Why the Hype?
Tony Potter, Rexburg Standard Journal
21 June 2010

I’m a 28-year-old male. My musical tastes include Keane, U2, They Might Be Giants, Regina Spektor and Broadway soundtracks. I am not what I would have called a typical David Archuleta fan. And even though I have interviewed him twice, and met him twice more, I had never, until Saturday night, heard a single song sung by him….

What’s the lesson learned here? I guess it’s that hordes of young ladies and women falling over the pop icon with dreamy eyes and a magical voice can’t always be counted on to be irrational and lacking in real musical inclinations. It turns out, every once in a while, the hype is dead on.

Which Idol’s fans rock the vote the hardest?
Brian Mansfield, USA Today
25 June 2010

Whatever you think of online polls, this one takes the cake. Methinks Mr. Mansfield has his tongue firmly in cheek. Many David Archuleta fans were warned not to take the bait, but we still came in second. The winner was Clay Aiken fans! But the big question is and will remain: who was casting the votes?
