Tomorrow. is. August 1. If you haven't noticed, THAT'S CRUSH'S ANNIVERSARY! 3RD YEAR! :'( It was 3 years ago! Who could believe that?!
Tiff's Flashback info:
ON August 1, 2008, David Archuleta went to Z100, a radio station to premiere his song "Crush" for the first time EVER! (And he listened to himself sing it...for the first time ever..) AHAHAHAHAH DAVID HATES HEARING HIMSELF!! XD At least he's gotten better with that now. XD and every David Archuleta fan WAS HYPED UP AFTER HE WON 2ND PLACE ON AMERICAN IDOL! :D .........."released two months later, debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart; it has sold over 750,000 copies in the U.S. and over 900,000 Worldwide" ← Wikipedia can say it better than me. :D
ON August 1, 2009: All the David fans on twitter decided to trend #crush and #davidarchuleta.
Spamming their twitters, #crush and #davidarchuleta went on the trending topics!!! And from that day, the Archuleta had hope that IF we ALL work together, we can make it happen. And so we did.
ON August 1, 2010... #crush trended in some cities and some countries but it never went worldwide. (Nothing really happened that day)
ON August 1, 2011.. Well. WE SHOULD TREND SOMETHING RIGHT?! We'll post the final and official trend we're gonna trend tomorrow as soon as other fansites agree with the same trend. :D
But until then, FOLLOW US ON TWITTER!? We'll list you in our lovely Archufans list! :) and give you a personal big shoutout! :)
Showbiz: Touched by Archie

American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta came, sang and conquered the hearts of his fans with ease, writes SUBHADRA DEVAN.
DAVID Archuleta, at a mere 173 cm**** (the same height as kungfu exponent Donnie Yen), is a powerhouse when it comes to music.
At his first full concert here last Tuesday, the American Idol Season 7 runner-up delivered song after song, to the screams of girls.
The venue, Stadium Negara, was three-quarters filled and it was obvious that the tweens, teens and everyone else seemed happy just to hear Archuleta sing “live”.
Despite the deafening screams and a sound system that left a boom in my ears, there was a convivial family-like atmosphere at the stadium.

David Archuleta has never been kissed. Kicking back on a couch at Hilton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Monday, the 21-year-old singer burst into spasms of childlike giggles when we asked him about girls.
“Fans have tried to kiss me,” he said coyly. “But they usually don’t succeed. I have quick reflexes. It’s okay if my grandma or my mum and sister kiss me on the cheek, but otherwise, it’s just weird.”
For young Archuleta, a kiss isn’t just a kiss. “I feel that it’s very important and it’s not something you should just give away. I know sometimes people go like: ‘Oh, you’re cute, I’m gonna kiss you’, but for me, sharing a kiss means you care for someone, that you feel affection for them. I don’t wanna be giving it away like candy.”
He added he has never been in a relationship. “I haven’t found that someone special yet and I’m still saving my first kiss for whoever that is.”
His single, My Kind Of Perfect, he said, epitomises his quest for the right girl.
“It’s my perfect love song,” he shared with a twinkle in his eyes. “It’s for a future girl who I don’t know yet. I wrote that song while thinking about who is she going to be? Or have I already met her?”
The affable pop singer channelled his hopeful longing at his concert in Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur, the following night, bringing on that honeyed charm that so effectively lulled nearly 2,500 fans.
He looked completely immersed in a visceral calm as he sang the maple syrup-drenched verses of My Kind Of Perfect while playing the piano. “It’s my love song,” he told fans, his face shining with mirthful belief.
Maybe I’ve known you all my life / Is she the one? Is it today? / Will I turn the corner / see my future in a beautiful face, maybe, he sang.
Indeed, it was a sweet treat filled with sugary serenades for fans of the pop singer that night. No more was he the shy little boy we conversed with earlier.
Onstage, young Archuleta possessed the pomp and readiness of a much older performer, radiating surety and confidence all through the one-hour plus affair.
Archuleta, who emerged the runner-up on the hit reality series, American Idol, in 2008 kicked off the set with the catchy Stomping The Roses, brandishing the energetic opening with youthful enthusiasm.
If anything, the absence of fireworks and fancy costume changes meant that Archuleta had only one thing to rely on – his voice. He’d used it well, too, flaunting his signature vocal prowess on emotive, baby-smooth numbers that make you just want to smile.
He went on with the radio-friendly A Little Too Not Over You before breaking into an evocative cover of Tears for Fears’ Everybody Wants To Rule The World.
Archuleta may not have the rocking edge of Adam Lambert or the girlish sassiness of Carrie Underwood, but the baby-faced singer certainly has the talent and charisma to pull off his own show.
He ended the night with his hit single Crush, looking thoroughly ecstatic as he poured his heart out.

