David Archuleta is a great singer, don't get me wrong. He has a cute personality along with that. But this competition isn't just about those things, it's about consistency. David Archuleta is anything BUT consistent. 2 weeks (Beatles Week #2 and Birth Year Song Week), he had a very horrible performance. He goes up & down though the weeks, when David Cook has done nothing but improve. David Archuleta is lucky that he is so cute, & he will make it far because apparently, American tweens can't look past a pretty face. He also FORGOT the words once, & that is one time too many. You can NEVER EVER forget the words to ANY song on this program. If David Archuleta wins (which I'm betting will happen), it just proves that American Idol is a popularity contest, not a talent one. I'm hoping the last 2 will be David Cook & Michael Johns, with David Cook reaching the top. Both have great potential, great voices, great personalities (David isn't arrogant at all; he wears his orange wristband for a girl with cancer named Lindsey Rose), & above all, GREAT consistency. They have improved tremendously.
In conclusion, Archuleta's good, but VERY inconsistent. I mean, honestly, I wouldn't buy his music on my iPod. His voice does get quite boring, he has no variety.
David Cook has a great personality, trust me. I have heard from many sources that when he played at the bar, he was a sweetheart. Also, as I said before, read about Lindsey Rose & what he has done for her.
Have you noticed that Archuleta's fans always seems to use the same reason as to why they want him to win? More than saying because of his voice, I see "BECAUSE HE'S SO CUTE OMG I WANT TO MARRY HIM!!!!!!" Shallow? Thought so.
