David Cook Is The New American Idol!

David Cook versus David ArchuletaI’ve got to tell you, last weekend was one of the most tiring I’ve ever had for a while. Actually this whole months have been quite intense, I feel drained somewhere along the way. This is also reflected in my post, I just couldn’t find the energy to wake up late and make a post every couple of days. My post count this month is still less than five!

Blogging is actually harder than I first thought it would be. You have to be constantly creative to be able to find something that is actually useful to write. Thank God I still have American Idol shows to write about, but even that I didn’t get to write as often as I would’ve liked.

Anyway, I just watched the American Idol Finale Result Show a few hours ago when David Cook is declared the winner of the infamous singing talent competition show. There are some controversies, though you cannot expect less from American Idol, but not by much. In my opinion, David Cook deserves to win American Idol Season 7. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an Archie fan, but David Cook is better than him.

I read on the American Idol website that some people think Syesha’s the better singer than the Davids. Well, she improved a lot, much more than the others in my opinion, but she’s still rough around the edges sometimes, especially when she’s singing ballad-type songs.

As an example, when she is singing the USA’s national anthem at the Tampa Bay Rays’ game in Florida which you can also read on my last post about American Idol. She’s dragging the song and sings most of it at the top of her voice. That makes the song harder to enjoy and rather awkward to the ear. But she did excel in Broadway-esque songs in my opinion. And finishing 3rd was as best a result for her.

As for the Finale, I have to be fair. According to Simon, David Archuleta delivered a knockout blow to David Cook, but later he corrected himself saying that his comment was bordering toward disrespect for David Cook. Was it because after he reviewed the Finale Performances he realized that David Cook was the better performer, or was it because he already knew the result firsthand and was attempting to restore David Cook’s honor after his comment the night before?

We might never know the truth about that, but comparing the performances by both the David’s, I have to admit while it was definitely NOT a knockout, but David Cook did win the night. The first song they are about equal, but the second song I loved David Cook’s performance slightly more than David Archuleta’s. For the third song, David Cook also won by a small margin, thanks to his courage to take risks.

Being the runner-up is as best a result for David Archuleta. Mind you, he is only a seventeen years old, and he can still grow a lot as a singer just like as he did during the competition. David Cook is more experienced and his experience is what makes him win the whole gig, but as was the case with former runner-ups, we can say that David Archuleta are going to get his own album out sooner or later.

Once again, congratulations to David Cook. You deserved to be the American Idol. Wishing you much success in the future! By the way, if you want to get a glimpse of what is to expect of the winner and the runner-up after the show is over, you can read David Cook and Archuleta’s article by L.A Times. See you all later!
