Wow, I watch American Idol and wake up reading all sorts of rumors about a few of our Idol contestants. One of the rumors flying around is that an Idol contestant is pregnant. Alleged mom to be? Carly Smithson. Is that why she looked like a deer in headlights after her performance and Simon said she was too tense? Apparently some old news that I'm just hearing is that David Archuleta's dad, Jeff, is a stage dad from Hades. These rumors state that Jeff Archuleta screams at David backstage, and he also harassed contestants on Star Search, getting him kicked off the lot! Do we already have our American Idol winner? According to the buzz around the Net we do, and his name is David Cook. He put a total original spin on the song Billie Jean, and it definitely worked! So, let's get to the recap of last night's "Year They Were Born" show: Ramiele Malubay was born on 9-6-87, and she sang Alone by Heart. Sort of boring, then she kicked it up, but I guess she was either sick or she lost her voice.
  • Randy said it wasn't the right song choice.
  • Paula said she hopes Ramiele will stay.
  • Simon said it wasn't as bad as Randy thought and she will make it through. Then him and Randy got into it a bit. lol
Jason Castro was born on 3-31-87, and he sang Fragile by Sting. I wasn't impressed. He is either a squeaker, or he struggles too much, or something. And Simon was right.
  • Randy said it was a very good song choice.
  • Paula said he is staying true to himself
  • Simon said he has had 2 bad weeks and he needs to get serious.
Syesha Mercado was born on 1-2-87 and she sang If I Were Your Woman by Stephanie Mills. I just love her baby cry imitation, and I also loved her performance.
  • Randy said it was the best she ever sounded; stellar
  • Paula said everyone will remember this one
  • Simon said it was the best so far, but there's a limit on her vocals
Chikezie was born on 9-11-85 and he sang If Only For One Night by Luther Vandoss. He was cute. It looks like he's got some "groupies." I didn't care for the song, but he did okay.
  • Randy didn't love it for him. It was old-school and boring
  • Paula disagreed but I am not sure exactly what she said. Can we ever?
  • Simon said the performance was very cheesy.
Brooke White was born on 6-2-83 and she sang Every Breath You Take by The Police. She killed the song. She screws up and it's professionalism; David Archuleta screws up and it's the end of the world. I think they both need to leave, but only one can go tonight.
  • Randy didn't love the arrangement
  • Paula enjoyed this week more than last week
  • Simon agreed with Randy and didn't like the arrangement
Michael Johns was born on 10-20-78 and he sang We Are The Champions by Queen. I thought he did okay, but the background singers sucked!
  • Randy said it was his best performance since he has been on the show
  • Paula said it was his shining moment
  • Simon said he saw star potential and tonight he just got it right
Carly Smithson was born on 9-12-83 and she sang Total Eclipse Of The Heart by Bonnie Tyler. I didn't like the performance and I thought she looked very strange afterwards.
  • Randy didn't love it. He thought it was the wrong song choice
  • Paula loved what she did
  • Simon said something didn't work
David Archuleta was born on 12-28-90 and he sang You're The Voice by David Foster. I don't think his voice is that strong, and I bet his dad picked this one. Bad choice dad!
  • Randy said it was very nice
  • Paula said he could sing the phone book and we would all love it
  • Simon said it was reminiscent of a theme park performance, and he didn't know who chose that song, but that song was not him.
Kristy Lee Cook was born on 1-18-84 and she sang God Bless The USA by Lee Greenwood. I still don't think she has a very strong personality, but I love that song, so Simon really hit the nail on the head.
  • Randy said it was a great song choice, but it was pitchy
  • Paula said it was a good song choice
  • Simon said it was the most clever song choice ever, and this was her best performance by a mile.
David Cook was born on 12-20-82 and he sang Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. Wow! What a performance. If you missed it, you really need to hit and search for it. Just incredible.
  • Randy said it was the most original, most bold (performance) and he might win the whole lot
  • Paula said he was smart, brave, willing, and brilliant and he can win it
  • Simon said he was brave and absolutely amazing
