What a Cook!

David Cook was crowned the winner of American Idol, season seven. He was favorite throughout the competition, as the rocker was admittedly inspired by Chris Daughtry. He hopes to equal that star's success on the show and in his follow-up career.

Cook auditioned in Omaha and sang "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. He worked as a bartender before making it big on stage.

He released his debut album on November 18, 2008 and is dating former American Idol finalist Kimberly Caldwell. They make for a very cute couple.
