American Idol, Top Three: Been There, Heard That

Nothing much exciting out of last night’s American Idol episode. All three contestants — David Archuleta, David Cook and Syesha Mercado, for those of you who don’t tune into Idol until summer reruns — did variants on what they’ve been doing all along. (If Cook doesn’t win the prize, he could front a Bryan Adams cover band.) And the song choices were surprisingly blah for this late in the season. I would almost rather have had another theme night than allow the producers to pick again. Maybe Billy Joel, just like in Season 2 … there are surely nine songs from his catalog that would’ve been more challenging and/or enjoyable.

Hopefully next week’s finale will be better. And if Syesha gets a spot in the top two, that would be more surprising than anything that happened this week.
