David vs David

We just finished watching the American Idol showdown-I love this show (I "forced" Greg to watch it...sure). It hasn't been the most exciting season for me, with the Dolly Parton, Mariah Carey, and Neil Diamond weeks (sorry Melody, I know you love Neil). But this final two has been amazing. Finally, the two most deserving made it to the finals. That usually doesn't happen, there's usually an upset. I am a huge Archie fan, and have been since day one! Even when he forgot his words, he was still adorable. I have been worried about him these past few weeks, but tonight, he totally brought it. I know that Cook fans would argue with me. But listen to Simon, the man. He knows what he is talking about! So, I am sitting here now voting, for the first time this season, with house phone in one hand and cell phone in the other. It's going to be a close one! I can admit that David C has gotten much better since day one, but I still wouldn't label myself as a fan. He seems nice and all, and less cocky than before...but I just don't think he as "original" as people praise him to be. Sorry Cook fans. "Hello" and "Billie Jean" were not his arrangements, and those were by far the best songs of the season. Plus, I really don't get all the Archie haters. He seems like a really young, nice kid, and people don't like him for being nice and innocent? I don't get it. I think he has a phenomenal voice and I love listening to him every time he sings. We'll see what happens. No matter what the turn out, I think they'll both do great. (Although, I would totally buy David A's CD, and not so much David C, Sorry.)

I totally agree with you sister. I really want David A. to win. I really like David C. too, but like the younger David better. It will be an interesting show tomorrow night. Kristi won Dancing With The Stars tonight and she was my pick, so maybe my pick will be good tomorrow too!

well, we were voting for david c last night. sorry, but david cook deserves it more. why? bcuz he never forgot the words, and he is older. david archuleta will have more opportunities. and david archuleta is nice and all, but he will win bcuz all the girls will vote for him cuz he is cute. so i almost dont want him to win, bcuz he will win for the wrong reasons. my mom and brianna think david cook should win too. although we agreed with simon, first round did go to david a. second round was TOTALLY cook! we disagreed! cook sang better the second round. i hope david a doesn't win bcuz he is cute. but i do hope cook wins! GO COOK! but honestly i don't really care. if archuleta wins, i wont be mad. they both are really really good.

Well, sometimes Simon his self is not sure. He ended up apologizing to David C for being so harsh on him. However, I would definitely buy David Cooks CD more likely than David Archuleta's because... well he sings old people songs. He can do a good job at it, but he needs to be a little but more updated. Not ever song can be so mellow. I loved David Archuleta at the beginning it was fresh, somethign new, but it just got old for me. Sorry. Team Cook!

I was so sad when Cook won. I know he is great in all but I really though Archie did great in Apologize. When I heard him, I thought, "wow he looks more and more like an American Idol every week." Oh well, I still like him better. P.S. listen to the first song on our blog. :D

ive decided that archuleta is so much better than cook. ya know what after he sang all those popular R&B songs i have to admitt, he is really good for any type of song. he deffinetly is the american idol, its just its better for cook to win and get the title even though in my mind archi has it.
