Davids Rock MOA
Thousands of Filipino fans flocked to the concert of “American Idol” sensations David Cook and David Archuleta Saturday night at the Mall of Asia. The concert came a year after the two won the competition.

They came, they saw, they conquered.
If the Youtube clips are any indication, “American Idol” Season 7 winner David Cook and runner-up David Archuleta put on an epic show for a huge crowd today in Manila, Philippines. We’ll have to wait for the official numbers, but pre-show predictions called for a crowd of anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 people.
It was the first time since last summer’s “American Idol” tour that the Davids appeared at a concert together. In fact, “Cookie” invited “Archie” out onto the stage to help sing the closing lines of “A Daily Anthem” during the show today. Here are a couple of clips from the show:
First up is Cook’s “A Daily Anthem,” with a guest appearance from Archuleta. Great to see that these guys are such great buddies:

When we host a NEWSWEEK roundtable (say, for the Oscars or the Emmys), we do it in person, and with the doors locked so the stars can’t escape. We tried that for our first American Idol roundtable, but unlike George Clooney, Anne Hathaway and Brad Pitt, the Idols are so busy that they couldn’t coordinate their schedules. So this time around, we hosted our first phone roundtable, inviting four of the show’s winners (Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks and Jordin Sparks) and two of the most popular finalists (David Archuleta and Kellie Pickler). Archuleta called in early-from London-and it became clear that the Idolers are like old pals. Studdard complained that he wanted to play golf with Hicks but he had to perform instead. Hicks made dinner plans with Pickler and said he was going to pop up on her tour to play harmonica. “You’ve got my number,” she said. “Just call me.” The youngsters, Archuleta and Sparks, Twittered all through our 90-minute chat. And Fantasia-well, let’s just say we wish we could have had her in a locked room.
I want to ask you all about the idea of fame in the Internet age. Do any of you YouTube yourselves?
Sparks: I can’t do it.
Studdard: All the time. People have camera phones everywhere now. You never know what could be traveling around the Internet with your face on it.
Pickler: I don’t even want to know.
Archuleta: I hate seeing myself. I haven’t even watched half the shows I’ve been on. When people play clips during interviews, I’m like, “Please turn it off.”
Archuleta: I’m in England. I’m a supporting act for a group called McFly.
Fantasia: Oh, that’s big. Congratulations, Dave.
Hicks: What time is it [there]?
Archuleta: It’s, like, 8.
Hicks: Is that morning or night?
Studdard: Is your room small, man?
Archuleta: Yeah. Pretty much. What’s funny is that when I went to the other people’s rooms¾the other band’s members¾and their rooms are all bigger than mine.
Archuleta: That’s OK, though. It’s not like that much bigger. And it’s not like I’m here anyway. I just sleep here. And Twitter.
Hicks: I was on last week. I was a little nervous.
Sparks: I watched. You did great.
Studdard: I was nervous, too, when I performed in March.
Archuleta: I sucked when I went on. Did you watch it again later?
Archuleta: No. I just knew I did bad. I was so nervous. I hadn’t been nervous in so long. The second I saw Simon and Kara and their faces, I was like, “Oh my gosh, they’re going to critique me.” I wasn’t expecting to feel that way. It really freaked me out.
Archuleta: I don’t think they realize it’s a one-way thing going on. You’re not getting to know them.
Sparks: Do you get people coming up to you and giving you a hug?
Sparks: Do they throw their underwear?
Archuleta: That’s never happened before.
Hicks: It will happen. Trust me.
Studdard: Do people ever walk up to you guys, if you’re at the airport chilling, and say, “Why aren’t you smiling?”
Sparks: Oh, my God, yes.
Studdard: What’s that about?
Hicks: You’re smiling all the time, David. You don’t get that question because you’re inherently happy all the time.
Can we do it at Jordin’s house?
Sparks: Yeah. Everybody come to my house. My nana will cook.
Archuleta: What does she make?
Sparks: Really good chicken and dumplings and wild-rice soup and pigs in a blanket. She could make whatever you guys wanted. Just send in your favorite recipes.
