IDOL KING COOK thumbnail

“This is all your fault,” a teary David Cook said, referring to his cancer stricken brother after he was crowned American Idol.

David had tagged to the Idol auditions with his brother to lend moral support and ultimately triumphed over competitor David Archuleta.

A record 98 million votes were tallied by phone and text after Archuleta was nearly crowned the night prior.

Oddmakers and cognoscenti knew Cook would win.

And he was the hands-down winner in The ENQUIRER informal online poll easily besting his rival 2:1.
