Show of the Day: David Archuleta at the Grove of Anaheim
Few shows split the masses like American Idol. Millions live for the program.
As for David Archuleta, the teenager who took second place last year, well, let's just say he's young. He has a strong, much more nuanced voice than the vast majority of 18-year-old singing sensations and might some day make a mature, noteworthy pop album. For now, though, I find a song like his smash "Crush" pretty annoying. Of course, legions of young female fans, and their moms, disagree with me and will probably pack the Grove tonight.
