Yes, I almost jumped out of my seat when they announced David Cook as the winner of AI last night! I did sort of scream "Yay!" Then I turned to my husband and said, "ok, so I did care!" (see previous post!) Winner by 12 million votes?! Somehow I really don't think Ryan needed to announce that. He could have told David Cook later but I don't think David Cook really wanted to know either. I also wanted to stand up and applaud Simon after he apologized to David Cook for being too hard on him the previous night. However, in one online report I read, I do wonder if Clive Davis really was looking forward to an Archuletta win - more marketable is probably what Davis thought. That might explain certain behaviors from the judges the night before. But then again - Simon knows his own mind & I doubt he would "roll over" just because Clive Davis asked him to promote little David more. So it was a great AI ending! Can't wait for Cook's first CD!
