imagine


"i wanna just squish you, squeeze your head off and dangle you from my rear-view mirror!"

that's what paula had to say about david archuleta's latest performance. creepy? yes, a little. but did you hear this kid's rendition of john lennon's imagine on tuesday night? i did-and i quickly wiped a few tears from my eyes before stevie could tease me for it. then today gina, emilie and i watched the performance a few more times (maybe twenty?). i can't get over it-tingles! his falsetto? it floats. control? you betchya. i loved that he chose not to sing the first verse (that would have been typical). i love that he mixed it up right off the bat and i LOVED his stage presence. sixteen or seventeen and one slightly flat note the others pure perfection? forget about it-if this kid doesn't win it, you can squish me and squeeze my head off and hang it from whatever you want. and if jason yeager or that danny guy make it one more week you can just shoot me in the head now.

Yes, PLEASE get Jason Yeager off the show!! I seriously dread knowing he's going to perform!! Do love David, though!

Liz- You are such a cute mom. I love the post below. On an American Idol note. I am so happy about who went home. It was great. I watched Davids performance so many times and again today had to to watch it! Amazing

I agree. He was amazing and I thought his version was almost better than the original which never happens. I was so sad that Danny didn't get kicked off, but at least Jason Y did. What was the deal with his blond streak. So ugly.

I don't know all the guys names but the dude with the dreds has to go. Come on the music world has only enough space for one white rock star with dreds. That belongs to Mr Adam Duritz.

I do hope that this kid goes far. You have to root for the utah boy!

I just want to squish him too! He's so cute and obviously so talented. He NAILED that song, which to me is one of the most impossible songs to cover, and for that reason he should win AI.
I'm also very happy about who went home. I want to see what the Aussie can do...

Oh, Lizzy has a crush ...

I know, right? I LOVE him! Oh, he is the cutest thing, I adore that boy. And aren't you so glad Jason is gone? What the...what was he doing at the end of his song? The whole dramatic arm deal? Whatev, guy creeps me out. Glad to see him gone!

HMB is the best thing ever, right? I wish I could record it, too. Hopefully they release a little movie or something...I just love them!

I completely agree, David is the best! He's so friggin' adorable and I can't believe how charming, sincere, likable and humble one kid can be? He epitomizes it all, at least from what Fox decides to show us! And he's a Mormon! He's soo winning this thing!

Super cute post! I am right there with ya! I won't delete this Tivo'd American Idol just so I can watch him over and over...and yes, I downloaded "Imagine" from itunes...i'm pathetic!
