David Archuleta Weekly Wrapup

4 April 2010




pikepss Weekly on David Archuleta

Good morning Honeybees and fans!

Excitement is in the air! David Archuleta has scheduled book signing appearances on the East Coast and other locations. As we continue to watch American Idol we realize just how much we miss David and were spoiled by the Season 7 talent. A halftime appearance at a Utah football game will help many with their ODD. David’s Twitter followers keep rising. A charity auction will end on April 5th and bumper stickers for another cause can be had for a few dollars.

As this will be my last posting for Weekly Wrapup I want to thank many Honeybees and fans for their positive comments over the last several months and hope you enjoyed my impression of David’s week. I wish everyone a safe and Happy Easter!


David Archuleta’s Cousin In The Hospital
by Disney Dreaming
March 31, 2010

David Archuleta Tweeted that his cousin David is in the hospital, and that he would appreciate it if his fans could pray for him.

“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time. …and tribulations, we are given them to learn, grow, and help others progress.”

“My cousin David is about to go into surgery. He got into a bad car wreck. If you could help pray for him I’d appreciate it a ton!”

We hope he’s ok!

Idol News Roundup for Tuesday, March 30th
Seattle Times by Nina Pardo

My personal advice is that no one dare touch “Shop Around” tonight (or any night for that matter). It doesn’t get any better than David Archuleta from Season 7 Can I admit here that I still have this performance saved on TiVo?

We hope you’ll check back here this afternoon at 5:00 p.m. Pacific (8:00 p.m. Eastern) for live-blogging of tonight’s Top 10 singing R&B hits with Usher as mentor. Who do you think is going home this week?

Top 10 Idol Sellers

#10 David Archuleta (Season 7): 962,000 albums sold. David is pictured here onstage at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in LA on July 17, 2009

David Archuleta at Nokia Theatre, LA, 17 July 2009 One of American Idol’s youngest competitors to date, David Archuleta, came close to becoming the seventh “American Idol” in 2008, but narrowly lost out to David Cook. As America has seen, however, his second place finish didn’t stop “Archie” from making it big. The singer released his self-titled debut album shortly after the show in 2008, featuring romantic ballads like “Crush” and “To Be with You.” It went gold within several months. The sweet and talented David has since sold a total of 962,000 albums. Like fellow “Idol” star Clay Aiken, Archuleta also released a Christmas album, which he titled, Christmas from the Heart in 2009.

American Idol judges say Didi Benami not worth saving

Last night’s American Idol results show was one of the weirdest ones yet. They forego the usual performance as a group to focus more attention on the judges. Given the rumors circulating about Simon possibly leaving at the end of American Idol’s ninth season, I do not think it is a good idea to focus more on the judges.

I think the attention should shift away from the judges and back on the contestants, where it belongs….

The second season winner and runner-up, Ruben and Clay, and season seven’s winner and runner-up, David Cook and David Archuleta, were the best so far in the history of American Idol.

Top 9 Analysis: Or why Season 7 Was The Best Season Ever
Idolwild 2010

Lennon-McCartney songbook? Again? REALLY?

This week is going to suck hardcore, mainly because the BEST SEASON EVER had two weeks filled with the Lennon-McCartney classics, and had various other takes on the songbook that have gone down in Idol history as the greatest performances of all time. Carly Smithson’s Come Together was arguably the best female vocal of all time; David Cook made his original case for the crown with his swagger-filled version of Eleanor Rigby; and David Archuleta’s Imagine may well be the best performance on the show of all-time. Really, the producers are just setting these kids up for failure.

Read the rest.
