David Wins Idol - A Top Story This Week

David Wins Idol was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (antiMusic) Some guy named David won American Idol tonight. Apparently it was a bit of blow out. It was the older David that won, not the male Hannah Montana wannabe. An astounding 97.5 million votes were cast. (27.5 alone cast by the four 13 year-old girls?) However, those votes have never translated into more than a couple percent in record sales when the winner releases their debut. Recent winners have even been dropped after disappointing sales, but it makes for entertaining TV for millions.

Here are some of the highlights from the Billboard article about the results: Amid deafening applause, David Cook was crowned the seventh "American Idol" tonight (May 21) at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre. The 25-year-old Blue Springs, Mo., native earned 56% of the record 97.5 million votes cast at last night's performance finale, defeating 17-year-old David Archuleta on the Fox TV series.

As the credits rolled, Cook, who was a bartender before auditioning for "Idol," sang "Time of My Life," which won the the show's songwriting competition. He cried as host Ryan Seacrest announced his victory, proclaiming, "I am absolutely at a loss for words right now." - Read more and check out Billboard's interviews with the finalists
