Daddy Archuleta = Joe Simpson 2.0

| Filed under: American Idol

davididol.jpg

Could this be why he chocked on Tuesday night????

Our Idol fave, David Archuleta, appears to have a stage daddy just like Jess and Ash!

According to Entertainment Tonight assert that David was off his game Tuesday night because daddy, Jeff, apparently pitched a huge fit at a Monday recording session.

Sources claim "2.0" yelled at David during the session cause he wasn't happy with his son's singing — and even brought him to tears.

Awwwwww. How mean!

Reps for American Idol had no comment on the incident.

Don't mess with our David!!!

    I hope that isn't true. The singers are under enough pressure without having anyone adding to it. His dad should be his biggest supporter, not a jerk.

    Dad's always end up getting too riled up when their kid(s) is/are talented at something. My dad used to bring my little brother to tears after Soccer and Basketball games all the time.

  27. denise says – reply to this


    27

    aww poor thing. i feel sorry for him as he seems to be very childlike as a result of an overbearing stage dad. he needs to pull a Macaulay Culkin and divorce his dad until the show’s over if that’s true.

    He's the most talented one out of the bunch this turn. Leave him alone Daddy and let David's nature gift shine thru!

  39. Been there says – reply to this


    39

    I am sure that's the reason. I've seen people down that path (overbearing parents and all) and I recognise the body language of someone being used as a puppett. It's the scary twinkle in his eye, the shifty body language that screams 'Don't hit me pop'. This guy will need to break away from his parents when he'll be a little bit older. Also, the selection of his songs so comes from frustrated daddy. Set David free! This kid has been performing like a monkey since the age of 10!

    How sad . . . aww . . . Now I feel so bad for him. It's not fair when parents push their kids so much. Imagen if he doesn't win? Dang, his papa is gonna kill him or something. He's gonna be like, "You we're cute enough! Blush more!" Dang . . . poor David, this breaks my heart because he's so talented and if his parents do this to him he might end up on the same road as all the other stars. He might turn to drugs or alcohol. Oh no! My prayers are with you David.

    David is still my favorite!! Hope his dad freaking backs off…..ass!! Leave him alone!

  47. bruce says – reply to this


    47

    I think it's all made up and done on purpose. e.g make the young boy looks like he comes from poverty with the father wearing a "old baseball cap" at every performance, make up a story that he "looses" his voice earlier in his career, ever get laryngitis? Make him 'forget" his lines on performance night. When asked why he didn't sing the first lines of the Beatles song earlier, he mentions words to the effect, "It didn't speak to me" Baloney, his team of voice coaches did that on a song he was VERY well practiced on! I personally don't buy any of it……………….

  48. NexusIM says – reply to this


    48

    I'll adopt him, then we will both be singing!

  49. Ast says – reply to this


    49

    Doesn't surprise me one bit. Show biz parents can be way too extreme. And David's alluded to having a singing career since an early age and this is his big break. So full on show biz parent freak out is no surprise.
    Hopefully, as a result of this public humiliation, dad will cool down with the pressure and find a way to enjoy this experience with his son, instead of making it even more stressful.

  50. you are so dumb says – reply to this


    50

    since when has joe simpson ever yelled or abused his daughters? never! all ive heard him do is do everything he could for them and support their pursuits even if they weren't talented. shit, my dad abused me and told me i stunk at singing and even refused to take me to a competition or choir practices. so your comparison is just..plain dumb.
    i feel sorry for david but he seems fake anyways.

  51. Jane says – reply to this


    51

    He probably got a beating for his perfomance last night!
    He sucked and I didn't like him in the first place but I was really put off by the fact that he wasn't a Beatles fan and decided he'd do a Stevie Wonder cover of a Beatles song.

  52. Bitches says – reply to this


    52

    Ok, Perez…it is spelled 'choked' not 'chocked', but I will let you slide this time since most of the people leaving comments on this site don't have over a 2.6 Grade Point Level nor over a 60 Intelligence Quotient Rating.
    Hahaha! "Joe Simpson 2.0". You are so funny Perez!

    thats horrible david seems so sweet

    He forgot the lyrics at least 4 times. It looked like he didn't rehearse enough. I hope his Dad isn't like Papa Joe. He looked like a little boy last night especially after following Michael Johns.

  55. Danny Noriega says – reply to this


    55

    If Daddy Archuleta wanted his son to have a recording career, he would have taught him some Beatles songs! I'm not supporting him going off on his kid, but even David admitted in his taped segment that he's not too familiar with their stuff. Come on, it's the Beatles! But I hope his dad lays off — no one deserves that.

  56. Hello Kitty says – reply to this


    56

    If this is ture.. what a fuckin prick !

