I'm not an "Idol" fan but this guy,IMO rocked this song! I know it's Cornell's arrangement but just sounded great to me.

What do you think?

David Cook is incredible. To me, he is not even in the competition, he is completely a professional musician right now. I also REALLY love Carley for some reason, she is really pretty too. And Michael Johns is my 3rd favorite, his cover of "We are the Champions" was incredible. He also did really well with "Bohemian Rhapsody" in Hollywood week. I think he does really good with Queen songs.

Yea, I think he'll be signed regardless of AI outcome.

+1 I really don't care for the song to much, at least Michael's version, but the way he did it was just great. He is a true musician in my opinion.


--------------------
"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

+1 on that! He definitely stands out form the rest of the gang.

I also like Michael Johns. He is so cool on stage. He looks comfortable when he's on stage. Almost like he belongs there.

+1 Trond. Thats one of the reasons I don't watch it that often. Chris Daughtry should have won as well.

No way better than Chris Cornell. That has offended me greatly. It is a good version but the Cornell one makes my spine tingle.
