American Idol Judges Stand By David Archuleta, Against Jason Castro

by at . Comments

Last night's final four show on American Idol was more like a final three show, plus one.

Simon Cowell told David Archuleta that he "crushed the competition" with his rendition of "Stand By Me." Take a look at the performance now and see if you agree:


Jason Castro, conversely, was told to pack his suitcase after his attempt at Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff." Ouch.

We'll find out tonight if this Cowell suggestions rings true or not when one of the final four is sent home.
