David Cook is a Pizza Person

David Cook is a Pizza Person

The paparazzi are already on his trail and he hasn’t even won American Idol. Yet!

Idol finalist David Cook and a few friends grab slices of pizza at the Beverly Center Mall’s Sbarro pizzeria in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

During next week’s season finale, Cook will sing first since David Archuleta won a coin flip and chose to sing second.

“I’ve always looked up to Cook and admired all the work he’s done with his talent,” Archuleta says. “To be here standing next to him is just unbelievable.”

Cook only had nice things to say back: “I consider it a huge honor to share the stage with the kid. He’s the real deal. All the buzz coming in, he deserves.”

    What they really want to say is:

    Cook: This kid will probably win but I don’t care. I’ll sell more records. He’s creeping me out though, always staring at me with that blank stare.

    Archuleta: David C is so handsome and I want to kiss his hair. Oh my god, is that wrong? Did I say that out loud? Where’s my teddy bear?

    I feel bad for Cook’s brother. He totally stole his thunder!!!!

    Here comes the sibling rivalry…you can’t deny it.

  • Sizz

    love him. He deserves to win!

  • lila

    It looks like it will be a great finale. I hope to see the AI concert this summer; it’s usually a fun show. Couldn’t believe the reception Chris Daughtry got and he didn’t even win!

  • jenna

    Everybody please vote for DC this Tuesday! He’s the best and he deserves to win so much.
    He’s already a star, now we just have to make it official!

    GO Cook! FTW!

    BTW – He’s hot as hell in these pics. Raaaaaawr.

  • Jennifer W

    I love David Cook And David Archuleta and I know that no matter who wins next week both david’s will be huge in the music business. I hope that Archuleta wins it but either way I happy because I know that either way it wont be the last we hear from them so im cool.

  • Teresa

    I doubt there’s sibling rivalry (any more than normal) between David and his brother (the one who also tried out for Idol). Their other brother’s illness probably puts that type of thing in perspective. It certainly seems to have done so for David.

  • CHRIS

    DAVID, D. ARCHULETA IS NOT A KID, HE IS A TEENAGER. AND HE MIGHT WIN, HE WORK HARD AS WELL AS YOU. I LIKE BOTH OF YOU, YOU BOTH A WINNER.

  • kaTA

    The only idol who’s album I’m actually going to buy. He’s gorgeous as well.

  • May

    Man BOOBS!

  • May

    Though I think he’s far more better than Archuletta. The younger David needs more time to practice and not breathe a lot every verse.

    What a showdown it’s going to be next week.

  • http://www.jamieinsider.com 007

    lol for a second there I thought this post was about Dane Cook.

  • Lella

    David Cook is so so talented. I love hearing him sing. He should win, but he probably will come in second. I’ll vote for him, I always do.

  • tracy

    man, he better win! archie is a sweetheart, but DC has earned the crown. and he is ridic amounts of HOT.

  • pinkydoo

    OMG talula! I nearly fell off my chair! Too funny!

    Unfortunately for David Cook, there are plenty of little girls out there fantasizing about David A. American Idol is in part a talent compeitition, but it’s mainly a popularity contest. David Cook should win because he’s an all around performer and will sell a boatload of records. David A. can sing but has zero stage presence. He’s bland and boring on stage. He’s missing that superstar quality that David Cook most definitely has, plus Cook seems grounded whereas many live in fear for David A.’s well being (physically and emotionally) if he doesn’t do well – after all, he has the stage father from hell riding his coat tales.

    Personally, I almost hope David Cook doesn’t win the final because he’ll get a much better record deal and not be controlled by the Idol machine on his first album after the show. Analog Heart was on Amazon and he outsold both Madonna and Mariah Carey. If he comes in second, he’ll have a multi-million dollar record deal within hours of coming in second and he’ll get to do it HIS way.

  • Robbo

    I think both of them are so talented- but has anyone noticed how BIG David Cooks head is?

    Next to Ryan Seacrest it looks like an orange on a toothpick. Unless Ryans head is really really tiny!?

    Something nice about Archie and Cookie during the Top 3 results night (shows both of them are really humble!):

    Archie: When Ryan Seacrest announced the names of American Idol’s two finalists Wednesday, each thought he was going to hear another’s name.
    “I couldn’t believe it. I thought he was going to say David Cook,” says David Archuleta, 17, named the first finalist as Cook and Syesha Mercado awaited their verdict.During an interview shortly after the show, Archuleta said: “I just feel like shock. Am I really in the top two of American Idol?”
    Only one can win, but the finalists praise each other. “I’ve always looked up to Cook and admired all the work he’s done with his talent,” Archuleta says. “To be here standing next to him is just unbelievable.”

    Cook: Cook, 25, says he thought he would be going home. “I thought my ticket was punched. I honestly did,” he says. “Syesha is an amazing performer, and she really hit her stride in the last two, three, four weeks.”

    Hey, I came across this at the main American Idol forums for Archie. Apparently, he has an alternative duet album out in Itunes. The 2 songs are not bad, I like the Angels in the Alleyway in particular. He should make his future album like this and definitely not R&B (With You) disaster he did.

    If you go onto iTunes, search for Merrick Christensen – Fear vs. Faith (feat. David Archuleta) and you will see that the album has him doing a duet with Merrick Christensen. The album was released on May 11th, 2008

    With this is all over, there are going to be a ton of women going “What the hell was I thinking? That guy is not even a little bit hot.”

  • krung krung

    i am an Archuleta fan but have to be honest Cook deserves to win the title American Idol, hope he wins too, how old is he neway?

  • carrie cook

    i hear fro a reliable source carrie underwood wants to sing a duet with david cook after idols. i wonder if they would hook up that be nice

  • brenda

    I hate that guy, he’s so cocky. He will be one of those people in a couple of years who will be an asshole, and refuse interviews and shun people because he will be to good for everyone and everything. You can see it in him right now, just look at the picture.

  • Helena

    I’d suck his cook.

  • kathryn

    i heart you DAVID COOK

  • LJ

    lol Talula, so funny. David Cook is real talent and David A is ..well teenager boy with good voice and nothing more..

  • Stella

    He does not look happy about having the paps follow him, but he better get used to it! He’s gonna be a huge star.

  • Noelle

    He must win next week but people need to vote. I’m scared the little girls will make Archuleta win. Cook deserves it!

  • mars

    Both guys in the finale deserve it. But Cook will be ridiculously successful even if he doesn’t win. Adorkable to the max!!!

  • Meg

    I’m rooting for him, But I actually agree with #40. I think he is the type that will bash Idol after he becomes successful. Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly have all said things that make them seem ungrateful.

  • Rae

    He looks hot. The Archu-bot freaks me out so I hope Cook wins.

  • Angela

    Damn, he is sooo sexy!!

  • Angela

    Brenda, if you don’t judge a book by it’s cover and actually watch Idol, you will know how nice and humble he is.
