Worst: Don't Cry Out Loud (Finale)

Is there some reason you left off Clay Aiken's album that came out last June?? Tried and True should be included in your list at the right. If you have all these albums listed, to exclude Clay looks pretty bad.

Tsuramae!

On second though, I'll vote. Mine's losing.

I think this is bogus . there is a loophole somewhere. cause how can someone go from 3 votes to 270 votes only in 2 hours.

but no matter what the vote says. Bo Bice is the best!!! always has been always will be!!!!!!!

David fans....if you are going to spam a poll, be a little less transparent. In the last 10 minutes, David got 150 votes.....give me a break!!

This group of fans is one of the reasons most fans of other Idols refuse to play. You all have a reputation that isn't good.

I mean.....its a silly poll and you feel the need to spam it!!

David Fans Are NOT Spam, we just knew this poll Today from twitter. that is all.

Good Bless You all. - kiefsie

If it's just a silly poll (which it is)then Y R U having a heart attack???

Anonymous said...

kiefsie.....sorry.....impossible. Sure, we all knew about the poll. There is no way that you got together 150 fans to all post in the same 10 minute period. I am a number cruncher and I have been watching the numbers.

Yes, David's fans are active, and that is good, however the rest of us can all see what you are doing. AND, the polite response doesn't take away the fact that you cheat!!

if it's such a silly poll, then no one who matters will see it, or care, so what is ur point. why do you care, if the poll is so meaningless.

Anonymous said...

why do you care what david fans do, or don't do on silly polls darling. you need a life, and to worry about things that matter.

lighten up, it's a effing poll, not a national election. geesh, why do some people get their panties in a twist about these things.

So.......its OK to cheat?? Sorry.......cheating is the reason the poll is worth nothing. It would be fun and mean something if fans didn't go over the top!!

Wah, wah, wah, you want to cheese to go with you whine? And why are you inhabiting this poll? Who made you the poll police?

hahah clayfans are the biggest hypocrites alive. they like to play the meaningless poll card when he is getting his ass kicked, but still vote for his loser ass. so tacky, so so tacky.

it ain't that deep darling. gee, go get a life, or back away from the computer if this bothers you so much. gosh, it's not that serious, lololol. prozac works wonders for what's ailing you. get some.

The same person who gave you no morals....

Sorry, but cheating is cheating....

And......since you are all so defensive, it is really fun to see.

I bet David is really proud of his cheating fans!!

I'm seeing a pattern here. Season 7 is winning in every group. They were a dang likable bunch, I must say. People you really had to love, more than certain family members.

And exactly what rule was broken Miss Number Cruncher? Pray tell.

david could probably care less about this poll, like most of these other runners up. it's the obnoxious attention seeking people like u who look pathetic with this 'what would ur artist say or think' bs. hahaha, u are really funny. we need a good laugh, so keep them coming.

Anonymous said...

awwww, somebody needs some attention, or really needs to get a life hahahaha. who cares, this poll is mindless fun, it won't change anything, so who cares who may or may not be cheating. please go get a brain, a life and a clue. please.

Anonymous said...

Ha Ha Ha...this is one funny conversation!!

The only person winning this poll is the guy who set it up. He has gotten people to spam his poll and he is getting comments. He has more hits on his blog than usual.

The problem is that when spamming a poll is so "in your face" it makes people uptight.

Anonymous said...

it's a dam poll. get over it. if a stupid meaningless little poll like this, and the results from a stupid poll like this makes you angry, you are not tough enough to survive in the real world. we all know why these polls are designed, you are relaying no deep dark secrets. please, take a chill pill, lighten up, and step off with the finger wagging. it ain't that deep, it just makes you look like a fool.

No "rules" were broken. Here's a fact: During the evening (U.S. time) there is a LOT of Twitter activity for David Archuleta, due in part to all of his Asian fans. I just checked Twitter activity for "David Archuleta" and "Clay Aiken." There were 14 tweets over the course of the last hour under "Clay Aiken," and 4 of those were actually from David Archuleta fans tweeting about the poll and incorporating both names in their tweets. In contrast, there have been 141 tweets under "David Archuleta." In other words, 10 times the amount of activity in the same time period, and many of those tweets involve this poll.

don't offer this person any rational explanations. they are just looking for a reason to be an a-hole about what they themselves 1st called a stupid meaningless poll. the butthurt tone they have taken signals the opposite, but let them continue amusing us with their bs - a good laugh works wonders this time of morning hahahaha

Gosh, if u want to win your idol then vote, and spread it to the fans so they'd know. David has a lot of fans worldwide who really supports him that's why he is winning. Lets go! Go getters! Vote :)

Chris S. said...

I don't understand why everyone has to be so angry at the fact that David has the most votes. He has the most votes because they adore him internationally, and so it shows; adding arbitrary rules to peoples behavior is rather immature.

