This Wednesday marked the ending of another season of American Idol and the start of a successful career for the lucky winner. This year it goes to David Cook, who is more than deserving of that title. I was expecting 17 year-old David Archuleta to win with his cult following of tween girls, so I was pleasatly surprised when David C. pulled out on top. In honor of the finale this blog entry is devoted to my favorite Idol contestants and performances of the season!
“Dare You to Move”- Switchfoot
“Always Be My Baby”- Mariah Carey
“I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”- Aerosmith
AND last but not least of course is his performance of “The Time of My Life” at the Idol Finale.
“You’re So Vain”- Carly Simon
“Let It Be”-The Beatles
“Here Comes the Sun”- The Beatles
“Daydream”- The Lovin’ Spoonful
“Hallelujah”- Jeff Buckley
“Travelin’ Thru”- Dolly Parton
“Somewhere Over the Rainbow”- Israel Kamakawiwo
