OK, if David Cook doesn't win this year, something is seriously wrong with American Idol. His ORIGINAL rendetion of "You'll always be my baby" by Mariah Carey was Off the Hook tonight!!! He took a song written for and by a female and flipped it and made it sound like it was written for him. TOTALLY FREAKIN AWESOME!!! Jason Castro was good tonight as well. They've got to be the two who will stick it out to the end. David Cook OWNED IT TONIGHT!!! Even Simon gave him praise!! Anyone else agree??????????

David Cook was outstanding once again!! I think he is the most talented on the show this year and he really knows how to make a song his own!! I think David Cook and Carly Smithson will go to the end...but Jason Castro is also very good!! I don't know well have to watch and see!!

I'm not sure Carly has enough of a fan base to carry her through to the end. I do think the other David might. I think Jason has enough to carry him on too. But that's the big question there. You have to remember what happened to Chris Daughtry a few seasons ago. He should have been safe. But.. it all worked out for him in the end. I'm hoping it's Kristy that goes tonight. She should have been gone a long time ago.

I really like Jason Castro myself. That boy can sing anything. I cannot believe that Michael Johns got voted off also. I think Jason has done very well every week with the songs he has had to sing. I hope he wins American Idol. We will see. It all depends on the voters.

Well, My top three are David Cook, Jason Castro and Carly Smithson. Those are my favorites, in that order. I also liked Michael Johns. I really thought Katie Lee should have been eliminated a long time ago. She honnestly shouldn't have made the top twelve in my opinion. But, you know what they say about opinions... "They're like buttholes, we all got one and they all stink"... I'm hoping for a David Cook-Jason Castro finale. That would be soooooooooo rocking. Jason really has grown on me. I still think my favorite performance of his was "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"... I loved the way he was totally relaxed. And that boy has talent oozing out his pores to pick up a new instrument that week and have the guts to get out there and play it. Cudos to him. For David to have taken a song like he did last night and really and truly make it his own, that showed that he can really sing anything. He'll make it work. Make do with what ya got. The boy has talent.

I absolutely agree! Sometimes it's better if they don't win, though, they aren't bound by a contract after the tour. And he will go on to an amazing career with or without a win!! I hope it comes down to David Cook, David A and either Jason or Brooke. I am leaning toward Jason, I think.

Yes, he rocked it. He is a really amazing performer and should probably win it, but look what happened to Daughtry two years ago. Something tells me it could happen again. But I tend to be of the opinion that it might be better for the person's career to NOT win. I really like Jason's originality. David A. has a great singing voice, but I can't imagine even considering buying one of his CDs. They are all really good.... it has been a fun year to watch.

Now talkin bout David Cook , he is awesome! He is always a surprise! Yeah, anyone can say that he will always do the rock thing but he makes sure he nails it right! Nobody thought that he would do a Mariah Song but he actually did. I just love the way he sings... I strongly believe he will be the next American Idol. About the other David, he is good but sometimes the energy just goes down... I don't know why.... hmmm. ..what could be the reason???
