Np, thanks for getting bent out of shape over it, probably shouldn't have quoted you but no reason to take it personally, I was just saying ballads are perfectly fine if the person has a good voice but David isn't there yet.
Everyone has an opinion and taste and I'm not going to question that.Both Davids have done themselves really proud.I feel they will both do well and appeal to different kinds of music fans.David Archuleta should win tomorrow night,though.
Jersey City waterfront/New York City JUB meet on September27/28... come to the Big Apple!!!!!!!!!
Let's be clear - DialIdol is definitively predicting that David Cook will win American Idol. No ifs, ands or buts about it. No crazy margin of error claims or anything. The DialIdol scores are significantly different enough to wash all that out the window.
- DialIdol was 91% accurate for season 6 of American Idol.
- DialIdol has accurately predicted the winner of every American Idol season it has covered.
If it's true,then David Cook did not deserve to win based on last night's performance,David Archuleta did.America got it wrong.Total conjecture at this point,and I'm skeptical.
Jersey City waterfront/New York City JUB meet on September27/28... come to the Big Apple!!!!!!!!!
well that doesn't measure text votes and David A gets a lot more of those since he has a lot of younger fans. Cook could still win though. He has a lot of fans too.
I'd much rather see DC win.
SiriusXM 11am to 3 EST
Cook didnt bring it. He should have done Bille Jean
David A picked the better 'idol' song
I dont think David killed "Dont let the sun go done on me" because it isa a good song that any good singer can sing
David Archuleta won and you will see it tonight.
Oh who the hell CARES whether Darling Cook was better than the gay hobbit last night? It's not as if the voting fans are obligated to only base their votes on last night's performance! People vote for all sorts of reasons (hence Casto's baffling inclusion in the Top 4) and there might have been enough energized Cook fans who appreciate that he has been the best thing ALL season, while Archuelta has been sappy, boring and predictable for so many weeks on end. I hope Dial is right and Cook kicks that kid's ass.
Besides, I personally thought Cook was better last night anyway.
If Dial is right, I'm gonna LOVE watching Cook deservingly steal the crown away from the Hobbit. And I hope Archie cries when it happens. LMAO! Though someone better keep his dad away before he wails on the poor kid.
I hope that DialIdol is correct and David Cook wins. Archuleta has been rather boring most if not all of the season, where Cook has kept things at least mildly interesting.
Some people voted based on one night, but I don't think one night and shameless fluffing by the judges makes Archuleta the "American Idol". His songs were not, what was it Randy said...flawless? He messed up more than once, but the judges want him to win for some reason, so they look past it.
"I won't explain, or say I'm sorry. I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scars."
"I am not afraid to keep on living. I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
I personally thought Cook was better then Archuletta too....
Although Archuletta is talented and has his boyish good looks. I think Cook should win because he has been more consistent throughout the show. I do think Archuletta did better last night but it won't give him the win.
I wouldn't buy either one of there albums
and if it's wrong, pathetic fans of david cook better hide in his fat belly for being as arrogant as he is!!!
Just address your comments toward the topic and not the person who posted and you'll be fine.
Archuleta sang circles around Cook. Cook didn't bring it to win it last night. And besides, he was very pitchy last night. Every time he had the extended "rocker *angst* sounding" note, he went flat. I am really surprised that Randy didn't comment about that.
But both are great singers. They both deserve to win it, but in my opinion as a pro musician myself, Archuleta should have it. Hands down. Cook is more contemporary. I will give him that. But, he is what is popular now. There will come a time where his sound is not popular. Archuleta on the other hand doesn't fit a specific genre. He is a great singer who has a voice that is timeless. 50 years from now, Archuleta will still have a voice and a sound that is considered good. Cook on the other hand... I don't think so.
Ok for the person who said no one buys ballads... look at Il Divo. They've had 18 number one hits across the world. Josh Groban... Exactly. People like ballads and inspirational music that makes them feel emotion!!!
Archuleta sang circles around Cook last night. But, Cook has a sound that is very popular RIGHT NOW. 10 years from now, when his genre fades out, he will wash up somewhere. Archuleta however has a voice that is timeless. He isn't trapped by one genre. Given, he does mostly sing ballads, but the sound and quality of his voice will transcend the changes in music over time.
