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! Screen Shot 2017-02-10 at 11.22.06 PM *  *  *  *  *

Fun Finds 

You Are My Song 

We love when David’s music is used for anything!

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!

    good morning guys!

    still no David.. hmm he is uber quiet 😉

    Kalei thanks for the new post.. American Idol coming back all for it if it means David will sing on TV again.

    traveling home today wishing you all the best weekend!!

  2. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone!
    Wishing y’all a SUPER, DUPER, FABULOUS SATURDAY!!! 😀

    Hey Kim! I agree, if it means seeing David sing on TV, I’m all for it.
    He could be a judge, a mentor, but definitely perform 😀

    Gotta go, have tons to get done today, will keep an eye on comments
    here & on twitter for any Music news. He’s so quiet, probably one of
    his self-imposed media get-a-ways and working hard to get ready for
    the new song & album 😀

    Take Care All, TTYL! 😀

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello! Sounds like you have a busy day planned! Hope it goes GREAT! HOPE this is the quiet before David’s NEW music hits!

      • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

        Waving back at ya! 😀 Yup, did laundry this
        morning, went out to eat w/my Mom, Bro & Sis n law,
        went shopping, had my taxes done & got a car wash, whew!
        Now, more laundry. Do you know how much laundry I
        have to do to keep the Fine Feathered Fellows consistently
        stylin’ in Plaid 🙄 😀

  3. Good morning Kim, Beth & Kalei!!
    Yep!!! Its a SUPER DUPER quiet kinda day, but after the calm comes the storm!!
    I’m hanging on for dear life because i know the new music will blow us away!!!
    Hey Kalei, nice post Thank you for sharing those 2 video’s!!
    Safe travels Kim!!!
    I’m off to do chores! Sad face here!!!!

  4. VaBeachJudy says:

    Waving hello guys! Have a SUPER Saturday! 🙂

    Thank you Kalei for the Sunshine Saturday post! GREAT pics and vids….and ArchuNews! Hope the NEXT ArcbuNews is the SINGLE RELEASE! 🙂

    ENJOY your day! 🙂 Off to work for me!

  5. Hi! Judy, this waiting is getting to be a natural feeling now, but good things come to those who wait….. RIGHT????
    Have a nice day!

  6. Mango Judy says:

    I’m thinking David might be waiting until Nathan’s album release has run its course before he releases his song. I’m sure David wouldn’t want to sidetrack Nathan’s album…and they do have a lot of the same fans. Just a thought.

  7. Kalei says:

    Hi Everyone!

    Hope you’re all enjoying a wonderful weekend! Eagle eyed fans spotted an error which I just corrected – the original judging panel was Simon, Randy & Paula! Many people mentioned Jlo, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. as well.

    Would love if David would reconnect with Idol to promote his new album – many past contestants get promo from Idol tweeting updates about their music – hope it’s the same for David!

  8. Alwaysafan says:

    We did get a sighting on Monday, sort of, his lunch with Melinda and Kris, so we got to at least see a pic of him;)

  9. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    back from visiting my son.. was fun Chapel Hill is a great place UNC is a great school I feel better now visiting him he is doing ok and for that I am happy!

    could be about Nathan.. isn’t Nathan’s CD a religious one not sure haven’t listened to any of it. so is David putting out religious music with this new CD did I miss something? ha sorry guess I am not up on things.

    so American Idol might be back on NBC that is different ok by me not many shows I watch on TV anymore might watch it if so.

    have a great day guys I think the Grammys are on tonight will probably watch lol even if it is political have a feeling Ed or somebody good might perform so will go for it.

    • Alwaysafan says:

      Nathan’s album is on the religious side, but Davids will be a pop album I believe he has said. I think that they meant that since Nathan just released his album, that David might wait a week or so before releasing his single. It’s just guess of course, hopefully we’ll hear from him this week:)

      • Grammyj says:

        Yes, David has stated that his upcoming album is a pop album. Gina is also Nathan’s manager so I agree that David is probably waiting until Nathan is done with his album promo. My guess is David’s single will come out the end of the month, but who knows. He is obviously on another social media break. Maybe he is planning something special for his traveling companion for Valentine’s Day lol.

      • kimk says:

        oh that makes sense don’t follow Gina any longer does she promote support Nathan all that much online.. not sure she did with David that I recall except an occasional RT etc.. or are you talking about going around with him doing things you do when new music drops?
        Kari could do whatever is needed for David anyway I think she is one great pal/tour manager.

        • Seven7Swans says:

          Wowza. I didn’t know NP had signed on with Gina Orr. That explains the VIPs, the weird back-to-back facebook chats — and more.

  10. kimk says:

    #7 on Trending
    Michael Bublé – I Believe in You [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]


    went to look for new music this was trending.. romantic nice video Derek Hough is in it lol should I say more? 😉 nice video!
    Michael’s son has cancer think he is doing ok from what I read.. hope they beat it.

  11. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! HAPPY Sunday! ENJOY! 🙂

  12. kimk says:

    Judy hey good morning!!

    all makes sense.. sure something will pop up soon enough
    social media is kind of crazy right now don’t blame folks for avoiding it right now
    my drive to NC and back was about 8 hours long listened to hits1 the whole way lively tunes kept me awake.. lots of gossip they added with the songs. seems Ed Sheeran is ready for marriage and Adele might be having baby #2!!

  13. kimk says:

    don’t think Say Me or I’m Ready is religious why I asked would imagine they would be on the CD like them both!

  14. kimk says:

    just checked who is performing at The Grammys.. think Adele and Lukas Graham is.. will watch for sure.. Carrie and Keith too 🙂 lol will bite the bullet rofl bet anything it will be a doosey kind of night.

  15. kimk says:

    watched a video of Ed Sheeran singing Shape Of You on SNL last night.. know what I love the song the video Ed seems really good would go see him in concert but know what.. I think David is better live. just saying.. this is the video I saw.. nothing against Ed at all just saying yeah I know David wants to be on the down low but dang really here this is all hard.

    • sydnie says:

      Kimk, he seems like a good guy I have not problem with him but I just don’t get his music at all! His massive popularity mystifies me lol it’s all good tho everyone’s different! Enjoy the Grammy, I have adult add & can’t sit thru any award shows lol. 😀

  16. sydnie says:

    David new album:
    Numb, the cason Cooley one w/the cool Instagram snippet, I’m ready, say me, rap song w/Jamesthemormom, upbeat ones similiar to zero gravity, inspirational ballads & bunch of love songs! Haha totally unsubstantiated, just have a few minutes to ramble & speculate lol before my hair appt! 😀

  17. kimk says:

    sydnie ha adult add.. usually I like all the hoopla really enjoyed the Super Bowl so going for this too. I really love music besides will def go for the smack down on twitter probs will have a blast with it all.
    yeah about the songs was like huh why I was wondering felt kind of like apples and oranges with Nathan and David but it would make sense if Gina is too busy. but that is why I said hey let Kari do it all bet she could! she is awesome!

  18. kimk says:

    7 yeah riding on tailcoats

  19. Miss Vicki DA #2014 says:

    Happy Sunday all…..was such a warm day here in VA…kimk…glad you had a good visit with your son…..I think David has been spending some much needed time with his traveling companion……maybe he’s out shopping for rings…..Valentine’s Day would be the perfect time to pop the question……I think the new song will come out the end of the month….he does probably want Nathan’s promo to die down a little like everyone has speculated…..Miss Vicki

  20. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Just listened to David sing In Christ Alone posted above…WOW…I missed this one some how….it is just beautiful……..Miss Vicki

    • VaBeachJudy says:
