New season of idol also means mentions of David’s legendary performances from Season 7.
One inspiring but funny contestant was Larry Platt and his “Pants on the Ground” song, now being memorized by the nation. Although he did not make it through to the next round, he did make his mark, ” You look like a fool with your pants on the ground.” Besides the humor in Idol, this season is still going on strong in the auditions stage. The 9th season of American Idol must live up to its previous one, while being able to add more songs to the American Idol hit list one day. This year the top 10 songs from American Idol stars were:
1. David Archuleta – Crush
2. Chris Daughtry – Home
3. Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway
4. Carrie Underwood – Before He cheats
5. Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me
6. Jordin sparks – No Air
7. David Cook – Permanent
8. Elliot Yamin – Wait for You
9. Kris Allen – Heartless
10. Katharine Mcphee – Over it
The big breakout performance, however, was Andrew Garcia’s aforementioned “Straight Up,” an unplugged ode to Paula Abdul that will go down with David Archuleta’s “Heaven” and Matt Giraud’s “Georgia On My Mind” as one of the most memorable Hollywood Week performances ever.
Other performances I will never forget are Katherine McPhee sitting on the stage and singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” And then there was cute little David Archuleta, who blew the audience away with his rendition of “Imagine.” It was brilliant. Nothing hack about these performances.
Hollywood Week forges on as Simon, Ellen, Kara, and Randy make the contestants turn chart hits into scathing doo-wop and beatbox numbers. The 90+ remaining trillers must work with one another in groups and build harmonies that conjure (imagined) memories of David Archuleta turning endless cartwheels in a prairie and giving high fives to excited deer. A tall order.
Are the judges hearing the same thing I’m hearing when Tim Urban sings? He’s the shaggy headed kid in the same group as Big Mike. I sort of understood giving him another chance in the first round of Hollywood, but his solo in the group number wasn’t any better. This kid must have made it to the top 12 males or they wouldn’t be giving him so much screen time. My hunch is they’re hoping to get tween viewers from his face time. He’s no David Archuleta. Give it up, producers.

Hello Archuleta Avenue!
This is Melanie Simons from Hypnotize Yourself (http://hypnotize-yourself.blogspot.com), a new blog which features different illusions and simple mind tricks which we believe are really interesting! From time to time, we post our own creations, which we base from popular illusions of the recent years.
For today’s entry, we posted a simple illusion which features none other than David Archuleta himself! The entry can be seen here at Hypnotize Yourself with David Archuleta. The simple instructions for the illusion are as follows:
- Stare at the center red dot for 30 seconds.
- Right after the staring at the red dot, immediately stare at a blank wall or a blank paper and blink TEN times.
As a new blog, we would like to extend our reach to as many people as possible! With this, I would like to ask if it is possible for you to post a simple news/blog entry featuring the David Archuleta illusion, probably with a simple link to Hypnotize Yourself.
