Well, that was a surprise, wasn't it? I mean I had predicted in this space that David Cook would prevail but I assumed the voting margin would be far closer. 12 million votes? That's a landslide.
And well deserved, judging by the contrasting commercials the two Davids did for Guitar Hero last night. I just don't think little David Archuleta is equipped to handle the star-making machinery.
I found the rest of the finale pretty bizarre and produced with less imagination and energy than previous Idol sendoffs.
Maybe even the producers were wornout after this tedious season.
