Last night we found out David Archuleta and David Cook will compete for the title of American Idol. Yep, Syesha Mercado is finally going home. She was very composed as she addressed the fans. I really think she’ll have one heckuva career. The two Davids will perform one final time for your votes Tuesday on Fox. The champ will be crowned in 6 days. Simon has voiced his opinion on who he feels should win, “If I'm gonna base it on who had done the best performances over the live shows, David Cook deserves to win." He also said David Archuleta has zero personality. Wonder where he got that from? With the amount of time David A. says "Gosh!" I think Napoleon Dynamite should sue him for personality infringement.

STAR Artist Gavin DeGraw’s new CD had a HUGE first week. It debuted at #7 on the Billboard charts. Compare that to his last CD, Chariot – that only made it to #107! Obviously the album’s success has been spurred by the big hits “In Love With a Girl”, a song inspired by "somebody who knew you well enough to put up with the parts about you that aren't lovable."

STAR Artist Sheryl Crow has recorded a batch of new PSAs aimed at teen drivers. In them she recalls all the fun she had as a teen but warns, “Don't let your fun be cut short. Safety belts save lives. Make them a habit." Check out one of the PSAs:

In case you’re a die-hard fan, the final Montel Williams talk show airs tomorrow. Montel tells us he’s proud of what he’s done over the past 17 years, "I'm the first show in the history of television that had something called an after-care program. The only show on television that has a full-time psychiatrist employed to do nothing but work with guests..." Montel will keep working on various projects saying that his public battle with MS makes him feel as if he needs to, “take advantage of time more than I ever have."

Jerry Springer is finding it harder and harder to defend the content of his talk show. Parade magazine recently asked him if he’s proud of what he does and he replied, “I want to apologize for it. Sometimes I think I should have a show just called, I'm Sorry." Okay, Jerry’s sorry. Now all we have to do is get those three thousand jilted lovers and cross-dressing circus midgets to say they're sorry as well.

Actress Reese Witherspoon is the cover story in the most recent OK! magazine which is reporting her and Jake Gyllenhaal are ready to get married and according to friends should, “be engaged any day now.”

Actress Jodie Foster isn’t out of the closet but the gossip magazines might force her out. According to The National Enquirer, she and her long-time, supposed girlfriend have gone their separate ways. What drove them apart? No one knows. Back in December Jodie may have slipped up at an awards show when she thanked, “my beautiful Cydney, who sticks by me through all the rotten and the bliss."

Yesterday the big news was Angelina Jolie finally confirming she’s having twins. She actually had Jack Black to thank for that. He blurted it out while she was being interviewed. And now it looks like Dustin Hoffman has revealed her due date. Evidently Dustin told it to the same interviewer that got the confirmation on the twins. Angelina’s two new babies will say "hey" to the world on August 19th.

STAR Artist John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston left steamy South Beach, but their supposed relationship shows no signs of cooling. Last night, the two of ‘em had dinner and drinks in the Big Apple. And they certainly didn't hide their affection, reportedly kissing, hugging and posing for pics. A happy Jen, who's usually press shy, even told the paparazzi on her way out that the date was "great, thank you."

I don’t know if you remember, but a few months ago I mentioned Matthew McConaughey doesn’t use deodorant…of any kind. Upon hearing this, Axe sent him a year’s supply of body spray. Not that he’ll ever use it…

I'm really sorry to be the one to tell you this, ladies, but Mario Lopez was asked to pose nude for Playgirl and turned them down. He says, "I politely declined. It's not something for me at the moment. But it's ironic, because I'm, like, nature boy. I'm always running around the house in underwear or nothing." Yeah, it’s irony, or Playgirl has really good private eyes.
