David Archuleta Instagram Message To His Fans

Posted by djafan on Saturday, April 9, 2016

*EDIT* find the answer for Cinthia at the bottom!* Hey y'all, I know a lot of you were bummed I didn't sing in the idol finale and asked why I didn't sing. It wasn't that I didn't want to. I'm way bummed I wasn't able to be more a part of it!! 😦 😦 😦 but it wasn't because they wouldn't let me. It was simply that I thought I wouldn't be able to until a few days before. I'm glad I was able to be there and still be on stage for a moment with everyone. We sometimes wish things would have gone differently, but life doesn't always go the way we hope it to at first. I'm so glad I could be there! I was reminded of the stressful and overwhelming moments that broke me down a lot of times, but also of the many good people that helped me get back up. I was reminded of the moments that changed my life on the show. I'm glad I got to be a part of it all throughout the years. I'll write a blog in the next couple of days to share more thoughts with y'all. I will say not being stressed and having so much attention, I was able to enjoy the time backstage saying bye to everyone and meeting the people that worked behind the scenes. I love meeting the people who are also a part of the show in both big ways and small ways that no one else ever sees or hears about. Thank you all for your concerns. Yeah, I am sad I didn't sing but also happy I was there. Really, if I had sung I would've taken someone else's spot and I think it worked out how it needed to. Someone else needed to give out what was in their heart this time. It was Trent and La'Porsha's time to shine most anyway. (And boy, did they shine. What a great final finale!) No worries, I will keep finding ways to sing up ahead as long as y'all keep supporting. Thank you for your continued support and concern! It's nice to know people still care enough to ask. I got a picture with one of the talent escorts backstage, Cinthia here. I guessed her ethnicity on one try. Can you guess it? 😉 ***UPDATE ON CINTHIA*** if you guessed she was Guatemalan, then you're right!** #idolfinale #backstage #thanks #americanidol #cinthia

    Abrra and Djafan:

    Can I just say that I am so glad this all happened this year and not last? This year he is able to show up, be relaxed, nod to the cameras, hug people, be present: all the things that he would have done before – yet struggled with, and could not have done at all last year.

    I miss the “cute” teen – like I miss my own kids teen years – no problem there. I love the DA now, and all that is now available to him, both from the world without and from his world within.

    *sigh*

    Happy “mom” feelings.

    It felt with so good to get this IG from David. He even sounded a little like the old David to me. I have to say that I had mixed emotions about David’s part in the Idol finale. I was surprised he didn’t have a singing part, showcasing his talents like they did for the others. And I was also happy that he was happy in all the pictures I saw of him.

    But after examining my feelings as a long time fan, something just seemed not right, like an imbalance, similar to how I felt at the results of Season 7. It felt as if the last piece to the puzzle didn’t fit. I didn’t want Idol history to close without acknowledging how significant David was to the show.

    Little did I know that he felt badly too and didn’t mean for it to happen this way. Celebrities often have scheduling conflicts making them unable to attend events. He felt bad that the fans felt bad and wrote an explanation. He made me, for one, feel better to learn that it was not that they didn’t want him to sing and it was not that he didn’t want to sing. It was just one of those things that couldn’t be helped.

    The explanatory IG was a very nice gesture on his part!
    Thank you, David. ❤

    David will never stop showing concern about how the other guy feels. My goodness, what other performer says , “Yeah, I am sad I didn’t sing but also happy I was there. Really, if I had sung I would’ve taken someone else’s spot and I think it worked out how it needed to. Someone else needed to give out what was in their heart this time.”

    And then, “No worries, I will keep finding ways to sing up ahead as long as y’all keep supporting. Thank you for your continued support and concern! It’s nice to know people still care enough to ask.” He wonders why we love him… why he’s our #1 Idol.

    I’m glad that he was able to be there. That he was able to share in the happiness that was there. That he didn’t have to feel the stress that he may have felt had he performed. Yes, sometimes things don’t work out just the way we would like them to, but in the end it’s usually the best way. And…. that he was able to recognize those things that have helped make him who he is.

    David….. you are still ‘just David’!!! ♥♥

    Here is what Brooke White said about not being asked to be in the Idol finale.

    A big hug and a thank you to all of you who reached out last night. Nope, I was not at the last Finale in Idol History. I'd hoped I would be, but never got the call. Why? No idea. Was I bummed? Surely. BUT… – The Idol experience is a mixed bag: high highs and low lows, triumphs and embarrassments, moments when producers are calling you darling and giving you cheek kisses and then moments when you feel utterly invisible. Moments of pride and moments of humility. You do something right, then you get it all wrong. Everyone knows your name, then they forget. One second you're flying first class, next minute your back in the van. But that's life in the spotlight. It's on, then it's off. BUT… – With all that, what Idol was, and has been for so many of us, is OPPORTUNITY. Opportunity to be seen, to be heard, to connect and to be refined. It's was an education, a university. A place to be schooled with the best of the best, To be mentored by literal legends and to play on a stage with a well oiled machine. It was a family. Contestants and crew, and drivers and PA's and people that you grow to love. It wouldn't and couldn't guarantee a lifetime of fame and fortune and success thereafter, but it definitely gave you a shot, to see how far you could take it. It allowed you to see how badly you wanted it, and to find out what you would and wouldn't do for it. It gave you experience. – That's what it gave me and then some. And it was once in a lifetime. It was some of the hardest fun I've ever had. It forced me to face my demons. I barely survived but it was an absolute honor to play in your living rooms for a season. – So I wasn't there last night, to reunite, and hug the "family" and say my goodbyes. Would have loved to. But that's okay, because I couldn't ask for more than what I got. – So if my last memory of the finale is sitting on a stage next to THE Graham Nash singing Teach Your Children barefoot on the guitar 8 years ago, that's A-OK 😊 Idol brought me to so many of you. To those who've stuck with me through the years, I love you, I appreciate you. And to my idol family, I love you and appreciate you. – Thanks for everything. And the beat goes on… #americanidol

