Wow! David Cook won American Idol. I saw several shows this season and each time David Cook sang I was impressed with how well he was able to make the songs he chose his own. He seems to be the real deal.
I didn’t see last night’s show, but Kevin did and he thought that it was pretty clear the judges wanted David Archuleta to take the title, which explains why, right before the winner was announced, Simon gave David Cook a public apology for being disrespectful to him last night. Simon knew who had won and he had to make nice and save face very quickly.