Peejay said...

wow.. its my first time to see people arguing in this blog.. let's stop the fighting people.. i really had a hard time choosing the best runner-up. i even prefer the third placers.. haha! but i ended up voting for archie coz i like his latest album. :P

Anonymous said...

If Archie is so popular how come he can't sell his album in spite of 2 singles on the radio (that flopped) and tons of high profile promotion. I don't think he has very many fans or his CD wouldn't have so totally flopped. I think he has a small handful of fans whose job it is to cheat on polls.

Anonymous said...

Tons of high profile promotion? You've got to be kidding! Except for the Fox New Year's Eve Live show, David has had very few opportunities to sing songs from his new CD to an audience outside his core fan base. Few even know he has a new CD out. David's album launched at a time when he was without professional management, and the guy responsible for overseeing it at Jive left the label at the end of last year. "The Other Side of Down" has had very little promotion except for in the Asian market, where his songs are not "flops" but are topping the charts. Yes, it is distressing to his fans that his album hasn't sold better; however, we understand that the marketplace is depressed and that only a handful of artists are doing well at this time. The good news is that David has put out a quality album for which he co-wrote 10 of the songs, and which has received very strong reviews.

Why is it that bitter fans of other Idols feels so threatened by a sweet, humble guy? Take your nasty thoughts and comments and put them away in a drawer somewhere or, better yet, just toss them away. You'll feel so much better, and you'll be a better person for it.

Just votes for David Archuleta, very talented guy.

Will said...

Wow. Idol war.

Anonymous said...

Wow this is crazy..For all of you who feel the need tp put down and critized others just because David is winning, you are really imature. If you want your idol to win then spread the word and vote. Simple as that. There is no cheating(David fans are not like that) we just love our guy so much we spread the word and we vote hard. David has A LOT of fans so think again. His ablum is far from a flop, he didn't get any promo cause he went about writting stuff he wanted not what sloppy crap the media expects to hear. It happened to Kelly Clarkson as well. There are two types of artist, the honest and the liars...honest one takes 10 x longer to hit it big but they stay the longest. Think about that one.

I voted for david :) that's all.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE DAVID ARCHULETA! Check his twitter page and see just how many fans he has there! We LOVE our guy, simple as that!

You know what? I visit certain Idol blogs on the internet, one in particular that post all kinds of the latest news on ALL Idols - and it seems like the one Idol who VLOGS to his fans the MOST is David Archuleta - and I mean LONG Vlogs, where he talks to us just like we were actually his FRIENDS! Imagine that! So if you non-fans are wondering why we LOVE HIM SO MUCH - that right there is only ONE of the reasons! We Archies are SOOOOOO spoiled! And we're lovin' every minute of it! :)

We love David! woot! woot! :)))))

I don't understand what is so much if 150 people vote for their fave in the same time? Why it's not possible. What people mean with cheating the vote? Can we vote more than one time a day?

Anonymous said...

They don't understand how MANY of us there are! ha! All we need to do is advertise the concert on his MANY fansites! No problem!

Oops! I meant "contest" not "concert" -
but I'm so HOPING for a concert! ha! and a TOUR! coming soon, I hope!

I am a fan of David Archuleta. I read comments on the many sites that support him and that is how I found out about the poll. I feel that many of the previous finalists are talented but in my heart and mind David Archuleta is the best. David has a very loyal fan base, young and old, and he is very much involved in seeing his fans are kept in touch as to what he is doing. Give him credit for his tweets (that I get automatically), vlogs and appearances where he stays to sign autographs on cds, his book or whatever and does his best to give his fans the very best he has to give. That is why whenever a poll is announced there is a great response.

Anonymous said...

ditto to what anonymous posted at the top!!! Wheres Clay Aiken's new album from TNT???


Theres enough fighting in this world!! why squabble over a poll???? sheesh... These AI polls are becoming monotonous anyway..I already know who is #1 in my heart.

Anonymous said...

I was reading these comments. i think if ou have to defend with that attidude your not very mature. even if someone had 100 twits in an hour. does not mean they all will come to this poll. maybe 10 might in a hour grow up. ALL the idols have fans but some just dont like polls. cause all are stupid. espcailly ones where someone can cheat.
no need to instult and act like a child.

Anonymous said...

Hm. My comment from last night didn't post...David's votes went up quickly because as soon as we knew the poll existed, the word went out & we voted~ to the best of my knowledge, only once. It really is as simple as that.

The sales of "The Other Side of Down" is unrelated to the quality of the CD or the size of David's fanbase. The CD is actually great. Very quirky, energetic, fun & light~ like David. Those who've listened give it great reviews. BUT...outside of the online fanbase, few ppl know this CD exists, & most of those who know don't like to pay for their music.

At TOSOD's release, David had no mgmt, his A&R rep was leaving, and the head of JIVE was leaving. There was ZERO promo for a few months afterwards, 'til new mgmt stepped in. There still seems to be no radio promo or push from JIVE.
