What I'd like to say is...Tuesday coming into the finals of said show (well I guess it was never said...but you know what I mean), I really didn't care which David would be America's favorite. Both of them are talented, both of them are well-liked and both have promising futures.
But come on, America...did anybody watch Tuesday's show?? Archuleta killed it. Just to preface my statements though, I totally prefered Cook for most of the season and though obviously Archuleta was good, his voice was just too honey smooth for me and too safely kept in that high tenor range. He just didn't have that edge for me that I wanted to hear from him. But over the last few weeks, Cook started to plateau, singing flat high notes and dull performances. And then Archuleta comes in with a breathtaking performance of "And so it goes"...it was amazing...I think we watched it 4 times. And then the finale...did anybody in America watch it??? Archlueta freaking ripped up his first song, letting go all inhibition and and gave a truly inspiring performance. My jaw dropped. And as much as I wanted Cook to show us his game, he awfully underestimated. I was almost certain coming into the show tonight what the result would be...honestly I thought it was a given.
But then the moment Simon started re-calling his statements from last night, I knew something shifty was happening. I just don't understand how after that, 12 million votes could swing the result in the wrong direction. Seriously, were all of those people deaf? Maybe the voters were from Florida.
So this is my shout out to Archie...who proved himself Tuesday night in that show that...it's not like I watch every week. He should've won. And America is stupid. The end.
