Most AMAZING night ever!!!

David Archuelta in Idaho Falls. Absolutely incredible! He has such an amazing voice and he looks so effortless when he sings. I couldn't believe how he hit every note, without any trouble. That's the good thing about American Idols, they can actually sing live.

I was lucky enough to get to be in the pit, which was raised by the way. I was literally like one foot maybe two feet away from him. I came so close to touching his hand but a lady with a lot of hair was right in front of me and blocked my hand. I was slightly sad but oh well. It was just fun to be part of the crowd that was able to put my hand up there when he was near. I've always wanted to be able to do that haha.

He started the concert off with one of my favorite songs: Touch My Hand. This is when the grabbing hands happened. Appropriate? Yes. Throughout the night, he did most of his album and a few other songs, for example Love Song and I'm Yours. I was so excited when he sang I'm Yours, I love that song and he totally dominated it! Of course! And he played the piano on Love Song which made it even better. He was so cute the whole night. He had so much energy, never missed a note, got the crowd involved, and played the piano beautifully. I never knew he could play as well as he did. I didn't hear him miss a note and I was right by the piano. :) I was just so impressed with his performances. And his speaking voice has definitely matured, I was surprised to hear him talk, he sounds nothing like the boy on American Idol. I was also surprised at how small he was! He is so little! He was so adorable, this little guy, amazing voice, dancing and jumping the whole time. I don't know how he did it. I also have to point out that he was wearing black leather Converse, yep I was close enough to see that they were leather! I also was close enough to see the sweat dripping down his face ha.

I was so sad when he left the stage but was psyched again when he came back for his encore. He did it without a band. He accompanied himself on the piano for two songs. He sang A Thousand Miles, and totally nailed the piano, which I've heard slaughtered, it's pretty tough. His very last song of the whole show was Angels from his album and oh my gosh, I couldn't stop smiling. He was, of course, incredible.

I had seen David on the American Idol tour last summer and he was just as happy and excited to be there but I loved being close enough at this concert to see all the excitement on his face and be able to take on an entire show by himself. I'm incredibly sad that it's over but am so happy that I was able to experience the show so close to him and I hope he does another tour in the near future, I will most definitely be there! I love you David!!

It couldn't get any better than him singin while playin the piano. So cute!

This is one of my favorite pictures. I liked the lighting

My Love For Adam Lambert

I absolutely love Adam Lambert. I think he is an incredible performer and don't like it that people judge him just because he might be gay or has some fashion sense. His voice is definitely one of the best on the show this season.
Now on to his performance from last night. It was country week. He is not country. He did his own thing. I totally admire him for that. I don't think it would have been smart for him to try to do country, he would have looked like an absolute idiot. The version of the song was extremely unique. Yes it was weird but why should he be expected to be normal when he can totally pull of such a strange performance.
I was also pleasantly surprised that country week, of all the weeks, would make me totally like almost all of the other contestants. I definitely wasn't convinced about some of them but country week totally made me change my mind. I truly wouldn't mind if any of them won. I don't hate any of them. But Adam is still my favorite! Watch Adam's performance but if you do, please keep an open mind.

My Current Antisocial Life

So being new to the blog scene, this first entry may be random and I still don't know what I will be writing so I will begin and see where it takes me.
Right now, I am off track. I will start school again on April 20 and I absolutely can't wait! I love school, no matter how nerdy it seems. I am all registered for classes and it's going to be a rough semester. I have Accounting, Economics, Business, Professional Communications and Book of Mormon. I also am going to continue working through the semester so that will make it even more crazy. I have no idea who my roommates are at this point and I am really hoping that they aren't psycho.
Until school starts I'm going to continue doing what I have since January: WORKING! I have been a work-a-holic since I got my job and I love it. I work at JCPenney in the suit department and I honestly could not have asked for a better job. I feel so blessed to have gotten such a good job in such a crappy economy. I work lots of hours and don't have a lot of down time but that's okay. When I do have down time, I spend it watching American Idol and Dancing With the Stars or reading.
Being off track during the winter has been both fantastic and lonely. I don't really have any friends because everyone is in school. I don't do anything social, I'm sure I could get out there more than I do, but it's really hard. Basically everyone in Idaho Falls that I know is still in high school. I have been going to the single's branch so that has helped but I don't do anything outside of the branch with anyone. Life has been great off track because for one I know that I'm not in Rexburg during the winter. I would hate walking around campus in the winter so that part has been excellent.
Like I said, I'm very excited to get back to school and meet new people and just get away from Idaho Falls, even if it is just by thirty minutes.
