More on the whole American Idol “slide” later, but tonight pitts Cookie against Archie. The first all male final since Ruben vs. Clay. I think everyone that I know is clearly on the side of the adult, but I could be over-estimating.
As if I could like David A. any less, we find out that his father is a stage dad who shamelessly promotes his kid to the point of aggravating the AI producers. Now, if the AI producers are displeased with your over-promotion, you know you have a problem.
Here’s my favorite performances of each. You tell me.
Billie Jean, David Cook
Imagine, David Archuleta
My prediction? It’s a done deal. David Cook is the 2008 American Idol. But, where he goes from here, I just don’t know. I’m envisioning mediocre sellers for their debut CDs as AI will pimp them for all they can get, but the sophomore efforts will be dismal for both Cook and Archuleta.
There’s always Broadway.
