‘American Idol’: The Battle for Second Place Continues

We'll admit it — the producers of American Idol weren't lying when they promised that this season's talent would rival that of all previous ones. Save for Luke Menard, there's really not a bad contestant remaining in this year's top sixteen. Last night was eighties night, and virtually all eight male singers turned in passable performances. It's just too bad that, in the end, they'll all definitely lose to David Archuleta, who we're pretty sure is unbeatable.
