Many are getting ready to watch American Idol and I’m happy that many continue to enjoy the show that brought us David Archuleta. I will eternally be grateful to them for that.
I haven’t watched AI since season 7. I have tried many times but I just can’t find any enjoyment from it. I confess that my ears only crave David’s voice and none other will do.
This young man stole my ears, heart and soul through the course of his run on American Idol with his voice, passion, soulfulness, humility, genuine character, smile and heart.
Here are some of my favorites.
What were some of your favorite David Archuleta American Idol performances?

A good indicator of what’s on our minds and in our hearts reveals itself in the discussions held in The Voice Unplugged on Saturday nights. One of the topics that creates a lot of dialogue and squeeing is The American Idol Tour, Season 7. Yes, it’s been over four years and we’re still talking about it.
I’ll admit that sometimes, I’m the initiator of the discussion. I’ll also admit to incessantly grilling anyone at the mere mention that they’ve been to the tour. But there’s a reason for my madness. After Season 7 was over and the right David was not declared the official winner, I panicked at the thought of never seeing him again. I didn’t get tickets for the Idol Tour; I had too many other obligations. The result is that I am like a sponge; I want to hear every detail, big or small about the tour, about what I missed. I want to feel like l was there! As for tour footage from Season 7, I’m glued to my seat in Unplugged. So, I’ve decided to put my questions out in cyberspace to those of you who were lucky enough to witness his greatness. Thanking you in advance for your comments.
How did it feel to be in that audience? How about that applause? Sounds thunderous to me. Did you like/love/hate the shiny suit? Did David always come out before and after the show to greet fans and sign autographs? Did you give him a gift? What kind of gift? Did any other idols get gifts? Are there any special moments or stories you’d like to share? What about VIP experiences? Did you take pictures? If you’d like to share them here, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to post them for you.
Depending on your responses, I promise to behave and
never, hardly ever, grill anyone in chat about the Idol Tour again. Mostly. LOL
