I was reading a column somewhere this week that said the same thing, and that it was one of the reasons the show wasn't all that great this year; that the contestants were looking more burned out and exhausted than in previous years.

I know that's a hard truth about a lot of reality shows, but there has to be something the show can do to make it a little easier on the singers.

Just watching it it seemed like something wasn't quite right for a couple of the singers (Carly, Jason, Brooke stand out). I kind of felt that way about LaKisha last year too...all singers who seemed to "fall off" a bit as the season dragged on.

Like not making them take trips to Vegas on the weekends when they could be rehearsing and sleeping? Seriously, that was really unnecessary for them.

Catching up on the top 4 performances via youtube...

What the hell did DaveC do to Baba O Riley? The arrangement was horrid. He repeated "teenage wasteland" over and over for half the song. His vocals are still good though.

Jason wasn't THAT bad, just sloppy. Sheriff was lazy, and he made some mistakes in Mr. Tambourine Man. Whatever. Still not sure why the Whitney Houston ripoff is still here.

Is this still about the whole "he let people think it was his own arrangement" thing?
Cori I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to get back to you on this but I've been seriously racking my brain trying to come up with the perfect way to articulate my full-blooded hatred for David Cook.

One of these days I'm going to come up with a good answer. I promise. I don't want to just come with a shallow, irrational reason for why I despise him. I'm going to try to give some valid arguments for why I think he should be thrown back to the pits of hell from whence he came.

I can tell you it has a lot to do with his voice and how much it bothers me. But his yucky vocal stylings aren't the only reason why I can't stand the guy.

Also, I've said it before but this smiley - - does a pretty good job of describing him in my eyes.

But my full report will be coming soon. Perhaps after I take a nap.

There's nothing to hate about DaveC as an individual. What he represents is sometimes a bit annoying though...that is, nu/alt metal, but I can't hold that against him. Dude is an awesome singer. Plus, listen to his Daytripper and All Right Now covers and tell me he isn't a genuine rock star. This guy knows what he's doing and has talent.

Final 3 Song Spoilers... (actually only one so far)

David Cook reveals his song choices this morning:

His Choice - “The World I Know” by Collective Soul
Simon Cowell Choses for Him - “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack
The third song is picked by the producers.


I wonder if he'll change the arrangement of the first...
I wonder how he will do the second one I think that could be quite interesting!

Yes he will. I'm hoping he puts out a kick-ass album on an indie label.

Interesting song spoilers. Well, the judge's choice for Cook is, anyway. Great song, but straaaaange choice. It'll either be great or a trainwreck. If Syesha kills her song choice, she might stand a chance of knocking Archie out of the finale. More likely she'll just go sharp on the high notes (something I wish the judges would call her out on more often.)

And it seems Archie's father has been banned from the backstage area AND the song rehearsals. The plot thickens...
