Last night, to what seemed like very little fanfare, David Cook won American Idol beating out David Archuleta and those other contestants. Good news for the producers who, according to MSNBC, were hoping Cook would win because he’s more “manageable.” Allegedly, David Archuleta’s dad is another Joe Simpson (read: overbearing, horny know-it-all).
19 Entertainment produces “American Idol,” signs the winners to management contracts and handles the recording agreements made within the Sony/BMG record label.
“David Archuleta comes to the table with his own plans and agenda. His father is another shade of Joe Simpson, and it can only spell disaster,” the source said.
Congratulations David Cook. You won a tv show whose ratings have been slipping for the past few years and you did it with possibly stolen performances. Welcome to obscurity in 3… 2… 1.
