Wow, did not see that coming. Glad it did though. I actually see Cook as someone I'll respect as a singer down the line. So far from Idol I respect Kelly & Carrie as singers. That's it.

I see David Cook as somebody that I can listen to down the line. It'll take a great single to get me interested but I think he actually has a future......(just as long as that single isn't "Time of My Life")in the biz. Just let him have a little creative control and I might be hooked.

Something mighty suspicious about Simon backpedaling on the previous night's dismissal of Cook RIGHT BEFORE Cook was announced. Maybe they didn't have the official disclosure from the accountants, but they knew beforehand who won.

And it was the right guy.

Utterly abysmal closing song though. That kind of schmaltzy tune is built to be licensed for high-school graduations.

Renaldo Lapuz getting the full USC Marching Band treatment is one of the great moments in tv history.

The right man won. Back to the Utah State Fair with you CLB.

RENALDO! was outstanding, but the best outfit of the night goes to Randy Jackson for pulling off the Captain Kangaroo jacket, dawg.

    I think we as a people crossed that bridge when Kelly Clarkson became acceptable to indie rock fans.


Some did, some didn't, and I'd imagine Cookie will be aimed at the more melancholy 'serious' end of the market than was Kelly, who has a degree of poppiness to much of her stuff.

In any event, even if I slept through the world en masse embracing reality show winners to their bosom of musical credibility, I stand by the point that the title of "American Idol winner" would've been more beneficial to the marketing of the squinty one.

The right man won in any event, though I'd tend to agree with Simon in that he didn't really have a stand-out performance in the final itself.

Didn't Kelly Clarkson complain to the media that she wasn't allowed to do the music she wanted to do when her second CD didn't do that great ? Or something about the studio not letting her write her own songs for her CD ?

She complained about not being able to write her own songs for her most recent album. Finally the studio relented, and the album didn't do nearly as well as the last one that had other people writing the material.

Creative control is one thing. Writing the songs is another. Frank Sinatra had control, but he let people who were good at writing songs handle that part of the work. Kelly Clarkson is great at interpreting an alt-pop song. She's not as good at writing one.

I am glad Cook won.

But, has nobody mentioned the entertaining train wreck that was Amanda oberndorf (or whatever her name is), you know, skunk hair. How drunk was that chick. She was all bloated and slurring and barely audible.

Should make for a fun tour! hahahaha

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Amanda won't be on the tour. Only the top ten get to go and America voted her out in eleventh.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

If there was a god who loved his creations, she would be on the tour, entertaining us with her hatred for the whole thing on a nightly basis.

Just a few thoughts... - I couldn't help but think, during Toby's presentation, what Michael's reaction would be to much of what he was saying and how he was cowering to Kelly during their "fight.
