Who Will Be the Next American Idol?

We're down to the two Davids after weeks of competition and, just like last year, I actually think we have two good, different options on our hands with these finalists. Will it be the squeaky clean kid with the pretty voice, or the rock-and-roll bartender with a knack for turning any song into his own?

ugh! DA us SO boring and predictable, I honestly can not believe that NONE of the judges ever called him on that! He is a great singer but I think in order to be an American Idol he need a few years to mature. Please oh please don't let him win!!!

It probably will be David Cook, but I don't care either way...

I want David Cook to win and I think he will.

I hope it's David Cook and not David Archuleta. I haven't watched any of American Idol this season, but David Archuleta just annoys me.

as much as i love cook (esp. over the other david, who i dont hate but definitely dont love) he's not going to win. the "rocker" type never wins. plus, it's obvious that there are too many teenyboppers who only vote for the "cutest guys" (who can only be about 18 years old, max) or the prettiest looking girls. but im not sad, since cook doesnt even fit the whole American Idol persona. he's clearly going to have a record deal whether or not he wins, and he never originally intended to even BE on idol. so let the archie kid win and make one hit album that is popular with the 13 year olds until a new idol can replace him next year.

I think that David Cook should win, but either way... they both get record deals, one just gets more marketing and press behind him. I think that David Cook, like Daughtry, has the talent and uniqueness to pull above the marketing crap and sell records anyways.

I haven't watched a single second of Idol this season, so I know I probably shouldn't have an opinion. I just want to say those are two of the goofiest looking finalists yet... well, besides Justin Guarini and Clay Aiken... but still, the picture made me laugh. Everything from their hair to their clothes just screams "American Idol has fashioned us how they want us to be... we are not original, we are not allowed to have any opinions of our own". I've gotten so sick and tired of what American Idol produces... only one I have ever liked is Kelly Clarkson.

American Idol is a singing competition. While both Davids are great, David A. has an unbelievable voice that is in no comparison to any other idol. He is truely gifted and deserves to win.

I can't believe that show last night. David Cook is by far the better entertainer. We sit through weeks of Idol and then the judges do all they can to swing the vote. In my opinion Simon should not be permitted to judge the last show ! Leave it to the public without any of his comments. I am thinking of turning that show off in the future if this baby faced kid and his father win this.

As much as I want David Cook to win, I think it will be David A. Boo! TEAM COOK!

Both of them kind of bug me. I guess Cook is marketable, but Arch has all the little teeny boppers. I have a feeling he might win.

GO COOK! I am hoping it is him, but the judges seemed to be loving Little D last night.

Where's the who cares option? Neither one does it for me at all.

Little David bugs me so much. He sings songs that are far too old for a 17 year old but never seems to hear anything about that from the judges. I'm tired of Randy saying he could sing the phone book too. And he's such a dork when he talks. I think his father has too much control over him. Team Cook!

Me: "I really think David A. is going to win because he has all the little girls voting for him." Roommate: "Well, David Cook has all the big girls voting for him!" HAHAHA. I hate to say it, but I still think the little girls will win out...booo.

why isn't there an "i don't give a f---' option? So Dancing with the F-Listers is over, now its one down, one to go.

I agree with almost everyone. There's a chance David A will win just because lots of people love him, but Cook is the better performer and better "Idol". But David A could have a good career too, just not the idol-y sort. But what do I know? All the old ladies at the dog park love him :-)

Cook. Archuleta has a good voice, but Cook is more marketable and will sell more records.

I would rather see DC win, however I feel that every teenage girl in America voted as many times as possible for DA. DC is a much better entertainer. One of the best I've ever seen on idol. If he does not win, I'll still buy his first, second and third album!

I prefer David C, but I don't want him to win. I think he'll be better off not working within the whole commercialised structure of AI, which works well for the type of performer is/has become. I think David C is better off waiting the year (at least that's the time they have to wait in the UK), writing his own stuff, and then releasing stuff.

They both bug me, but David c bugs me just a little less.

Before tonight, either of them was fine. But now, I just can't go on to see David A win. Tonight was boring for him and he sang the same sounding songs. 'Imagine' wasn't as good as the first time for me, maybe because we'd heard it before and it isn't mind-blowing anymore. I adore David C's first song, it was amazing! His second song was OK, but he was way better than Archuleta. I admire him for his third song, because he didn't choose to sing a song he had sang previously and I get his point. Why repeat an old, mind-blowing performance when it was already amazing?
