David Archuleta — “Things Are Gonna Get Better” (Live)

After he finishes his song, Nigel Lythgoe asks David what the meanest thing Simon had ever said to him during his tenure on Idol. “There was one time during Top 12 week, when I forgot the lyrics, he said, ‘To be fair, that was a mess.’” If that’s the meanest criticism you received from Simon Cowell, David, consider yourself lucky!

    He’s killing us with suspense!!! We certainly love this guy! He’s here to stay! He’s so talented, people oriented, well grounded – should I go on????

    That actually wasn’t the meanest but sometimes he couldn’t hear all of what Simon was saying. Once Simon told he was like a chihuahua trying to be a tiger. Then told him his dancing was awful after which, too softly for Simon to hear, you could see David quizzically asking “I was dancing?” hahaha

    I adore David. He did great on the telethon! And he was there the day before for setup and worked the phones during the telethon. I think Things Are Gonna Get Better is more of a midtempo but I have my fingers crossed for couple of killer ballads. I’m really looking forward to the album!!! Less than 4 weeks left to wait :)
