Who Went Home on AMERICAN IDOL Tonight?

May 14, 2008 by  

If you’re looking to find out who won the American Idol season finale tonight- Adam or Kris – please click here: Who Won AMERICAN IDOL Tonight? (May 20, 2009)


The finale is set.  The finale two IDOL contestants have been named.  We know one of them will be named David.  But which David?  And will he go up against the other David or Syesha?

Before we get to finding out who went home tonight, can we please talk about the train wreck that is Fantasia?  What in good heavens name was that tonight?  Did she sing?  Was that even in English?  I was horrified.  As was Simon Cowell which was obvious when the camera cut him mid-performance and his facial expression was clearly saying “WTF?”.  If her signing was strong I could get over the tranny look, but everything was all just a big ‘ol mess.

So back to the matters at hand.  Sending home an IDOL.

After viewing the videos of the IDOL’s return home, which included lots of screaming from hometown fans and lots of crying by the IDOLS, it was time for Seacrest to name the two IDOL finalists for this year.

The first contestant safe and singing for us next week was David Archuleta.  Surprise, surprise.  Joining David in the finals is….

David Cook!!  Hell Yeah!

I’ve been a fan of David Cook from day one and I can’t wait to see him rock it out in the finals.

So it will be David vs. David.  Syesha Mercado went home but she should hold her head up high because she had an amazing run and an amazing fan base to keep her in the competition this long.  I don’t think this will be the last we hear from Ms. Mercado.

So let’s look ahead to next week.  I’m not really sure next week’s performances really matter. Don’t you already have your favorite?  Will a good or bad performance really sway the vote next week?  I doubt it.

Who would you like to see win AMERICAN IDOL next week?  Is it David Archuleta or David Cook?  You know where my loyalty lies, but I want to hear from YOU.

    I have to disagree with you GMMR, next week’s performances will matter. I think the playing field is even right now. Next week’s performances will determine the winner, or how many votes they’ll each receive of course.

    My pick, David Archuleta. Hell if David Cook wins, I’ll be O.K. with it too. I love them both.

    I had to change the channel during Fantasia’s “performance” because it was just too horrible to watch. I did, luckily, switch it back in time to watch Simon’s face, as well as the many girls in the audience who were just laughing in disbelief.

    Yay for DC making it to the finale! I’ve been a fan since his audition when he sang Bon Jovi.

    Sabrina, you may be right. But I think that if someone is an Archuleta/Cook fan and wants him to win, then I don’t know if they will change their mind if he blows a song or two next week. I think people are going to vote in the finale on ALL the performances to date.

    I love David Cook!!! But, his performances last night did not seem heartful. I don’t know if he REALLY wants to win. But, I think he is WAY better than Archie(i get embarrassed for him when he speaks)…

    Now I wish I’d watched just to see the Fantasia clip – I’m sure everyone will be talking about it tomorrow! on my way to youtube…

    Just found this site! Took me a like 10 mins to find out who won tonight. I missed the show totally. The American Idol site doesn’t even give the final results yet! (Or half the other sites out there) I will be bookmarking this one! This season had the worst music choices. I hope David Cook wins, yet Dave A. reminds me of a younger version of Marc Anthony. They will both get e record deal no matter what. They are both equally talented.

    David Cook all the way!! Little Archie is really growing on me though… I think he’s precious and I wouldn’t be too upset if he won either.

    I’m not a big fan of AI (though i do watch it every season), but i absolutely adore David Cook. Like you, GMMR, i have been a fan of his from day one. He is amazing and such a talented performer! I honestly can’t think of a performance he’s done where i thought he was bad. I’ve enjoyed every single one of his performances. I know both Davids have recording deals already in the bag and i think Archuleta is wonderful, but i really really hope Cook wins this. That would be the perfect ending of this season for me. I’ve never said this EVER before, but i might actually have to see the AI concert so i can see Cook (or i can just wait until he tours on his own…).

    Anyway, i hope David Cook wins this! He’s the best in my opinion!

    I think you are right, GMMR, and people know who they want to win. My opinion is that David Cook doesn’t and shouldn’t want to win. He’ll have a much better career if he can have his own and not be tied to AI for years. I mean,Fantasia…yeah…and where the heck is Reuben and Taylor Hicks? Meanwhile, Daughtry is doing great, so yeah, coming in second is actually better for DC. Just IMO, I guess. Let David A be ‘groomed’ before America’s eyes. DC will be fine on his own.
    Of course, Justin Guarini may disagree. did you see him? He still looks like Richard Simmons to me.

    I don’t even watch the show, but I want David Cook to win….
    But that is my warped opinion.

    david cook has had some WOW performances for sure. and he’ll probably be a huge star…. but david archuleta WOW’s me everytime he sings. his voice is absolutely beautiful. go David Archuleta!!!

  13. v on May 15th, 2008 10:53 am

    I really want David Cook to win.
    I believe that AI will work with David C. and that he’ll be able to put in his “own” thing, because of the bad results from the other AI titled Idols.
    AI will start losing watchers if it goes all “bubblegum”.
    (Besides, does AI really want to put up with little David’s dad?)
    Kelly Clarkson started it all and rocked out!
    Carrie Underwoods win and success led more views for the following year.
    Now a rocker needs to win and lead the way!
    Sure Davie A is good, but I believe that Cook has been the true American Idol all the way!

    I think everyone who cares and votes has already made up their mind who they will be voting for next week. I think they’re both incredibly talented, but my loyalty lies with my hometown boy, Archuleta. And yes I admit I was one of those screaming girls at his hometown party last week. I may not be 13 years old anymore, but I can sure act like one! 😉

    I think since last years winner was an innocent 17 year old who’s career is so so it will hurt DA. DA has a harder song base to sell records to. I guess the Josh Grobin people will buy them, but DC is more marketable and the producers are well aware of that after loosing all that money from Daughtry.
