like the title says, David Cook won the 2008 season of American Idol, if you what it is. It is a singing competition in America, and over here it is HUGE.

I was a little disapointed that he won, because I was anticipating that David Archuleta would win, which I am happy to say that he is from my state, but I'm happy for David C. They are both killer singers, and I love them both.

If any of you would like to chat and make comments to this thread, go ahead, thats what its here for.

Well, it IS huge where I live too (and it's not even in the US). Well, I was extremely happy that he won. I didn't want Archuleta to win for some reason. Simon's last words before the results was well-deserved for Cook too, IMO.

While I think Archuletta's got a great voice, I don't see him as star material. Much of his singing (while very good) had a 'sameness' quality to it.

Cook seemed to be a bit more diverse in his talent and abilities. Again they are both great, but I think if you add up intangibles Cook comes out on top.

But what do I know? I wanted Saneesha (sp) to win!

I don't watch these as singing competitions aren't my cup of tea, but I know someone else that watches it and I happen to hear bits and pieces on occasions. From what I can hear though he probably deserves it.

I am so glad Cook won, He has such an edgy look and attitude to him.
Archuleta is good... but he is just way to boring, almost like the type that would release Christmas albums that you're grandmother would get you from the dollar tree for $5.99 In a few years.

omg i ws so happy that he won. i was so sure that David Archuleta was going to win, cuz they think hes adorable or something. but they said that David Cook won, i was happy and surprised. he really deserved it more. i originally wanted Michael Johns to win. i thought that the finalss would have been Michael johns and David Cook in the end, i was half right.

Well yeah, I heard one song and I didn't really like it. Sorry. You know, everyone has a different taste in music, and in this case our taste is different, hun.

You're a Cookie fan too? Yeah!

I guess the only upbeat song that he sang well (just guessing here) -
either "You'd better shop around" or "Stand by Me" (would that count as upbeat?)

And yes, "With You" was horrible with that spastic dancing that reminded me of Taylor Hicks and oh god, i hate that autistic smile of his! (No offense to special education kids everywhere! This is PERSONAL! LoL)

By the way which were / was your favourite David Cook song(s)? Mine's "Always be my baby" and "Music of the Night"... "Billie Jean" and "Hello" come a close third and fourth. And I absolutely loved "I don't wanna miss a thing"

Yeah I was so ****ed (yeah u got me right :cln:) when Syesha and Carly ended up bottom 2 in the Andrew Lloyd Webber week and Carly got eliminated - especially when they both brought the house down with their songs. (David C. didn't need to bring the house down... every girl in the audiance had fainted when he sang "touch me, trust me" - including my sister who was hyperventilating on the couch LOL)

sorry about insulting Archie's smile. but I hated his version of "think of me". BORING!

(sorry if this getting tiring for u, like i said... i'm having AI withdrawal issues. just take a look at my signature)

PS to be honest, I wanted Carly to be top 2 with Cookie even though he would win eventually. And yeah, Syesha gets on my nerves (sometimes!) - and your description is right on! Whitney Houston - hahahaha

i FREAKED OUT when they were in the bottom 2, i started hyperventilating and then i just stared at the screen ten minuted after carly left, total shock, she tore it up the night before, brooke shouldve left.... archie botched a whole line during andrew lloyd webber week!and the judges didnt even catch him.

Brooke? Hmm... I was hoping for Jason. but yeah either she or Jason?

oh yeah, Archie missed a lyric i do remember now. Yeah the judges are kinda deaf sometimes. I couldn't believe Simon said 'you made the best of what u had' to Cookie. WTF???

and yeah, at that point, I would have preferred syesha to go before Carly... god i wished she had made it to Rock and Roll week. (at least)

Paula, Paula, Paula...

remember the semifinals and the neil diamond week? Although the latter was due to a rushed schedule and a tiny mistake, i can't believe that she actually used notes from the dress rehearsal. I mean, WHAT? the look on everyone's faces were priceless though.

Yeah, and Simon... "I preferred the grittier side of you" - and u diss other contestants from sticking too much to the same genre all the time????

Guess Randy's the only consistent one with all his "dog pound", "molten hot lava"... and the rest of his extremely limited vocabulary.

Though he acted like he was trying to compete with Simon during the Top 3 week about the judges song's choice thing. But i think he chose a bad song for Syesha to sing...

and during the top 4, he told her that her rendition of "A Change is Gonna Come" was emotionally disconnected. "you made her cry Randy."

OMG, lara_is_mine... i think we've made this thread into a personal conversation thing! OOPS!

Producer's choice - yup they were bias towards *drumroll* Cookie! "Longer" was GOOEY, and i mean, Syesha is so much better than that trashy "Hit Me Up' crap.
