David Archuleta updated fans on his blog at his official web site on Thursday (March 12), while in Texas on tour with Lesley Roy. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up talked about the new crop of singers on season eight, writing:
I was able to watch ‘American Idol’ since we have tivo on the bus! I am really impressed with the people they have this season. Some of the performances that stood out to me were Adam Lambert’s and Danny Gokey’s performances. I also really liked Matt Giraud’s performance. There were honestly a lot of good ones haha. Allison Iraheta blew me away with her voice. I can’t believe she’s only 16! I’m really looking forward to what else she is going to do. Then Alexis Grace’s performance of Dirty Diana I thought was really cool too, even if Simon said it was a little too much. I liked how you could tell she was really getting into it.
