I don't know how many of my readers actually watch American Idol, but I never miss an episode thanks to TIVO. Last night we watched the final 7 battle it out with songs written and/or sang by Mariah Carey. They each did a decent job, but David Cooke stole the show!

After he was done singing I looked at my husband and said, "He's a genius." I mean it! To take a song that a woman sang and sang well, and still manage to make it his own in every sense of the word takes some amazing talent. I hope this guy goes all the way to the top.
