So AI Season 11, or is it 12….has been running its….Y A A W N….boring course and drawing at last to a close between Candice and Kree. I thought Angie might have gone through…but then I never seem to back the winner 😉 😦 I don’t care how the Finals Results turn out, awesome as the 2 final contestants may be to their fans. Are we even still watching the Show?
To me – for reasons comprehensible only to my fellow-archies – AI ended with Season 7. Moreover, ever since Simon left, the judges became the contestants and had nothing to say that is of interest or of entertainment … and the contestants became nonentities to me. Did I hear that all the judges will be changed for next year’s season, and that one of them might be the Foetus?! … 😯 … I take my hat off to the producers for thinking up all kinds of outlandish ideas to boost the Show’s ratings. I know I won’t be tuning in anymore … unless of course if David is invited to perform in them.
Out of curiosity, I peeked into the current Show intermittently at the Top 4. To my surprise, they were pretty good, but I felt no connection with any of them. Who do you think has the most likeability and will claim the title this Season? – The Man For All Seasons – David Archuleta? 😉 😀
It is not easy to talk about Season 7 without talking about the David vs David showdown. Who can forget about the Battle of the David’s when the rivalry between them was so phenomenal and unique (not to mention the rivalry between their respective fans!) – that it has set such a high bar in singing competitions rivalries; the buzz created and fans’ anxieties of which never again repeated?
Much as I respect Cook as a good musician (I like his AI-given bristles! But I love David’s voice waaay beyond this little detail and I can overlook the fact that he hasn’t any!). My heart and admiration, together with all the ole-gal-fangirling I allow myself to do, will always remain with our David – the David who should have won.
Since it is not possible to overturn those DANG results of Season 7 which sent multiple shockwaves throughout the world, and still is often talked about, I’m taking the high road to have some fun with these random pics at the expense of the lovely Cook and the even lovelier Archie – a belated tribute to their “brotherly-like” rivalry – albeit a little cheeky – to one of the most celebrated, memorable and endearing happenings in AI history.
The ever-green Archu-Cook “inside story”
No..no..Archie, let ME tell them our story..you’ll ramble on and still get nowhere
(editor: True, Cook. But we’re used to waiting for him. What do you think we’ve been doing all this time?)
Cookie: Call you back…this kid is crushing me to death!
(editor: Yeah he should have!)
Archie: Maybe I should have crushed him there and then!
(editor: A bit late, ain’t it?!)
Cookie: I must look cool!
Archie: I must save the world!
(editor: The world doesn’t want to be saved, Archie. It ‘s desperate to be cool! )
Cookie: I think Archie will win – he is so good.
Archie: I don’t really wanna win – it’s too embarrassing
(editor: David…you weirdo!)
Archie: Don’t worry, Cook. I told you already I’ve been praying for you to win
Cookie: Thanks Arch! Think your prayer will work?
(editor: Trust the Archulator, Cook!)
Onward march, Arch! My victory is nigh!
(editor: If the whole world had voted, Archie would have won, no?)
Who has more bristles? Cookie wins!
(editor: He definitely wins by a bristly mile!)
Ryan: Here are your prizes
The winner will claim the Title
The runner-up will be shipped off to S. America for disturbing the peace
(editor: and for messing up our lives too)
Cookie: I’ll make it up to you Arch!
..introduce you some girls..teach you how to quickly grow some instant bristles…
(editor: Bribery after the fact?)
Cookie: Ok..Ok…Archie..1 kick is enough!
(editor: GO Archie!)
Both: Such a relief when it’s all over!
(editor: NO REMATCH?!)
A YEAR LATER
Both: Why is he still stalking me?
(editor: Who is stalking who?)
Hey Archie! Hey Cook!
Nice to see you, Arch! Nice to see you too!
Had your first kiss yet?
(editor: Don’t tell, David! Let it remain a secret!)
You two are sure lookin’ good!
(editor: but methinks our David has more seduction going on in his eyes!)
🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Us: That’s the spirit, Cook!
(editor: Now I know where my Archie tee went!)
AI Finals will never be the same again!
(editor: Still don’t get it. Archie should have won)
😦 😯 😦 😯 😦
Cookie: ARCHIEEE! WHERE ARE YOU!!
I MISS YOUUU!!!
