Here comes David Cook.
I haven't blogged much about my American Idol obsession this season. But I just have to after last night. For my longtime blog readers, you know I love love love Clay Aiken. (yeah I know, I'm weird) But I have to say, David Cook is about on the same pedestal. (Sorry Val) The guy gives me chills. He is so original, so fresh, so –– wow.
For those who are not American Idol watchers, you may not know the story behind this brilliantly talented man. (Are you a man at 25?) His brother is undergoing chemo for a second diagnosis of brain cancer, which has spread to his spine. This road to stardom is not only filled with the stress of the show, but with stress and anxiety of his brothers illness. Last night's show was a special one. His brother was able to take a break from chemo and come from Indiana to see his David perform in the final 7. No wonder last night he had tears in his eyes when he closed his song.
There is no doubt in my mind that he is a clear cut winner. However we all know that many times the best don't win (look at Clay and Daughtry).
For those who have not seen what this guy can do, grab your laptop computer and youtube his past weeks songs. For those who may have missed last night, here is a review. Enjoy!
