David Archuleta: American Idol Reunion

David Archuleta: American Idol Reunion

After a busy week, David Archuleta finally got a chance to pop in on his MySpace.

Check out what the 18-year-old performer had to say: “Hey guys! So I’m going to try and summarize this week since it was a pretty crazy one. We were able to look around the island of Oahu and do a lot of neat things there. We first went to the Sea Life Park and saw a dolphin show there. Then, we went to the Polynesian Cultural Center for a luau and saw the incredible show about all the different cultures of the Islands. Some other things we got to do were have shaved ice at Matsumoto’s, go to the Dole Pineapple Plantation, a macadamia nut store, and see a few beaches. we had a really really good time, and I have fallen in love with Hawaii. I want to go back soon! It’s funny because even when it was like 70 degrees, people who lived there were saying it was cold. I loved it.”

“After we left Hawaii, we went to Orlando for the premiere of the American Idol Experience at Disney World. It felt like a family reunion with so many past idol contestants. All 7 winners were there, and Melinda, Phil, Lakisha, Sanjaya, Brooke, and a bunch of other people were there too. My older sister came down for the event, and my cousins were already in that area because it was my grandma’s birthday that same day. So they got to come too! It was a reunion with the American Idol family, and my real family. The American Idol Experience was so cool too! It was freakishly similar to the real stage, and I think it’s way cool how people can get a chance to see what it’s like to be in our shoes up on stage performing or watching the show live. We got to ride the rides after doing press. Man so much to talk about! But I don’t want to make this a novel.

“This is my first time going to New Orleans. I was there to be in the Caesar Parade on Valentine’s Day, and that was way cool. I got to throw tons and tons of beads to people. The night I got there, I was able to eat dinner with Gavin Degraw and Tony Orlando, who are like two of the coolest and nicest people you could ever know. We ate at a restaurant called Impastato’s, and oh my heck! It was AMAZING! It was so good we went to eat there the next day lol. But Tony and Gavin were to performing in New Orleans too. Tony already performed that night, but Gavin was performing the next day so we went to see him perform. He was great. After him though…. I had a big surprise. We didn’t know that Sara Bareilles was going to be on after him!! I couldn’t believe that I was going to see Sara Bareilles without even planning on it or knowing she was there! It was so cool! She’s sooo good live too. I got a chance to talk to her and she was talking about how nice my fans were. So thanks to all of you guys!!”

    Haha, he’s sooooo freakin’ cute! I love his little catch phrase. “Oh, my heck!” Haha. Now, this is someone that’s a true role model. You can tell he’s a genuine person. And he definitely deserves all the success he’s getting. ♥

    Aww man. I miss living in Hawaii. Matusumoto’s was one of my favorite places. Bubbie’s is number one. I also remember going to Sea Life too, good times.

  • yuck

    a very LONG novel that is

  • jj

    Actually his blogs used to not be this long, but he noticed that his fans actually wanted to know every aspect of his life, and David loves his fans and would never disappoint them. So, every week on monday, he updates us on what has been happening in his life.

  • jj

    Oh, and I love that he is touring with McFly. Its time for the UK to get a taste of the amazingness of David.

    wow i just notice something, he is bloging every monday!!! gosh he is way cute!!! i wanna hug him!

  • grace

    I love his novel, every week!! He is so loyal to his fans. On Valentine’s Day, everyone got a phone call from him singing “I just called to say I love you. I just called to say how much I care…” by Stevie Wonder. He wished us to have a happy Valentine’s Day. Probably, not having his own girl friend is good for all of us because he gives us so much attention and love. Lov ya David!!

  • kelsye

    david my mom wants to adopt u 0_0 i love you david, please dont change.

  • Kait

    I love every single word of David’s blogs. They feel like a letter you’d send to a good friend — full of the news of the day. I guess people are forgetting about what that was like — to actually stay in touch in full-word sentences and real paragraphs.

    Hope this is something David continues.
