ETA: Sorry, the database crashed, and I was distracted. This is what happened tonight…

Ryan brings David Archuleta out to center stage and declares him safe. He asks David Cook and Syesha Mercado to trade places, creating an obvious Bottom 3 and Top 3–Syesha Mercado, Kristy Lee Cook and Brooke White on one side, Jason Castro Carly Smithson and David Cook on the other.

He asks David to choose the Top 3. David sits in the middle of the stage instead of choosing. Ryan tries to scoot him over to the side where Jason Castro, Carly Smithson and David Cook are standing, but David doesn’t budge. The Top 3 join him center stage. David Cook sits down on the floor next to him. Ryan declares all four safe. Jason Castro grins and sits down on the floor too. Carly Smithson is so giddy, she jumps up and down. Ryan sends them over to the couches.

Ryan asks Kristy Lee Cook, Brooke White and Syesha Mercado to take center stage. After the break, Syesha Mercado is sent back to the couches. Brooke White is declared safe. Kristy Lee Cook is eliminated.
