American Idol 2008 Runner Up Archuleta Signs Record Deal

American Idol runner- up David Archuleta signed a record deal with 19 Recordings/Jive Records and is expected to release his debut album later this year. Archuleta follows the footsteps of other Idol contenders such as Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, and Clay Aiken who have proved themselves successful — sometimes more than the winners of the AI season they competed in.

Although Archuleta was expected to win this season’s AI, David Cook stole the throne winning by about 12 million votes. Nevertheless, the 17-year old David already established a huge fan base even before the finals of AI 2008.

Album producers believe that Archuleta is a true pop star and his potential goes beyond American Idol itself. Like Daughtry, it is widely believed that Archuleta can surpass Cook’s fame after AI.
