But what about a vocal performer used to being the center of attention? You had to feel for American Idol runner up David Archuleta. He had just four vocal performances (including a selection from his own 2009 “Christmas From the Heart” album) and he was largely ignored like a band whose musicians are playing their hearts out at a sports bar where 30 TV screens are broadcasting the final game of the Stanley Cup.
Well, isn’t he really saying that David is better than this and should NOT be treated as background music? One fine day, David will learn this about himself too (as we fans already know this), and maybe he’ll force his management to get him better gigs.
