The American Idol: David Cook

I was wrong about the winner of Idol, but I’m thrilled that I was wrong. I assumed that teenage girls were the primary voters, but last night’s record voters demonstrated that more people were paying attention than the ratings showed, and they voted. The result was the right one. Archuleta was near perfect all season, and he has a great career ahead. But Cook is a more talented musician and unique singer, and I love that he sings with such passion. “Hello” was my favorite song of his all season, and it demonstrates why he won the contest last night. Congrats Cook!
