As Simon Cowell said on the show, he is "the one to beat". The people in the audience can't stop screaming for him. Disturbingly, you can even hear some of the blokes in the crowd getting more excited than the chicks. Steady on chaps or other Idol hopeful Danny Noriega will get jealous.
An amusing thing about David Archuleta's performances is the big breaths that he inhales before singing each line in a song. It is so distracting to listen to that incessant gasping. The deep breathing is further magnified by the studio micropohones. Really, that gasping for air rubbish has to go.
Nevertheless, the producers of American Idol are pimping up David Archuleta every chance they get on the show in order to get more viewers to vote for their golden boy. I'm sure Ryan Seacrest won't mind either. David is probably the only contestant left that makes Ryan look tall.
Right, I'll get my coat.....
