WOW! I didn't really think it would happen. I thought for sure that Archuleta had it in the bag. I was shocked when Ryan announced David Cook as the winner last night. I have loved David Cook from the very beginning so I was thrilled when he won. I just hope that he can make an album that is true to the artist that he is. I've heard the AI contract isn't all that great and is very restrictive so I hope he can rise above that. I can't wait to hear what he puts out.
I love the whole finale last night. The cheesy, silly group numbers were great. I loved seeing Carly and Michael again. They are both so super talented. I hope that they got enough exposure out of their time on AI to get a recording contract. This honestly was one of the most talented group they've ever had.
I'm sad to see it end but at the same time I'm glad that I won't have to tied to the TV two nights a week anymore. It's such a big time commitment. Now I'm free, at least until next January :-)
