In a less-than-stunning development, David Archuleta has signed a record contract with 19 Recordings/Jive Records.
This season's runner-up referred to the deal as "truly a dream come true,â€ and added that "Iâ€™m really excited to start working on everything.â€
The Utah native and fan favorite already has three songs on the Hot 100 chart, including his memorable versions of â€œImagineâ€ and â€œIn This Moment,â€ the song he performed on the American Idol finale.
Through it all, Archuleta remains humble and cautious, recently saying â€œschool is really important, especially after all this ends. It would be nice to make a living off of it but you never know.â€
We know, David. We know.
