Idol Thoughts

The best part of the finale was when the USC Trojan Marching Band and USC Song Girls came out and performed. AWESOME TROJANS!!!!

Well, Sean and I rushed back from Billings (getting his Typhoid shot for his mission) to watch the finale of American Idol but when we got home we found that the channel was not working due to bad weather we are having today. UGH!!! But eventually it came back on and we saw a little over half of it. I had the feeling David Cook was going to win, based on blogs and also news reports on the radio that Cook's lines were busier than Archuletas last night. I wanted Archuleta to win, but like most, I think both Davids were good and too bad there could not be two winners. I think David Archuleta sang better last night in the finals and he has the smoother voice. Even tonight Archuleta was singing better than Cook, but I think Cook has the persona people like better. I'm sure both will go on to have great singing careers. But I was disapointed that Archuleta didn't win. Lacey and I probably voted about 60 times between the two of us last night and Sean even got into voting about 15 times. But Cook won by 12 million votes! I don't think our little fingers could have made up that deficit.

You know what really gave it away that Cook was going to win? When Simon apoligized to him. I mean, Simon said Archuleta was the victor last night, but then he and the other judges were totally back peddeling right before the announcement. Hmmmmmmm.........

I have never liked both contestants before, but I totally like both this time...so I was happy either way (but I totally thought Archuletta had it in the bag).
