Giving Thumbs Up

David Archuleta finished second on the seventh season of American Idol. The adorable, talented singer suffered from vocal chord paralysis as a child.

However, the crooner also won Star Search at the age of 12, causing some to wonder if he's overqualified for American Idol. It made no difference throughout the competition, though. Fans love this guy!

Archuleta performed an awe-inspiring rendition of the classic song "Imagine" during the show's top 20 week. It made Paula Abdul cry.

Archuleta's debut album came out on November 11, 2008 and his next in September 2010. He still enjoys a loyal, enthusiastic, fan base.