    So glad I got to spend the day with this amazing mother o' mine on her birthday today!!! It was a special birthday for her because it's the big 50–And people still come up asking who's my girlfriend when I'm with her. 😂 I couldn't be more grateful for her. What an unconditional love she has. I love how she has never treated one of us 5 kids different from the other. No matter what happens to us–good or bad. Success or disappointment. From her humble beginnings in Honduras living in a one-room tiny home on stilts with one light-bulb with her 3 sisters and parents after Hurricane Fifi devastated her town, to God's guidance to continue on in faith and bring her to the land of opportunity in the U.S., I have learned from her that no matter the changes in our lives the bonds of family and trust in God are what matter above all else. I love this beautiful woman so much and I get teary-eyed just thinking about her selflessness, listening heart and encouraging guidance. We had a family dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Utah, Simply Thai. 👌🏼👌🏼happy birthday mi mama! Love ya!! #mom #mama #happybirthday #birthday #50 #foreveryoung #family #simplythai #thaifood #Utah

    Abrra, I had heard about Brooke but hadn’t read her words, what sadness. It makes no sense to me.

    Bluesky, I agree with your sentiments, David probably wasn’t ready last year to be immersed in the idol festivities.

    Bebe, it is such a good feeling to see David enjoying himself. And after reading his blog as much as I wanted the world to see and hear him this was probably best for him. There will be other opportunities.

    I love this. So glad it was captured for all the fans to see. The energy and sheer joy of all sharing this connection with David is surreal.

    Glad David posted the Instagram for the fans. Glad he made it out for the final Idol, I think he got more from attending than he realized he would, and that makes me happy. ♥
    It was hard for me to get through that show to the end, because I kept seeing places they could have slipped him right in, with no rehearsal necessary! lol (talking about groups) Or maybe had him sing a page out of the phone book! ♥ 🙂
    But hey, that’s just me being a fan …who could have done without watching the never ending extravaganza of a certain judges’s performance which took up almost 6 minutes..yeah,that. OK I feel better getting that off my chest,thank you.
    anyway, so happy he was there♥and looking forward also to the blog he said he would write!!!

    Lupe sure looks good,.love that pic love her hair.
    Like mother like son…can’t tell their age.good genes♥lucky ducks! haha
    .What is it about David mentioning Thai food again that makes me smile?

    This from Masterclass Lady!

    “Like many of you, I was so disappointed that David Archuleta was not added as a featured performer during the American Idol Finale last week.

    Arguably, he was one of the greatest American Idol finds and that gentleman standing next to him in the above photo – David Cook – shares this unique position in my personal opinion.”

    However, David had his reasons and, a few days ago, shared them on Instagram:

    (see article for David’s Instagram message)

    “So, in other words, David humbly relinquished his spot so that others – particularly the Final 2 of Season 15, Trent Harmon and La’Porsha Renae– could have more time on stage. I love him even more for doing this – as if I need more reasons to love him. What a special young man and even greater role model to everyone, young and old.

    However, could someone explain to me why Jennifer Lopez dominated the stage with a number that lasted about 7 minutes or so? Seriously? Does she really need this exposure? We tuned into the show to watch the Idols – not her.

    I am sure she would have continued to sell her CDs and pack her shows or whatever without grabbing the limelight away from the Season 15 Top 10. Or from someone as talented as David Archuleta who, by the way, can sing circles around her.

    End of rant. More to come. Stay tuned. Comments are now open for business. ”

    29…I agree with the rant on JLo! Just ridiculous…the finale was to be for the general audiences, about the finalists and past contestants! Not the coochie, coochie stuff…that was more for a Vegas audience. Didn’t know how long it lasted because I fast forwarded through it! 🙂

    My 2 cents of ranting is that I don’t know why “The Prayer” was chosen to be sung, with David not singing it! Couldn’t believe it. I actually didn’t recognize it a first because it was different from David singing. Then I was thinking…that’s David’s song! Not fair! jmopo Just like David was fine about losing, he is fine with not singing on the finale, but that isn’t the way I feel at all!! Dja, I’m not over it either!!!!!!!!! 🙂

    I totally agree with the rant about JLo. If I want to see someone with a large booty shake it nearly naked, I can look in the mirror. If I had young children who were watching the show, I would have taken them out of the room. My son used to tell his boys, when they were young, to cover their eyes when something came on he didn’t want them to see. I took them to see the animated Tarzan years ago, and when Tarzan kissed Jane, I looked at the boys and they had their eyes covered. So funny. They definitely would have had them covered for that mess with JLo.
