American Idol Recap: Davids March Toward Destiny

by at . Comments

We've been blown away by Syesha Mercado over the last few weeks. Left for dead episodes ago, the singer should be proud of herself no matter how she finishes on American Idol.

After last night's performances, though, it would take a Michael Johns-like shocker to see her end the season better than third.

The two Davids - David Cook and David Archuleta - stood out on a night that featured a whopping three songs by each artist. Our favorite of the evening was Cook singing "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."

David Cook doesn't want to miss a thing. And we don't want to miss a single David Cook performance.

Do you agree that Cook was the best of the night? Or were you most impressed by Archuleta's rendition of "And So It Goes," one Paula Abdul deemed "a beautiful performance"?

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
