    Thanks dja. Love their support of David! Hope he gets there soon for a full blown concert, they deserve it.

    Still smiling over last nights performance.

    Welcome Emmegirl, I love seeing the attention David gets overseas.

    Music Reviews 10 – It’s an audio party

    While Avril Lavigne was rocking to her new single What The Hell at Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, David Archuleta was jamming to two songs from his latest sophomore pop album The Other Side of Down which saw the youngster brave the cold and deliver two energetic performances of the title track and Elevator which you can check above and below respectively. One thing about Archuleta, is that he’s always a fantastic singer and this was no exception.

  13. emmegirl said

    dja, thanks for that link, great review and the quality of those vids is terrific, and they also show the intro.

    Watching those amazing performances last night, the soulful slant to his “quirky” songs, well, as Cook’s dog refers to him, he is “The Archuleta”. By far, best of the night, period.

    Thanks, JR!
    I can’t get enough of “Falling Stars” in any way, shape or form. I even use it as a default ringtone for my cell phone. Beautiful vocals that night. Thanks to quiteblanc, for her terrific ninja skills.:)

    Lazy day today….

    Be in TVU soon(ly).

    This from IDF. David needs more exposure, come on 2011!!!!

    The Other Side of Down is now ranked 889 on the iTunes overall album chart. This is its first appearance in I don’t know how long. On Pop, the album is at 130 and 234 – also the highest the two albums have been for a very long time. I know these chart rankings jump around hourly but it really shows the value of a national TV appearance. It makes you wonder how much better the album would have done with some real promotion or radio play.

    dja Found it on Twitter, where I spend too much time. It’s the only one of it’s kind. Maybe more will surface.

    #23 …Abrra’s word!

    Are we gonna survive twenty?

    I wonder what it will bring too David. I want it to bring all you wish for it to. He looked very happy and completely comfortable up there on that national stage last night. I cannot get enough of those performances.

  29. JR – thanks for QB audio & picture video. Love that song (FS)from first lis by ten. Like Bebe can’t get enough of that song. Wish I could hear it on the radio, though. NW (esp Seattle ) just does not appreciate pure vocal talent. Family was watching HDMTV on top tours in 2010. NO vocal talent, just MAJOR production – alot of pyrotech & bigger than life props & stunts. Really awful stuff, IMHO.

    Been away for awhile (stuck in Philly last week & now sick in MD) but wanted to thank the Admins here for all they do to make our life richer. Love the gift from the Voice to David. Love the MOTAB videos, the concert reviews and beautiful (and entertaining) comments that follow. Happy New Year!

    Hello Fanda, Happy New Year to you and I hope you’re feeling better!!!!

    This from 92.3 Now Hit Music Channel

    To ring in New Year’s Eve, some of us hit the town. Some of us hit our pillows. Pop stars hit the streets to celebrate the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. As we recover from our NYE celebrations, let’s check out how our favorite celebs rocked the night.

    Travie McCoy and David Archuleta stole the show on Nancy O’Dell‘s NYE special. Stay tuned for Travie’s video. Until then, check out former American Idol contestant David Archuleta’s performance of “Elevator”.

    This from Bring Da Beat Back

    David Archuleta took the stage on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live to ring in 2011 with a pair of performances, including the title track, from his latest album The Other Side Of Down. David braved the cold & delivered two great vocal showings!

    djafan, chat..a very warm, fun place. I will return. :)

    Wow, look what a little national exposure can do! And seeing him perform anything, it suddenly becomes your favorite, haha! And I love his live performances of STR! Wish he could rock that one on national tv! Can’t wait to see him do them all in concert.

    oh, while we’re on the subject :) …lovin the hunkerdowns when he sings “doooown, doooown”, and that toe/hip swivel thing at 2:42-:43 after he sings “fighting”, like a little kung-fu type move.

    Getting desperate for more performance vids…oh, you can tell?

    (I kinda love every little move he makes)

    #36 -
    I’m not asking for much this year; but David please, please… keep “looking and then smiling” (in all your future performances)just like you did at 1:11 in this TOSOD video!!

    I’m with you, Emmegirl… but, I (for sure) love every move he makes!!
    Happy New Year, everyone!

    Hey DJA, Abbra, Angelica and everyone here at The Voice!
    Just stopping by to wish everyone here a wonderful and healthy New Year. I visit often to read great articles and commentary from a bunch of fun individuals. Hoping to join in for chat one of these days. Happy New Year Once Agaain!

  39. Abrra said

    Joymus!

    Please come to chat for sure :) It’s every Saturday night at 9pm est. We always have a fun time catching up with David’s activities !

    Speculation by me :
    It’s a rather slow Sunday, I am beginning to think David went skiing or snowboarding in Utah. He is a natural athlete so I am sure he will do fine if he did go.

    David Archuleta On Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live Special
    2 01 2011

    I missed this one on New Year’s because I was watching ABC for their lineup, however one of my personal pop fave’s, David Archuleta, performed two songs from his latest album The Other Side of Down to help Fox ring in the New Year in Las Vegas. Unfortunately Archie is another underrated pop artist; his albums have both featured solid offerings in terms of radio-ready pop song construction. His choruses are as sweet as he is, and he could sell a record on his charm alone, though that voice is certainly a great bonus. David performed the title track, as well as ‘Elevator;’ I love both of these songs and David did really great, so check out the performances in case you missed them!

    David Archuleta – Anaheim Concert and New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas

    Two Are Better Than One

    Pamela Pike, Yahoo! Contributor Network

    The Holidays are over in David’s kingdom of music and there were some awesome blessed nights.

    David Archuleta has a positive influence on his fans, through his lyrics David’s fans have been able to connect and relate. His energy is infectious. These two latest events again proved
    his worth as a star performer.

    David Archuleta Performs “The Other Side of Down” on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live
    Posted on 01/02/2011 by Kirsten| Leave a comment

    Being the nerd that I am, I DVR’d three different New Year’s Eve specials to make sure I didn’t miss any music performances, and a surprise favorite of mine was David Archuleta’s performance on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live of “The Other Side of Down.”

    It was the first time I had heard the song ever, and it’s pretty dang catchy! I really enjoyed watching Archie just own the stage. He has definitely come a long way, since his Idol days. I definitely want to check out his live show the next time he rolls into town.

    That said, check out his performance below!
