So what happened on AI? No, I know the outcome: I watched it. I want to know why you all think everything came out the way it did.
Did everyone finally decide that David Archuleta only sings one type of song well (syrupy ballads) and they got tired of that?
AI’s demograpics reveal that its audience is actually slightly older now than in the past. Were the viewers determined not to have Teen Idol this time around and go for a more mature talent?
How much did Jeff Archuleta’s stage-parent antics sabotage his son’s chances?
Any other angles you want to bring in? Why do you think Cook won?
(BTW I’m glad Cook won. We were pulling for him last night.)
