The battle between David vs David for the American Idol 2008 title finally concluded. And it was the Rocker that touch the hearts of America. From the 97.5 million total votes Cook garnered 56%.
The two Davids should be ecstatic because this season earned more votes compared to the previous record of only 23 million.
I am personally confused who will win because they are both talented in their chosen genre.
The 17 year old crooning swooner Archuleta had impressed all three judges and Simon Cowell believed it was a knock-out. It was different though for the 25 year old past bartender rocker. Simon thought Cook's choice of the music is "completely and utterly the wrong choice" for him.
Cook smashed the show with his performances of I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, Dream Big, The World I Know. Archuleta swooned everybody with his Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, In this Moment, and the magnificent Imagine.
The competition was a close fight and it went really great. They both deserved the title but only one can emerge victorious and that is DAVID COOK. Well I'm pretty sure we will be seeing more of them. Season 7 was truly an outstanding and successful season.
