The lovely MunkFOD posted this vid at the end of the last thread, along with this comment: “OH my gosh you guys! You have to see this! highlights of David Archuleta in the group performances from idol! Great to see his progress thru idol….geez ! He is soooo goood!
And I was so blown away, I had to give it its very own post. I had been searching for that vid for ages! “Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies” *dies*
Not only does it show David’s progress through Idol, but it also showcases how versatile he is (I know, not news, lol) … he covers all those styles of songs while still retaining his “Davidness” in each one… love the ArchuGrowl in there too!
And beyond the amazing vocals … can we talk about the dance steps??? Yes, I know they’re adorkable and awkward… but he did them anyway! That’s one of the things I love most about this crazy Costco-kid, he puts himself out there and tries no matter how far outside his comfort zone he steps… no, leaps.
When I forced myself to watch A.I. last year when David was on, I was shocked that they now lip-synch all those numbers … probably very few of the contestants could handle what he did so masterfully. *replays*
How about you guys? Did this vid remind you of any favourite David A.I. moments? Will you watch A.I.10? Or would you rather listen to Simon sing Imagine?
