Former 'American Idol' contestant Phil Stacey is an avid viewer of the show this season, and he's already placing bets on David Cook to win.

"This doesn't mean that I don't like the other contestants, mind you. I would actually buy a CD from any of the remaining finalists, as they are all unbelievably talented and are great artists in their own right," Stacey writes on his USA Today blog. "I have just felt like Cook's performances have continually stood out as far as energy is concerned and the presentation by the lighting crew has always been beneficial to him. He looks like a rock star up there."

So far, Cook is still alive in the competition. Stacey, who made it to the top seven on 'Idol' last year, releases his self-titled debut CD on April 29.
