I voted that Syesha will go home tonight, regardless of the quality of the performances (or lack thereof). However, if for some reason one of the guys gets the book, she has a good chance of winning the whole thing since I don't think the two Davids have similar fanbases.

Each singer will sing three songs tonight, their choice, producers choice, and judges choice. David Cook received his choice via text message while he was being interviewed on TV… Simon Cowell chose Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”. For what it’s worth, Leona Lewis also sang that song on “The X Factor”.

The rest of these are rumors so I’ll spoilerize them:

Spoiler:
David Cook: His choice: Collective Soul’s “The World I Know.” Producer’s choice: “American Woman”, originally by The Guess Who.

David Archuleta: Judges choice: Billy Joel’s “And So It Goes”.

Syesha Mercado: Judges choice: something by Alicia Keys

If rumors are true, love the song choice for David A.

The public would do him a huge favor by not letting him win this thing till he matures and shakes his psycho dad.

Syesha is going home, no doubt. She's been in the bottom 3 how many times? At this point it's a popularity contest, and she's just not as popular as the Davids.

What?! No "Daddy's Choice" for Giggles?

But last week, Syesha was within 2 million votes of the first place vote getter, and just 1 million shy of 2nd place. So, depending on how the pothead vote goes, you just never know.

Since when do they release the actual vote totals per contestant? Or did they say that during the results show (I only watch the end of those).

Randy's pick for Syesha is a song she sang on the short-lived ABC talent show 'The One.' That's a soft-lob for her.

Makes you wonder if the producers are planning to sandbag Archie because of DaddyGate. I can't imagine they want to deal with him during contract neogitations if his son won the whole shebang.

Ryan announced last Wednesday that the top 3 votegetters were within a million votes of one another. So hypothetically speaking, if Cook got 27 million votes, Archie got 26 million votes, and Syesha got 25 million votes. That left 22 million votes for Dreds.

I've been jokingly reverse-jinxing Syesha every week, but there's no point in even watching this episode. She's gone no matter what happens. I'm happy she made it this far, though, and I hope she parlays this experience into something meaningful.

The judges' pick for Archie is perfect for him. Hopefully he doesn't win, because we'll almost certainly be reading about something tragic that's happened to him within 2 years. He's too young and too sheltered for it not to go horribly wrong.

I'm not convinced that Syesha will be going home, I'll have to wait until after I see their performances. I think that the Brooke White fans have gravitated to her, plus I see more of Jason Castro's fans going to her and David Cook than to David Archuleta.

Plus there'll be some backlash against David Archuleta's dad. Having Syesha advance is a very real possibility.

My prediction is that David A. does go home.

I have to agree with the anti-Giggles.

I think that there is going to be some massive backlash to this and he'll be sent packing tomorrow.

Question:

Are the AMERICAN IDOLS musicians?

Can you regard them as "artists"? Where do they fall in the Whitney Houston / Mariah Carey category?

Here's Archuleta and his dad at a concert when he went back home to Utah last week:



That man is just creepy.

Everytihng about that picture enforces what I already believed: that Daddy Archuleta beats Lil' Davey, Joe Jackson style, if he screws up.

The kid is a Behind the Music special waiting to happen.

Doesn't that mean there were a million votes separating the top three? That would mean hypothetically if Cook got 27 million, Syesha got 26 million and Archie got something in between.

I'm not convinced that Syesha will go home, she may get the Castro fans voting for her. I have a feeling Cook may leave, they have yet to have that one surprise elimination this season.

Some folks thought the Aussie guy was a surprise elimination.
