A couple of days ago, American Idol Season 7 Runner-Up, David Archuleta, surprised American Idol Season 7 winner, David Cook, with an impromptu visit during the latter’s concert in Sandy, Utah.
David Archuleta performed his hit, “Crush”, accompanied by background vocals supplied by David Cook. How perfect is this? And how exciting for the fans.
In my humble opinion, American Idol has slowly lost its way since Season 7, spending money shamelessly on judges and production when, in the end, all the fans want are excellent singers with genuine personalities and respect for the art.
This video should be a poster child for what American Idol can achieve when careful thought and expertise are invested in the selection of the singers.
Have a listen. It doesn't get better than this. The affection shared between these two Davids is wonderful to behold.
Were you at the concert? If so, please share your thoughts. And, for everyone else out there, let the fan jam begin in the comments section.
