And I missed it. Sort of. It was my oldest son’s birthday tonight and I had a houseful. I was unable to sit and take notes but I did watch and listen in between the chicken parmesan and the birthday cake. After the show, my mother-in-law and I had # 01, 03, and 05 on speed dial on three different phone lines. We called for an hour and a half. I think all tolled we got in about 30 votes for David Cook.
That said, I think it was obvious by David A’s second song that kid came to win. I have never seen him so focused or really sounding as good as he did tonight. That isn’t saying David Cook tanked, he didn’t, but well, he just didn’t seem to shine the way the other David did. But despite that, I still think David Cook is the man to beat, and most definitely the man who will go on to break chart records. He has the sound, David A doesn’t.
And even after the obvious, I think David A’s crazed teeny-bobber cheering squad will vote him in as the next American Idol. C’est la vie. The good news is, we will all be hearing more of David Cook, and very soon.
and for those of you wondering, Kristi Yamaguchi won Dancing with the Stars Tonight.
So? Who got your vote and who do you think will be the next American Idol?
