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 margin of victory would be closer. 12 million votes? That's a landslide.

But the victory for Cook was well-deserved. At least if you judge them by last night's contrasting commercials for Guitar Hero. I just think the star-making machinery would break little David Archuleta.

Otherwise I thought the finale was a bizarre night, produced with far less imagination and energy than Idol wrapups usually provide. Maybe even the producers were worn out by this tedious season and just wanted to see it end. I second that emotion.

But congratulations to David Cook. We who are to rock, salute you.

Seacrest...out!
