David vs David?

So who won in the David versus David battle last Saturday?

Well, it depends on how you look at it. Archuleta had a lot more fans singing along but Cook was definitely the better performer.

The younger David was comfortable on stage and moved around; a fan commented that he's like a kiti-kiti with the way he was jumpy even when he was just standing in front of the mic. No awkward dancing like in his "With You" performance in his AI days, whew.

Meanwhile, Cook knew just how to work the crowd. His previous band experience probably helped. He talked to the audience more and gave brief descriptions of the songs he performed. One particular highlight was when he went down to the crowd in the middle of a song and took photos of himself using the fans' cameras. Lucky front-row-seated fans.

Archuleta opened with his newest single "Touch My Hand" and sang his hits "Crush" and "A Little Too Not Over You." He sang and played the piano for "A Thousand Miles" much to the delight of the crowd. He also performed songs from his AI days, "Stand by Me" and "Angels."

Meanwhile, Cook sang "Light On" and his new single "Come Back to Me." "Always Be My Baby" scored his highest shriek decibel from the moment he introduced it as the song they've "never ever played as a full band before."

The night ended with Archuleta joining Cook near the end of "A Daily Anthem," Cook's last song that he dedicated to his late brother Adam. They went out with Cook's arm over Archuleta's shoulder, showing there wasn't a David versus David for them.
