    Parts of this show remind me when I was really sick (had major surgery) and they gave me a very strong painkiller and I was really in another zone. It is really over the top at times!

    By 12 MILLION votes!

    And......my last spoiler:


























    Simon APOLOGIZED before they announced the results. He told Cook that he went back and watched last night's show and thought he was borderline disrespectful to Cook last night! I thought that was appropriate and I am glad he did so!

    I am so happy Cook won. I thought all the teenage girls would text Archuleta to a win for sure!

    I think I am falling in love with David Cook. He is pretty hot!! And I love the little grin! Sorry... long day, LOL. But, it is weird because I thought he was hideous in the beginning. Amazing what a stylist can do!

    my first thought was that the judges, or at least Simon was told that David Cook won, so he made an apology...what do ya'll think? I don't mean to sound so skeptical of Simon's actions; cuz I really like the guy.

    I was watching Simon on Ellen yesterday when I was home sick, and he said he wanted David Cook to win! That's why I was so shocked by what he was saying last night! Reverse psychology to America maybe???

    I'm so excited for David Cook! I got a little teary eyed. I'm so glad he won.

    I wish they would just give more time to Cook and Archuleta. Honestly, the two hour torture finale is so corny. However, I felt like I was back in HS with George M. and Bryan Adams..:cool:

    I think they should also give more time to the former Idol too. Jordin is so cute and talented,she sings once and then it's see ya.. I think they should have had the former Idol announce the winner.

    I' m glad Cook won. I hope he stays as sweet as he is now.

    I was in total shock that it wasn't Archuletta. I thought for sure those teenyboppers would pull him through.

    I really don't care at all. This was the first Idol that where I had no strong opinion. I could not believe there were so many votes ya'll. That is crazy!

    Does anyone think Syesha will make it bigger than either of the Davids? I do.

    I think they should have had each David sing like three songs in a row to get that concert "feel". Because it's interesting how happens in between songs, how they interact with the crowd, etc.

    I'm still smiling about DC!! :D

    I was surprised as well. I really didn't care except DC needs to get over the fact that he's losing his hair (my opinion) I just can't stand looking at the way he combs it over & then just messy in the back. UGH...be a man and realize some mean are just not blessed with hair for their wholes lives & there is nothing wrong with it!!!

    I was so happy that DC won. First of all, DA is younger and he will have tons of oppertunity. Plus I thought that DC really had more variety, talent, and personality. As for Syesha. She's so blah and typical. I doubt we'll see her again. There are so many other people who sing the same exact way she does.

    She'll probably go to broadway....Not that that's bad, but I hope she finds something to do with her voice.

    I really did not want Archuleta to win - I think he would have had a breakdown. He is just too young and sensitive to do this right now. I love DC.

    I hated last night's show. We actually turned it off until 8:55! I did see Donna Summer and I was very impressed!

    Simon has done that before - retracted his opinion after watching the show again. I think it was with the Irish girl. All the 12 year old girls in my school had David Cook written on their notebooks. Surprising, huh?

    1) if David A. would have won his dad would have been a total control freak.

    2) I just could not see him doing a total concert, It would be boring because all his music sounded the same.

    3) David Cook is going to do well I think, like the very few winners (some did not do much with being the winner)

    I LOVE DAVID COOK!

    I wish they would release his performance with zztop on itunes. I'm only going to idols on tour because of him!

    Seriously, I'm in serious love with him!

    Yay itunes! But I never can figure out how to download songs form itunes on my mp3 player or a cd. I think I might just get an ipod with my tax money to make it all easier. :)

    I'm one of the few who don't love David Cook. Thank you, Diznee, for mentioning that about his hair. Ugh. He does seem like a nice guy, and he is entertaining, but I just don't see star potential. Oh, well.

    I agree that the 2 hour finale is torture. That stupid, stupid shameless promotion of that idiotic movie was really annoying.

    Sayesha would be great on Broadway. She's got the attitude, the voice, and the looks. Just wasn't right for AI.

    Your Welcome!!! It's not that I don't like the man...just his hair. I can't cut hair & I just want a "normal" looking cut!!! I'm thinking now that he's won they'll do something with it. Remember Taylor Hicks!?!? His was kinda long & they cut it.

    He does seem like a nice guy. I'm wondering why his voice was so gravely sounding...maybe just too much singing last week!!!
