David’s been on Idol already this season to perform his new single, “The Last Goodbye,” from his new album, This Loud Morning, roaring into stores on June 28.

    Scotty’s the winner! He doesn’t complain or whin – he sings his heart out everytime he hits that stage, he’s been consistent all season and knows who he is as an artist and he’s a good kid with a strong faith. He’s also a gentleman – he won the toss and could have sang second, but gave that opportunity to Lauren. She should not have taken it, but she did because she’s all about herself. I am Tired of the manipulation for Lauren this season and last night was over the top with the doctor coming on stage, Ryan escorting her when she was singing, going up and hugging her mama – it was over the top drama. Haley or James are better singers and should have been in the finale over her. So, I’m for Scotty all the way. I’m sure both will have incredible careers.

  2. David Cook was-is-always will be -the best part of any Idol show! David Rocks with tons of class!!!
