I am not really a diehard fan of American Idol... But this year i was able to watch the start of the series ... from its auditions... I was happy that a Filipina - Ramielle Malubay was chosen as one of the Top 24 idols... After Jasmine Trias... its was Ramielle on Season 7... (proudly pinoy... though they didn't bag the title... still they we're able to get on the limelight..making all Filos proud)...
Anyway, David Cook caught my attention when he sang his own version of Always be my baby by Mariah Carey. I was stunned! And he became my bet to win the title... Last night i watched the finals... i didn't really like what Simon Cowell said about his performance... but i was hopeful that he'll still be the next idol. In fairness to David Archuleta he was also good... he was able to hit the high notes smoothly... Galing din! But of course it's a competition... and there will always be one winner... And that was David Cook! Yahoo! he's my bet.
My fave D.C.'s song - versions were... (aside from Always be my baby of course):
I Don't wanna miss a thing
Dare you to Move
Still haven't found what i am looking for
The World I know
