American Idol: David Archuleta came out strong tonight

American Idol: David Archuleta came out strong tonight Tonight was the last chance for the two American Idol finalists to impress the voters, before the finale tomorrow. It all came down to this night and whoever got the best out of it will likely win the Idol, as the last impression will play a big part with the undecided voters (Anyone said Elections?). Before the American Idol began tonight, the odds favored David Cook, although not as strong as they did a few days ago, Cook was listed today with odds to win the American Idol at -170 with the online bookmaker BodogLife. David Archuleta was the underdog, paying out on odds +130 if he wins the Idol. But after tonight, it may be the underdog taking the victory to Utah.

 The first round was the Clive Davis song choice, David Cook singing "I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For" (U2), while Archuleta performed "Don’t Let the Sun go Down on Me" (Elton John). Both Idol hopefuls did a great job in the first segment. But then came the songwriting contest - each David had to choose an entry from the 'Idol" songwriting contest. Cook went with "Dream Big" which unleashed Cowell, who said the performance was not a winning moment. Archuleta sang "In the Moment", which prompted Randy Jackson's claim that David Archuleta can sing the phone book. Then it was the contestant's choice round - David Cook chose "The World I Know" (Collective Soul), but Simon disagrees with the choice; David Archuleta went with "Imagine" and Cowell pretty much declared him  the winner. The judges clearly are predicting David Archuleta to be the American Idol winner, but it's still up to you, the voters. The winner will be announced tomorrow at 8:00pm EST on Fox, don't miss it.
