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.
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 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!
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
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 didn't see the show so I can't comment on last nights performances but based on the entire season I think David C is the better overall singer/performer and should win!!! Simon picked him to win on Ellen's show so I think his comments last night might have been to shore up the vote for him since alot of people like to vote against him!!
i don't watch idol, i only know what's going on because the media shoves it down my throat...anyway, form what i do know about it the boy with the annoying stage dad is going to win...the next lohan family is upon us
Someone get the David Cook dancing bottomless commerical onto JUB ASAP
With str8 men, all you need is time.
DialIdol.com was right on the money:
SiriusXM 11am to 3 EST
David Cook is great, the rightful winner!
Someone asked me once how I could know that I'm gay if I've never slept with a woman. I've never shoved shards of glass into my eye, either, but I don't have to give it a shot to know that it's not for me.
It's like I said in the other entertainment forum (There is a David Cook thread) the rock surgence is continuing in mainstream music and the voters have decided to vote for a good rock singer like David Cook. It was pretty much of a shocker that David Archuletta didn't win American Idol 7. I didn't think any of us had any chance of expecting Cook to win this competition.
Daughtry might just have a bit of competition with David Cook. I do expect his albums to really sell. However, I don't think he is going to top Daughtry's sales when Daughtry have sold millions of albums over a few months. I still know he is going to have a succesful career.
I wonder how is stage dad is reacting?
^^^^Ha! Good one NYCGuy. I bet he was cussing under his breath saying "You damn bitch I told you what you should have done you MF!" I love Archuletta but his dad seriously needs to lay off him because at least he came this far in the competition for him to throw a huge fit.
gee i wonder how stage dad Jeff would react if in fact his son is truely gay im not sayin he is although im thinkin he is. It's 1 of those what if questions I already feel sorry for the kid having a dad like that. I'm feeling him if he doesn't wanna come out (if he is) I get the impression hez scared of his dad as well
Personally, I like both Archie and Cookie. However, with that said, I only voted for Cook for one reason - while both can sing, Archie is totally boring to watch (IMHO). Will I download his CD whenever it comes out? Yes, most likely. Will I want to see him in concert after that CD is released? Nope. I've already downloaded Cook's self released CD before it was taken down from Amazon and love it. Would I see him live when his next CD comes out? Definitely. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Cook is extremely HOT!
aw I love Archie. Congrats to DC though.
thank god archuleta lost.
he may have had a better performance last night but cook definitely showed how great he is all through out the season.
remember billie jeans, hello, and that mariah song?
well, speaking as someone who has an overbearing parent at home, much like david's father (or at least the way he is rumored to be) it is hard for me to take any sort of compliment now because one of my parents constantly put me down.
if, and IF is the key word, david a.'s father has been verbally degrading him for a given period of time, it explains why david a. looks genuinely surprised (and in some cases on the verge of tears) when anyone pays him a compliment.
i am just expressing my opinion. interpret any way you like.
A message board where people treat each other decent (sp)? . The message board I used to go to . . . 3 people said I should kill myself and only one was bannedCalling another user's post a "STUPID statement" is very close to a ToS violation at JUB. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. No one should have their opinion labeled "stupid."
I like this place.
I thought David A might win after his performances Tuesday. I think hs lack of personality, and his dad, worked against him
iaminvisibleman's post was right:
and prior to watching the finale, this was INCONSIDERATE.
author should have at least used :SPOILER ON AI FINALS RESULT..instead of blurting it out.
what a debbie downer.
I really wanted David A to win. But what can you do? David C is good.
Until they make it where only one vote can come from one phone number, than it is bullshit anyhow. I stopped counting at between 30 and 40 on how many times I voted. They either need to make it one vote each or have the judges actually crown the winner.
its all bullshit until they have only ONE vote per phone number!!!
After last night, I actually loved them both!!! They both deserved to win.
Apparently David A already signed a record deal. This is the fastest the runner up has ever been signed. According to his family, he had 6 offers, lol.
I think it has a lot to do with the state of AI. And not just AI- other reality shows have become stale and this season we have seen some changes: America's Next Top Model- a plus size women; Dancing with the Stars- only the second woman in six seasons; Survivor- An all woman final four and now a rocker winning a pop singing competition. I think they just are trying to get fresh again. Let's see what hapens next season. I wonder what's going to go down with So You Think You Can Dance?
I think id DC nailed himself on a cross and bleed to death that still wouldn't be enough emotion for u bitches.
