Four years ago on American Idol the 2 remaining contestants were once again asked to sing 3 songs. David’s first song “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” was a song selected by music guru Clive Davis. The second song “In This Moment” was David’s pick from several songs submitted for the songwriting contest. And the third song “Imagine” was David’s contestant’s choice.
Randy Jackson: “Dude, you are so good tonight. You are exactly what this show is about. Finding the best singer we can find, and the best singer of Season 7 is right there!!”
Paula Abdul: “It’s the culmination, David, and you’ve left me speechless as I was when I first heard you sing this song. You, you were stunning tonight. You were stunning tonight. This is what’s it’s all about, David.”
Simon Cowell: “In my opinion, David, you came out here tonight to win and what we have witnessed is a knockout.”
