American Idol`s David Archuleta to sing before Jazz game, unless…

David Archuleta, a finalist on American Idol, will perform the national anthem prior to the Utah Jazz home game this Friday night, May 9, at EnergySolutions Arena. The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

However, if David is voted off of American Idol tonight, his Utah Jazz pregame performance won’t happen. It’s a contract thing.

I’ve never been an American Idol viewer but actually have seen most of this season, and I don’t think he’ll be voted off tonight. I predict that the kid with the dredlocks who sang Bob Marley and Bob Dylan last week is probably the one to go. Marley and Dylan are two of my favorite singers ever, but the kid couldn’t really pull it off.
