Is the Fix in For Archuleta?

5/7/2008 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Archuleta could fart and the "A.I." judges would say bravo.

Davie boy was pretty good last night, but really, it's as if the judges were preprogrammed to drool over him regardless of what he did. They didn't cream over Kelly Clarkson the way they did with David, and no offense, but he eats her dust.

"Idol" has its mitts on the recording contracts of the winners. So is this about talent, or that David is more commercial and has a longer shelf life? We're just askin'.....

In the beginning, David was impressive. But now every song sounds the same. Same type of song, same inflections, etc... I did think his surprised 'oh thank you so much' was cute at first (like he just couldn't believe the judges liked his performance) but now it is just annoying.

It should be OBVIOUS to ALL, David Cook is the best of the 3 left. He can perform, arrange music, sing and play an instrument.

Everyone has different tastes, but then again, isn't that what music interesting? I wouldn't "drool" over David Archuleta, but I still like his voice and I'm glad he did well. All the contestants sang well. Somebody had to win!

What's all this "fluff" about stage presence, anyhow? The guy is still young, and he's probably fairly shy. Besides, being flashy is way overemphasized. Being able to sing should be enough. I disagree with the claim that "all he can sing is ballads." He probably just PREFERS them! Sigue cantando, Dave.
