David Archuleta Makes Paula Abdul Cry

by at . Comments

It doesn't take much to make Paula Abdul cry. Tears flow for this American Idol judge over her assistant purchasing the wrong shampoo. Or a broken remote control. Or a poorly mixed margarita.

Last night, however, it was the performance of American Idol contestant David Archuleta that left Abdul's mascara a mess.

After the 17-year old sensation completed his rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine," Paula choked back the tears and said: "That was . . . one of the most moving performances I've ever heard. You're destined for super stardom."

Take a look. Take a listen. Let us know if you agree:



Thanks to all my fans i love each and every one of u and hope u try out my new cd ok bye!!!!!!!


I have never missed an American Idol show (even the stupid ones in the beginning) since Day 1. Although many great performances have taken place on the show, I have been completely and utterly blown away by David Archuleta this season. I am a 62 year old grandmother and have never been this crazy about a contestant EVER. I saved most of his performances and play them OVER and OVER and OVER. He is by far the greatest singer and most lovable performer ever on the show, and I don't think there will ever be another like him. Awesome, awesome, awesome. I just can't get enough of him. Shocked that he did not win, but believe he will become a superstar. Any 17 year old that can get me to cry when he sings is one special young man. Can't wait for a CD to come out. It will be the best money I'll ever spend!!


david you are the best,,,you deserve win american idole i love you david ,,you have good and wonderfull futur


I read something from a gentlemen saying that he started watching tv again just for this Kid David Archuleta. You know? that was just so moving - not the part of watching tv again of course - but his words reflected exactly what I wanted to say about this kid. He is so different and I guess he does not realize what he does to people. He is like a little angel not contaminated not jelousy, just pure and inocent talent. He loves music, he loves his life and certainly we love him sooo much. I can't even have a day without looking for any news on internet or listening him again over and over, it is like my soul needs him. he should have won but oh well, we always will be there for him, Love that kid. He is just amazing

David - You are an inspiration to young people and their parents for your sincerity, humbleness, hard work and the voice of a superstar. You take criticism better than any contestant and are truly greatful for the compliments. the world loves you and it is obvious that you love your fans. we truly need a young person to set a good example for all the young people in this world and with your voice i can only "imagine" how great that would be. god bless you and keep you and may your inspiration and wonderful voice inspire us all.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
