the world celebrates when he was hailed as the newest AMERICAN IDOL…DAVID COOK!
of course, everyone have had doubts if this bartender from Kansas City will ever win over teen age idol David Archuleta. Aside from the fact that Archuleta were far more favored by the judges during its finale round but he has a lot of screaming teen age fans who back up as well. Even i have my own doubts…. (not only me, even a music critic from yahoo has her doubts as well)
Cook is a sensitive musician/singer who sings rock and emo infused melodies who were adored by small group of people who can actually relate to the songs. the power of teens nowadays are riveting as well – look what they have done with Britney and Hillary. Their music is questionable but their star power is unsurmountable. i bet if teen agers could only vote for a President and Britney runs for local office, there are no doubt that she may have an 80% chance to win. Archuleta also sings the top 40’s while Cook loves to sing other genres even neo-collective soul that even i dont know anything with such genre.
Nevertheless, with more than 12 million votes, Cook won the crown. America made the right decision!
And he will be coming here in the Philippines with a back to back concert with David Archuleta. Marvelous concept by Jomari Yllana’s Fearless procutions and I bet tickets are running out so if I were you, get in the line for this awesome event in May 16, 2009 at the open grounds of SM Mall Of Asia
