[xkcd] Rapture

Weird AI Moment

Okay, so I'm definitely NOT an American Idol fan, but I have to admit to the world that the one singer that I adore from the damn monster that is AI is David Archuleta. That season was the only season that I actually watched any of and it was because of him. That kid has the most beautiful voice and I think that his loss on AI was a screwjob. Honestly, David Cook was more "bankable" and controllable (DA's father liked to poke his nose into his son's business on AI which got them into hot water), but Archuleta had the superior voice.

What spawned this tiny ranty-mcrant? I've got a copy of one of his latest songs - Zero Gravity - and I'm totally digging it. I mean, a lot! It's beautiful! I swear, this is the only AI contestant that I squee over and will probably stay that way for a long time.
