Well, the person that should have. It was David Cook and not young David Archuleta that took home the top prize and by a pretty hefty margin. I really thought that Archuleta was going to win, but that Cook would ultimately do better in the long run. Well, Cook won and will do better in the long run, so good for him.
David Cook was, by far, the best from start to finish on American Idol season seven. It will be interesting to see what his first album sounds like. He should have a good chance of joining the likes of Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, as winners that also sell a lot of albums.
I didn’t sit through, what sounds like an excruciatingly long, product placement filled two hours, but what else would you expect from American Idol. I was too busy watching a great comeback win by the Los Angeles Lakers over the San Antonio Spurs. They came from 20 back in the third to win by four.
Anyway, congratulations to David Cook on winning season seven of American Idol.
