David Cook breaks down after the announcement that he's won season seven of American Idol. Way to go, viewers! We think you made the right call.
Added:
Syesha Mercado had an amazing run on American Idol. But it's come to an end. Her elimination gives the country six days to prepare for the ultimate showdown: David Cook versus David Archuleta.
Added:
Jason Castro was eliminated from American Idol with a smile on his face. The dreadlocked singer must have known it was his time to go after he butchered a Bob Marley classic.
Added:
Brooke White sings a Neil Diamond song in this shot. Sadly, it would be one of her last performances ever on American Idol.
Added:
Following weak Neil Diamond renditions, Brooke White was sent home. This American Idol finalist could still have a bright folk singing career ahead of her, though.
Added:
Here's a picture of Carly Smithson singing "Jesus Chris Superstar." It would be her final performance on American Idol.
Added:
Kristy Lee Cook says goodbye on American Idol. Impressively, the singer lasted all the way until the final seven on season seven.
Added:
David Cook is seen here singing his version of "Always Be My Baby." In our view, it was the best American Idol performance of season seven.
Added:
Michael Johns waves farewell to the audience. We can't believe we won't be seeing the Aussie sensation on American Idol anymore after his shocking elimination.
Added:
In an American Idol shocker, Michael Johns was voted off the show before Syesha Mercado and Kristy Lee Cook. We were sure he'd reach the final four.
Added:
We actually liked Michael Johns' version of "Dream On." But Simon Cowell did make a good point in saying he was trying to be a Steven Tyler impersonator.
Added:
Syesha Mercado tried to sing another classic song with "I Believe" by Fantasia. This performance came on the heels of "I Will Always Love You." Tough shoes on each occasion for Syesha to fill.
