Djafan’s Recap ~ At the Idol Viewing Party With David Archuleta

Posted by djafan on Thursday, May 26, 2011

Photo by Frazer Harrison

Loving the whipped hair. ^^^

Our inveterate field reporter for the west coast and all things LA, scored last minute tix to the Kiisfm Idol Viewing Partaaay last night!!!!! The following are some communications relayed from the scene along with some totally unnecessary and senseless commentary by me.

For clarity, as far as that is possible, Djafan’s words are in red, my .02 cents are in blue.

Texts from the field:

I’m here.

Standing with archiefandoc from fanscene and her hubby.

Free food and drinks.

My view.

%^*$&h#$%*($#@@W&g 😯   #y7*y%!!!*aiy$!!

Jojo from KIIS FM giving out prizes.

David is here!!!!!!!!!!


I enjoy the abstract quality of this.  🙂

Went to bathroom and saw him in the lobby!



Photo Matt Sayles

Nice pants and leather jacket.  I approve.  Thumbs ^ backatcha.

Tried to converse with Patty on the phone after the show but she was so excited over his performance she forgot Bebe and I were there.  😆

We could hear the squeeing in the background with fans. 

She got the ENTIRE performance on video.  Like 40 minutes.  spazzzzzzzz>>>   😛

Her recap to follow below which (when I finally got her to come back to the phone) she informs me she will write,  upload, and publish in comments when she gets home and calms down. Or not. heh. Angelica signing off. Ciao for now.

    Hello VOICE peeps!!!!!
    ((((dja)))) take your time>>> we know it will be worth the wait and you must be ———!
    So happy you got to go to this. From the vids I have seen so far from Fanscene he was stellar once again!

    Angelica>>> my sentiments as well

    Don’t know if you guys have seen this, but these peeps got it right. Feeling very blessed to have tuned in to Season 7

    New York Post named David Cook – David Archuleta Finale as the Best Idol Finale of all

    (((((huge hugs))))) to all!


  3. Abrra said

    I am holding out for the close up video that JR mentioned in the last thread, before I make mp3’s. There should be less fan talking over David’s singing.

    I’ll check in later. 🙂



  4. Angelica said

    Good Morning everyone!

    Just talked with Djafan on the phone! She lost internet at home till later today and is uploading at work. She says he was absolutely amazing and beautiful and masculine off the charts! Sang the best “Crush” ever, “Crazy” and “I’ll Be.” Have not seen any videos myself as have been super busy at work this morning. She met Sunny Hilden who was super nice. (I never said she wasn’t lovely and nice, just objected to the OTT tweets but it seems she is afflicted with the same disorder we all have. 😉 ) So I woke up today and “sparkled” with anticipation for vids from last night and then this weekend, Mrytle Beach!!!! We just want more and more and more from him, don’t we? 😆

    Hey Ref, Sky, Abs!!! ((((Group huggies))))


  5. skydancer1x said

    feelin’ the love! ‼
    “We just want more and more and more from him, don’t we? :lol:”

    David singing CRAZY with allergies almost did me in.Lord have mercy!


  6. djafan said

    Good morning!

    First thing to clarify, “David if you see this I wasn’t stalking you in the lobby lol” There were several professional photographers shooting away and I just followed and smiled, couldn’t stop smiling all night 🙂

    I had a blast! David singing songs I’ve heard many many times and yet they sound so fresh. We say this every time but what is going on with his voice? It sounded out of this world!

    The tone, the notes, the tenderness, the power, the richness, the clarity, the cry, the sensitivity, the new runs, the lower notes, the softer notes, the high notes the oh no’s the the the lol I could go on and on every single one perfection. I feel so blessed to have been able to go!!!

