David Archuleta’s fans may have been disappointed that his Today Show appearance was canceled, but at least he hit up The Wendy Williams Show today to promote just-released album The Other Side Of Down. Last night Archie tweeted, “Bah, unfortunately due to schedule issues I won’t be doing the Today Show tomorrow. Sorry for the changes.” Watch the 19-year-old crooner knock out an acoustic performance of new song “Elevator” below.

Gotta love those screaming Archies after he sings! And naturally David was asked about the new American Idol judges. Then Wendy put the poor guy on the spot by asking him if he wants a girlfriend, and whether or not he’d ever date a fan.

“I’ve never been in a relationship,” the singer admitted, before joking, “I guess I wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who didn’t like my music. That would be awkward.”

After the show, Williams tweeted a photo of Archie signing autographs outside the studio.

Archuleta discussed “Elevator” on Live! With Regis And Kelly yesterday, stating that the song’s concept came to him in a dream. He also mentioned in a video blog last month that the tune was written in about 30 minutes.

What do you think of David’s acoustic rendition of the song?
