Archuleta is a little boring on “Sweet Caroline.” The song never builds much.

Diamond asks Syesha Mercado for a hug (kind of creepy, Neil) and says he was impressed. She’s next with “Hello Again.” She’s terrific. Which means she’ll be in the bottom two and probably voted off.

I’m not digging the straight Farrah hair, though.

Randy Jackson thought David Cook and Syesha Mercado were in the zone.

Paula Abdul thaught Castro sang twice and liked the second song better.

Simon Cowell hated everything.
