"A.I." Top Four Drown in a Sea of Snappers

5/4/2008 6:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Say goodbye to small town obscurity! For now, at least.

The final four "A.I." contestants -- David Cook, David Archuleta, Syesha Mercado and Jason Castro -- were greeted in Las Vegas yesterday by a pap/fan crush only Brangelina and Britney have witnessed.

Who knew "Idol" was so popular?

Jason (Tiny Tim) Castro should be next to go. Jason needs to get back home to smoke his weed.

I'm sorry but ever since they eliminated Michael Johns, I became disinterested in this years idol. I don't think the singers are that good this year although I like Jason Castro.As for Paula, she is just fine where she is with the idol. I just feel that this years idol doesnt compare to the previous ones because of their ages (too young) and their lack of talent.

I hope it's not a David/David finale...how boring. Archuletta has a beautiful voice, but his song choices are syrupy pop ballads. I'd never buy his CD. And he can do Disney movie songs and Broadway without the the Idol Crown, so I hope he's the next to go. Technical voice isn't everything--especially when it's delivered in a cheesy, "aw shucks" way. Sweet kid, nice voice, but not an Idol.

Cook's the real deal. Great voice and a great performer. Except there are tons like him out there--Daughtry, Nickelback, etc. I really want to like him more, but the boner's not coming...

Castro: Most memorable songs ever on the show--Hallelujah, Rainbow, Daydreamin Boy...But also some of the worst. But I gotta ask, do we need our current pop stars to be able to do cheesy songs from CATS?!?! And my "American Idol" "fight for the underdog" spirit is ignited to support a guy thrown under the bus and forced to sing after he's told a song sucks before he opens his mouth. And he's NOT a stoner---devout Christian, in fact. People gotta stop judging other people on how they look...

Syesha: Pretty voice. Pretty girl. But I can never remember what she sang the next day...And don't we already have a ton of pop singers just like her?

I want a David Cook/Jason Castro finale. Jason SHOULD win and bring back a folk rock revival, but Cook will. He'll have one pretty good album and disappear into obscurity...

Meanwhile, Paula needs to be kicked off and replaced with Michael Sleazak...PRONTO.

David Archuleta has to go.....Michael John was the best. Cook is way better then Archuleta. I WOULD NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM ARCHULETA he is so overrated its not even funny. I seen people on open mic night better then him. PLEASE.

#24 - The 7 percent is for the number of people who think Cook will be voted OFF. Mercado leads as to who will get the boot this week.
