He performed “Elevator” and chatted with Wendy about Idol’s 4 erm 3 judges. “Who’s that other girl?” Lulz.

And then a little talk about girls…  Check it out after the jump.

  1. He cracks me up. LOL I know he doesnt mean to, but lol that judges thing… hahaha

    —-
    side note, i dunno if people saw it since it was in the old headlines comments really late.

    but davids video chat: http://vimeo.com/15624038

  2. OMG, the thing about the extra judge. He probably just saw four bodies there, with one blonde, and asked the question. And then had to explain that he wasn’t talking about Steven Tyler. (LOL — he could have been asking about Ryan too.) Either way, hilarious.

    Liked that version of Elevator (because we always seem to have to add disclaimers, no it isn’t my favorite song on the album but I like the way he’s performing it quite a bit.) He let loose a bit on it but still had impeccable control.

  3. lol loved David on the show! … just wish the interview was longer!!
    YES! ….loved the NY fans enthusiasm for him too!

  4. Saw the Wendy Show and enjoyed it!!! Lots of cheers and STANDING O!!!!!! yea! The long hair question ended up hilarious! He swears that he was looking @ Jennifer when he said who’s that girl because of the blond hair. (people were enjoying laughing too much @ thinking he meant Steven Tyler to care about his explanation) He’ll be on his way back to Utah to do a charity event for International Mentoing program tommorow.
    1500 showed up for his Chat last even. He was full of life and enjoying himself.

  5. Wow, David is just all kinds of awesome. His genuine quirkiness is a winner with me every time.

    Thanks for the fast post!

  6. That was too funny! Seriously though, I really think he didn’t know who JLo was b/c of the blonde hair – when I first saw pics of her surfacing, at first, I didn’t know who she was. Great performance!! As a NYer, I’m sorry I was unable to attend.

  7. Yeah– I agree. I know he had to be looking at blonde JLo. Steven Tyler has looked that way for a few years now. I wouldn’t know who he was if he had short hair.

  8. The screen shot above tells it all. lol. Wendy’s face and his pointy finger!! Steven Tyler looks like an old granny and it took time for me to figure out who that blond bombshell was!

  9. I’ve always thought David was sweet, but I wasn’t a huge fan…I am now, though!! He is genuinely adorable, and that is so refreshing. I see why his fans love him and his music so much, and I hope he does really well with this CD, which I think I’m off to i-tunes to buy now. :)

    You give me hope!!!

  11. David looked great and sounded great. He was very funny. I have been listening to see CD all day. I think that it is great music.

  12. LOL at the Wendy Williams show! Seriously.. I’ve seen a lot of promo where Seacrest looks like a judge. I don’t know it’s standing out like that to me this year. I’m sure they promo’d Idol like that in previous years.

    The UStream chat is all kinds of hilarious and tons of spontaneous singing. That was too funny when someone asked him if he could choose a name what would it be and he chose DALE. lol .. that was unexpected.

  13. got my fingers crossed that he will get more talk show appearances. he is an absolute love of a guy and i hope his album is a success. (fingers crossed again and throwing in a few prayers).

  14. As usual, David is adorable and hearing and watching him sing that song sure makes me like it more.

  15. David is sooooooooo great but I personally don’t like the song Elevator and I don’t like the way he sings it to be honest. I have never heard David struggle with a song and It sounds like he does with Elevator…..Maybe struggles is not the right word….the song is just not him. IMHO….the falsetto doesn’t sound right to me. I think I would like the song if he didn’t put the falsetto in. He does sing it live better then the studio recording and makes it really fun which is a testament to his talent IMHO. Anyway. I love David and he really can’t do wrong in my book. He is one of a kind talent. Oh and the who’s that other girl was just too priceless and adorable. Ha ha ha ha ha ha :lol: ….I have been laughing for about 15 min and still am laughing. David you are the best…..Love ya!

  16. hahaha hahah who’s that other girl ?
    anyway, Wendy looks like someone with 1/2-way done w/ plastic surgery and can’t afford the other 1/2 . vomit.

  17. David has such a great voice. And his face is finally looking like a grownup. It’s cool that he’s starting to look a little different from his Amer Idol days.

    got my fingers crossed that he will get more talk show appearances.

    I know–it’s such a bummer that he’s not been on any late night shows. The people watching the Tonight Show or Dave Letterman or Kimmel were the people who voted on AI. They don’t even know about David’s quite good album.

    Wendy looks like someone with 1/2-way done w/ plastic surgery and can’t afford the other 1/2 . vomit.

    Or a guy in drag. Those breasts look so fake–one of them is the size of David’s head.

  18. David’s strength has been, and will always be, his live performances. Elevator live is so much better, David puts so much personality into his performances. I still don’t understand why the label chose to release Something bout Love and Elevator as the lead singles. Falling Stars and The Other Side of Down are much more radio friendly.

    Call me cynical but I really question whether this hurdle of being “radio friendly” is what ensures that a song is played on radio. It may have a little to do with it but I can’t believe that there is not a ALOT more happening behind the scenes in terms of deciding what is, or is not played, and I’m not referring to payola.