Cook on the other hand.... I don't think so. If Cook wins, it will only be because he is what is popular RIGHT NOW. He is very contemporary in his style. That is the only reason he got so far this season. By vocal standards, he isn't outstanding. He can stay on pitch most of the time, but last night he went flat in every song. I am surprised that Randy didn't comment on that.
My prediction: Cook will get the title because his sound is popular or "now". Archuleta will get 2nd because he will have pulled a "Melinda." Melinda Doolittle was by far the best singer of last season, but she peaked too early, and got "boring." She got the most votes early on in the season, but as time went on, people stopped voting because they assumed that she would win. Archuleta has followed in her shoes. So, as much as I hate to say it, two years in a row, the 2nd best vocalist will probably get the title.
Doolittle and Archuleta are my 'Idols.'
I sort of see American Idol as the launching pad for a career on the Billboard pop chart, yet it seems many of the winners have been more of a niche market artist.
If we were looking for the next big Adult Contemporary singer then I would vote for David Archuleta hands down.
I'm pretty sure that Cook did win this thing, though, if for no other reason than the fact that the judges were more favorable to Archuleta last night, causing Cook lovers to vote like mad in protest. That and the fact that the younger demographic once so invested in this show has been rapidly losing interest in the whole thing, thus removing some of Archuleta's most significant fan base.
Perhaps it's better that Archuleta doesn't win. He has so much time to become precisely who he wants to be as an artist, but winning Idol would likely be a roadblock in doing that.
I didn't know people still watched this? Is this the last season?
archie had the better night but was predictable in that David Cook took risks. I think he should win.
I think David Cook should win, he might not have the best voice of the two but he is the better singer, and he took risks.everyone knew that Archie was going to come back with a song he has been singing since he was 4. Ity was very good but so so predictable.
IMHO, David A was good but boring whereas David C rocks. I am watching his performance "Dream Big" over and over again in youtube now. Thot its very catchy.
Well none the less, I LOVE ARCHULETA! He's amazing
I seriously hope.... that one of them wins and we can finish with this for another year.
I like Idol. Albeit they dont have as good overall singers as they used to. I voted for David Archuleta he has an amazing voice but he isnt that great of a performer. Kelly Clarkson is the best thing to come out of idol, and will probably be the best by the time Idol is over. She has the voice, performer, personality, everything.
Go David Archuleta!
He'll be a Josh Groban style Artist if he's wins.
Yeah except it hasn't ever been wrong about an American Idol finale, but whatever....
Eww.. Fuck No
David Archuleta is a Creepy little bitch. I hate him and his voice.. It just makes my skin crawl. I LOVE David Cook though
David A Sucks.. He always sings these old depressing songs. And he is WAY creepy.. I HATE him!
LOVE David Cook though
I have nothing against David Archuletta's singing..I think he's a great singer, although every performance sounded exactly the same, I just really dislike his personality! So much that I cringe when he is on stage and talking, or moving, the kid is afraid of his own damn shadow. How will he survive if he wins? I won't watch tv for weeks, seeing him on all the media and talkshow programs saying ummmmm yeahhh..geeee.. heeheee.
I honestly dont mind who wins, i'm sure both will have limited success, but i just cant stand seeing david archuletta on tv, except when he's singing, even then he looks awkward.
Tonight should be fun! THEN thankfully its over, and crappy Canadian Idol starts
At least Archuleta stopped licking his lips while he sings. I hated that
I dont know who is going to win. David A did better last night but many think Cook has been better in general
At least the results arent predictable like Kristi on Dancing with the Stars (yeah Kristi)
Then its Cdn Idol where the host Ben Mulroney speaks over people's audtions. MAybe they stopped that last year but its annoying as hell
Imagine (pun intended) Ryan Seacrest doing avoice over as David Archuleta is beginning to sing for the judges
Ryan: "This isnt David's first time in front of judges. David was on Star Search"
Archuleta is a smarmy little closet case.
He has ZERO charisma and ZERO stage presence. Remember, guys, the full name of the show is American Idol: The Search For A Superstar. In order to be a superstar you need to have charisma, stage presence, and somewhat of a pleasant personality. Archuleta has NONE of this.
If he DOES win, he will flop as hard as Taylor Hicks did, while Cook sells millions, a la Daughtry. Period.
if people are just going by cook's performance last night thats just fucking stupid, in the long run he has blown archuletta out of the water. they both have talent but win or lose david cook will sell millions while like it says in the comment above mine david archuletta will become taylor hicks if he wins.
I think David Arhuleta did a better job last night.
