* Michael Buffer, nice touch. Thinking about boxing though, doesn’t David Archuleta look like Rocky Balboa’s son from Rocky 5? Sage Stallone. Rocky 5 is the bad one with Tommy Morrison. Wimp-y.
* Jim Lampley? What, was Jim Nantz too busy tonight. Too many sports references already? Probably.
* I can’t wait until David Archuleta’s on Larry King. “It’s like a dream.”
* I’m throwing it out there, I want David Cook to win.
* Have you heard, it’s the Nokia Theatre.
* Has anyone seen Simon’s top button?
* Cook is a smooth operator. But if this was the playground, he’d totally have Archuleta in a headlock.
* “This guy is awesome.” You can’t make up soundbites like that!
