I am sure it is now a David Cook- David Archuleta top 2 finalist. Though I feel that David Cook should win, it will be David Archuleta who will be the winner. He has such a huge fan base.
David A.’s fan base is nothing if not loyal. And passionate. And vocal. He’s just 17, they say. He’s a beacon of light in the dark, cynical, negative world that is the recording industry today, they say. He’s cheerful and he smiles, they say. He’s humble. He’s shy. He works hard, his fans insist — though Lennon/McCartney fans may take issue with that last one. There was that night he booted the lyrics to We Can Work It Out, remember — but, of course, that only counts now for Idol fans with long memories. (He was nervous, he later admitted.)
No, make no mistake. This is David A.’s Idol to lose. And anyone who knows anything about the culture today knows that, when it comes to pop-music/movies/or-TV, what the tweeners want, the tweeners get.
We live in the world, kids, and the world is thus.
