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

David Archuleta

As far as people thinking I’m pretty or something. fans. I don’t know. It’s amazing what a haircut and forgetting to shave will do.

David Cook

The fact that people were able to feel what I was trying to give off as I sing is one of the coolest and best feelings ever.

David Archuleta

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

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]

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: 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.

David Cook

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]

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

I started this season — much to Simon’s chagrin — as the word nerd and I’m absolutely at a loss for words. Thank you guys. This is amazing. Thank you.

David Cook

David Cook: You know, everybody's got an opinion, and tonight was Archuleta's night. I have to concede it: The kid came out all three songs and nailed it. But I walk away from this with my head held high.
