Never Happier About Being Wrong: David Cook Wins

A clear winner by 12 million votes, David Cook got a public apology from Simon Cowell for being a bit unfair and on the verge of being disrespectful last night.

Simon said that when he got home and watched it again, it was not as clear cut as the judges [Simon!] made it out to be.

America saw through that hype and atmosphere of excitement over the phenom and voted for the best all-around singer and artist left.

Congratulations, David Cook!

    CONGRATS DAVID COOK. I was ecstatic. As to Simon’s public apology, the minute he started saying that he regretted what he had said to David Cook the night before, I just knew that David Cook had won. Why else would Simon go to such lengths to apologize. He wanted to go on record so that nobody could come back later and say how much he had belittled the next American Idol. Good Show!!!!!!!!! Good Results!!!!!!! And Good Luck David Cook!!!!!!

    Jesse, Do you think the judges knew ahead of time?

    How did the walkthrough go?

    I’d love to know more about the IV interview tomorrow, because I know some IV staff in the area.

    I don’t think they knew because I don’t think that they all have the ability to remain as removed from their emotions once that knowledge is present. I don’t think Simon’s apology was any indication of knowledge, but I stand alone on that so far.

    The walkthrough was great, but Mom and K were annoyed at the woman doing it with us. I didn’t mind, though.

    Go ahead and give K a call about the interview. I’m sure she can tell you better than I can.
