With the hope that little David Archuleta would "save the idol, save the world, the "American Idol" front-running hero took a stumble Tuesday night on the first show where all 12 of the top finalists sang. Archuleta did the unforgettable Idol no-no and forgot the words to his Beatles song.
The 17-year-old singer will most likely stay on the show, and so far fans seem to be forgiving him for being human. He may, however, not be the shoe-in winner everyone thought him to be.
Brooke White and Carly Smithson gave positive performances on the ladies side. White sat at the piano barefoot and sang with her heart while Smithson danced around the stage with a smile that let everyone know she was having fun.
Jason Castro stayed with his style and connected with Judge Paula Abdul while Chikezie rocked the house and gave one of the best performances of the night.
One of the contestants will be eliminated on Wednesday night's show. "American Idol" airs on FOX at 9/8c.
