Idol Producers Get Early Christmas Present

Well, it's official. "American Idol" producers got their fondest wish tonight in the form of a David vs. David finale, as Syesha was sent home. It will be the 17-year old teen heartthrob with the flawless voice versus the 25-year old seasoned rocker with originality and raw talent. Both are deserving of a spot in the finale, so let's just hope America remembers its a talent competition not a popularity contest and bases their votes strictly on Tuesday night's performances. At this point, I'd say Cook goes in as the underdog, but if he can pull off a showstopper of a performance ala his covers of "Billie Jean", "Always Be My Baby" or "Eleanor Rigby" then he's got a shot. Let's all tune in next Tuesday, and...go David!
