Name: David Archuleta
Where to see him: David broke onto the music scene after finishing in second place on American Idol. His first album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 and now his second album, The Other Side of Down, is scheduled to be released on October 5.
Why we love him: He first caught our eye singing on the AI stage and now he's got girls all over the world swooning! His soulful sound and sweet personality are what makes him one of our favorites. Plus, he's super dedicated to giving back to the community and does tons of charity work. What more could a girl ask for?
He talks about... an embarrassing moment on stage: "I was to sing at this charity event dinner thing and I lost my voice that night and in the middle of the song I was struggling so bad and I just completely lost it. My mom came up and ran up and just grabbed the mike from me and finished the song for me and I was just like, 'I want to die.' I was so glad my mom was there!"
Now we want to hear from YOU, J-14ers! Do you think David is HOT or NOT? Let us know in the comments below!
