    I'm amazed that such a sweet, humble guy draws such harsh opinions. I adore his voice and love who he is maybe a little more.

    To those who are somehow offended that he has covered Vanessa Carlton's song and want to point out that her original is superior, David would probably say the same thing. He covers the song because HE loves it. Some of his young fans may have not heard VCs version.

    I'll add that Zero Gravity is a great song, too — more fun to see him perform live than hear recorded, but the recording is quite catchy.

    So unnecessary.

    Re: F18 – Excuse me! Have you heard Zero Gravity?



  4. 104

    original is always the best! and sometimes i think david archuleta is a homo like perez



  5. 105

    Is he out of the closet yet?



  6. 106

    THIS IS THE STUDIO VERSION????

    THE PIANO PLAYING IS HORRIBLE, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS RECORDED IN SOMEONES BATHROOM!!



  7. 107

    He has NO emotion. Original is MILES better



  8. 108

    It always sounds like he has a piece of pie in his mouth.
    This rendition sounds very amatuerish and something
    best used on a childrens low budget sesame street spinoff.



  9. 109

    it's great. i love it. bought it on itunes with zero gravity. and to the ppl that are saying why doesn't he write his own stuff, he wrote zero gravity. check it out.



  10. 110

    I have nothing aganist David, i think he is a sweet guy and all … but i just dont get the whole fascination with him. He is not great. I just dont get it. The original of this song was and is way better. He sounds like.. i dont know what he sounds like but its missing something.



  16. 116

    love him!! LOVE THIS SONG!! hes amazing and SOOO orginal!! GO ARCHIE!! I LOVE YOu!!

    Archie possesses a smooth, soaring angelic voice and he is a sweet, cute boy with a ♫musical♫ soul… need more?
    By the way, there is no evidence that he is gay. His own words indicate that he understands himself to have a straight identity. When he was interviewed by FOX and asked whether he had a girlfriend, he smiled toward the young teen girls in the audience and said ‘not yet’ and then explained that he was extremely occupied with his musical career at that point but when he was ‘ready’ he might pursue dating.

    This would be in keeping with his Mormon culture, which discourages dating in pairs until one is older. Besides, he is a sweet innocent boy, sheltered, so shy, very much involved with his music. His friends call him a music nerd. I think all this together is the reason he didn´t get involved affectively yet, which by all means do not make him a gay guy, and how could we know? He has no sex life and has never even kissed anybody, girl or guy! Leave the boy alone, give him time and space to flourish! Maybe he even discover himself as a gay guy… it would be a great acquisition for the gay community!

    For now, you can celebrate the awesomeness of Dark Lord Screamanova, the fabulous Adam Glambert, representing.

    couldnt of picked a gayer song!!! gaaaaag!! wonder if psycho dad approved??



  19. 119

    Awwww! His picture is SOOOOOOOO cute!!!



  20. 120

    I don't like it. He slows down the melody when we hear his voice, yet when he stops singing the melody is quicker



  21. 121

    This is really nice.. the kid has an excellent voice.



  22. 122

    Why is every comment thread on this site nothing but negativity?

  32. 132

    aww. he is adorable



  33. 133

    i know hes morman but does anyone think he is going to be coming out soon?



  34. 134

    Hated the original and I hate this version. It was funny hearing it on White Chicks a lot.



  35. 135

    i dont know if i like it very much. Kinda weird hearing a guy sing this song. Vanessa is definitely much better.



  36. 136

    All you haters might be interested to know that David performed at the Children Uniting Nations Gala in Washington D.C. and received two standing ovations and tears from a room full of adults. Not too many artists can boast of that achievement, and certainly not many 18-year-olds.



  37. 137

    aww, hes so cue, his version is good, but i prefer the original



  38. 138

    I Love it!!!



  39. 139

    Re: gator13 – And you base this opinion on what? I am sure that you don't even follow him or his career. Just because he is different from most of the immoral teens in the entertainment world?



  40. 140

    Re: iluvglambert – Hey you understand David Archuleta!



  41. 141

    Re: Manifan – Yes, David is such a giving person and is involved with many charitable organizations. He is always thinking of others, has such a positive attitude about life, and he is always trying to find the good in people. It would make him very sad to see some of these comments.



  42. 142

    WTH is this??? its god awful…
    original was better



  43. 143

    i absolutly love the original song! and being from england i dont really know who this lad is, but this version his brillient! his voice is fab!



  44. 144

    I actually started to tear…sick



  45. 145

    Nice… Ferras could do it better…



  46. 146

    David is not just a singer, songwriter, he is a true artist and one of the greatest, most sincere & genuine guys I have ever met. To all you haters out there, he doesn't care what you think. From your ludicris ideas that he has no talent to your fantacies that he is gay, you can say what you will. He's laughing all the way to the bank. David Archuleta is here to stay.



  47. 147

    i don't like david archuleta… he sounds like a muppet… but i really like his cover.



  48. 148

    love it! archie's amazing :)
