Syesha Mercado and Jason Castro – Larry King Live – VIDEO

David Archuleta

As the group becomes larger things loosen up. Intentional and unintentional humor abounds in this segment.

Larry pronounces Syesha’s name wrong. Gah. Jason is asked about Paulagate. It was very confusing, “I was a little bewildered, ” he says. Cook says they were standing next to each other and for a minute they thought she was talking about him. Jason laughs, “We weren’t looking but I was kind of glancing like…” Insert Jason making a hilarious face here. Syesha worked to stay positive, even when she was constantly in the bottom 3. Jason insists, again that he did not give up. Archie thinks Syesha’s performances were better than the judges gave her credit for, and he’s so passionate in his defense of her, he becomes tongue tied, and the group cracks up. Larry, who’s always on top of things, says to Jason, “Simon told you to pack your bags one week, but you didn’t.” Jason says, “Uh, I did…” The general consensus was to take Simon’s comments with a grain of salt.
