Dear Secret Law of the Universe,
This request is for my dear mother.
Please let David Cook be the American Idol Winner. It would make really make her day.
Remember when Ruben Studdard won? My mom was rooting for Clay Aiken. What resulted from that Aiken non-win was an over-compensating need to support Clay in whatever form he takes — CDs, DVDs, posters, magazine clippings, books, you name it, she’s got it. It’s been 5 years but she’d still say “Clay should have won!” each time Ruben is on.
Don’t get me wrong, she loooved David Archuleta from the start and had wished for a Double David finale but while she says she doesn’t mind the result going either way, she made me listen to David C’s performance on Youtube three times after the show ended because she insisted that “Simon heard it all wrong”.
So please, for my her sake, let it be David Cook for American Idol this year. :)
