Phillip's first single did OK, at least in its first week. Who knows how he'll do with future singles. Radio is kind of...it seems more open lately, after Adele and with Gotye. I hate that Phillip won, I don't think he's that talented but he still could sell.

As for David Cook- he really hurt this show with his borrowed remixed versions of songs, imho. And I don't think he was the best singer that season. I still listen to Carly Smithson's stuff and hope she'll make a decent album one day. I also enjoyed Brook White a lot, though I don't think she was a strong vocalist. It was actually a pretty good season, thinking back, even though most of the people I liked got eliminated during the Top 24.

I think Cook won on the back of girls and their mothers, and it's been that way pretty much ever since. I just wish their taste was more varied. JMHO of course. Cook wasn't awful, just not the best of that season imho, and I'd question whether he'd have won if voting rules were different.
