David vs. David: American Idol Finale

As what the candid judge Simon Cowell had predicted back in April, American Idol Season 7 Finale will be a battle between two Davids. David Archuleta, 17-year old piano balladeer faces David Cook, 25-year old guitar-playing rocker in the much-awaited finale. Both of them have been the favorites throughout the season though I must admit I didn't expect the younger David to make it this far. Preparing for the final week of the competition might be a little harder for David Archuleta as he will just be on his own now that his father, Jeff Archuleta has been reportedly banned from the show's rehearsals and backstage area for being a career-minded stage dad. David's father is said to have insisted on changing some of the lyrics to Ben E. King's "Stand by Me," in order to slip in a verse from Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls," in last Tuesday's performance, a move that cost the production additional song-clearance costs. Whoa! Hope this won't have a negative impact on David's final performance next Tuesday. Goodluck to both of these guys!
