American Idol Finalists Flirt with Dolphin

Yup, this headline pretty much sums up what went down in Las Vegas last week between the three remaining American Idol finalists and one very lucky mammal.

Typically, we post an American Idol Power Poll on Monday mornings.

But the competition is down to just five singers, so it seems almost fruitless to rank them. Especially seeing as David Cook and David Archuleta are so clearly on a path to the finals against one another.

American Idol Fan to David Archuleta: Lick Those Lips!

David Archuleta is the most popular finalist among this season's American Idols, at least among the young, female demographic.

Here's disturbing proof of Archuleta's main fan base, as a 10-year old pleads for David's luscious lips to be licked - and her father (we presume) sits idly by, smiling at the adorable, sex-laden yearning of his child:

Like an endorsement for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton from Al Gore, the support of Jordin Sparks should mean a lot to this year's American Idol finalists.

With that in mind, the two heavy favorites - David Cook and David Archuleta - should rest easy tonight.

Sorry Ladies: David Archuleta Has a Girlfriend!

Aside from the performance of David Cook, one of the biggest revelations of last night's episode of American Idol may not have taken place on stage.

Sitting right next to David Archuleta's father in the American Idol audience was ... wait for it ... his girlfriend! Yes, the 17-year-old is off the market!

The American Idol Power Poll: Volume VII

With American Idol having chosen its top 12 singers for the finals, we need to make our weekly Power Poll more of a challenge.

David Archuleta Makes Paula Abdul Cry

It doesn't take much to make Paula Abdul cry. Tears flow for this American Idol judge over her assistant purchasing the wrong shampoo. Or a broken remote control. Or a poorly mixed margarita.

Last night, however, it was the performance of American Idol contestant David Archuleta that left Abdul's mascara a mess.
