David Cook is the Next American Idol

David Cook is the Next American Idol

It’s down to the final three contestants this season on American IdolDavid Archuleta, David Cook and Syesha Mercado. But who’s going to win America’s heart?

Syesha definitely has singing chops but that’s hardly enough for Idol viewers anymore at this stage of the game. Archu-D2 was the early frontrunner in the competition but Cook definitely has pulled ahead with his carefully chosen arrangements and rock star performances.

Can Cook take the cake? Most likely.

Last week, interestingly enough, Archu-D2‘s “stage dad from hell” was prohibited from working (read: attending arranging sessions) with his son on the show. David sure has a lot more pressure on him this week without his dad’s guidance this week on how to perform songs and what vocal changes to make. May the best David win!

And if Cook‘s rendition of Mariah Carey‘s “Always Be My Baby” hasn’t been playing on your iPod non-stop, something’s wrong with you! Listen here.

Tune into an all-new American Idol tonight @ 8PM ET/PT on FOX. Video links to the performances will be posted, as usual!

..based on your opinion.

He deserves it because Archuleta is WEAK WEAK WEAK. He only gets voted in because all the girls like him and he’s just so boring. Syesha is fine, but nothing worthy of winning, but neither was Jordin.

David Archuleta is the next american idol. David Archuleta deserves to be the next american idol and he is just amazing. I support David Archuleta all the way and i will always be one of his biggest fans.

Both Davids are good. If Cook wins AI will own him and ruin him and NEVER let him be the front man of a band. That is his true calling. He is made to be another Bon Jovi or Daughtry. If Archuleta wins they can mold him into whatever they want as he needs the guidance. I will be fine with whoever wins, but I don’t want them to ruin Cook like they did Bice.

DAVID ARCHULETA!

definately archy

David Archuleta is hardly an American IDOL! He is a kid, a baby, has no maturity and only very young, screaming teeny boppers could relate to him or buy his music. Michael Johns was the best…he was booted out because he was Australian…he had the most talent and potential to be a rock Idol. Archuleta….a cute kid but hardly an icon!

That is your opinion. David A is the best. He has a beautiful tone to his voice. I love David Cook too, but David A is my favorite by far.

hheheh!!!! i play “always be my baby” in my ipod nonstop!! i love david cook!!

David A has to win! He is sooooo amazing!

cook won this competition, hands down.

syesha – puh-leasee – no chance.

Archuleta – fake – phony.

David A!! If David C wins his head will get even bigger than it already is!

Carrie Lover @ 05/13/2008 at 4:02 pm

DAVID ARCHULETA WILL WIN!!!! <3333333

What will all the screaming girls do when they find out Archuleta’s gay?

COOK ALL THE WAY! Although it would probably be better for his career if he DIDN’T win…

ARCHIE!!! VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!

If Archu-D2 wins, we’ll KNOW the show is rigged. He looks like he’s trying to take a dump everytime he smiles. David Cook is the only logical choice. He could record an album now and it would be a chartbuster.

ARCHULETA!!!

Gotta say that little Davie A. would be great performing at Disney World or Disney Land or on one of their cruise ships.

It’s a 50/50 chance. But if I bet money, i would go with a talented youth with wholesome character. In the pop world, over 30 becomes more and more difficult to be a mega hit singer. People don’t wait for you and keep wanting fresh looks all the time.

David Archuleta is only 17 years old. He is very coachable. His inborn voice is hard to find. He has proven he can appeal to not only teens but adults. I am not a teen. And his pure pop voice always hits hard my inner core.

david archuleta definitalyy!!
he’s sooo talented and i love hearing his voice

david cook is alright, and i do love his rendition of always be my baby, but in my opinion, i think he is cocky

DAVID ARCHULETA BECAUSE HE IS MORE VERSITILE AND DEFFINETLY CAN HIT THE HIGH NOTES….VOTE DAVID ARCHULETA!

DAVID ARCHULETA!!!
