Season 7 Reunion! David Cook, David Archuleta and Brooke White Dinner in Los Angeles

It’s a Season 7 Reunion! David Cook, Brooke White, David Archuleta joined David Cook’s brother, Andrew for dinner last night in Los Angeles.

The Davids are both writing and recording their next albums.  And as most of you know, Archie performed “Imagine” on the American Idol results show on Wednesday.

@thedavidcook – That just happened! #reunion http://yfrog.com/euipfj

Aw, it look like Archie might have had a little too much fun:

@davidarchie – I’m not a fan of this not being able to fall asleep thing happening tonight lol. Maybe I ate too much during dinner.

  • wellhesback

    Aw MJ thanks for having a thread for this. Not much to say except I love these guys & am happy they are relaxing and having fun together. Oh – also that David is looking really good.

  • http://www.myspace.com/rjveritas MrRJ

    Be faint my heart…..Brooke looks yummy!

  • spritely

    Aw. I love them, and they seem to love one another.

  • tierbee

    Aw, I love them – so glad the Davids were finally able to get together!

  • sanduskyday

    Season 7 will always be my favorite. That is all, sigh.

  • tierbee

    That Season 7 crew was a rather attractive bunch, lol. They all look great.

  • Valentin432

    They all look great, it’s nice that they still seem very close 2 years after their season.

  • kimk

    They looked fabulous!
    oh…and was the best season ever at Idol…
    hmm…would love a collab with the two Davids as well! Maybe one day?

  • tinawina

    Awww. They look happy. :)

  • girlygirl

    aw, cute. nice that they were able to get together.

  • ggdoorsfan

    a real cool pic of some real cool people… lol at david a and his food related tweet… he had to catch a flight out of la after this dinner or early this morning to head back to utah for an appearance on a local fox station, then he’s providing the halftime entertainment tonight for the season opener of the afl team the utah blaze. hope he gets some rest in between all this singing on tv, partying hardy w/the s7 gang, jet-setting and cd stuff, lol… the life of a pop star :wink:

    ETA – he made it back home safely!

    @DavidArchie
    Bah… It’s too early

    One thing that’s neat about getting up early is seeing the sunrise. Always really cool. But back in Utah!

  • Davidx2

    How sweet! Lucky Brooke…I would love to be the middle in a “David Sandwich” too! LOL

    Yes, Season 7 was definitely the best!

    It would be great for the David’s to maybe write a song together someday. Even a duet would be great….they’ve both been working with some of the same writers too so maybe it’s not too out of the realm of possibilities.

  • sma11ie

    Aww, too adorbs for words. My three favorite people in the world that I don’t know in real life, haha (tm Archie). DC is really married to that smurf hat these days, huh? I don’t mind it, but I also miss seeing the 15 hairs come out to play sometimes too, especially now that I approve of the cut =P.

  • Pam

    awwww what a sweet picture. Yep, this is still a very close bunch 2 years later. It’s nice to see both David’s in the same room again.

    Archie is too adorable. Andrew is a goofball. heh

  • Trina

    I love those boys. Love Brooke too but those Davids are something special. And I’m still cracking up over how they seem to have stole each others brains when they tweeted lol

    I think I need to go watch a certain Manila/A Daily Anthem video…

  • jammasta

    I really miss the S7 group, such a fine and talented group. I remember after the season ended I was bitter at Cook. Now he’s my second favorite Idol winner, just under Kris and above Kelly (a great trio of winners, btw). Love him. Not the V-neck, I don’t need to see so much chest >_>.

    Brooke was my crush that season. Nice to see her again.

    Loved David Archuleta. He was my favorite, and he’s just matured since then (well, except his hairstyle X_X)

    I love these reunions…. Hell, for some reason, I prefer a Davids reunion over Kradison reunions…. Maybe because I’ve seen the Kradison reunions a lot (which isn’t a bad thing).

  • BootStar

    Those three are solid gold. Great musicians and, more importantly, it appears they haven’t sold their souls to the Hollywood hacks.

  • 123abc456

    Thanks for the the pics MJ. They look great. It is nice to see they have remained good friends.

