David Wins American Idol Season 7!

Thanks to our time zone, we in Hawaii will be one of the last to find out the results of this season’s American Idol competition today (unless the spoiler boards is your friend), but, for the most part, wasn’t last night’s David vs. David outcome a shocker?

All along, I’ve been praising David Cook for his innovative style and star readiness factor, two key ingredients I figgah would make him the ideal A.I. winner. But David Archuleta had other plans son! Bruddah came out to win it all “dawg!”

You could see a look of determination in his eye (the eye of the tiger if you will) that you’ve never seen before, and you could hear the conviction in his voice with every note. His three choices (one chosen by Clive Davis) were spot on:

  1. “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me”
  2. “In This Moment”
  3. “Imagine”

While Cook’s three choices:

  1. “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
  2. “Dream Big”
  3. “The World I Know”

fell surprisingly flat. I was actually bored to tears (no, not real tears silly – see Robots Don’t Cry).

An air of arrogance (which I’ve seen signs of in the past) also started to bother me when watching Cook last night. If it were based strictly on last night, from a pure singing standpoint, David Archuleta, in my mind, wins hands down. But you never know what the voting public thinks and does.

Either way, it was an interesting night to put the finishing touches to this season’s American Idol don’tcha think? Have a happy hump day y’all!

P.S. Congrats to the Chicago Bulls yesterday for vaulting all the way up from the 9th spot to the #1 pick in this year’s NBA Draft. Here’s how the top 14 went down:

  1. Chicago Bulls
  2. Miami Heat
  3. Minnesota Timberwolves
  4. Seattle Supersonics
  5. Memphis Grizzlies
  6. New York Knicks
  7. L.A. Clippers
  8. Milwaukee Bucks
  9. Charlotte Bobcats
  10. New Jersey Nets
  11. Indiana Pacers
  12. Sacramento Kings
  13. Portland Trail Blazers
  14. Golden State Warriors

Talk to me:
– Who do you think won Season 7 of American Idol? David Cook or David Archuleta?
– Who’s your NBA team? Are you happy with the lottery results?
