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!
