oh and one more thing. i was telling my sil while she has been over here for an american idol0-athon, how i really think america totally got it right this time with the top two. they are both really talented and seem to be super genuine and kind and humble. at least it seems to me. they both were so gracious. i loved david cooks comment on about how at this point, the bottom two, it is no longer a competition they are both happy for each other. i loved that. and i was telling michelle perhaps we should look into doing our presidential races like this. the government gets it down to 24, 12 repubs and 12 demos and we hear them speak and do little bits and get to vote each week. at the end of it all there would be about the same amount of voters, 97.5 million and we would have a president we felt like we knew, heck he might even sing well...

i cannot believe american idol is over, although i remember back in january thinking, this this is going to go on to the end of may!
i have mixed emotions about the results. to tell you the truth, i was completely liked both davids. from the beginning i thought david a. was such a sweet kid with an amazing voice. david c. certainly grew on me, probably billy jean week. he really is good.
i really thought without a doubt that david a. would win. i thought for sure! when they read david cooks name i seriously thought he said the wrong name by accident.
i wanted david a. to win mostly because he is younger and his style music will be harder to market at this moment than david cooks. i thought david cook either way would be fine and being older i thought he would take it better. for both of their careers i felt it would be better for david a to win. he could ride the american idol train and sell millions to all those teeny boppers and david cook would probably do better on his own than be buckled down to the american idol train...kwim?
anyway, another american idol season done and over with. it was a long, really good season i think. here's to next season, now i am getting ready for so you think you can dance. this is the only time during the year i can appreciate my 52 in flat screen. the only other times it is truly appreciated in the house is during yo gabba gabba, conference and an occasional byu game oh and oprah when i have time. so thank you nigel, for allowing me to get some use out of my free tv.
