This is not opinion, but I have someone who is close to me that thinks that David Archuletta is over rated, he thinks that he slurs his words and sometimes does not sing the songs as written, to the point where you have to wait for the chorus to know what song he is singing. I agreed with this on one of the songs that he did, but I still think he has a very nice voice. Does anyone agree with my friend who shall remain nameless to protect him from the David A fans? :)

Personally, I like David Archuletta, and could even see myself sitting at one of his Concerts enjoying listening to him. He is very good for only 17, and fun to watch. His personality is awesome as well. But I do work with someone who feels just about this same way, and wants David Cook or Carly to win. I just think it is a matter of Song choice. What people are really wanting and enjoy listening too. If it was all the same type of music out there all of the time I feel it would get boring.

I think he is very good for his age as well. I'm personally a David Cook fan as well. He brings something new and edgy to the table, I think he brilliant, different, and daring.

I like David Archuleta.. about him singing the song differently, I think he is doing it to somehow make the song that he's singing his own...which i think is a good characteristic of a rising star...in that way, he won't be compared to the original singer...

One thing you have to keep in mind is that David Archultetta is only 17. He has an amasing voice. I took voice lessons for years and when someone sings really well I can see it. He has that. It makes you stop and listen. As for singing the songs as written.... We he does sing them as written. There are many different versions of different songs. David Cook often does rocker versions of songs. They also have to arrange it to fit into 1.5 minutes. David Archuletta is just adorable. He's very charismatic and his stage presense is amasing. Even if he doesn't win American IDol there are big things ahead for him.

I love hearing David Archuletta sing myself. I think he sings wonderful myself. I don't think he slurs much at all. I belive he will make it to the final 2. I might be wrong but it sure seems that way.

I have heard that he had a medical problem as a young child and something happened that he had to relearn everything, including talking. I don't know what the medical condition was but I think that stemmed the slur problem. I am personally a David Cook fan and hope he wins, but I could see David Archuletta doing gospel songs in his future....

No I think he is very unique and can see CD sales soaring already
