David Cook Not Archuleta Is The New American Idol

David Cook
In a shocking twist, David Cook became the newest American Idol.

The fans who vote for Idol saw it differently however, and the vote tally swung in Cook’s favour, possibly because of his maturity and old-soul rocker vibe. Some reviewers also suspected a backlash among voters against the judges’ comments, which seemed to unfairly favour Archuleta.

A record 97 million votes were cast overall, 23 million more than American Idol’s previous high. In the end, Cook won by a relatively wide margin, 56% to 44%, or 12 million votes.
