Yah, that was kinda wierd. Maybe she needed her 1 minute of fame. Isn't david cooks brother sick? Cancer? My daughter was telling me this, but I had never heard it before.
Yes, it is true about the cancer. From what I have read, it is terminal. It is that brother's initial which appear on Cook's guitar. He is too "fragile" to travel commerical and requires the assistance of a medic. In April for Mariah Carey night, his brother was able to attend. The Board of Directors at Clarian Health in Indianapolis paid for the medic, nurse and Leer jet transportation while a local Terre Haute radio station paid for the hotel stay.
Adam Cook, 36, is currently being treated for his second diagnosis of brain cancer, which has spread to his spine, according to Indian's Tribune Star newspaper.
He will travel from Terre Haute, Ind., to Los Angeles to watch David compete in the nationally televised singing competition.
"Extra" reports Adam and his wife, Kendra, flew to L.A. Monday morning on a chartered medical jet, accompanied by a nurse.
Throughout the season, the letters “AC” have appeared on David's guitar as a tribute to his brother."
I don't know who paid for last night's visit.

New faith in Americian Idol is an excellent point. I have a lot of respect for Simon Cowell and what he has accomplished and he looked so happy after the announcement I can only think he was adding up the $$$ HE had just bagged in his mind. Thus knew it was a good choice.
I bet you $5 that BMG WILL sign "Archie" as well anyway. Unless, of course Archie's dad finds a better offer. Maybe he has the experience to produce and manufacturer a CD himself and then get a distrubution deal with Wal-Mart. Heh, if the Eagles can do it, why not Archie's Dad? <<tongue in cheek laughing myself silly>>
Did you know that Cowell is quite a generous man? His favorite charities are children's and animal rescue causes. He is a big supporter at "home" of the RSCPA.