    Sorry to Bebe and Angelica for leaving them hanging, I ran into several Archangels and you all know what happens when Archie’s meet up ♥ Hoping they delurk! And I also spoke to Sunny Hilden, I know we’ve discussed her tweets and all that, but she felt genuine and sincere in her admiration of David and was so glad when I told her I had video of the entire thing, she said good we need video! I also stood in line with Archiefandoc from Fan Scene and Mr. Archiefandoc great people!

    And I’m going to fangirl now, DAVID absolutely looked stunningly gorgeous!!!! The girls were running around with cameras in hand trying to get glimpses of him, definitely David was the “One” there.

    Ok, got that out.

    I have video and I’ll apologize before hand for my outbursts haha. I couldn’t keep my mouth shut 🙂 I didn’t turn it off just kept recording, got singing, banter and all, just love him. The bad news is that it’s sideway 😦 But I don’t want to hold up the viewing and hearing in taking the time to flip it. Will later. Enjoy ♥

    Admin Abrra edit: I uploaded Djafan’s video after I flipped it. She wanted me to add it in her comment.


  7. MunkFOD said

    djafan! gosh! thanks so much! love your recap, your video is priceless! It just means so much to us that can’t be to things like this! David sounds……well……I am speechless frankly! don’t know if I want to laugh or cry.. 😀 thanks again! David is free and you can see, hear and feel it! It is absolutely wonderful!


  8. SandyBeaches said

    OOOhhhhhh Djafan…David…who do you think you are?? Outstanding…well I guess we know now what he has been doing. The acoustics were perfect and he was so perfect.



  9. Marylee said

    Absolutely/Positively incredible! When is he going to cease to amaze me ~never I’m sure 🙂


  10. Silverfox said

    He just leaves me almost speechless. How can so much awesomeness be in one human being? I’m trying not to go overboard here, but there is no denying that David is one of the most amazing vocalists on the planet today. There are several songs David sings which leave me breathless and Crazy is just one. Sublime & emotionally crazy vocals!

    And of course he looks fantastic & that’s all I’ve got to say about that. 😉


  11. bebereader said

    One word: UEUUAU9F9O^***^%%$lpp__)_(y*^^)0098&&^^%%^%$@@#!!


    I am beyond thrilled that you got to attend last night;s event! You’re so right; David’s voice sounded OUT OF THIS WORLD! I am doubtful the acoustics were the only reason for his beautiful sound. He has so much control over his voice he can make it do almost anything!

    It’s never a problem to hear his songs repeatedly because no matter what he chooses to sing, the sound of his voice is heavenly. Heavenly doesn’t even do it justice. It just makes you feel sooo good that you never want the songs to end!

    Great recap!


  12. DJAFAN – I flipped your video for you. It is unlisted in my channel but I’ve put your name in the title. Am uploading it in mediafire so you can download it 🙂


  13. MT said

    Djafan, Thanks so much for the recap and video! I’m so glad you had a great time!

    David just continues to amaze!! His voice, as he matures, just gets better and better. ♥♥♥ And “Crazy” … was just CRAZY good. Even “Crush” made me sit up and take notice. Cuz it’s not the song, it’s the voice. ♥


  14. Abrra said

    I took Djafan’s video and flipped it upright. She will have to upload that fixed video to her account.

    I also took the great audio she had and made a single file mp3 of the full performance.I did some editing to the ends to eliminate some ear shattering screaming. 🙂 (My head is ringing from the editing) Haha!

    You can download the mp3 file here:

  15. Suzy-Q said

    Djafan, Thank you sooooo much for your recap and video from last night. The fact that you were there and witnessed the awesomness and then shared it with us in such a short time makes you awesome as well. I liked that you said, “masculine” heehee


  16. Tawna21 said

    Djafan, thanks for the video–and the recap. I’m so glad that you were able to be there ‘for us’. Even with allergies bothering him, David was outstanding!! 🙂 He has become so different–in a very good way–since freeing himself of contracts and management. You can feel it when he talks and sings. It’s like he doesn’t have to weigh every word he says for fear of ‘breach of contract’ kind of stuff. I’m so lovin’ it!

