The day after his BritWeek performance, David posted a blog. Read the entire blog to find out what he says about earthquakes! Yes, they do have earthquakes in Utah! DA Buzzing has written about it again and again.

music blog graphic for David Archuleta's blogs“I am checking in from LA today, and I’ve had some good writing sessions this week already. I worked with Guy Chambers, who wrote Angels with Robbie Williams, and Erika Nuri from The Writing Camp. I also had writing sessions last week with Sam Hollander and Sluggo, who my friend Travis from We The Kings actually told me about because he has worked a lot with them. I also worked with a bunch of other really great writers, who you’ve probably seen me talk about on Twitter. But I actually have another writing session today with the Nexus lol. And I’ll let you guys know how that goes too!…”

MTV’s Best Idol “Flawed” Poll

enlargeDavid Archuleta, "Imagine" by John Lennon, 26 Feb 2008, American Idol Top 20MTV’s Kyle Anderson conducted a poll asking “Which American Idol performance is the best of all time?” Conducted the day after Crystal Bowersox’s performance of “People Get Ready” on the current American Idol, Anderson said of Bowersox, “she elevated herself to the rare echelon of “American Idol” contestants who are in the conversation for the title of “Greatest ‘Idol’ Performance of All Time.”” The outcome of this poll was predicated on these two factors; polltakers quite naturally tend to vote for the last person they heard or read about in such glowing terms. This poll was flawed further by the fact that David Archuleta’s “Imagine,” a show-stopper for all time, was not included.

What’s MTV Newsroom Blog to do? Well, create a new “fan-nominated edition,” of course! The poll question was “Which fan-nominated “American Idol” performance is the best of all time?” The second poll included both Archuleta and Adam Lambert’s “Mad World.” Archuleta won handily.

Is MTV Newsroom Blog playing fast and loose with the Archies and the Glamberts?