  • frogcooke

    I probably may have squeed when I heard they went out for dinner. I’d been wanting them to since Cookie tweeted Archie. haha <3 And we get pics! More than one pic! <3 <3

    Haha Trina yeah, cracks me up too.

  • LK10

    Haha (tm Archie- I like that smallie). Too adorable for words. Glad they are good friends!

  • standtotheright

    Sometimes I forget how gorgeous Brooke White is. And her new video is kind of adorable.

    Glad they had so much fun. And I like the idea that Cook and Archie were trying to write texts like each other even more than the idea that they switched phones. Although either is adorable.

    I hope Mr. Archuleta has a good performance today.

  • ohnonotagain

    2 Davids together, how cool. I love how they still care about one another. Cookie, lose the cap, like the new haircut and you look so thin ! S7 was the best ….

  • ggdoorsfan

    I hope Mr. Archuleta has a good performance today.

    thanks for that – we do too, and hope to see some nice videos and tweets from the halftime show… we have missed hearing him sing live, so we’re excited :wink:

  • Keel

    Aww, I’m glad to see that two years out these guys still enjoy hanging out together.

  • annabelina

    This made me sooooo happy! These three were my favorites of S7. It’s fantastic to see them together in a reunion. I will always have sentimental attachments to their season more than any other. =)

  • ladymadonna

    I think the David Sandwich photo that Brooke tweeted was my favorite – they all look relaxed and happy and lovely. I love Idol reunions of any stripe (cross-season Idol encounters are always fun) but Season 7 is my all-time favorite so this kind of thing makes me irrationally giddy. Adore them all.

    Funny tweet from someone at the restaurant last night (one of the “guncles” from Tori & Dean’s show) – seems Cook’s workouts are paying dividends up close & personal (not that we are blind to it from afar):

    @SCOUTMASTERSON:
    @thedavidcook You walked by our table. Didn’t realize you were that tall OR that ripped!

  • Trina

    Ok seriously, this?

    @thedavidcook Up and at ‘em! Just got done chatting with @mix933 and @EWMichaelSlezak. Loved it. Now… Back to bed or breakfast? Decisions, decisions

    Um I realize Slezak is probably busy still flailing but CAN WE HAZ NEWS?!?!!? Like now??

  • http://crystalfans.com/ Zsus

    :) My favorite season!! Look how tiny Brooke is! Andrew looks good. I wonder if there’s any chance he’ll ever try out for Idol, again. Any news in that regard?

  • fadetowhite

    Yup: season 7 ftw!

    Nearly all of the top 12 (KLC and Ramielle aside) were really talented and they all seemed like really good people – I still sometimes watch those awful goofy group songs, because they just seemed to be having so much fun undermining the cheese.

    Good memories and good to see them still close 2 years on.

    Oh and – yes – it is pretty fantastic that almost all of the David vs David fan angsting has completely vanished. It makes it so much easier to support Archie (in my case) or DC (from the other perspective). Archie always just comes off as a really nice and genuine person and he was great on Idol the other day.

  • unidentified

    Aw, I loved season 7. Nice that they could get together and catch up. They all have been so busy.

    Looking forward to hearing Slezak’s news too.

  • sma11ie

    one of the “guncles” from Tori & Dean’s show

    WTF is a guncle? Sorry, the WTF is not at you, obv. =P

  • rayni

    What the heck is Brooke wearing and how gorgeous is Andrew?!! I’d be all about a Cook sammich myself 0_0!

  • standtotheright

    Zsus, I believe Andrew is trying to get into entertainment hosting, and has an internship now to that end.

    Probably for the best. I can’t say I was wildly impressed with his DJing skills when I streamed his show once or twice, but he’s certainly no worse than a lot of other media types out there, and I think it’s good for him to try and find success in his own way.

    WTF is a guncle?

    I’m guessing “gay uncle.”

    so true… though they will be always linked in some way due to the idol legacy, they have and are very much still carving out their own separate musical identities – one that the music world is big enough to support and embrace, and one fans can appreciate on their own merits. both have done exceedingly well, have remained pretty grounded and it’s nice to see that in a business full of plastic and fake and phony… good times ahead for us all.

