IDOL FINAL

Excellent night, still can't get through...

My 2nd boy...David Cook (Michael John's was #1), won the night IMHO.

Ballad boy bored me to tears. (Did you expect anything else from me?)

Rock On Cook!!

Here's where I leave to keep trying to vote now.

Me.

I've always been a David Cook fan, and I still am. I'm partial to the rockers who bring a unique sound to the show.

That being said.....

David Archuleta won the night, hands down. He saved his best songs for tonight, and I think he made the best case for wanting to win. David Cook did great on all of his songs, and I have no doubt he's in for a nice recording deal. I think that David A. will walk away with the title though, and he really deserves it. For being only 17 years old, he was very impressive in front of a big crowd and TV audience.

OK, just listened to round 1. I liked David C. While David A was awesome, he sang the same version of that song that I've heard 5000 times. While his voice is phenomenal, when he sings, I already know exactly what the song is going to sound like before he sings it. Its very predictable. When David C does a song, I'm always excited to see where he's going to go with it.

I'm in the Cook corner.. definitely more talented, most original and entertaining. I'm definitely a 'rock chick' lol.

David A. reminds me of a Zak Efron/Jonas brothers type. Should be great for a Disney movie soundtrack. Unfortunately (for me), he'll win cuz voting is more important to the younger girls than anyone else (yes, I know, some of you vote - but not most). I can't vote, I'm in Canada.

Is there online voting for this one? I know you can call and text message...I think the voting is open for 1 hour 20 minutes more...(I'm not obsessive about this, of course)

Round 2 just finished - the vom songs. The "my life sucked before Idol and now all my dreams have come true." I'm so grateful that David Cook sang something that wasn't slow & sappy. Another ballad for David A - big shock. This is always the point in the season when I turn on American Idol and hope my choice DOESN'T win so they don't have to suffer the indignities of these gaggy songs.

Round 3: Um, didn't love David C's song. Not sure what that was all about. Most have had some personal significance. Of course, David A chooses a ballad. Based on those 3 performances, I'm going to have to say David A will win although I'm still holding out for David C.


OMG its Reuben! I still love that guy!

I've actually tried voting tonight - been trying for an hour & can't get through.

I guess that's a good sign but frustrating. Has it been like this all season?

My vote (and I got through three times only) was for David Cook. He was more unique and showed himself to be more of an entertainer. Having said that (I sound like Simon), Archuleta was pretty darn good tonight on every single song. My chief complaint is that he does the same thing to every song he sings. His voice is perfect, never off key but there's a certain quality that is there every time that doesn't do it for me. To be fair, how many super star singers are recognizable in this same manner? I guess I just prefer the versatility of David Cook. I'm glad he made it to the end. We'll see who wins....

The view here between hailstorms...

Archuletta was the idol, but Cook will be the star.

I've agreed that David Cook has been the most original, versatile and entertaining, and he's just gotten better each week, IMO. But I still really like David A. He'll be a star someday, and he'll break out of his ballad rut. He just needs to mature and get more musical education under his belt.

After reading these posts, I'm getting nervous. I was able to get through to vote for David A. almost every time. That could very well mean that Cook really was getting lots more votes if his lines were busy. A problem A will have is that the parents of those 13 year old girls may not let them stay up until 1 AM on a school night to continue voting. A problem for us "more mature" folks too. I had trouble just lasting until almost 12.

I'm not giving the winner away, as some haven't taken it yet.

What a great show! If you don't cry when you see it, something's wrong. These are happy tears -- it was incredibly moving!

David Cook is a star. That commercial where he did the risky business dance for Guitar Hero was awesome!

I feel totally redeemed for Bo Bice and Chris Daughtry.

I'm soooo happy! David Cook's reaction was the best one ever! He totally deserved to win! Highlight of the night was David playing with ZZ Top. So great!

OK, I reluctantly have to agree with the final vote. Cook looked so natural with ZZ Top and in his commercial. A. just seemed to be playing a role. The thing I find so amazing is that David Cook didn't even plan to try out for Idol. He just went with his brother for moral support and got talked into singing too.
