I hope David Cook doesn't win

Here are my two cents about who will win American Idol. I made this call weeks ago (in my head), and I didn't really need to watch tonight to have it all figured out.

However, if end up being wrong, you never heard it from me.

David Cook will not win.
David Archuletta will win.

Here is why. And keep in mind, I might be a little bit in love with David Cook.

David Cook does not need Idol. He'll be just fine on his own. In fact, he would likely do better on his own, without Idol influencing his first CD post-show.

I'd even go so far as to say that he already knows this and he possibly intentionally did not bring his A-game tonight to give Archuletta the top spot. Don't get me wrong, he played a good show tonight. But, we've seen him rock my socks off before and tonight wasn't it.

Archuletta, however, while cherubically cute and definitely able to sing, he'll need all the help Idol can give him.

Therefore, I hope David Cook doesn't win. Because by him NOT winning, both David's have a better shot at being successful.

You heard it here first. Or never at all.
