In the end though, it was clear and apparent that America chose the rocker, David Cook, over the pretty-boy David Archuleta as their true Idol.

Ryan Seacrest stated that the voting was not even close in terms of who was the American Idol, and he was not lying.

The total number of votes came in at near 100 million votes, and it was announced that Cook won the voting by 12 million votes.

That would place Cook at around 55 million votes, and Archuleta at around 43 million votes when it was all said and done.

America disregarded what was said by the judges, as Simon himself stated that Archuleta won all three rounds of singing on Tuesday night.

The knockout that Simon proclaimed did not take place though, as it was Cook who took the crown.

Simon even went as far as to apologize to Cook before the winner was announced, stating he was on the verge of being “disrespectful” in the final show of performances.

It became clear at the end that Cook and his rocker style proved far more appealing to the American people compared to the 17-year old pretty-boy, David Archuleta.
