I didn't even vote last night (American Idol). Normally, I'm voting for at least the first 30 minutes but I've decided that whichever David wins the AI crown this year - both of them will be ok. If they both recorded CDs and I had to choose, I'd definitely buy David Cook's. Throughout the season he showed his versatility - rock, ballads, corny "pop", not to mention how nice he seems. The younger David is technically & vocally very good, but I think he needs some life experiences behind him. As I commented last week on Entertainment Weekly's column, when David A. sang the Dan Fogelberg song - technically he was the best BUT . . . I could not believe him when he sang about a love so deep, yada yada yada. I don't believe he's ever felt that way so the song was as Simon would say "totally unbelievable". But I believed David Cook on almost every song he sang this season. Now whether his fans over voted the teeny-bopper Archuletta fans remains to be seen. We'll all find out tonight and in about a year, we'll see who has the better selling CD. Two words - remember Daughtry?