  • LCT

    I would love to have a David Sandwich too! Also, David congratulations on your performance on AI! You did us proud singing Imagine!

  • LCT

    You know why we loved this season (7) the best? Because they were humble and grounded folks AND closer to their fans!!! For that I thank you all! :)

  • spritely

    Slezak! You promised, now spill! Some possibilities:
    1. Announcement that DC will, indeed, be on IGB, either to speak or sing or both.
    2. Announcement about DCTR2 producer
    3. Announcement about new single
    4. Personal announcement to me to calm down, lol.

    With this thread alone, I think we could break the Guinness record for number of “awwws.”

  • ladymadonna

    WTF is a guncle?

    Yep, standtotheright is correct. Guncle = Gay Uncle. Scout and Bill are basically the sassy gay sidekicks on Tori & Dean’s reality show – friends of Tori’s who in the current incarnation of the show are traveling with Tori & Dean and their kids in an RV around the country. They had their commitment ceremony on the show last season and are adopting a baby.

    Don’t ask how I know these things.

  • LK10

    still sometimes watch those awful goofy group songs, because they just seemed to be having so much fun undermining the cheese.

    I loved those cheesy group songs, partly because they sang live!

    both have done exceedingly well, have remained pretty grounded and it’s nice to see that in a business full of plastic and fake and phony… good times ahead for us all.

    Well said gg. I hope they can stay grounded!

  • LK10

    BTW- David is on Good Things Utah this morning with an adorable beanie on!

  • adollarshort

    OMG!!! I love S7 and the Davids!! It will always and forever be my favorite season b/c it introduced me to the nicest, most talented, and cutest person ever…David Archuleta. Count me in as being another fan extremely happy that the D-fan wars have subsided!! Altho it did take 2 yrs or so to resolve. That WAS a difficult time indeed…

  • Trina

    I will always have the greatest respect for Archie for being one of the nicest people I think I ever saw on Idol. He handled everything following the end of the show like a classy, mature person and he’s always been a true friend to David. I can never forget how supportive and excited he was the day DCTR dropped and DC always speaks so glowingly about him.. And they’ve both done so well with their careers so with all that I’m not surprised the fanwarring has faded so much.

  • sma11ie

    Duh, guncle = gay uncle, I feel slow. Thanks guys.

    Spritely, with due respect to #1 and 4, I would be really disappointed in Slezak’s definitiong of “scoop” if we did not get #2 or #3… I may die if it’s #3, but I’m thinking it’s 2…

    2. Announcement about DCTR2 producer
    3. Announcement about new single

    Actually I was thinking yesterday how cool would be if both of them could do a duet for Idols Give Back, but Archie was invited just this week so I dont think he will be called againg for IDB…

    Lean On Me could be epic with the Davids ´ voices… ;)

  • spritely

    Smallie, I know! I think I most want to hear about the producer, because it will give rise to so much debate/angst/excitement/drama/fun. :)

    Oh, the Davids doing a duet of Lean On Me would be divine, cruzceleste. Wishful thinking ftw, lol.

  • suenigma

    cruzceleste:

    That would be so epic! Both have so much soul in their voices, although Cook has rarely had an opportunity to show it.

  • cookcricket

    I wanna add to the awwwww’s! Seriously awesome season! Love em’!

  • DarkGlamour17

    oh how I miss S7. :D S9 is a failure :(
    The Davids look so cute!

  • cookcricket

    Lean On Me could be epic with the Davids ´ voices… ;)

    Of course this would have to be on video to see their interaction with each other!! :D

  • sunny2

    Season 7 was such an amazing season, even though my faves left early, how can you not love the Davids.

  • ladymadonna

    Oh you can never go wrong with a David duet. I love how their voices sound together. Their Hero from the finale is one of my most-watched videos according to my iTunes counter. I love the harmonies and especially love watching Cook’s face as he glances over to watch Archie sing. Glowing with pride. I’m not sure I can ever see them recording together, but would love to hear them perform something for Idol or have one of them just randomly pop-up for a guest appearance at a show like Carly did for Barracuda at Morongo.

