April 1st 2008 Tuesday 9 contestants left:

David A is probably back on top after a bad song choice last week.
Kristie Lee Cook had her chance shoot a couple of notches singing one of Dolly's songs, but she picked a rather tired and played out "Coat of many colors". It didn't help her. She did better last week. David Cook picked an interesting song and he did some nice vocal things that I didn't know he had in him- but the song, "Sparrow", wasn't exactly electrifying. Not a very exciting night in general. AI should have bumped the show up to 1 hr 30 minutes, slowed the pace a bit, and let the kids sing a little longer because the pace was too frantic. 1 hour is too little and 2 hours is too much for 9 contestants.
