During his run on AI, people would scoff at the thought of David doing Apologize – until that infamous duet with One Republic on finale results nite. Archangels will remember THE STRUT, while detractors have to admit that he CAN be current!

But while he hardly tackled the ‘falsetto’ for that AI performance, it was pure perfection during the AI Tour – one of the faves of ‘non-fans’ …. and for us fans, it brought about the invention of the term ‘hunkerdown’!

David relived Apologize for the recent summer tour – going acoustic with new intensity, and probably a deeper ‘bonding’ with the song.

A little shaky here, accompanying himself for the first time…

Pick Of The Day

Apologise – the one Idol performance that showed us a glimpse of what’s in store for David Archuleta in today’s contemporary music scene as he completed Season 7 – his unique brand of soulful pop was totally infused in the ‘duet of the night’ with One Republic. It went on to become a favourite David cover for non-fans, and justified he was current enough to ‘make it’ in the real world. Apologise aptly marked the end of the Idol chapter for David, and the start of a very remarkable career indeed! And… which David fan could forget that infamous ‘strut’ across the stage lol?
