David Archuleta writes in his latest MySpace blog about finishing up his promo tour on the East coast. In Atlanta he spent time with extended family, but also had the opportunity to meet up with Season 7 Top 24 contestant, Alexandrea Lushington.
David and Alex competed against each other (David won) on Star Search and then resumed their friendship when they competed again on the same season of Idol. The night she was eliminated, David was in tears, and Alex ran over to the “couches of safety” to give him a big hug. I thought Alex’s “Spinning Wheel” was one of Season 7’s underrated performances.
Speaking of hanging out with Idols–David spent time backstage with Jordin Sparks, at the Boo Bash in Hartford Wednesday night…
David is currently back in LA rehearsing with his band and says that he didn’t know what to expect at first, but the band is really “awwesooomme” and right now he’s ” really pumped.”