    As if being on AI is not stressful enough ! David is really nice and has a lovely voice, so Stage dad should just back the fuck off of him !

    our local station here in utah ran a story on him last night..the poor kid has strep throat too..another parent trying to jump on the money train

  58. ChrisJ says – reply to this


    58

    I have an uneasy feeling that David might be gone tonite. He is clearly the most talented, but he was really terrible last nite. Why is he in a recording studio with his father in the first place? Perhaps he should have spent time learning his song instead. Sounds like his dad will be to blame if he is gone tonite.

    Ultimate stage parent is Lynne Spears.. she had the ultimate control when it came to her daughter.. to the point it drove the little girl mad as a woman.. YET, Perez seem to love Brit's family.. Almost makes me think that Brit's fan don't really care about Brit herself, only the image they have of her.. ..Ultimate stage family the Spears..

    Re: Bitches
    Yeah, Dear Perez always has a lot of grammer and spelling mistakes, it's part of his appeal. Just because you pointed that out doesn't mean you're the only one who knows how to spell it correctly.

  61. WTF says – reply to this

    IF THIS IS TRUE, HE'S A FUCKING JERK OFF. ANY PARENT SHOULD BE PROUD OF HAVING SUCH A SWEET KID. I LOVE THIS KID AND I VOTED FOR HIM. THAT ASSHOLE BETTER NOT RUIN THIS KID.

    Aww, that breaks my heart! I love David, and I think he's extremely talented and has a lot of potential. He's got a wise soul, and a great outlook and I hope that Daddy doesn't ruin that for him.

    he is so sweet, i voted for him like 50 times.

  66. Carol says – reply to this


    66

    So what if he forgets a few words? Lol. You crack me up. Tough to sing if you can't remember the words.

    Clearly this little king of tweendom will not go home. I doubt he'd go home if he sang in the wrong key. Who cares if singers are on pitch?

    Nope, I think Kristy Lee will go and frankly I'd rather see her booted than the little squirt. She butchered '8 Days a Week.'

    I would hate to see what his dad would have to say to him after that performance.
    And sorry Perez but he is MY David!

    GO DAVID ARCHULETA

    Good God! That boy is HOT as hell with a voice to match. If you can't see that, go get a good pair of glasses people.

    Personally, I don't believe it. I think he's been sick with strep this week, and it wore him down. Add to that all the pressure of the media calling him the front runner SO soon, and you get a very nervous kid who screwed up.

    COME BACK STRONG NEXT WEEK BABY!!!!

    He probably wants to beat the shit outta the poor kid but then his potential meal ticket would have to leave the show. Poor David. They should send the father packing.

    Ok, this guy is the perfect American Idol. Like simon said: Young, good looking, and can actually sing. Hes 17- do you remember when YOU were 17? Im actually kinda ok with him having a rough night- 1) he's only human, 2) he's used up his 'bad night', 3) he's gunna pick songs he's more comfortable with…4) he'll put more into it. :) he's a great little guy, and it sucks his dads an idiot whos pushin up so hard..although it could be a bunch of bullshit, and his dad could be a saint. he's not gunna loose… winning the title or not- he'll get out there… WE LOVE YOU BRITNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Give me a break. This kid isn't fake. I read an article about everyone at his school talking about how shy he is and how he giggles because of it. It's not his fault that his dad has taken advantage of an obvious talent. Remember your teenage years? Were you responsible for your parents actions? I had a jerk for a dad, too. I just pray that little David can hold on for another 2 years and then leave his sorry ass behind in the dust.

    Somone should be checking David over. A kid from his old Star Search days claims on another forum that Papa Archuleta was caught slapping young David backstage after a less than stellar performance. Producers were suitably alarmed.

  89. trinag says – reply to this


    89

    It figures. The kid is only 17, still in school and having to do schoolwork and homework each day, and a finalist on a TV show, yet that's not good enough for his father. I hope the dad gets banned from the set like he got banned from Star Search. Sounds like he's looking for a meal ticket.

    Re: Bitches – Fuck you bitch, I'm clocking 75 on the IQ. That's a whole lik ten more than wat you siad.

    I really don't care for David A., but if this story is true, somebody needs to take 2.0 out back and fuck him up. Even if the boy's almost 17 it still isn't right (and you can bet it's been going on a lot longer if it's happening now).

    Perez, hon. Breathe, review, then post or at least find a cheap slut who can proofread and edit for you in exchange for a little fame-whoring. This post is a mess… "chocked" "According to Entertainment Tonight assert"

    99

    this kid needs to go home….he's too young to handle this kinda pressure and he's proving that with all the screw-ups last night. I also think Ramy should go…Her obvious song to Danny, who was booted last week is gonna be what drags her out of the running. That and shes so young. I'm thinking maybe Brooke and David Cook may just surprise everyone.
