I fell for David the first time I heard him open his mouth on Idol. At this
point, it doesn't really make much difference in who wins since both of them
will be given a recording contract and will be indentured servants to Idol as
they have been since they signed the dotted line. And what does the vote prove
anyway except who has the fleetest fingers and the patience to vote for 4 hours.
#1 place would obligate David to the Idle producers for too long.Vote for
Cook, so Archuleta will have more choice!
I'm amazed at how some fans don't seem to have a clue as to vocal quality. Of
course, very few people have an ear for the right notes, let alone other
qualities of a singing voice. IMHO Archelata is far and away the best singer in
this competition. While not as original as Cook, he misses fewer notes with
less effort. He will sell millions of records and will be remembered 30 years
from now. Cook will be forgotten after 10 years.
To Couga Keith: Do not underestimate David A. he hasbeen singing since 7
yrs old and won the star search competition. Vocal paralysis put his dream on
hold. The fact is this kid possess a beautiful voice that able to touch ppl's
heart and soul, a rare gift that could only be Godsend.He's only 17. There is
something in him that no one can take away and that is, the drive to become a
good singer, a lifelong dream from a 17 years old is being fulfilled before our
eyes. When given the opportunity, he will unleash his full potential after the
idol is done. I found out the contestants have to follow rules in song
choices,etc which limit their ability to showcase their talent.DC is now
known to have produced an album and had sold MP3 while in competition.
Therefore, it is not surprising his popularity has grown due to exposurein
AI which in turn had a direct impact in the sell out of his album. Observation
had been made by many during TOP 3 episode that the producer was obviouslyin favor of DC to win the title...
That Cook kid screams most of his songs while Archuleta is actually singing his
songs. Joe Strummer had a better voice than Cook's.
The end game has nothing to do with talent. It has to do with whomever the
people vote for. if you want to know which one is going to come out the
"American Idol, crunch the numbers." There are millions of LDS people in this
country, and millions more in the world. if you only get half their vote, you
have a big edge. I see it as being a lock for David Archuleta. It has already
been decided. the next show will not mean a thing. the people at this point
have made their choice. I personally would like it to be Archuleta. I think
the young people need a role model like him.
I'm as much of a Utah homer as the next guy, but would you buy a David A. CD
unless you needed help sleeping. Come on, he's got a good pure voice, but it's
all so boring!At least David C. is interesting.
The AI game is obvious. ppl are not dumb. They areintelligent enough to
see what went on on the TOP 3episode. The song choice made by the judges
and producers clearly showed the favor went to DC. ButGod can work in
mysterious way. He will know what is best for our David A. David is happy no
matter whatthe outcome is next week.
Whoever said David Cook will win if the show is about artistic ability either
has a weird sense of what is art, or has his Davids confused.When's
the last time you heard any vocalist as good as David Archuleta - anywhere?
Chances are you haven't unless you're an opera buff.David Cook is a
Kurt Cobain wannabe, and what he does is not very unique and requires little
talent. Pick a random block in Seattle and start opening garage doors and
you'll find 4 or 5 exact copies of David Cook.No, if this show's
about talent, David Archuleta will win the thing going away. If it's about
popularity, it's David Cook's to lose.
I am looking forward to Syesha's future success-I am hoping she will go the
Broadway route-it is a PERFECT fit for her. Great Job Syesha!!
Syesha definitely had a good voice but the girl was not memorable. There was
nothing that made her stand out. She should have been off the show many
contestants ago. As far as her picking an Idol winner, why should she do that.
The voters are so fickle that they could end up voting for Simon Cowell instead
of one of the contestants.
Way to go Syesha, she has become good friends with both of them, this is
ridiculous for press to even ask such a stupid question! I agree with Anonymous,
DAVID IS GOING TO WIN THE COMPETITION! Personally I think if it's a
popularity contest David Archuletta will win it. If it's based on over all
talent and artistic ability, well sadly for those on the Wasatch Front, we will
see David Cook win it. He has been the most "Original" and has really shown the
side of an artist. Where our David Archuletta as great of a career as he might
have in front of him and as talented as he is, isn't the Musical ARTIST that D.
Cook is, or at least he hasn't shown it.Before you get all over me,
I know he can play the piano, but what songs has he "Changed" and "Adapted" to
make his own? D. Cook has done that to almost everything he has sung, or should
we say "Performed". With his OWN BAND behind him I think he will be a ROCK &
ROLL Staple in America's Future!
Good answer! I like that one.
As far as I'm concerned, the top 3 are all winners and each has a bright future
in entertainment.Reports are coming out in the news that the Idol
producers are biased towards David C. I think that was somewhat evident in the
producers choice of song in last Tuesdays show. The song the producers chose
for David A was the worst possible song that chould have been selected for him
to sing.Looking at the bright side, David A would probably be better
off by NOT being the Idol champion. He'll still end up with a record contract
and probably a better one at that.My only hope is that David A would
NEVER, EVER feel that he let anyone down should he end up in second. David, you
have made everyone at Murray and in Utah proud!! Regardless of the final
outcome, we love you and appreciate your hard effort and sacrifice! You have
represented your hometown so well. From the bottom of my heart (and I'm
confident that I speak for the rest of the hometown crowd), THANK YOU DAVID and
Amen Syesha! You by far were the best as far as our family voted. Syesha is an
entertainer and performer and she will no doubt have a great career in the
singing business. Go girl. Yea Syesha.
She should just reply, "Why David of course" and be done with it.
