‘American Idol’ remains the ‘original’ – With no major internal changes, “Idol” faces genuine competition. First, NBC unveiled a surprisingly vibrant “Idol” alternative last spring with “The Voice,” which returns Feb. 5 after the Super Bowl. Then former “Idol” judge Simon Cowell on Fox last fall launched “The X Factor,” a more aggressive singing competition with a slicker sheen. While neither matched “Idol” in ratings, they both drew a healthy audience, potentially siphoning fans away from “Idol.” – Atlanta Journal Constitution

As soon as we were introduced, he hummed “Hello Dolly” and said it’s one of his favorite songs. I got to listen to his version of “Nandito Ako.” I was pleasantly surprised that he sang it in almost perfect Pinoy diction. He is also set to record its English version, “Forever With You” (as translated by the song’s composer, Aaron Paul). – Read more at Inquirer.Net

David Archuleta talks about Josh, the character he plays in the Filipino soap opera he’s starring in.

David Archuleta puts showbiz hiatus on hold to do TV5 miniseries – Arguably one of the most popular products of the premier singing competition on US TV, David Archuleta is well-loved by Pinoys with enough followers to form several fan clubs that are major players in the most popular social-networking sites—a fact that has not been lost on him. That is why he has the most number of trips here in the country as far as AI winners and runners-up are concerned, save for those with Filipino bloods like Jasmine Trias and Thia Megia. – Read more at Business
