Down to the final four, and it seems pretty obvious who is being booted tonight. Last night Jason Castro really screwed things up. As if attempting Bob Marley weren't bad enough (even though we know it's his thing) but forgetting the words . . . again. I could understand if it was Broadway week or something, but it was a Bob Dylan song, so he should have nailed it. At least he remained strong while taking the wrath from the judges, which included Simon's tip to pack his bags (ouch). At this point I think he wants to go home.
David Cook picked two great songs, but I expected a greater performance from him. The judges liked his second performance more, but it was still not as exciting as his competition.
Syesha stepped it up again this week. I definitely did not think she was going to be the last girl standing, and the drama last night was fabulous for the final four. Her first song Simon said was bad karaoke, but the second song he loved and agreed with Paula's glowing review. Syesha is clearly more confident performing each week, and this is the best time to show major improvements like she has done.
David Archuleta was loved by the judges once again, for his renditions of "Stand By Me" and "Love Me Tender." Great songs and amazing voice. He doesn't need to win — at this point he will probably outsell this year's contestants since his voice is so perfect to record, but I so can't imagine him as the next American Idol.
