Congratulations David !

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Season 7 of American Idol has just been fantastic. A lot of ups and downs for the contestants from audition to finale made enthusiastically me watch this season. We also have our 2 Pinoys Reynaldo Lapuz, who didn't make it through preliminary auditions but did make an impact for his white costume and original song "You Are My Brother". Then there's Ramiele Malubay, another Pinay, who made it to the Top 12.

But topping it all off and my bet from early on was David Cook. I have to admit I was blown away by all his own versions of the popular songs. The two songs that stood out for me were his version of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean".

Congratulations to you David Cook ! I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing you more after American Idol.

Here's David Cook's commercial for the video game "Guitar Hero" doing a scene from the popular movie "Risky Business" which made Tom Cruise a star. I loved this solo performance of Tom in the movie and I equally think that David has made the same impact performance. Hoping David gets to that status as a rocker too.

Rock on David !

Update: For those who want to see how close to the original David Cook practiced his choreography, check out the original scene from "Risky Business" with a very young Tom Cruise.
