Newsweek compared David Cook's stage presence to that of presidential hopeful Barack Obama. After sneaking to the front of the pack on Season 7's American Idol, Cook got better week after week.

When he went to the Omaha cattle call, he was there in support of his brother Andrew, who didn't make the cut.
