Top 9: David Cook comes home

Of course, we don't find out right away what Ryan's shenanigans are all about.

David Cook

First, David Cook sings his new single, "Come Back to Me." He's in good form tonight except for the bizarre man brooch he is wearing. Must be a rocker thing.

I always did think America got it right with him, and it's good to have him back so early in the season.

His album cover is muy caliente and how nice that they presented him with the platinum album for his debut on stage. Congrats!

    I would like to read a bit more on this site soon. By the way, pretty nice design you have here, but how about changing it once in a few months?

    David did great! Seemed a bit off on a couple of notes. Just a heads up to those of you saying the judges should have stood. DavidCookOfficial members were there at this taping...yes taping was two weeks ago. Randy, Paula, Simon, and Kara did NOT stay to watch. So that's why they didn't stand. They were doubles!

    Hey Brad:

    You are correct!!! David's performance was pre-recorded. Read on either Yahoo or EW that it was as he had to cancel some concert's because of a family matter

    He is Hot, hot hot! His album is #1 in my car cd player and gets more play time than all the others.
    Love that he still makes faces at the camera – and that his mom was there supporting him. LOVED it, love the song. 🙂

    It was great to see David last night, he makes this old grandma's heart sing! I bought his first album from itunes but it was a little too much "rock" for my taste, I really prefer the balladeer David.....but that has a lot to do with age difference and I am happy for him that it went platinum in such a short time. I wish him continued success and will buy his albums as they come out.

    David Archuletta should of won? Are you kidding Jerry? I guess than it's good that Ruben, Fantasia & Taylor won previously. That's the same way Archie wouldv'e went. Low initial CD sales = trying to find their audience and/or dropped from Ent 19 label.

    David Cook is waayyyy better & very humble. A class act !!!

    I love that David Cook has some of his former band mates in his new band. I love them. I am dissappointed in albumn. I'm sure when he gets out from under American Idol and does his OWN music, it will ROCK. Too bad that his tour is mostly at Universityies and you can't get a ticket unless you are a student.
    I'm from Tulsa and saw David when he played with MWK. I'm sad that when they come to Tulsa tickets were only availiable to students.
    I do think he ROCKS and can't wait for his OWN music!!!!!

    The performance was taped as you'd have noticed that neither Alexis Grace nor Jason Castro were in their spots behind the judges table nor do they ever show a close up of the judges....could've been stand-ins, they were wearing different clothes that's for sure.

    In general(few exceptions)the AMERICAN IDOL winners are not the best,for sure David Cook was not,he's just mediocre at best
    perhaps(only this year)we could have the best winner ever:Adam Lambert

    David Cook couldn't sing last night or ever before. David Archuletta should have been American Idol for 2008.
    David C. get some good songs/lycrics or give it up.
    The whole Amer. Idol is fixed and you can see right through it more and more.

    David Cook IS American Idol! I never get tired of watching him. Megan and Scott should not have been allowed to share the stage with this fantastic performer!
    And yeah, his Mom was glittered up like Paula Abdul! Way to go, David! We still love you!!! (even more so after seeing this year's competition)

    I love David. He has tremendous talent. I do, though, think that the judges should have given him more than clapping while sitting, Its always standing O for any guests coming to the stage. Pretty sad for someone that went platnim in 3 months. Boo Paula that you were heartless.

    So good to see David again. I just hope Come Back to Me doesn't in any way relate to Kim Caldwell, with whom he parted company before Christmas, thank God.

    Anyone notice the serious bling on David Cook's mom? Looks like David has been very good to Mom...as he should be. Seems like they have a great Mother/son relationship.

    Andrew also, because he was the one that originally wanted to try out for Idol and David went with him. David talked about it when he was competing on Idol. Adam is his older brother who has been ill for a long time.

    David is always fantastic and he was great tonight. So glad that they gave him the platinum record on Idol. His new video is beautifully done. See him live, if you can. His voice is incredible live.

    If Megan doesn't go home tonight I'm going to stop watching this show. She should have been the first to go!

    He said that he's touring until his hair falls out. Which may be pretty soon for him. At least I'm not the only one with a receeding hairline.

    Be like Moby: rock that cue ball head when you get it!
