The finals are in the book and it appears that David Archuleta had the better night with is three ballads – one of which he already sang. David Cook went with three songs that showed his stage presence and musical skills, but the judges weren’t feeling his two choices. Cook did take a dig at Archuleta after his final song saying he wanted to sing something different and not do something he had done already. That comment was brought on by Simon suggesting he should have sang one of his early season hits. Archuleta sang Imagine again and his three ballads showed the stage excitement of grass growing. He was good, but that wheezing drives me nuts and I still don’t think he has the ability to move and sing at the same time.