  • lifeisgood

    Loved season 7:)

  • SBC

    Does Cook has a place in LA? I hope Archie will get a place in LA and hang out more with Brook and Cook and Eman. I think he needs more support/guidance on that big leap. I think Allison moved to LA after the AI tour. I see her walk the carpet in some LA events.

  • ggdoorsfan

    a twitpic of david in the limo after his appearance on a utah morning show… the young man is getting a ride from david to tonight’s game as well, as part of the make-a-wish foundation’s program… this is just another reason he is so very special..

  • Trina

    Oh well AI Now tweeted that a new single (per team Cook) is still a couple of months away so that obviously rules out whatever the EW scoop is. I can’t say I’m shocked considering he hasn’t even hit the studio yet. If anything I hope this means they take their time and pick the best song possible.

    And yeah with all due respect to IGB because god knows Ilve loved all the coverage he’s gotten due to it, but I seriously hope the news isn’t related to that.

  • leome

    Despite all the fanwars between the Davids fans (and man, was I part of some of those) I have to say that for the past year it’s been great to see both fanbases being so friendly and respectful, for the most part. Both have really strong and vocal fanbases but interesting enough the fanwars were never the worst in the idol fandom. I think the fact that the Davids keep respecting each other and have an honest and real friendship has helped it.

    Thye’re both going to release new material this year… good luck to them and I hope they’re happy with what they’re doing.

  • data785

    Another “AWWWW” from me. Love the S7 family. I love that they’re all still good friends and are supportive of each other. Call me crazy, but I like the fact that the artists I like, seem genuinely nice folks too. Happy to see the Davids meeting up again with Brooke and Andrew. :)

    Happy that they all are very busy with their music, can’t wait for the new albums!

    ggdoorsfan – That is an adorable picture!

  • ggdoorsfan

    hi trina – we feel your pain, we do, lol… e-man just tweeted this about david’s upcoming single…

    Aww, that little boy looks like a mini Archuleta!

    I really do enjoy how twitter can make you feel like part of a moment no matter how distant you really are from it.

    I cannot wait to hear the new music from these two. I am really curious about David Archuleta’s cowrites for the next album because one of my favorites from him was the bonus track song he wrote “Falling” – his voice is so beautiful on it.

    Also, cannot wait to find out what David Cook was talking about in this new wave of interviews. I want to think it is producer news (in addition to IGB pimping :))

  • Davidx2

    Both of the Davids are such great humanitarians with their charity work and how much they care about others less fortunate. That’s why I could see them writing the next big “We Are the World” type of song together. Wouldn’t that just be awesome!

  • http://flamingnose.blogspot.com Scott

    Hehe, MJ, the Seattle Times picked up this thread: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/idolconfessions/2011567065_american_idol_random_news_note.html

    Can I just say that I love the comaradarie of Season 7 Idols. I also love that the David vs. David fanwar crap is pretty much over. I mean, as much as it will ever be over. Both Davids are successful and both are amazing talents. They have much more in common than not. Yep, I’m a diehard Cook fan, but I loved seeing Archie back on the Idol stage (even if he did look like Mr. Spock’s nephew with that haircut).

  • _nyanyanie

    havent read all the post yet. but seriously, if there was a dvd of season 7, i would totally buy it. poor me, no tivo yet in new zealand during their season. or maybe there was. i dunno.

    like i said in the headlines, i miss these guys

  • SashaB

    The Davids FTW! The press tour at the end of Season 7 was fun as was the AI tour. There was such mutual respect and affection between them. And last year’s Manilla concert was awesome.

    I like Brooke White enormously. She was my favorite female contestant on AI7, too.

    Yay for Season 7!

  • KathyH

    Love that they got together. All that was missing, for me at least, was Jason. Love him too.

    I can’t believe David A. is surviving today. I think he got two hours of sleep and today he’s at one game with the little boy from Make-A-Wish and will go to another game tonight to perform at halftime. (Or something like that.) I’d have crashed by now.

