David Archuleta learns to embrace his inner dork
David Archuleta had a dream last week that really spooked him. He was singing at an outdoor event when, suddenly, the entire audience got up during the middle of his performance and walked out.
“It didn’t look like they hated it, or that I did something, ” the 19-year-old singer recalls. “It just freaked me out. It was one of the creepiest dreams I’ve had. The fact that everyone left: Was I making any kind of impact on anyone?”

‘America’s Got Talent’ breaks from canned idols
Here’s something you’ll never see in a hundred thousand years on the “American Idol” traveling concert tour: a contestant ad-libbing his thoughts about the recent tragedy involving a gay Rutgers University student’s suicide.
“America’s Got Talent Live” arrived at the not-quite-sold out Paramount Theatre in Oakland on Friday, with none of the confetti-shooting cannons, household names or even a backing band. (The singers were basically doing karaoke.)
But there was a looseness to the production that was a nice break from the canned performances that usually come when reality TV talent shows hit the road. The eclectic lineup also included ballroom dancers, a magician and the black-light performance group Fighting Gravity.

Susan Boyle — Screw ‘Talent’, I’m Going ‘Dancing’
Not everyone in the U.S. hates Susan Boyle — TMZ has learned the singer will return to The States to perform on “Dancing with the Stars” … just weeks after she left “America’s Got Talent” in tears.
Sources tell us Boyle is scheduled to perform on Tuesday’s live show — and unlike her experience on “Talent” … we’re guessing she’ll make “Dancing” producers clear the song she wants to sing — “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen — before she touches down on American soil.

Carrie Ann Inaba: My Fellow DWTS Judges Are ‘Crazy’ and ‘Stodgy’
It’s hard to ignore Bruno Tonioli’s outrageous one-liners, his sometimes overly harsh comments and his animated gestures on Dancing with the Stars.
Especially if you’re sharing the judges’ table with him.
Asked to describe her colleagues in one word, Carrie Ann Inaba doesn’t hesitate to classify Tonioli as “crazy.”

‘Dancing With the Stars’: Derek Hough on week 3’s ‘Story Night, ‘ Bruno vs. Bolton, and why people assume hot male dancers are gay
Do you agree with judge-under-fire Bruno Tonioli that Michael Bolton’s jive was the worst jive in 11 seasons? Whose might have been worse?
To tell someone that something they’ve spent hours trying to learn is the worst they’ve seen is a harsh critique to have to make. Luckily, I am not hired on this show as a judge.
This week is STORY WEEK. Can you give three hints about your samba story?
We have a great ’80s song everyone will know. Three hints for the story: bowtie, ruler, and apple.
From reader Ellie Mae: “Do you ever get tired of the judges kissing your ass and the show favoring you all the time?”
If only that were the case, then I wouldn’t have to work so hard at my job. Glad to know that it all comes across so effortlessly on screen though.

Lacey Schwimmer: I see myself like a vaudeville performer
Lacey Schwimmer’s been tearing up the floor since she made the finals on season three of “So You Think You Can Dance” and while she’s currently keeping everyone on their toes while “Dancing with the Stars, ” her ultimate goal is to get America on their feet — as a singer.
The first step towards wearing that triple threat crown is as a featured vocalist on the new Cash Cash track, “Red Cup” — an ode to college consumption. I chatted with Lacey about her musical stylings, what her “DWTS” fans can expect from her routine with Kyle Massey tonight and who — or what — she sees as their biggest blockade to taking home the disco ball trophy.
PW: What can fans expect tonight?
Lacey: This is story week. We have the waltz so it’s very slow and romantic which is hard because Kyle and I are kinda hyper. Also we don’t have that much of a romantic connection. He wishes he had one with me [laughs]. It’s going to be totally opposite of what we’ve done on the show, which is a good thing. I think Kyle will show that he has depth to his dance and can adapt. If he gets the steps and technique right, people will see a softer side.
