David had a very busy week! He was in Los Angeles for American Idol finale festivities. In fact it was David who provided the entertainment for the pre-idol party on Monday evening at Elevate Lounge, an open-air patio with 150 feet of sliding glass doors surrounding the lounge which is on the 21st floor penthouse of a Los Angeles glittering skyscraper.
“Had a really fun night! :). Got to see @RealBrookewhite and Kristy Lee Cook. Excited for the idol finale tomorrow!” he tweeted.
David sang four songs at the party; two covers, “Gotta Be“ by Des’ree and “Soul Sister“ by Train and two of his own songs, “Crush“ and an unreleased song “If I Could Only Be” that he hopes will make the cut on his new CD to be released in the Fall. He was at ease talking to the crowd of familiar idol-mates who were very enthusiastic as they sang along to the familiar songs and grooved to his new surprise.

This week David won Billboard’s Best Idol award with a whopping 92% of the vote over Carrie Underwood. This was based on Billboard’s ranking of all the idols according to song and album sales and radio play. Carrie Underwood won best female and David handily took the title of best male idol. Fans were then asked to vote between Carrie Underwood and David Archuleta for who they felt was overall the best idol ever. David’s fans turned out in droves! David told Billboard that he was really flattered.
“I guess the fans I have are just really supportive. I think it’s cool that people consider me their favorite, especially because it’s Billboard. I check Billboard every week and I’m starting to get the magazine more, and I have a Billboard book, so it’s just funny that this is from Billboard, too….I think that’s cool.”
On Tuesday afternoon, we got a good look at David’s new hairstyle as he chatted with countless reporters outside the Nokia Theater.
