    David Cook won because he showed creativity, diversity and WAS WILLING to take risks and do songs out of the POP only genre. Sometimes it did not work as well, but hey we all have a bad day. In the future he should develop more of his soulful and blues side...

    D.A. has a nice melodic voice, but he plays it safe with songs that work within his range. He's just not developed enough to create his own style.

    Message to the music columnist Jim Farber of the NY Daily News...D.C. is NOT a GRUNGE singer. Too bad you weren't listening to him...or maybe you lost a bet and lots of money...Why else were you SOOOOO ANGRY that he won.

    I was pumped to see Cook win. I tried my best to put this into words, and I could not help doing so from my own perspective as a Christian in a blog post called "Going the Distance: Having Eyes to See Amazing Grace in American Idol". If you are interested, you can read it here:

    I almost didn't believe it. I'm a DC fan through and through but I was bracing myself for Ryan to announce Archie won. You know what? CONGRATS! I should have had more faith in you and your awesome voice!
