Actually some other winners of this competition have been just as "disney" last year's winner Jordin Sparks was the same age as David and just as syrupy sweet....I just love that a rocker won this year...America chose to go a different way than usual and it was nice to see. David Cook really deserved to win...

They were another 80's band that had a couple of hits. They were a lot of fun. Kids today probably would not appreciate them now though.

I'm trying to remember my first concert ... Dave Mason?

So Cook Won? Cool, I have it recorded but haven't watched it yet. I won't spoil it for Wife.

I feel D A has the better voice but throughout this season he struck me as being bland, lacking in personality and having no real fire. Way too much of a MaMas boy. And children singing ADULT songs has always irked me.

Cook has more gut, but that wouldn't be too difficult.

I guess I should watch the finale .....


Breathless singing and big notes seemed to be the order of this season. It seemed a schtick used by most (?) of the contestants. Seemed to me breathless or loud was their major tools.

Don't worry--you're not so old, I know who George Michael is and I'm only a couple years older than LT. Name any band from the 60's, 70's, or 80's and I'll likely know or at least will have heard of them.

Back on topic...I haven't watched a single episode (no tv) but I think my mom really wants David A to win because she likes his singing, but also thinks it might be better if he doesn't win so he can focus on going on a mission to be a good example to other young men of his religion (he happens to be a member of the same religion as my mother and I).

It seems likely to me though, that he is just too young, and maybe if he tries again in a few years he will have more success.
