The Rightful Winner of Idol '08

David Cook is one of those reality show winners that you can actually imagine having a very successful career after the hype about him winning has died down. If you aren't familiar of him from American Idol, search for his performances of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby or Lionel Richie's Hello. He really stood out as someone who could become an incredibly successful recording artist, not just another contestant on a reality show who would put out one CD and then slowly fade from the public's memory. He certainly deserved to win the show. And it seems that American agrees. He won by 12 million votes. And okay, so the song isn't brilliant lyrically. It's a cheesy song, typical of any reality show, but what can you expect from a coronation song. On the show, Cook dealt with all the cheesy group numbers and Ford commercials, etc. thrown at him, and he managed to keep his credibility as an actual musician. It's the way that Cook sings the song that makes it so good. He can make any song sound good, no matter how cheesy; again, see his performance of Lionel Richie's Hello. When he puts out his first CD, he's sure to become a worldwide star, similar to the way Leona Lewis has. The Time of My Life is a good debut single, and for 79p, it's well worth the money. But it's his first CD that will really show the world how good he is. If it's anything like the studio versions of the songs he performed on American Idol, or his pre-idol CD Analog Heart, it's going to be amazing. Plus, you can't complain when he's that good looking, can you? =]

He had me at Hello!

Why does Itunes USA have the competition downloads and in the UK we just get the winning single - Itunes please let us buy the studio versions of David's performances - they were fantastic and I would like to buy them rather than just listen to them on YouTube please. Followed the competition avidly this year just to hear what DC was going to do next - fantastic voice - well done.


FINALLY iTunes has something from this season's American Idol....I know it's just the winning song but it's much better than what we got last year! I reckon we should be able to download all the tracks from the show next season! I was so disappointed this year as I couldn't purchase any of the songs from the show! It was only available in America! Finally iTunes has done something sensible!!! =)
