David Cook is the winner of American Idol!
I love DC. I think he is an original, I enjoy his singing style and, can I just say how freaking adorable I think he is?? His looks have certainly morphed throughout the run of this season, and I really, REALLY like the new look.
Archie blew me away with his “Imagine” performance in Beatles week, but last night it was just meh. I agreed with what DC said last night when he was criticized for not doing a reprise . He said something like, “This is a progression, and I wanted to do something new.”
I must confess I didn’t cast a single vote this season. I am much more likely to buy a David Cook CD than a David Archuleta CD, but I would have been OK with the results going the other way, since it’s hard for me to envision DC in the cookie cutter mold I imagine AI is all about. Still, I’m sure the AI folks are thrilled not to have to deal with stage dad if DA had won.
A huge congratulations to both Davids tonight. And DC, call me!
