david archuleta latest vlog 'American Idol': David Archuleta vlogs details on album, video and appearances

The rest of the “American Idol” world may be in turmoil, but at least young David Archuleta remains a constant source of cartoonish grins and non-drama.

The Season 7 runner-up took to YouTube in between writing songs for his upcoming album, “The Other Side of Down,” to update fans on the recording process and the general state of his ArchuLife.

So what of “The Other Side of Down?” Well, he’s working with producers Steve Diamond, Toby Gad and Lindy Robins. And the first music video, for “Something Bout Love,” which shot in downtown Los Angeles in mid-July, should be out soon, as he’s just seen — and enjoyed! — the final edit.

Archie also spills where you can see him next. Given his two Teen Choice nominations (for American Idol Album and Fanatic Fans), he’ll also be appearing as a presenter on the August 9 broadcast.
