Hours before American Idol officially announced David’s guest appearance, Idolsnow triggered a Twitter frenzy by asking fans to guess who the mystery guest was. Dropping several hints, @idolsnow got more than 344 new followers in less than 24 hours.

Some of the hints were:

  • He’s been watching American Idol since the first season
  • He’s been interviewed by Fred Bronson
  • He has at least 2 vowels in his last name (and maybe more)
  • He has either a first or last name that has an “A” as the first or second letter (or both!)

Idolsnow’s backstage interview with David Archuleta is available for download for your iPhone or iTouch. You can download the interview at iTunes or Idolsnow. David gives details about his book, next CD & “Imagine.”
