Why? Because no other show has wowed us with so many personalities and talents. We're thinking of the greats: Kellie Pickler, William Hung, Sanjaya Malakar, and three more we vaguely remember.
It's a proud record, readers!
This week, we've decided to look back in on the great David Archuleta, who damn near won season 7. He lost, because the vote was rigged, as usual.
But in our hearts, he won. Always follow your heart, readers.
David's first post-"Idol" album hit #2, but the next, The Other Side of Down, only made it to #13. Our video this week, "Something 'Bout Love," is from the second LP. As a single, it didn't crack the Top 100. His 2012 LP, Begin, debuted at #28, but, ominously, that was it.
Will "Archie" manage to get his once-promising career back on track? Probably not for awhile: he entered the Provo, Utah Missionary Training Center in March and announced that he'd be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Reportedly, he's been assigned to Chile.
Well, Chile today, hot tamale, right, readers? Please join us in wishing young David all the best down in South America, and please enjoy this week's video and captions, too.
