Idol Revival?



According to sources with knowledge of the discussions, NBC has been pitched a revival of the long-running singing competition by producer Fremantle and is now mulling options for how to integrate the show into its programming slate. One possibility being considered: cutting NBC’s existing singing competition “The Voice” from two cycles a year to one.

Fremantle has been shopping an “Idol” revival in recent weeks, with NBC emerging as the leading candidate to become the new home of the long-running singing-competition series. Sources emphasize that talks are ongoing, and no deal is yet in place.

Would You Watch?

Twitter was buzzing with the news that American Idol might be revived on NBC, less than a year from it’s Final Finale (where we saw David for 3 seconds).  There were lots of suggestions for who should judge the show if it returns – Nostalgic fans wanted the original judging panel of Simon, Paula & Randy (JLo, Keith Urban & Harry Connick Jr. were also mentioned as faves), while others felt that new blood might be best for the show, and votes rolled in for Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Melinda Doolittle and Clay Aiken. I haven’t seen anyone suggest David Archie yet – we should get on that! Screen Shot 2017-02-10 at 11.20.56 PM If you want to throw your suggestion in the ring, tweet Michael Orland! I would love to see David back on my TV screen every week! And now they let the judges perform during the season!

NUMB Runner Up – 2016 Musiqtone Poll

This is not the result for the Pop Category voting that just closed on Friday 2/10/17 – this is the original poll when Numb was first added to the Musiqtone Poll. Since we got a late start, 2nd place is not too shabby! Hope that Numb makes it into the Final round so we can vote it to #1 :-) We’ll tweet out the result of the Pop Category poll as soon as it’s posted!

Vids From My iPhone

I was scrolling though my phone and came across two vids that I hadn’t shared yet. So I loaded them onto You Tube for everyone to enjoy! They’re taken from a distance, but the audio is great!

All’s quiet on the Archie front – seems that David has taken a vacay from social media – or he may be on an actual vacation! We’re almost half way through February, so I hope that new song is almost ready for its’ debut!

There have been no David sightings either, which is a little bit odd because people usually see him at a variety of restaurants around town! Everyone keep an eye on social media because you never know when David might casually drop his new song on us!

Pastel will be back next week with all the David news we can find!

Nunca Pense – Tuacahn Fan Lunch

I found this vid on my phone – I forgot that I recorded it because I was in such shock that David, Kari and the band came to our fan lunch – I still haven’t recovered! But I found the vid today and thought I’d share it. Now I won’t be winning an Oscar for Cinematography, but if there was an award for unbridled fan enthusiasm in the backup singer category, then we’d be a shoo in! I’m glad David seemed to enjoy our little sing-along :-)

National Pizza Day!

Celebrate with a slice of your favorite pizza! David loves pizza, and even tried his hand at making his own! So whether you like Pepperoni, Veggie or just plain cheese, go out to your favorite pizza place today and enjoy! Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 7.45.37 PM National Pizza Day is observed annually on February 9th. Whether it is thin crust, Chicago-style, deep dish or anything in between, pizza is an American favorite. Here are some interesting facts about pizza:

- Pepperoni is the most popular pizza at 36% of all pies ordered.

- Over 3 billion pizzas are sold in the USA each year. Add another 1 billion on frozen pizzas

- 17% of all US Restaurants are pizzerias.

- Antica Pizzeria, the first Pizzeria, opened in Naples, Italy, in 1738.

- Gennaro Lombardi, the first Pizzeria in the United States, opened in 1895 in New York City.

Super Bowl Half-Time: Lady Gaga!

Just in case you weren’t tuned in to the Super Bowl this past Sunday, Lady Gaga put on an amazing show! Whether you like her music or not, she delivered a highly entertaining and innovative show which included hundreds of color-changing drones that twinkled red and blue and turned into an American flag and closed out as a giant Pepsi logo (they sponsored the half-time show)

And in true Six Degrees of David fashion, of course there are pics of David with Lady Gaga! They look so young!
