"Idol" Kids -- Feudin' Like Cats and Dogs

2/29/2008 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We have spies -- of course we do -- inside "American Idol," and things between the contestants have gotten ugly from the get go.
Syesha, David
At least one of the female contestants has taken cheap, Imus shots at Syesha Mercado, calling her hair "nappy," among other insults -- behind her back. Nice.

And the guys were ganging up against 17-year-old David Archuleta, making snarky remarks, again, behind his back. But who can blame them? Our sources say record execs at 19 Entertainment have already been in touch with top record publishers in Hollywood, and the word has already been sent out to songwriters to write this kid some tunes.

honestly the kid can sing but the rocker guy that plays guitar is better. This 17 year old needs to be in a boy band. as for the "nayyp" it looks good on her!

So, is the assumption that the contestant that made the nappy comment is white? Cuz black girls make those kinds of comments about each other, too.

of course they would pick on the two most talented hispanics on the show...this year it should be called Latin-American Idol.

By next week half the field would be hispanic, if you count the filipino girl (yes!, filipinos are hispanic)

David is a great singer, but he reminds me of a pageant boy who was groomed by his stage mother in utero. He probably went to all of these child pageants, and he was told how to pose and how to answer a question. His mother shamelessly took him to the first season of American Idol and had him sing to Kelly Clarkson. He seems programmed and maufactured, since he was groomed from birth to be a star. Let him have his childhood or whatever is left of it.

David will only sell CDs to his tween following. He is perfect for Disney.

People are always hating on the best. David is by far the best contestant on the show regardless of past experience. As far as I know, there are no rules limiting the amount of experience a contestant can or cannot have.

He is the winner and the rest can just leave now! Stop hating!
