Musical Boy Wonder
MSN Malaysia Entertainment:
David Archuleta – talented singer, upcoming songwriter, good boy you can take home to (or for) mum
We’ve been fans of singing boy wonder David Archuleta right from his very first appearance on American Idol so when we were given a chance to the talented teen, the answer was a big yes followed by an excited squeal. In Malaysia for a promo tour, the 18-year-old’s schedule was considerably packed but when we met him, we couldn’t help but be impressed by the way he carried himself despite his long day. David was everything you saw on TV and more – immediately likable, contagiously enthusiastic and cute as a button.
How fun is it to be you right now?
I always have fun being me! [Laughs] I don’t know. I entertain myself easily with simple things like just being outside or listening to music.
Everyone we’ve spoken to has described you as cute and cuddly. Do you ever get tired of being called that?
Well, I don’t think I’m cute and cuddly! And what’s funny is before [ American Idol ], I didn’t used to give hugs to people.
Yes, but now I do because so many fans ask for hugs. I was like, ‘[Gives a look of disbelief] Why do you want a hug?’ I didn’t even give my family members hugs! I just wasn’t a hug-gy person. And so it’s funny because now I’ll hug anyone! I give hugs to my family and my friends now.
Do they find that strange?
I think they find it funny but it shows how you can improve and grow out of things. Like before, I used to be afraid of cameras too. So just now, when all the photographers were taking pictures, I’d be out of the room! There would be no way I would ever be in front of those cameras. I was camera-phobic.
Last year’s runner-up, David Archuleta, was also back for the finale, even serenading MTV News with a taste of his song “Touch My Hand” on the red carpet. So what does it feel like to be back? “It’s really different and really crazy,” he said. “I was a lot busier last year than I am right now. … Adam [Lambert] and Kris [Allen] are getting dragged all over the place.”
Check out the video HERE! David appears after Paula.
“Cant let this feeling endddd” yes, im sure david has received that reaction countless times everytime he sings.
David Blurbs in Finale Result Articles
ala Randy, Season 7 was DA bomb DAWG.
The crowd just reached new levels of loud, which means that David Archuleta is here! David was vying for the title of American Idol at last Season’s finale. He decided to say hello to the crowd before taking the carpet.
As the clock ticks closer and closer to show time, bigger celebrities begin to stream onto the carpet. David Archuleta walks by and he’s clearly being hustled into the show by his people. A reporter next to me yells out, “David, just one picture, please!” David looks at him and smiles, tries to stop but his tough lady publicist keeps him moving. He really is the nicest kid alive.
The outcome echoed last year’s contest, when Cowell all but crowned David Archuleta after the performance finale — but the victory went to David Cook.
The matchup has the potential to be a reprise of last year, when David Archuleta appeared to outduel David Cook. “You came out here tonight to win, and what we have witnessed is a knockout,” judge Simon Cowell told Archuleta — who then proceeded to lose to Cook.
So I guess that leaves us with a similar scenario from last season’s show with David Archuleta and David Cook battling it out. The judges loved Archuleta for his marketability for the young teenage crowd, and the viewers loved the rock and roll music of David Cook. So what we ended up with on all the after shows was duel interviews as if they both won. Archuleta did managed to have quite a following after the show and was promoted like crazy to the younger crowd on the Disney radio and Disney Channel.
David was mentioned First under the “People we can Recognize” Category. Above well, many other big names.

David & Fans
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — With fans lined up on Chick Hearn Court and Nokia Plaza waiting for their American Idol of choice, it wasn’t that surprising that a wave of squeals could be heard.
The screams were for David Archuleta, who was Season 7’s runner-up in what is known as the David vs David match-up, a hotly contested sing-off that changed the face of television.
At least, that’s what a 13-year-old fan told me when she sniffed at my ignorance of such important pop culture matters.
For her, this week’s NBA playoff games between the Lakers and Nuggets, being held just across the street at the Staples Center, are merely a backdrop to the more important events taking place inside the Nokia Theatre.
The final voting took place after last night’s performances, and either Adam Lambert or Kris Allen will be named this season’s winner during a results show that kicks off live for the east coast at 5pm Pacific Time.
