American Idol Update

Alright American Idol fans...I have an official favorite.
This guy nails it EVERY week! Tonight, he took Micheal Jackson's Billy Jean and turned it into an AMAZING rock song. In my humble opinion, he is the most developed artist of the group. He can sing, he can perform, he can take an old song, recreate it and turn it into something new and artistic and interesting. Well done, David Cook! Well done!

Regarding last week, can I just ask, what kind of a world do we live in that Carly is in the bottom three? She may not be my favorite, but the girl can sing, and there are a couple folks in there that deserve to go way before she does! I've been sick about it all week. Just had to get that off my chest.

And friends, I'm not the only silly goose into AI! Go here to see how Casey's ranked the contestants. ;)

Seriously, David Cook is incredible! After last night, he STOLE my vote away from Carly. I was a big fan of hers. I still like her, but I appreciate David's musical artistry more than any other contestant EVER on American Idol.

'Billy Jean' was stinkin' amazing last night. I totally called and voted for him and I NEVER vote.

Chris Cornell covered this song just recently (Billy Jean), and oddly enough David Cook's arrangement sounds VERY similar to his. It's not really a bad thing, it's just Cook shouldn't be getting as many props for this "unique cover" and "turning it into his own" as people are giving him.

Still a fabulous performance though, and still the best singer last night. So I agree.

Alright folks, it seems that my new friend above is correct. Go here
http://www.chriscornell.com to get the scoop. The good thing is that it seems David had Mr. Cornell's permission/blessing to use his version, and it was announced by Ryan, it was just hard to hear. Oh well. That does make me a little sad that it wasn't David's genius creation, but he still did awesome, and you can't say that he doesn't have good taste in music. He's still got my vote.

I agree Steph, David was amazing on AI last night. We had to rewind and watch it several times.

Will you be depressed when AI concludes their current season? My coworkers and cousin all like David Cook.

Had lunch w/ Mrs Kathleen and Denise today, they say hello...
