Did David Cook Really Want To Win American Idol?

David Cook Reacts To Winning American IdolEven though the American Idol judges called the competition for David Archuleta during the finale performance show, it was David Cook who came out on top on American Idol 7. However, some fans on the American Idol message boards are already speculating that David Cook didn’t really want to win American Idol.

After Ryan Seacrest announced that David Cook was the winner of American Idol 2008, David Cook closed his eyes and leaned his head back. Some viewers took David Cook’s expression to look like he was thinking, “Oh no, I actually won this thing.” As David Cook hugged fellow finalist David Archuleta, his face showed no excitement over winning the competition. Was David Cook just showing respect for David Archuleta’s feelings or was he not happy about winning?

As Ryan Seacrest continued to talk, David Cook covered his face with his hands and wiped away tears. While most fans have interpreted those tears as tears of overwhelming joy, there are some fans who think they were tears of disappointment over winning. When David Cook’s brother joined him on stage, David Cook said, “This is all your fault. This is his fault.” Was David Cook joking or was he really blaming his brother for getting him involved in the show’s auditions?

In the past, it has often been suggested by fans that sometimes it’s better not to win American Idol, because the winners are thought to have less say in the type of CD that they initially put out. The example of Chris Daughtry’s success is often used to highlight the advantages of not winning American Idol. However, Carrie Underwood’s success can just as easily be pointed to as proof that winning American Idol is not a curse.

    I find this article to be very strange. When he leans his head back it’s an expression of “oh my God, I can’t believe this thing is finally over”, not “oh my God, I actually won the thing.” How would he know at that point whether or not he won or didn’t win…and if someone did let him know the results in advance, then there would be no reason to suddenly tilt his head back in surprise thinking “oh my God I won”, because he would already know that. And goodness, the theory that he would cry because he won, is even more absurd. The most successful American Idols are Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood who both won the competition. Daughtry didn’t win and has had success only because he is good…he is not having success because he lost. Zeeesh. Those were tears of joy, and his “this is your fault” to his brother was giving his brother credit for his success…he’s not angry with him. Oh my.
