Wow, almost 400 peeps took the poll, thanks, guys! Here are the top two results:
With “fan of his hawtness” coming in 6th. 🙂
And apparently I’m the kind of fan who takes screen caps like these (grabbed just as I saw on Twitter that Idol inadvertently flashed David’s face onscreen when showing S7 highlights… how many hours must they have spent trying to Photoshop him out? 🙂 ).
Yes, THAT Rebecca Black of Friday Song fame (or infamy, depending on how you look at it 🙂 )… who happens to have over a million followers.
You are still loved, David!
These tweets got me wondering … will Idol even exist when David gets back? I haven’t watched since S7 so I won’t miss it, but I wonder how David will feel if it vanishes off the face of the earth. Sad? Relieved?
At least they won’t have him to kick around anymore. I find it interesting that David was on Star Search at age 12 and by the time he appeared on Idol five years later, Star Search was no more. And now, five years after S7, Idol may soon disappear, and once again David will be ready to embark on a fresh new phase of his life and career. Hmmm. Sorry, just typing out loud here, lol.
And WHY have we NEVER seen David’s performance of “Crazy” on Idol???… from everything else we’ve since learned about that manipulative show, I now don’t believe for a second that it had anything to do with acquiring rights for the song. It must’ve been so incredibly brilliant and moving that the producers feared no one else would stand a chance if they aired it. Whatever the reasons, someone somewhere must have that clip and WE NEED TO SEE IT!
Also, here’s the almost vlog we got yesterday… love everything from the grandpa cardigan to his impeccable harmonies to the… the… the… suitcases *sobs*
Remember Rickey’s blog? The place where some of us gathered during AI Season 7 and received early training for proper Archuleta spazzing and general goofiness? Rickey still posts occasional blurbs about our David, and usually does it with remarkable hyperbole. He describes the above video like this:
“Here’s ‘Roller Coaster’ by Vanessa Deliz featuring her cousin American Idol international superstar and Adult Contemporary prince Elder David Archuleta”
I can’t find anything to disagree with there. 🙂
Nice! But not sure how I feel about “Adult Contemporary prince” LOL… I’d leave it as “international superstar prince” heheh
It is cool Rickey still posts about D. 🙂 🙂 🙂
🙂 Miss the International superstar Prince!! 🙂
How is it that the little clip of D jamming with his cuz gets me right in the heart??? wah………….
I really think idol is toast…. I have not watched since 2008………. I think you are on to something TOfan >”I find it interesting that David was on Star Search at age 12 and by the time he appeared on Idol five years later, Star Search was no more.

I remember Rickey’s!!!! I had no idea how to comment back then, but lurking was fun!!!
I enjoyed the poll TOfan…. made me think again of how cool this fanbase is… every part of it!!
“How is it that the little clip of D jamming with his cuz gets me right in the heart??? “….. same here.
and tofan, your take on AI, and D and the Crazy audition, manipulation, etc…. same here.
About “Crazy”, I have always thought that this first version that he did for a tv show appearence is probably pretty much how he did it on Idol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPqexpesfDw Since then, of course, he has powered it up even more – I am hooked on all the “Crazy” youtubes.
you’re probably right, but I still want to see it! LOL
When is he supposed to have performed “Crazy”? Was that when he was wearing that cream-colored shirt? I’ve never seen what he sang then. That was right after his audition and before he sang “Heaven”. All they ever show is the judges praising him but never the singing. Please someone answer…………..
Yes, that’s when, rose… they showed him sitting at the keyboard and the judges raving about his performance but they’ve never shown it.
Didn’t anyone every ask David about that? or the judges? or someone? I thought I was the only one wondering about that.
