Archie is talented but still very immature - with the right guidance he will have a fantastic career. I will go out on a limb and say that I truly believe David Cook will be the most successful Idol yet! He appeals across the board, young and old, men and women, all like him. He is the real deal and I am glad he is the Idol. damanhugh49 7 years Cook Rocks! emalove 7 years em113, I completely agree with you. leeluvfashion 7 years I agree with the results; both finalists are very talented however David Cook experiments with the arrangement more, so that gave him an edge. I love both Davids and they will have sucess. fashion4ward 7 years I really could care less, but that pic is pretty funny... missbrooke09 7 years I didn't really care who won. I loved them both. So I was happy either way. em113 7 years I would just ignore jaycarter guys, she's obviously close-minded and all you need to do is look at her former comments and see her hypocrisy in citing christian values when discussing homosexuality, "that jessica bitch is worthless and useless. she needs to be in a coma, she'll serve the same purpose" (clearly she is a really great, kind christian woman who sets a much better example for kids than a *gasp* gay person...) pianoteacher1 7 years YAY!!! The most boring show on tv is finally over, make way for talented individuals in So you think you can dance! This show=talent+hotties!! The perfect summer reality television I think:) Does anyone notice how Simon doesn't care about the at all this season? I stopped caring a looong time ago (at least 2 seasons ago) divinedebris 7 years I don't care who that guy is, the nuzzling looks silly. I thought it was Seacrest, which would have mad it creepy, but I read some comments and people said it's not. That JayCater person, it's probably someone who made a profile just to get at other people. Yeah, I noticed that David Archuleta is probably gay, poor kid-he's from Utah. It's not an easy place to be gay, I know I grew up here and I've had many a friend who struggled with it. Don't let the comments get your goat. CaterpillarGirl 7 years oops my bad, see i dont watch the show anymore! Liss1 7 years jaycarter - what is wrong with you? why did you go on a gay rant? If he is gay, who cares? that's his business. I have a few gay family members and they are not "sinners" they are normal loving people. There was no need to bring up your hatred for gay people in this post! Lindira 7 years I was also convinced David Archuleta was going to win, due to the teeny bopper vote. I am SO glad I was wrong - David Cook is so much more talented, and seems to be genuinely happy that he won. I think so long as he asserts himself from the beginning, he should do fine. Carrie Underwood seemed to have enough creative control over her first album, as did Blake Lewis and Chris Daughtry who, although they weren't the winners, are still under an AI-related record label. jennifer76 7 years I didn't really care who won but I thought it was a great finale show. Best one in years! aoitenshi 7 years Yay for David Cook! I'm happy with the results, that's all I have to say. :D LaLaLaurie06 7 years renees3 - hear hear. Jesus did preach love... as in love everyone NO MATTER WHAT even if they do something that you disagree with. You should love them instead of pushing them away and telling them that they're going to hell unless they change. We are all sinners so stop judging other people's "sins" as though theirs are worse than yours. LaLaLaurie06 7 years jaycarter... WHAT are you talking about???? Renees3 7 years I don't understand why "gay" even came into this. I'm assuming you're refering to Ryan Seacrest as many people say he's gay, but doesn't he date women (not that that means anything). And why does it matter? They sure pushed a lot of religious songs on this season of Idol, which could offend many people just as much as a possibly gay host might. And just to remind, the only commandment Jesus taught was Love. Didn't he love the prostitutes and Judas's of the world, just like you should equally love and not judge? radarkitty 7 years David cook isn't gay not that it matters. I just saw him interviewed on my local news. He asked Kimberley Caldwell out on a date. He brought her a flower and everything. So cute! hotstuff 7 years Off topic' I glanced past the show and saw Carrie Underwood singing and I just thought, I know Kelly Clarkson is KICKING herself since she purposely distanced herself from the show and now her career is in the crapper! What a dum dum. skigurl 7 years actually, quick question - is david cook even gay? or is archie? i had no idea...they're both adorable and the girls love em! skigurl 7 years jaycarter - it sounds like you do have problems with gay people, and no matter what the media says, people will be gay or straight based on how they were born! don't be naive and narrow minded! as for the results, i didn't know what to think this time! i'm happy he won, he's talented and will have a good career because he has the "look" but archuleta is an amazing singer, and while he's often nervous and so young, if this is a pure talent competition, he was the more talented of the two. i hope he manages to still get a recording deal because his voice is magic, and it's all natural talent at that age!! i agree elizabethrae, he's not super marketable, but he's very good! ElizabethRae 7 years Archuleta could sing, but he didn't seem very marketable. Cook had a vibe and a feeling and he wasn't afraid to take risks. I'm glad he won. I think D.A. will probably still do well for himself. runningesq 7 years Gay isn't a "lifestyle", J, it's a sexual orientation. simplyfab87 7 years Umm jaycarter, what does being gay have to do with talent or American Idol? Anyway sooooooo happy David Cook won. Yay for rockers everywhere!
