David vs. David: The Idol Finale

Thank God! This season is pretty much over (just 2 hours of filler left). The Davids were both pretty damn good tonight. Even though Simon seemed to want more cheese, the fellas delivered some great performances.

My boyfriend David Cook showed he's diverse and interesting and may actually have a place on Top 40 radio. Little David showed he can sing his ass off as a vanilla pop singer who will sell about as many records as Ruben Studdard. The boxing theme was painful, as were the original songs (though I was glad the contestants picked their own songs). David Cook managed to perform the least lame original song in Idol history (even if Simon hated it), Randy managed to slide in his "you could sing the phonebook" catchphrase one more time, and Paula managed to sound crazy as always (apparently David Cook was "standing in his truth." Excellent). Despite the judges declaration of Little David as the winner, I think the vote will come down to personality. Little David seems to be missing his and David Cook has rubbed some people the wrong way this season (not me, of course. He always rubbed me the right way if you know what I mean *wink*...sorry. I'll stop now). I hope Little David takes the crown as men don't seem to fair very well as Idol winners and I hope David Cook is around for awhile (I guess. I'll never buy any of their records anyway).

Song I Would Have Sung: I'd have picked something new (as David Cook did) and performed Love Song by Sara Bareilles...because that's the kind of record I would make. Simon would've hated it.

Way to stand in your truth, Red. Way to stand in your truth.

Hey, tomorrow won't be ALL filler. The luscious Mr. Johns will be on-hand. And my hand will be on-hand if you know what I mean. Y'know? Y'know? *wink wink nudge nudge*

In case you don't know what I mean, I'm talking about masturbation. Y'know? Y'know?

Archuleta deserves to win... it did seem like he worked really hard, even with his dad banned from backstage. For the overall season I'd vote for Cook, but based on just last night I'd pick Archuleta. In the end I stuck to the same vote I made all season... which is no vote at all.

I would have picked Landed by Ben Folds.
