21 October 2010

Sorry Archie fans, the former American Idol runner-up sees his sophomore studio set—somewhat unfortunately titled The Other Side of Down—experience the chart’s largest percentage drop on the tally, as it collapses 13-71 with a 74% decline in sales in its second week (moving from 24,000 to 6,000)….

David Archuleta Stays Busy, Releases Third Album
by Alicia Rancilio, Associated Press Writer, ABC News
22 October 2010

There are two kinds of runner-ups on “American Idol”: Those who fall off the radar (sorry, Blake Lewis) and those who stay on it. He may not be as splashy as Adam Lambert or sold as many total albums as Clay Aiken, but David Archuleta belongs in the latter category when it comes to second-place finishers on the Fox talent show….

David Archuleta, Wikipedia’s Most-Edited Music Star, and Either a Tenor or Baritone
by Daniel D’Addario, URLesque.com
6 October 2010

David Archuleta, American Idol runner-up in 2008, has become in 2010 the subject of a Wikipedia free-for-all, where the facts of his personal history and his career are up for grabs.

Oops! This was in my Weekly Wrap research folder two weeks ago, but I forgot to include it. Great story! People actually argue over whether David is a tenor. Don’t they know how a baritone sounds?
