Rocker David Cook won the coveted title of “American Idol” on Wednesday, dealing an unexpected but decisive defeat to a silken-voiced teenager, also named David, on the most popular U.S. television show.
Cook, 25, who was tending bar and playing in a band before he auditioned for the singing competition, stood back to applaud rival David Archuleta, 17, and then bent over crying after host Ryan Seacrest said he had won by 12 million votes.
“This is amazing.
Actually…David A. is an amazing kid. It was a bittersweet win for David Cook. I wanted him to win. but David A. is amazing as well. Such a young man and so gifted. Can you imagine him in another 10 years when he has all that much more experience under his belt? Wooouw Oh yeah… and Your welcome 🙂
Congratulations David Cook…! And congratz for David A, too…