    Oh yes!! He looked SOOOOO good! I loved his banter about age–he cracks me up when he realizes that he’s 20 but doesn’t look it.

    Angelica!! That top picture!!! My gosh, girlfriend, that’s enough to stop your heart when you scroll down and there it is!! I whip lashed my head right into the back of my chair when it came into view. We definitely needed a warning to proceed with caution on that one! 😛

    JR thanks for the vids–once again, your talents have fed our needs! {{hugs}}



  17. Abrra said

    I sent her a flipped version today.



  18. gladys said

    Dja, I recognized your voice, I think. Thanks for the video, when I saw David as close to your camera, I froze, is like his would have happened around me.
    Thank you for this moment and thank you for everything.


  19. djafan said

    JR and Abrra, Thank you!!! Can’t access mediafire at work 😦 when I get home.

    Thanks all, I’m still on a David high like my daughter calls it 🙂 Do you hear him? My gosh…unreal.



  20. Heidijoy said

    I think I’m CRAAAAZY !!!! David, I like your kind of CRAAZY! wow and yes I have a Crush and we already think you are the BEST Friend of our Life.

    Thanks Angelica for tiding us over and thank you JR, Abrra and DJfan thanks for relaying your excitement,notes throughout the eve while we waited for the stream that never came and the Video of the evening was fantastic.
    David looks and sounded so good and he is so gracious to Allison,Lauren,Scotty and even Gnarls Barkley.

    I’ve watched sideways and upright numerous times.

    Excited to hear from those attending this weekend. Meantime this is a nice dose to tide us over!!


  21. Abrra said


    Go look again. The video is flipped straight now 🙂



  22. emmegirl said

    Could not wait to get home and see the vids again. Absolutely could not get my mind off them all day. He was insanely good! Could hardly talk, but sang like a god. That “bless your soul”…oh my. And the ending, I am at a loss.

    JR said it perfectly in the last thread, “He has transcended the perfectly technical aspect of his singing. In its place, he risked sounding more vulnerable… more raw… And the result is that he came as more real. Sublime pathos.”

    dja, so glad you got to go! How does one make such an impact with 2 1/2 songs?! Sounds liked they loved him! You may never recover from this one 😯

    Abs, indebted to you forevah for the mp3’s.

    At 1:18 on the ArchuletaFanScene Crazy vid a guy says “holy smokes” and another guy yells “crazy good” at the end. Love hearing him being appreciated by the males.

    “Crazy”…it is breath taking. Really, it took my breath away. Nearly every word had its own facial expression and emotion. I couldn’t stop watching it. He has studied, practiced and directed his artistry to another place and what a fabulous gift for us.

    I am nearly ready to go and that is just in ‘8’ short hours! Oh my, have Abrra ask me questions by email if you want to know something because I think that seeing him perform with his band will silence me again but I will check in with Abrra and the site from my Iphone tomorrow on.

    We called the hotel and it is blazing hot there and bumper to bumper traffic, oh my! It is supposed to be good weather for the concert they said!

    Good night!



  25. SandyBeaches said

    Abrra #23, the most handsome pictures to date. He looks like one happy guy!



  26. Abrra said


    Have a safe trip and feel free to text or call 🙂 I have Friday off.



  27. emmegirl said

    SB, safe travels, take sunscreen.
    We will be hanging on any utterances you can muster.
    However, understand if you are rendered completely incapacitated. Remember just blink once for yes and twice for no.


  28. xaris said

    Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been stuck in a vortex, but this performance of Crazy just won’t turn loose of me. Especially the one Djafan posted in #19–WOW! I don’t know if this new dimension in his performance comes from dumping Jive, or resting up for a few months, or if he is just flat out channeling some soul singer, but I like it!

    SB-“it is breath taking. Really, it took my breath away. Nearly every word had its own facial expression and emotion.” Yes, yes, yes!

