It’s apparently time for the final two to rumble.
David Archuleta won the coin toss and has decided to go second.
Song: I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking for by U2
Randy: Great way to start. Hot but don’t know if you did everything you could with it.
Paula: We have found what we’re looking for.
Simon: Phenomenal taking into account how tense you looked at the top of the show.
Song: Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me by Elton John
Randy: One of the best performances of this whole season. Flawless. Unbelievably molten hot.
Paula: Heart still pounding. Chills up and down my arms.
Simon: Okay last week but arguably your best so far this week. Round one goes to Archuleta.
For the second song, the guys will pick the song they want to perform the most out of America’s 10 favorite entries from the songwriting contest. May be some indication of the type of music we can expect from them when they make their albums.
Song: Dream Big
Randy: Song was just okay, but you were singing your face off.
Paula: Great way to take a song we don’t know and fall in love with it.
Simon: Bit of a lightweight. Made the most of what you had. Didn’t feel like a winning moment. 6.5 out of 10.
Song: In This Moment
Randy: Wasn’t crazy about the song again, but you’re in the zone.
Paula: On fire tonight. Pure magic.
Simon: Chose the better song. Round two goes to David Archuleta.
Song: The World I Know by Collective Soul
Randy: Showing people a lot of different sides of David Cook. Very nice sensitive side.
Paula: Integrity and originality. I truly applaud you.
Simon: One of the nicest, most sincere contestants. Beautiful song but completely and utterly the wrong song choice.
Song: Imagine by John Lennon
Randy: So good tonight. Exactly what this show about. The best singer of season 7 is right there.
Paula: Left me speechless. Stunning.
Simon: You came out here to win, and what we have witnessed is a knockout.
David Cook’s numbers: 1-866-IDOLS-01, 1-866-IDOLS-03, 1-866-IDOLS-05
David Archuleta’s numbers: 1-866-IDOLS-02, 1-866-IDOLS-04, 1-866-IDOLS-06
That wraps up the final night of performances, and tomorrow night we will find out who the American Idol 7 winner is. Phone lines will be open for voting for the next four hours.
