David Cook, a rocker from Missouri, was declared the winner of the 2008 American Idol. Having sung songs by Seal, U2, Aerosmith, The Who & Our Lady Peace, Cook got the maximum number of votes in the final to beat his 17 year old competitor David Archuleta. Finally a rocker gets the big one! To be fair, I thought that Cook’s rendition of Billie Jean had sealed the deal for him many days ago. The rest were just formalities. Although I think Bo Bice, Chris Daughtry & Constantine were better than him, its good to see a rocker snag the win. Go Cook!
