Random Reflections on Idol, Dancing

The battle of the Davids is, to me, the most interesting and polarizing American Idol faceoff since the classic Clay-vs-Ruben finale of season 2. As was the case then, the fandom for both appears to be passionate and deep, and whoever’s rooting for one is very likely rooting against the other.The differences between both singers’ styles are obvious, but so are the similarities in what people tend to criticize in each. In short, those who find David Archuleta’s crooning to be boringly sweet and cloying and too much the same are balanced out by those who find David Cook’s angst-flavored rock to be boringly mannered and too much the same. To each their own, but who will win?Most Idol-ators no doubt had their minds made up before they watched Tuesday’s show, but in terms of pure showmanship, calculated or not, David Archuleta won the night. Maybe not by the “knockout” that Simon declared, milking that regrettable boxing metaphor at least one time too more
