The “Next David Archuleta”?

Some people just don’t get it. I mean, David Archuleta is one of a kind.  There will never be a voice like The Voice, and there will never be a heart like his Heart, and there will never be a soul like David’s Soul.  Soul David Power!

So, imagine my surprise to find on TDC an article about the “next David Archuleta,” which is also headlined on a Hollywood gossip site

So, ladies and gentlemen, Arch Angels, I introduce you to Aaron Kelly!

(crickets chirping)

Let’s see: they both wear plaid, they both started on AI at 16, they’re both cute (except we all know David is way cuter), and they both can sing.

But I ask ya: does this Aaron Kelly even hold a candle next to our David?

Exhibit A:

He sounds good, but meh.  Where’s the soul, man? Where’s the soul??

Sorry, folks, but in case you didn’t already realize: there will never be another David Archuleta. 

And no amount of saying so will add longevity to a show that needs to pack it up and get off the air.
