I'm not liveblogging the thing, but as for the finale of American Idol: David Cook has just opened the show with a scorching performance of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
And just like that, I think Cook wins. Game, set, match. That Archuleta kid can't come close to anything like what Cook just did.
OK, that's out of my system.
(Oh all right, since they went right into Arculeta's first song as I was typing this, he's doing the only thing he knows how to do: a soulful ballad - "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" - and not terribly convincingly. He's a cross between Clay Aiken and Snoopy. Ick, ick, ick, ick. And of course, Randy Jackson can't possibly criticize this kid. Ye Gods. Now I'm done.)
