Randy Jackson: Dude, you are so good tonight, you are exactly what this show is about: finding the best singer we can find and the best singer of season seven is right there!

You are... delivering unbelievable songs with integrity and originality.

Paula Abdul [to David Cook]

I want to congratulate both of you. It wasn’t quite so clear as we called it. In fact, David [Cook], I will take this opportunity to apologize because I think I was verging on disrespectful with you and I don’t think you deserve that.

Simon Cowell

He's been my role model. Just a great person to look up to. He's been my big brother through this.

David Archuleta [on David Cook]

David Cook: For me it just made the whole experience full circle. In August I stood in line in Omaha, Nebraska, at 5:30 in the morning when it was raining -- with no intention of auditioning. And now I'm here, and I got to share that moment with the same two people I stood in line with seven, eight months ago.

This show is a springboard, but it’s still a crapshoot. I could easily walk out of this arena and be just a regular Joe tomorrow. I hope that’s not the case. It’s kind of up to everybody else.

David Cook

Sleep as much as you can because you don't get any sleep. It's a year later and I still haven't gotten a whole eight hours of sleep yet ... I'm still reeling from winning last year. But, I guess I would say just try and enjoy every moment you have.

Jordin Sparks [to David Cook]

It will probably be a rock record. That's a pretty vague generalization. I just want to make a record that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

David Cook

I didn’t think I’d even make it past the first round! This has been such a blessing.

David Archuleta

It’s been great at every city [so far] and so much fun … to watch other people perform and see how [the audiences] react to them.

David Archuleta [on American Idols Tour]

You should never abandon that responsibility, which is to be there, reading with your child, being supportive of your child's growth.

Usher

I think he's been pretty spot on most of the time.
