You still hold the key….
Love this pic, which is pretty much in focus, but the angle of his head and the eye crinkles as he laughs – it’s just so David. Love the bracelets for various causes, the ring, rolled up sleeves and the vest!

He’s Coming to Save the Day
Well, if Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly has his way, David would be part of a grand plan to save the ailing Idol franchise from doom. In one of those David Archuleta “Six degrees of separation” moments, I was reading an article in Entertainment Weekly – the one featuring Bruno Mars on the cover:
And there were a few articles about American Idol – discussing the falling ratings for Season 12, the conspiracy theory “manipulation” by the powers that be to ensure the winner was a girl this season and the overall downhill slide of Idol from the reigning King of Reality TV to its current status of “Keeping Up With The Voice”. Even though I have lost interest in anything Idol post-Season 7, I’m still magnetically drawn to read all articles and watch every news tidbit about Idol in the unlikely chance that there will be some tiny mention of David – and this time, I was rewarded!
In a nutshell, Mr Ross suggests taking a page from the Survivor revival book – featuring past contestants from the “Glory Days” of Idol and giving them another shot at the crown! The twist is that there would be 6 or so contestants selected the traditional way, via auditions, so the viewing public could still get their “She bangs, she bangs” and bikini girl moments, because that’s what the viewing public wants – contestants making fools of themselves. However, the 6 chosen ones would get the surprise of their lives when they find out they are competing against fantastic finalists from previous seasons! We could once again feel the thrill of voting madly for 2 hours – and this time we could change history with our well-practiced voting fingers!
It’s a bit gimmicky and smacks a little of desperation, but if it means we would get to watch David sing weekly on tv again, well…. WE’LL TAKE IT!
I doubt that David would ever agree to such a proposition, but we can dream, and hope and pray that someday we’ll once again be able to tune in weekly to watch David sing his heart out for a tv audience of millions – the world deserves that…. and so does he.

It’s All a Blur!
A huge thank you to everyone who has participated in our fun, lighthearted competition to find the best of the best of the Blurs! The week has flown by and we’ve been showered with memories of concerts past via the unfocused lenses of fanatic fans turned amateur photographers. Matt Clayton we ain’t! But the mere fact that we have saved every one of our pics of David, no matter how blurry (that was an album title reject btw), speaks to our desire to capture these precious memories and hold them close to our hearts. These shaky, unfocused, poorly lit, awkwardly angled photos are proof positive that We.Were.There!
We were in close enough proximity to hear David singing live and we managed to keep our composure long enough to click that button, so years later as we wait (im)patiently for 2014 to roll around, we can scroll through our collection of photos and remember why we are waiting, and why it’s so worth it.
We got so many submissions that we aren’t able to post all of them, but we’ve selected a good representation of pics for you to vote on so you, the fans, can choose the Best Blur of them all! We’ll have a poll in the Saturday post and voting will be open through Sunday. The winning photo will grace the Monday post in the coveted position of Lead Pic!
Myheartsong (Robin) sent in 2 lovely entries from Fort Wayne:
Archugeezer took this blurry blue gem, apparently from the front row!
Carmelita captured David reaching out to touch fans’ hands!
Zelle caught the wave at the Bench premier!
Remember Shorts-gate? These pics caused a blur stir because David was wearing shorts! Thanks to Jeff R for sharing!
Cindy sent in 2 blurtastic pics of David in action!
Angelbymyside captured 2 more David/Demi Tour pics!
Miss Bianca submitted this beauty – love the sparkly rainbow effect of the sparkly suit!
And last but not least, LSCtheLiverLady (Linda) managed to only get David’s shoes in the pic – but they’re great shoes!
What a great collection of not-quite-focused pics! Thanks for sharing!
