David Cook vs. Michael Johns

United States
April 8, 2008 10:17pm CST
I have a feeling that a lot of people compare Michael Johns and David Cook, because I do it a little too. They seem very similar to me in their singing techniques. My question is, who is the real favorite; of you, of the judges, or everyone else? Who do you think will go home first? I am a much bigger fan of Michael Johns. I think David Cook sounds good sometimes, and sometimes I'm not a fan. But I always love Michael! He is a great singer and I'm rooting for him to out last David Cook.

do i have to pick???Ok I will stop the whinning...I like them both for the talent they bring on stage and of course they both are HOTTTTTT.I am a woman with eyes and have to say they look good...I like Micheal Johns to a degree more because tonight David Cook just seemed to act like he was IT.I think it is starting to go to his head just a little bit because he has had a few good weeks.I am just keeping my fingers crossed fro them both at this point and hope Christy Lee Cook goes home first!lol

Yeah, for quite a while now I have felt that David Cook thinks that he is the one to beat. I think David Cook sees himself as the best, and that really makes me dislike him more. Michael Johns seems a lot more humble then him (even though he doesn't show it all the time). Yes they are both hot! lol. When i said which one fo you think will go first, I didn't technically mean I thought one of them would go next! =P I defeniatly think there are a couple of people that would go before either of them, like you said, Christy Lee Cook. She's talented, but I just don't think she is a favorite of many people.

I think Michael Johns will go home first. They are both excellent singers and both have come along way since the beginning of the season, but I would have to say I liked David Cook from the beginning and he gets better and better every week I think he has a shot at winning this year...

When it comes down to talent....I think they both are going to be hard to beat. But I think talent wise that David Cook has more of the artistic talent between the two....I think it is going to be interesting when it gets down a few more people

I'm getting lots od back and forth opinions! =P Some people say Michael Johns and others say David Cook! I guess it's going to be a real horse race between the two! lol. I personally hope that Michael John lasts longer. I'm actually hope he, Brooke, and David Archuletta are the last 3 standing.

hmm... i think because these two ..are... 'rockers'... they seem very 'similar'... but.. i still prefer David Cook - i find him to be 'the more creative' one.. more talented, and willing to take risks.. Michael John is a great singer.. wonderful voice.. and handsome.. .. but.... (you already know my pick... )

lol!!!! No bashful.ashamed looking faces!!! I want different opinions for my discussions!! =D Thank you. There is no doubt David Cook has a great voice, and he does change songs up a bit. But the thing is sometimes I don't enjoy him much. But I always love Michael Johns. I think he sings songs brilliantly every week! :) *FYI: Everytime I type David Cook, I get so close to actually typing Dane Cook lol. You know the comedian?*

Well, I have a certain vocal tone that I love...and my daughter would always ask me "do you like his voice"? And I would be like "well...it's close..." or sometimes "um...no?!?" lol But, when Michael Johns auditioned I went upstairs to where she was watching in another room and said- "now THAT'S my kind of voice!" lol His song from last week still gives me chills.... I'll be buying that one. David Cook has an awesome voice, too, but I thought tonight was a little weird. I don't know that I think he's gotten cocky, but something was off with him tonight...of course I hadn't heard nor did I like that song, so that was probably some of it. Anyway, since you are forcing me to choose...lol...Michael Johns. :) can't speak for anyone else, though I have seen lots of chatter about David Cook it seems.

lol! I loved Michael Johns audition too. But what really made me fall in love with him was Hollywood week, when he sang Bohemian Rhapsody. That was an amazing performance! And I liked him forever after that! =) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUfE993iucg Yeah I didn't like David Cooks performance at all last night either...it was kind of weird for me.

I love David Cook. I love his arrangement of the songs. I really love his own version of always be my baby. Here in the Philippines, you can always hear be my baby everywhere, it had also been on the top of the list of every radio station. During american idol days i look forward for him. I'm glad he won the competition.

I is a shame Micheal got voted off tonight. I am quite upset about that. I thought he did much better then David Cook did as well as the 2 girls that got higher then he did.

It's hard to say. David Cook is my favorite, Michael Johns is catching up though. I have liked all of David Cook's performances except the very last one, where the chior was singing louder than him. Michael Johns is a good looking guy though so that could really help him. As for who will go home first, if David Cook gets back up to his normal standards I see him in the finale, buy Michael Johns has a good shot at being there to. I am going to predict however that he lands in 3rd or 4th. This year is really wild though a lot of talented people and a lot of different styles, it will come down to what style America likes best.

I think the judges like them both. For me they are just comparing the two of them because of the power of their voices but these two men have different taste when it comes to music. If you ask me i like Michael Johns better. Since they were in top 24 my bet are David, Carly and Michael Johns, thank God that these three survive and still fighting. When it comes to Michael John, he's performance has a lot of means for him. I can feel it whenever he sings and i can see the sadness in his eyes whenever the judges have bad comments because for him his every performance is part of his life.

I feel that Michael Johns is a much better performer than David Cook. I think David seems conceited and thinks that he is the top person on Idol. I feel that David Archuletta is more talented than he is and I think he will go home before Archuletta will. I like Christie Lee Cook and would like to see her stay. It seems as though she is not a fan favorite as she is always in the bottom three. I think that she is going to be safe this week as she done well last night. I believe based on performances last night it could be Broke White or Carly Smithson going home tomorrow night.

It sounds like they are similar but I don't think they are. Michael is more soul/rock as compared to David Cook who is more hard rock. I like Michael's singing style but this weeks song was not a good one and I agreed with Simon on his remarks. As for David Cook, I really like his voice and his charisma. I think he will be in the top two with David A.

I think both are going to have to do something to stand out more. They are too much alike. One of them is going to have to really wow the audience to get to stay.
