Jason Castro, “I Shot the Sheriff”: 18
Okay, am I the only one who liked that? I thought it was cute and I thought--for a change--he was actually trying.
But unfortunately for Jason, his efforts were met with one of the most scathing critiques I have ever heard in the finals. Can’t wait to hear what he does next…
David Archuleta, “Stand By Me”: 20
I was about to trash him for being predictable until he dropped that “Beautiful Girls” riff in there. It was a good performance, but I’d really like to see him shake it up a little.
