American Idol' stars rock Wolstein Center
The Plain Dealer - cleveland.com - Cleveland,OH,USA - After a long, hard-fought campaign, the victorious candidate stood onstage Thursday night in a crowded arena to stake his claim to the most powerful job in the free world. Well, more or less.

I'm talking, of course, about David Cook, our latest "American Idol."

Joining the 25-year-old singer from Blue Springs, Mo., for the convention -- er, concert -- at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center were nine other top finalists from the seventh season of the smash television series.

David Cook: Glad I Got to Pamper My Brother
MyFox Kansas City - Kansas City,MO,USA - By now, most people know the story of how American Idol David Cook, from Blue Springs, Missouri, ended up trying out for the show. Now, he's happy to be in a position to pay back his brother, Andrew Cook.

David Cook went to Omaha not to audition for American Idol, but instead just to accompany his brother, Andrew for his audition. As most people know by now, David ended up auditioning for American Idol and winning the crown.

Now, Cook has a record deal, a tour, an endorsement deal with Sketchers, and the former bartender from Tulsa now has a little discretionary

America's Accidental Idol
Rolling Stone - USA - Less than a week after winning American Idol, David Cook is sitting in a glitzy restaurant on the south tip of Manhattan's Central Park. The chef, who proudly says he was among the 55 million who phoned in a vote for Cook during Idol's finals, presents the singer with an off-the-menu treat — foie gras on toast — that leaves Cook unnerved. "That looks dangerous," he says. "I'm a little scared." Tossing the bite-size morsel in his mouth, he chews slowly and quickly lunges for his Sprite to drown out the taste. Later, when the chef returns with a delicate

David Cook Bests Miley Cyrus for Billboard Record
MyFox Kansas City - Kansas City, MO, USA - American Idol, and Kansas City's own, David Cook is better than Miley Cyrus. At least, that's according to their Billboard Hot 100 debuts.

According to Billboard.com, Cook's debut of entries into the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Digital Songs sets a record previously held by Hannah Montana herself, or Miley Cyrus.

Cook has 11 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and 14 songs on the Hot Digital Songs lists. His takeover of the charts includes the number three slot for "The Time of My Life" on the Hot 100 list and the same song takes the number one spot on the downloads

David Cook leads 'American Idol' domination of music charts
Entertainment Weekly - USA - For the moment, it's David Cook's world and we just live — and download — in it. That would be the conclusion to draw, anyway, from this week's digital-songs chart, where American Idol-atry has truly reached critical mass. Cook's TV coronation anthem, "Time of My Life," debuted atop that chart with 236,000 downloads.

But his success hardly stopped there: "Big" David had a total of 14 songs bow on the digital songs chart. His second-biggest single of the week, "Dream Big," bowed at No. 6 with 111,000 sold, and he claimed a third entry in the chart's top 10, selling 98,000

Record Deals, Hit Singles and a Hot Date: Catching up with David Cook
BuddyTV - Seattle, WA, USA - David Cook has been busy.  It's only been one week since the former bartender was crowned the American Idol champion, and he's already gone on a date, conducted thousands of interviews, rehearsed for the American Idol tour and found 17 of his Idol songs on the Top 100 Digital Music charts.  Not bad for someone who was completely anonymous six months ago.  Below, we're going to go through the laundry list of activities that Cook has endured over the past week.  Tomorrow, we'll take a gander at David Archuleta's week but, since he was second place (and, really, second place

The next American Idol will be David - but which one?
Houston Chronicle - United States - It's still unclear what we'll most remember about this year's American Idol. But it's likely not what host Ryan Seacrest repeatedly promised - the most talented singers ever! - during the early weeks of the show.

If anything, quirky details and disasters, more than the music, made this season worth watching: David Hernandez's seedy stripper past; Brooke White's do-overs; Carly Smithson's tattoos; Jason Castro's distant gaze; David Archuleta's stage dad; Danny Noriega's peculiar energy.

So what we're left with on tonight's show isn't exactly a David vs. Goliath battle - despite glaring differences in age, attitude and size.

Instead it's David vs. David.

'American Idol' hits a sour note in season 7
Newsday - Long Island, NY, USA - ' American Idol": Can you think of any two words that spark greater debate - with the exception of " Mets" and "Yankees?" This season, ratings are down (a bit) and passions are high. Is this the most boring season ever, or is this the best? TV editor Andy Edelstein and TV writer Verne Gay square off over the most Important Question on TV (at least for this moment).

I used to be an "American Idol" fan, eagerly looking forward to each week's shows. But now I watch it solely because of professional obligation. And that's no way to watch TV.

Home > News > David Cook in top 11 on 'Idol'
Blue Springs Examiner - MO, USA - David Cook is safe for one more week.

The Blue Springs South High School graduate advanced to the next round of "American Idol" Wednesday after delivering a rocker version of Beatles hit "Eleanor Rigby" Tuesday.

His rendition of the song drew praise from all three judges, including the brutally honest Simon Cowell.

Cowell told a jubilant Cook, his performance was "brilliant."

"If this remains a talent competition rather than a popularity contest, you could win the whole thing," Cowell said to a noticably pleased Cook.

This is the second consecutive week Cowell has praised Cook. Last week, after Cook rocked out to "Hello" by Lionel
