Five Reasons Archuleta Blew It Last Night

Some say it was Little David’s race to lose, and lose he did. Guess the cherub persona doesn’t have the same clout it once did. Damn, this country is getting nasty. Some people have a few theories as to what went wrong for the wee one. Here are five.
1. He Was the New England PatriotsMore than 97.5 million people tuned in to watch Super Bowl XLII, which featured the undefeated, incredibly hyped (and heavily favored) Patriots take on the New York Giants. And of that audience, do you think more people wanted to see the Pats win and secure their rightful place in history, or lose epically, in a big, bursting ball of flames? Basically, ever since February, when he took a seat behind the big black piano and belted out a version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” Archuleta was the “Idol” version of the Patriots: constantly hyped, shoved down everyone’s throats and crowned long before the season was over. Also like the Patriots, none of this was really Arch’s fault. Still, the damage was done. America hates a front-runner, which is why there was much rejoicing when the Giants upset the Patriots, and why, in the end, 12 million more people decided to cast their vote for David Cook.
Check the rest, and some Archuleta roots footage, after the jump.
2. He Was IncongruousDavid Archuleta mid-note? Graceful, skilled, soulful and powerful. David Archuleta mid-conversation? Gawking, stammering, awkward and goofy. In the history of “Idol,” there has perhaps been no other contestant who displayed such a disparity between the personal and the professional, and in the end, that cost him. We all loved Archuleta the performer, but after his 47th “aw, shucks” interview (highlighting his bizarre breathing pattern), we were ready to show Archuleta the person the door. This is basically the same thing that did in Melinda Doolittle last season.
3. He Was Al GoreOr, more specifically, his supporters were Florida Democrats. During the 2000 election, all five major networks called the state of Florida for Democratic candidate Al Gore at 7 p.m. EST, despite the fact that the panhandle of the state actually falls in the Central time zone, meaning that polls there would remain open for another hour. Theoretically, the fact that Gore was the presumed winner could’ve discouraged Democrats in the panhandle from heading out to the polls, since their candidate had already carried the state. Gore ended up losing Florida by a total of 537 votes. Could Tuesday night’s “Idol” telecast — in which all three judges basically crowned Archuleta as the “Idol” champ before polls had even opened — have had the same effect? Were Archuleta fans discouraged from voting because they assumed he already had the competition in the bag?
4. He Has a Creepy Stage DadThere’s no nice way to say this: Arch’s dad gave pretty much everyone the heebie-jeebies (the goatee, the hat, the resemblance to Kevin Pollak in “The Usual Suspects”) and his constant presence — not to mention the rumors that his brazen careerism made Joan Crawford and Dina Lohan look like concerned, caring parents — ruined the whole “diamond in the rough” thing for his son. Instead, many came to see Archuleta as a robotic singing machine that had been trained (forced?) to perform since the age of 12 (you know, when he was on “Star Search”) by his taskmaster father. And when “Idol” producers banned his father from the backstage area, well, let’s just say that didn’t help matters any.
5. He Was One-DimensionalIn the end, the biggest knock against Archuleta was that he never showed he had range outside the majestic world of balladry. His choices of songs never strayed much from tried-and-true schmaltz (Robbie Williams’ “Angels,” the Beatles’ “The Long and Winding Road,” Neil Diamond’s “America”), and when he did try to stretch things a bit, the results were disastrous, like his take on Chris Brown’s “With You.” While all this may have made him a mortal lock for the cats-and-cardigans set, it didn’t endear him much to anyone between the ages of 12 and 40. There’s a reason the show isn’t called “Adult Contemporary Idol.” - James Montgomery

Usher To Confess…To Your Questions

We all know Usher tells it like it is; on 2004’s Confessions, he filled us in on what goes on between the sheets. His latest disc, Here I Stand, which you can listen to and read about, lifts the curtain on everything from what happens at the club to Usher’s newly domesticated life. Now the R&B phenom wants to answer one of your questions. Tell us something you want to know about Usher in our comments section. We’ll pick the best, and he’ll provide a video answer.

Maybe R. Kelly Really Can Fly

Today, the prosecution continued its attempts to unravel the defense claims of mistaken identities. Yet another former friend and classmate of the alleged victim identified her as the girl in the sex tape. Aubrey Hampton, now 23, testified that she not only recognized the alleged victim’s face, but also her mannerisms, including “the way she licked her bottom lip.” She also fingered the man in the tape as R. Kelly and testified that she met him through the alleged victim.
But a strategy for undermining the prosecution’s witnesses is taking shape as the defense attempts to call into question the very authenticity of the tape itself. If successful, all testimony identifying Kelly and the alleged victim would become meaningless. Previews of this conspiracy theory surfaced during cross examination. The defense apparently contends that one of the alleged victim’s relatives is Stephanie “Sparkle” Edwards and that she released the tape (and possibly doctored it!) as part of a personal vendetta against Kelly over a music biz deal gone wrong.
The parade of witnesses with positive identifications may have a strong impact on the jury and score the prosecution more points. However, the defense will likely pose multiple questions in an attempt to plant the seed of reasonable doubt despite that testimony. What was the friend’s age at the time? How much time has passed between this testimony and the time that the friend watched the tape? How reliable is their testimony in light of the poor quality of the tape? What about the lack of any admission by the alleged victim to her friends of any inappropriate conduct with “the Pied Piper”? But most importantly, are the witnesses who believed that they were watching their former friend in a sex tape really just victims themselves of a personal vendetta? We’ll see as the evidence unfolds. Until then, I believe the defense is climbing out of the hole, and has closed the gap on its deficit from four points to one. — Mark Muro, Attorney

A Memorial Weekend Look to Avoid

A Memorial Weekend Look to Avoid

Diddy Makes Naomi Cry On Her B-Day

It’s reassuring to know that even celebrities have meltdowns, though we’re not really surprised when it’s coming from Naomi “Blackberry thrower” Campbell. The supermodel celebrated her 38th birthday in Cannes last night, and took the party onto Diddy’s yacht (wouldn’t you?) But a few hours later she emerged from the boat crying and looking well, like some crazy drunk chick we often see weeping outside of a bar at 3AM. Stars ARE just like us!Diddy and Naomi have apparently had some beef before, even though they’re also close pals. The rap mogul allegedly screamed at her last year in the middle of Jermaine Dupri’s Grammy after party. At least Naomi got to breakdown while dripping in diamonds as well as tears. Seriously, the sparkling on her wrists totally distracts from the water works in her eyes. We bet no one even noticed! [The Sun]

Mary J. Blige is Perfection

Ah, our queen. Mary J. Blige stunned last night in Cannes at the Cinema Against Aids benefit gala. Work that thing out!

Lindsay Lohan Gets Lovey with her Gal Pal

Is Lindsay Lohan finally making her alleged relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson public? The pair - who go everywhere together (except rehab) - are currently in Cannes together promoting, uh, nothing, and they were spotted looking very close and cuddly last night! Lindsay’s always been more than open about her sex life (remember her rehab boyfriend?), but she has yet to confirm the rumors that have been buzzing for a while that her and Sam are more than just good friends. These latest pics are pretty incriminating, if you assume that holding hands and nuzzling means they’re doing it. And damn, we hope it does! Hollywood is desperately in need of a new, fun couple to obsess about, and Pete and Ash and Paris and her twin aren’t cutting it. Bring on Lonson!
