David Archuleta won his ticket to the Hollywood final auditions at the
tryouts held at Qualcomm Stadium - July 30 & July 31, 2007. He was still only sixteen during the
auditions and, along with other contestants not yet 18, will have to go to school ("doing schoolwork in the morning and then come onto the stage and then go back to the schoolwork") while a part of American Idol's seventh season. His parents are also on hand, likely because he's a minor.
David Archuleta is considered to be one of the front-runners for his series of exceptional performances. After his rousing rendition of "Imagine" (arrangement influenced by Eva Cassidy) during the week of the top 20, all three judges praised his abilities with judge Paula Abdul citing it as one of the most "moving performances [she had] ever heard", and judge Simon Cowell adding that David Archuleta was the "one to beat." Entertainment Weekly critic Michael Slezak stated that David Archuleta "[has] shown more star quality and stage presence in two weeks of performances than all the other male contestants combined."
On Wednesday, March 5, 2008, David Archulta's single featuring his rendition of "Imagine" reached #1 on the iTunes album chart, while his rendition of "Shop Around" charted at #8
