There, I said it, I'm out there. David Archuleta is very sweet and he has a lovely voice (he reminds me of a baby Josh Groban) but David Cook is hot. He's Randy Jackson, "that's a hot one tonight!" kind of hot. He's what's current kind of hot. And he's just good old fashioned hot, hot.
He's my new Blake Lewis.
He won't win though. David Archuleta will win. And that's okay. Cook will have a fabulous career without the burden of the now infamous prison-like Idol winner contract and I predict that he'll eventually even give Chris Daughtry a run for his money when it comes to former Idol contestant record sales.
The worst part of Tuesday night will be cringing as poor Cook has to sing whatever sappy power-ballad the Idol producers have chosen for the finale song this year. Remember poor Blake having to struggle through "This Is My Now" last spring? Ouch.
