David Cook Leads American Idol Charge in Omaha

by at . Comments

He's not related to Kristy Lee Cook.

Unless you're simply going by the impressive audition and rumor that he's made it to the top 24 on this year's American Idol, just like the aforementioned early favorite on the show.

But David Cook has a fresh look and sound, as proven last night when he turned Bon Jovi's classic "Livin on a Prayer" into his own, unique serenade of the judges.

It worked. Simon, Randy and Paula all moved David on to Hollywood, anointing him as the only serious contender from an otherwise lackluster group of auditions in Omaha.

David Cook wants to be the next Chris Daughtry. It's early, but: so far, so good.

As American Idol auditions move to Miami tonight, we yearn for a better crop of singers and/or weirdos. Last night didn't have enough of either.

Hi, my two year old son is guitar playing David Cook fan...he tells everyone that he loves American Idol and David Cook is the best. Every performance has been great, but Lionel Richie's, HELLO, was unforgettable, when David sang it, it gave me goosebumps! I wish him luck in this competition, no matter what he will be a star. I'll be buying his c-d's!

I am a 42 year old mom who loves Idol and I knew from his audition David would excel. He has the potential to be an awesome rockstar , If he makes the right kind of choices, he will someday be the classic rock my kids are listening to when they are my age!

I'm jealous of the chick who went to high school with David.
By far the best in the competition.
Lacking charisma?
I think not.
Did you see the half smile and wink through Eleanor Rigby? Charismatic. AND sexy. Very sexy.
The one thing that has been overrated about him so far, is the mention of Daughtry. There's no need for comparison between Chris and David-two very talented (good looking) men.
Good luck David, though I'm sure you don't need it. :)
