You tore it up and deserved to win. All season long you brought it. And on finale night you delivered. I applaud you.
I am thankful that this American Idol season is finally over. I love the show and the talent but to be honest, it is an amazing distraction. I get so little done during the season because I am so interested in how things are playing out on the show.
I know, I am drama. Stupidity wrapped in the shape of a large man. Whatever.
It is over. I am happy. For me and for David Cook. He can now be added to this list of awesome performers that have graced the American Idol stage:
- Kelly Clarkson – 2002 (Runner up: Justin Guarini)
- Ruben Studdard – 2003 (Runner up: Clay Aiken)
- Fantasia Barrino – 2004 (Runner up: Dianna DeGarmo)
- Carrie Underwood – 2005 (Runner up: Bo Bice)
- Taylor Hicks – 2006 (Runner up: Katherine McPhee)
- Jordin Sparks – 2007 (Runner up: Blake Lewis)
- David Cook – 2008 (Runner up: David Archuleta)