    I am so jealous of everyone going to Myrtle Beach, but I hope you all have a safe trip. I know it’s going to be an unforgettable weekend. Eat your Wheaties on Saturday; I think you’re going to need a lot of stamina to make it through this concert-heh!

    A safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend to you all!


  29. Jan said

    All the pictures and videos are stunning! Thanks djafan for getting them to us. He just gets better and better…cannot believe the guy! When he opens up with that first note, it’s like a big caress and by the time the song ends, it feels like I had the biggest hug ever! Whoa!
    To everyone that’s going to MB, have a fantastic fun time and we’ll be waiting for some more good pics and videos. You lucky guys, thanks so much.

    Dja, I don’t know how you came out of that place in any way coherent. But am so glad you did. 🙂
    That voice of his. Well – He is more soulful than ever. It’s so beautiful. His sound. ♥
    We will need a month to recover from Crazy alone. Combine it with this weekend and I don’t even know.
    Good luck to all of us.
    *back to crazy*
    p.s. Loved the small black leather jacket.
    SB – Safe travels. Enjoy.
    Abs, those pictures. He is too gorgeous. Hot mess beautiful hair. I’ll stop now.
    Xaris – I am in the same vortex. See ya there.
    Emmegirl – Will I ever get over this Crazy insanity? Blinking twice.

    I am beyond happy for this weekend. Sandybeaches!!! Whooo! So glad you can go!! I feel fulfilled, satisfied, satiated, blessed and full of bliss. And… he hasn’t even begun his concert yet!

    I guess it just seems so worth waiting for that I somehow have not experienced a lack. But maybe it is also kinda like a three year old at Christmastime: they really have no idea of the wonder in store for them. Maybe it will be a whole new world. I’m okay with that.

    Amaze me, DA. I know you can and I love you for it.


  34. Tawna21 said

    SB- have a safe trip…can’t wait for updates…I’m so relieved to hear the weather is going to be good…keep hydrated–we don’t want you passing out from the heat that is weather related–when it comes to the heat coming from the stage, well, just breathe deep and go with the flow. {{hugs}} to you that are going–have a blast!!



  35. Esp for international fans who cannot access —


    To all those going to MB, have a blast! Be safe. Woo-hoo!


  36. bluesky said

    “Never sing anything you don’t believe in.”

    Life-line, DA. That’s a life-line. Never give in, never surrender to anything but what you know can catch you when you fall and raise you as well – to heights you never dreamed of. Thanks so much for just being you.

    (you old youngster, you.)


  37. djafan said

    My internet is down so I am on my little palm pree. I am so glad to be able to share, two and a half songs and I am still floating, uncredible. Iam notcoherent yet. Forgot to mention that he high fived as he walked by wheni put my hand up, thought I was dreaming. Hadto confirm with daughter, I wasn’t dreaming it happenend.

    How can this child improve on perfection?- and do it in such a nonchalant way?

    Between the 1st picture of this thread, the GQ photo (#8-4th down) of the last thread and what is hidden under that blue t-shirt of the Dogers game – I need a defibrillator implant!


  39. Susie said

    Did anyone notice in #23 – 2nd picture down – the picture in the post vs. the picture in the left side bar?
    His beauty is indiscribable!


  40. emmegirl said

    Highfive, he saw you. 🙂


  41. pattiNC said

    Looking forward to MB tomorrow..leaving this afternoon for my short ride down there…unfortunately I know what kind of traffic MB gets, and expecting the worse! Hoping to meet SB and SF this go around! Crazy, gave me CHILLS!! (record breaking heat this past week (97), but not as bad now..phew!)


  42. Annie 318 said

    Over at FOD is a picture of David with Showbiz Shelley. They look so darned cute together! It looks like it was taken at the AI10 party.

    I remember watching 2 different interviews she did with David. I think they were about a year apart. They seem like they have some chemistry. Cute!
