The last few weeks of American Idol have been very intense. It has left many viewers on the edge of their seats as they wait impatiently to see which of their favorite contestants will be voted off of American Idol for good.
We are finally down to the last two on American Idol and now it is David vs. David but who will win?
Looking back at the last few weeks, I have been impressed by some and hopeful for others. There have been times when I have wanted certain ones to win and have wondered why others have stayed.
Taking a look at the two Davids that are left on American Idol, I could only hope that this last step to the top is voted on performance only and not just the looks of the American Idol contestants.
Let’s take a look at David Archuleta first and then we will move on to David Cook. After seeing both of these talented singers, I will then compare the two to see who should win and who will probably win.
David Archuleta’s singing talent
Archuleta can sing and sing he does. The boy has a great voice but he often sings songs that are similar to all the other ones that he sings. His talent is based off of soft and low key songs. If you are looking for a more up to beat song, you shouldn’t bet on it. I have only seen him sing a couple of songs that weren’t slow.
David Archuleta’s stage presence
The younger generation goes wild when Archuleta takes the stage. His performances have been great but not as great as what I had hoped for. Archuleta comes off as a clumsy person as he has nearly made a cluts out of himself on numerous occasions. Most of the females would probably not recognize his clumsiness since they are too focused on his looks.
David Archuleta’s physical appeal
The boy has appeal and need I say more? He has the looks for someone who would make a great model but we are talking about singing here. I have seen how he looks into the audience and focuses his eyes on one girl at a time to make her scream.
David Archuleta’s record-selling potential
I do believe that Archuleta has record-selling potential even if he does not win American Idol. I would defiantly be looking for him to produce an album within the next few years.
David Archuleta’s career longevity
AmericanIdol is supposed to be all about talent but we know that over the past few years, this has not been the case. If Archuleta gets into the music business his career would probably expand and he would defiantly be in it for a while.
Now to take a look at the other David, David Cook and see what kind of talent this guy has.
David Cook’s singing talent
Cook is known as the rocker on American Idol and this guy can sure rock. His talent has captivated many people in their homes and they are just waiting to see what this talented singer will do next. Cook’s singing talent is great and he has sung many different songs in many different styles. I always look forward to what he will bring to the table on American Idol.
David Cook’s stage presence
Cook’s stage presence on American Idol could be a little bit better. In some of his performances he has shown to be a true star but I do not like it when he is up on the stage dancing. He might be a great singer but he cannot dance at all. People seem to like it better when he does his rocker moves without the constant swaying of the hips.
David Cook’s physical appeal
Just like Archuleta, Cook has sex appeal and the ladies love it. Cook is a very good looking and talented singer who seems to draw the attention of older women. As for the guys; they love him for his rocker style.
David Cook’s record-selling potential
If Cook were to produce a record, it would defiantly sell. He has what it takes to make a great album and even if he does not win American Idol, he will probably still go on to produce records.
David Cook’s career longevity
Cook will be in it for a long time if he wins American Idol or if he is picked up by a record producing company. Cook has the sex appeal and the great voice and people are going to love this.
Comparison of David Archuleta and David Cook
I had been a fan of both of these guys and now I have to make a choice. Over the past few weeks, Cook has risen and grown in popularity while Archuleta seems to be winning over the younger crowd.
The voice comparison
Cook seems to have a better voice than what Archuleta does. Archuleta’s singing seems to stay the same and Cook likes to mix it up. The voices are always the first thing that I compare since it is supposed to be what makes up American Idol. If we were going on voice alone, David Cook would win the American Idol competition.
The stage performance comparison
This would have to be a toss up between Archuleta and Cook. Both of them have about the same level of stage performance.
Comparison of physical appeal
This would all depend on who was watching the television during all of American Idol. Archuleta has the little boy look while Cook has the sexier look. There has been a lot of voting for looks competitions going around on the internet and some say that Archuleta’s looks are better while others say that Cook’s looks would win. I am a true believer that Archuleta has stayed in this competition mainly for his looks.
If both of them produced a record, they would both sell. I wouldn’t be surprised if Archuleta sold most to begin with and then slowed down as time went on. Cook is probably the best person for a high record selling for many years after his singing career takes off.
Career longevity comparison
There are those who make it and those who don’t but I do believe that both of them will. As far as comparing their careers, Cook would win this one. Archuleta is just like any other young star; he is only in the spotlight for now but as time goes on he will probably fade away. Cook is the one that would end up staying in the singing business for a while since both older adults and the young audience seems to like him.
Who should win American Idol?
David Cook is the one with the better voice and the overall better performances. Cook’s choices of songs have been outstanding and they have helped his voice to shine through. But will this happen? Will he be the next American Idol?
Who will win?
If we went on singing alone, David Cook should win this competition but we all know that this may not be the case. I have seen people win American Idol over their looks only and the popularity of the person. American Idol is no longer a singing competition but instead, a popularity competition. So, who is more popular?
So, there you have it. The two Davids going up against each other for the first time and now we will have to wait impatiently to see which one will become the next American Idol.
