From the very beginning of this year’s “American Idol,” David Archuleta has been a shining star. Only 17 years old, and with such presence on stage! Such a voice! So cute! He seemed fated to be the winner.
Now, weeks into the competition, I’m not quite as sure. He certainly is talented – there’s no doubt about that. He is incredibly confident on stage. And he’s a clean-cut teen who seems tailor-made for a pop idol career.
