American Idol. Seven finalists left. Mariah Carey night. Absolutely no reason to review any of their attempts to repeat her blockbusting, five octave, range. Only David Cook came through the fire to perform an amazing 4 star rendition (that sounded nothing whatsoever like Mariah). Thank you DC for allowing me to actually love an MC song for the first time ever. DCXMCsong=JCrating times 10 to the 23rd power. If only (I know...I'm sick of saying it as much as you're sick of hearing it) I had put money on the David ten weeks ago in Vegas when the odds were so good. But that would have required that a) I knew how to contact a Vegas bookie to place a bet and b) that I had any money to place.
Any guy, who can take a Mariah Carey song, and make me not fall asleep on the couch while listening to it, is an amazing talent. He will go as far as he wants to, without limitations, no matter how the AI fans vote. Check out the video and see for yourself.
