I know I'm a little late but I thought I would share anyways.
Overall, much improved over season 6--too bad the ratings went down. It looks like the show has peaked.
The judges handed David Cook the finale. For the final performance night they were waaay harsh on him compared to previous finals. He did fine, though the other David did out sing him.
Simon was wrong about their second songs of the finale, I think. Both were meh, but Cook's was better I thought and way more marketable.
Usually second performances of the same song are never as great as the first, but Archuleta out did himself on "Imagine" I thought. Probably thee best performance of the season and it honestly should have put him over the top.
Overall, the top 12 had a lot of potential this year, but the two Davids will be the only ones with success. Syesha just doesn't stick out enough. Jason will never have mass success. I honestly think Brooke blew it for herself after starting out so good she lost it. Didn't Carly already have one CD released? Getting 6th isn't going to help her much again. Kristy could do decent in country...heck Pickler did it. And I can barely remember anyone after that.

You mean when Simon dissed him and said Archuleta was the best, lol?
I don't know, I don't think reverse psychology always works where this show is concerned. But it might have....hard to know. Cook was far far FAR superior to Archuleta - the entire season, lol - so it could just be that viewers really preferred him. But I supposed it's possible that Simon's dis pushed it over the top, considering the tone-deaf Archumania votes were real competition, lol.

I think most of us were shocked when cook seemed like they were really pimping Archie.....not to mention the hoards of screaming girlies
