After a record-breaking 97.5 million votes called in to American Idol, the winner has emerged, and that winner is David Cook! Edging out David Archuleta by 12 million votes, David Cook joins the ranks of Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, and Jordin Sparks as The American Idol.
Ramble Redhead and I both thought David Cook might have come this far and fallen short, but speaking for myself, I am so glad I was wrong! David Cook was always one of my favorites and the one that I felt worked the hardest, innovated the most, and was clearly the strongest and most deserving finalist of Season Seven. Not to mention, it could not have happened to a nicer, more humble guy.
Needless to say, his new single and his album will be on my "must buy" list when they come available.
Congratulations, David Cook! You are The American Idol!