BABYFACE David Archuleta showed that he had the skills to thrill young fans on Tuesday evening at his first ever, full-blown concert in Malaysia.
On his second visit to our shores, the 20-year-old Utah native belted out his own popular tunes as well as giving a spin on some classic hits for thousands of fans at Stadium Negara for an hour and a half, as part of his 'The Other Side of Down' tour.
Scheduled to start at 8pm, concert goers began to fill up the stadium from 7.30pm onwards. Although the stadium was nowhere close to being packed, there was a whole lot of love for David within the stadium grounds, with clusters of fans singing out his hit Something 'Bout Love before there were any signs of the concert starting.
Upcoming homegrown artiste Hao Ren, who is under the organizer Sony Music label, appeared on stage at 8.30pm, signalling the start of the concert and for fans, it was time to scream more so for David then Hao Ren. After singing only one song with the help of dancers, the winner of two awards at the 2011 MYAstro Music Awards, gave the audience a little introduction before leaving the stage for David.
After his band appeared, fans did not have to wait too long for their 'Idol' to come on stage. Showing off his Bahasa Malaysia skills with "Apa khabar Malaysia?", he launched into his first song Stomping The Roses and moving along to the title of his tour The Other Side of Down.
The 2008 American Idol runner-up then got the crowd excited with his hit A Little Too Not Over You and gave a little advise about love before going on to Love Don't Hate.
However, the youthful David got most attention when he went on to sing the upbeat number Something 'Bout Love - which got the fans both young and old singing along with him.
David also showed a more mature side of him when he sang a cover of Tears For Fears hit, Everybody Wants To Rule The World. The girls in the audience got a sneak peak to his own Miss Right, in his single My Kind of Perfect. Many were seen moving their colourful glow sticks in tune with the tender ballad.
Thanking his fans after every song, David shared his dreams through the catchy song Elevator, which was another hit among the audience. After introducing his band, he revealed that he misses his mother when he tours and sang Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles to remember her and touched many with his skills on the piano.
While fans went into a frenzy for the sweet-faced singer, he continued to entertain with Falling Stars before getting more approval from the crowd with his popular tune Touch My Hand. He gave the older audience , many consisting of parents of fans, something to enjoy with Stand By Me, a song made popular by Ben E King.
Calling it a night with Zero Gravity, the singer was enthusiastically jumping around the stage, much to the delight of the fans. His short disappearance backstage also saw fans shrieking more for him, which is obliged with three more songs, including a slow and smooth version of Gnarles Barkley's Crazy on piano. Ending it with another cover Heaven by Bryan Adams and his own hit Crush, the singer thanked his fans before making an exit.
David's naturally friendly personality, strong voice, and joyful smiles made it a happy concert experience for all there.

Thank goodness the 'Elevator' was empty! We can't imagine being late to see the much-loved David Archuleta during his press conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. The 20-year old former Idol finalist answered questions, talked about his upcoming show and of course, showed his love for his fans! While there, he was also presented with his six-time platinum award by Sony. What does that mean? It means Archie's album,The Other Side of Down, has sold over six million copies in physical and digital mediums. Congratulations, Archie! Also in attendance were some lucky fans, representing David's local fan clubs OneDavid and Archuleta Avenue Malaysia (AAM). The girls were more than happy to smile for our shutterbug! Check out what Archie had to say during his press conference. Will we be seeing you tonight at the concert at 8pm, Stadium Negara? Come say hello!
I watched annoying ads every time i pause the video. I hope that doesn't happen when you play it! And.. if you don't understand what they're saying, there are captions. :D

Congrats David! ♥♥
In Kuala Lumpur, David received a “wau,” a traditional Malaysian kite, as well as an award for 6x platinum sales of combined physical and digital music. Presenter show is Mr. Adrian Lim, managing director of Sony Music Malaysia.
Congrats David! ♥♥
David Archuleta Doesn't Do DrugsFor the concert tomorrow night, David may perform Touch My Hand because he revealed that it was one of his favourite songs. "It's a song that's meant to be performed live," he told the roomful of press and invited fans. "It's meant to describe what it is like to be on stage and to see the crowd and what it feels like to share that moment with someone there at the show."Cutie pie David Archuleta arrived in Kuala Lumpur this afternoon and at a press conference several hours ago, he was presented with a plaque marking his six times platinum status by Sony Music Malaysia and a wau as a souvenir.David receiving his plaque from Sony Music MalaysiaDavid expressed sadness at the news of Amy Winehouse's sudden passing: "I know she'd gone through a lot and she lived a very difficult life but she has made some great music which has made a huge impact on the music industry. It's sad to see her go."When asked if he ever took drugs, David, although a little surprised by the question given his squeaky clean image, answered it like a pro.David posing for photographers -- check out the sumptuous spread on the table!
"I can say that that's something I'm not involved in," he said. "I try to encourage kids of all ages if there's something that they've become quite addicted to... I do believe that if you're motivated enough to get out of it, you can get out of it. I just hope that if anyone is struggling with that, I know that they can improve their lives by getting out of it.
There's no doubt after today that David loves his Malaysian fans because he distinctly remembers his last trip: "I do remember coming here last time when I did the showcase. I always remember that experience and I remember all the Malaysian fans that were there and were at the airport too. I'm really excited to come and do a full concert in Malaysia because the fans have been very supportive. I'm just preparing many of the popular songs from the albums that are released and a few covers that I like to sing. I just hope that the Malaysian fans enjoy it."
We're sure they will David!
