David Archuleta’s Dad Banned From The Show

David Archuleta's Singing Stand By MeI need to apologize on two things. First, because I haven’t done any post regarding American Idol Top 4 performance and result show last week. Second, because there’s a good chance I might not be able to write another post until next week.

My best buddy of 25 years is getting married, and he asked me to sing in his wedding reception. I’m just an amateur singer, mind you. I usually only accept such request from people who are close to me. I’m not actually a professional Wedding Singer. But I do love to sing, and considering this as doing a favor for my buddy.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. If you are curious about the title, this news is one of the most talked about stuff regarding American Idol lately. It was said that David Archuleta’s dad is being banned from the show and also the rehearsal as well. Why is that so?

It seems that when David Archuleta is performing his first song last week, which is “Stand By Me” his father made arrangements where he put lyrics from Sean Kingston’s song “Beautiful Girls”. And since the producers of the show paid the fees for every song that the contestants perform each week, the insertion of those lyrics incur an additional fee. So that to make sure nothing like this happened again, they decided to ban David’s father, Jeff Archuleta, from the show.

But that was what people said initially. I found another news lately that Jeff Archuleta is not being banned from the show. They just didn’t permit him to help his son regarding his song choice and they also didn’t permit him to help David during the rehearsal. This is because they want the show to be as fair as possible, and not because of the news that I wrote earlier. You can also visit this site to read the latest news about why Jeff Archuleta is not permitted to help his son anymore.

Anyway, tomorrow will be the American Idol Top 3 Performance Show. I really look forward to it, and I hope the contestants will give their best. Oh you might want to see a video of David Archuleta singing the US National Anthem before the ball game of Jazz vs. Lakers. I believe Syesha is also singing the national anthem at the Tampa Bay Rays. You can click on the video below to watch it.

Regarding the top 4 performances last week, I agree that David Archuleta gave the best performance of the night. Although to say that he crushed the competition might be a little too far for me. Although I guess it is because of the song choices that the other three contestants made.

David Cook’s first song is not very familiar for me and it is hard to actually enjoy the song. But I did enjoy listening to his second song. I actually liked Syesha Mercado’s first song but I don’t realy get her second song choice, although Simon apparently did. At this stage I really wish that all the contestants would give an entertaining performance, but sadly I didn’t feel entertained by Jason Castro which disappointed me, really.

He’s out of the competitions now, and he said that his inexperience is what made him lose focus during the second song which resulted in him forgetting the words. Anyway, America made the right choices for their top 3 in my opinion. I hope tomorrow’s performances will be much much better than last week. See you later then!
