My Comments
Last Thursday on Astro STAR World, I watched American Idol 2008 for the very first time. I have to say...I am impressed with the contestants in this season. All of them are talented and have great voices. What makes David Archuleta different than the others is his personality. I browse through the internet to find out more about him and surprised to find out that a website has been dedicated to him. He even have a few unofficial websites and few myspace accounts created in support for him.

He's such a joy to watch... I've had "Heaven" on repeat since Thursday night on YouTube, I'm absolutely addicted to it. I don't know why but he certainly have the X factor!

What you don't know about him is that he suffered from vocal chord paralysis as a child. But the crooner also won the Junior Singer Category of Star Search at the age of 12, causing some to wonder if he's overqualified for American Idol. Some also say, he will be getting lots of sympathy votes just because of his previous vocal conditions. For me, I don't see that he's having any problems. He is my pick to win American Idol 2008 !!

It is up to America now. For me, American Idol 2008 will be something to watch out for.

What do you guys think?
