an entire CD!