    In my perfect universe they are neighboards :D

    I do think he should get a place in LA,the price are low with the recesion, it will be a got way to invest his money… but I guess that with all that is happening whit his family he still thinks he needs to call Utah home and go and be with his siblings… if he get a place he will have the perfect excuse to not visit so often, and I do think a 19th year old young man need his family to keep him grounded … and his tweets when he is at home whit the cats, dogs and siblings are gold <3

  • maturin

    Daaaaaaviddd x2. Sorry, season 7 fangirl re-emerges. Smushes them both and Brooke, too.

    ladymadonna:”Oh you can never go wrong with a David duet. I love how their voices sound together. Their Hero from the finale is one of my most-watched videos according to my iTunes counter”

    I have a secret and totally hopeless wish for something to cause Cook and Archie to duet again. Charity event. Return to the Phillipines. Kitten stuck in a tree. Don’t care why, just want them to siiiinnngg together!

  • sma11ie

    So glad I got to enjoy Season 7, priceless memories and new fun since. Thanks David A. and David C.! :)

  • http://crystalfans.com/ Zsus

    Zsus, I believe Andrew is trying to get into entertainment hosting, and has an internship now to that end.

    That sounds smart – doing his own thing. I’m not sure the Sibling On Idol can work. There would be too many comparisons, as unfair as that would be.

    And I agree with what people have said about the entire Season 7 crew having so much fun together and getting along so well. I just never got that vibe from any other seasons’ Idols. That doesn’t mean the same kind of friendship didn’t exist. It’s just that it was SO obvious with the Season 7 group.

  • wellhesback

    There have been so many cool moments w/the Season 7 group – so many of them going to one of Cookie’s Declaration tour shows for example. And who can forget the Mavid dances, or Cook and Archie doing handstands? and then there was this silly moment

    So I’m still on my Lean On Me dream Davids duet so I have asigning them parts: (yes I’m a little bored)

    b Archie
    i Cook
    toghether

    Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
    We all have sorrow
    But if we are wise
    We know that there’s always tomorrow

    Lean on me, when you’re not strong
    And I’ll be your friend
    I’ll help you carry on
    For it won’t be long
    ‘Til I’m gonna need
    Somebody to lean on

    Please swallow your pride
    If I have things you need to borrow
    For no one can fill those of your needs
    That you don’t let show

    Lean on me, when you’re not strong
    And I’ll be your friend
    I’ll help you carry on
    For it won’t be long
    ‘Til I’m gonna need
    Somebody to lean on

    If there is a load you have to bear
    That you can’t carry
    I’m right up the road
    I’ll share your load
    If you just call me

    So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
    We all need somebody to lean on
    I just might have a problem that you’d understand
    We all need somebody to lean on

    Lean on me when you’re not strong
    And I’ll be your friend
    I’ll help you carry on

    For it won’t be long
    Till I’m gonna need
    Somebody to lean on

    Lean on me…

    They could do an arragment like this or something only with Archie’s piano, Cook’s accoustic guitar, and some percussion behind…

  • houstonrufus23

    Gotta say S7 will always have my heart. I’ve liked even loved other Idols, but I never had the emotional connection to a season like I did with S7. I can honestly say I was a fan of at least 7 to 8 of the top 10.

    And even though I was in the Arch corner, I have really come to appreciate Cook as a musician and person. And Brooke! Love her voice and personality. She is sunshine.

    S7 forever. If the group toured I’d do it all over again in a minute.

    Season 7 will always be the season that all others are compared to. The group was just a great mix of personalities and talent. The Davids finale was epic. There are so many moments from this year that any other season hasn’t even begun to top. So glad to see them still supporting each other and finding time to get together with their busy schedules. We are witnessing true friendship.

    Thanks for posting that I don’t remember if I have ever seen that but it is beautiful. I think that these guys came away from that show with all the stress with true affection for each other. It is nice to see and two years later it is still there. Great guys.

    One more thing I hope both these guys have great luck with their upcoming albums. I am a David Cook fan but I bought Archie’s album and I am looking foward to his well I guess it would be his third one.

  • offside

    I loved the Mavid pranks during the Idol tour, but all my favorite moments were the one’s that involved both Davids,my favorites being the Phantom of the Opera at the foot of the stage and the show where Archie kicks Cook to get off of his knees.
