I loved that sexy SG that was playing when Carrie Underwood was on.
She was hot to match.

Oh, and I thought David A was a douche.
Came across as very fake.

David Cook deserved to take this one.

Who won?


Yeah, who won?


And my opinion of Cook is that I really don't like him. He's just a stereotyped "rock" guy. Semi-short to medium hair, soul patch, plays Les Pauls almost exclusively (ugh...), tries too hard to promote cultural issues (not necessarily bad, but overdone, certainly), and has iffy really musical taste. Also, generic voice. Copied Chris Cornell's cover to the note. I really don't like the guy. My mom thinks he's rock. She listens almost exclusively to country.

But Archuleta isn't my cup of figurative tea, either. He looks too teen heart-throb-y (actually, they both do). Also, he kind of looks like me, only much more squint-y. I just expect him to go do a Disney movie or something.


I really don't care for either of these. The one dude with dreads, though, I could listen to him do stuff for a while, and enjoy it. Though I don't really like that he only does like one or two styles, he's actually good at them. His music makes up for whatever I may not like about him personally.

i agree. i mean his style wasnt my favorite (although he did do some nuce numbers), but Cook is too generic to win.
dude, what about an actual solo in death metal instead of that poof from linkin park. Think of Pulse of the Maggots - Bed Of Razors

Congrats to both, I didn't really care who won this year. Both are amazing. But, DC is a rocker... so...


Wow you are a f*cking moron. He is a walking cliche, from the guitar playing to the leather pants to the perfectly teased hair.

And he sounds like every singer that was in an alternative band in the '90s.
#12
If you watched closely you could see David A's father in the audience mouth the words "we were robbed" after Cook is announced as the winner.

What a douche.. I almost feel bad for David A

NOT!

you know they cut his hair and tell him what to wear... right?
and are you seriously getting on to someone for playing guitar on a guitar forum?

you my friend, and a ****ing moron.

The guy with dreads should have one. On accound of his dreads. Because dreads are awesome.

I've never actually watched the show.


But seriously, can you name a single person with dreads who is not awesome?

David Archuleta was f*cking annoying, I hate him and I think he doesn't deserve anything he has. David Cook was a pompous ass. I thought Syesha (Sp?) was the best singer...and also a hot piece of ass.

Which is a good thing since he looked much worse before.

I thought the little kid should have one because he was, out of the two choices, the better singer.

I personally only watched Jason's cover of Hallelujah out of the whole finale, and, judging from that alone, he sang better than both of the finalists.

Well, I can't really say this objectively, but from his demeanor, he just seemed to me like he was full of himself, and thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Oh yeah. Couldn't be that he was just..you know, enjoying himself and putting life into his performances.

Yes. 100% yes. That and the Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World Bruddah Iz cover should have locked it for him. Great singer, that one.

Exactly, you've got it right. I couldn't stand him. I'd bet the lefty-LP probably even adds to the generica of 90s alt...

Nobody said he wasn't...it's not like arrogance contradicts enjoyment when dealing with performances. And it's not like we can help it if he comes off this way to us...

Yes, hence why thinking he is a "rocker" is a stupid thing to think.

Quote by xrawrockkillsx

Yes I am because he played unnecessary power chords to look cool, the guitar was a prop to help fit the "rocker" image.

Honestly I didn't see much arrogance in him. I didn't watch the whole season, so I could have missed where he was spotting off. At the end it seemed to me like he wasn't expecting a win...and he looked pretty damn grateful for the experience as a whole.

Cook's really a humble, respectable, selfless musician. He sings for the love of singing. And you can tell..he's so sincere. He may have some pitch problems here and there..but I'm glad he won. He definitely deserved it.

Archie was good, but I don't think he could sell many records, and his style was limited. He did have talent though, but Cook deserved to win.

I'll admit he did look grateful tonight, probably because of the beating Simon gave him yesterday, but besides that...

Holy hell David Cook was my guitar teacher and I jumped a little when I saw this thread, I thought someone was talking about him.

But it's just American Idol...

well then how is it his fault that hes "a walking cliche?"

maybe he just feels more comfortable with a guitar in his hands? i know i do. most people that play guitar and sing feel weird when they just sing.

and what?

You don't HAVE to dress the way they tell you, you know you could quit the show once you realized how fake it was making you.

Valid point, but he only played it half of the time.

You said "and", like we are seperate people. (the moron and I)

honestly, i wanted Archie to win. he was the better singer. but I think Cook'd get more radio play and sell more records. Plus, I can relate to Cook.
