David Archuleta: I Was Pretty Stinkin' Nervous

David Archuleta: I Was Pretty Stinkin' Nervous

Over the weekend, David Archuleta walked home with the Year In Music ALMA Award and he just updated his official website with his reactions to the honor and performing at the award show.

The 18-year-old singer wrote, “It was my first performance on an awards ceremony, and my first time performing on TV in Spanish! I have to say I was pretty stinkin’ nervous. It’s interesting actually because I was pretty nervous for both the US Open and the ALMA Awards. I think it’s good though because it gives you a little extra push sometimes. They make you want to do better, and also make it more memorable. So if you ever get nerves, don’t think that it’s a bad thing. They help you to keep working hard and improving yourself. I feel like when there are absolutely no feelings of being nervous, or I guess I should say there isn’t a desire to do well, you don’t motivate yourself to do your best and improve! You need to have some kind of motivation. But anyway, I had plenty of nerves over those performances.”

David continued, “I sang ‘Contigo en la Distancia,’ which is one of my favorite songs to sing so I’m really glad I got to sing it. I was so happy to be able to do it for all the Latin people too! I owe so much to the Hispanic culture since my mom and all of her family are Hispanic, and it’s definitely had a huge impact on the way I am. So I’m definitely planning on doing more in Spanish, and I hope this will allow more opportunities. So I need to thank the ALMA Awards for having come and perform, and it was really exciting to receive an award for new artist too!”

If he was nervous, I didn’t see it. Nobody is better under pressure. Not even the JB or Miley.

I glad David Archuleta is defending the right to be nervous, i never understand before all the fun the media did about him be nervous before a performance. I saw many videos of live presentations from many singers and i can tell that David handle himself very well, this kind of nervous keep the adrenalin high and the energy to deliver and excellent performance like David just did in the Alma awards show.
Like a latin speak person and lover of many singerS from latinoamerica and Espana, i can tell that if his lebel want, David can do easily the crossover to the Latin market, after all the teen, male, pop, balladeer throne is empty….and waiting for someone to take……so Go David and JIVE!

grace @ 9:37 pm on 09/21/2009

I don’t remember if I ever heard this much beautiful performance recently from any other singers. He is so gifted.

pastel @ 10:22 pm on 09/21/2009

I just always blown away by David’s openness and honesty in writing. He’s writing to his fans like he’s known them for years, like’s he’s having an honest but sometimes educational conversation. This young man is going far, because of the talented and genuine person he is.

Shelley @ 10:27 pm on 09/21/2009

David nailed it once again!! You did an awesome job David!!!

hollyre @ 10:28 pm on 09/21/2009

Well, David, you wear “nervous” very well. An outstanding performance each night. You will be attending many more award shows in the future, I have a feeling.
