Idol runner-up David Archuleta signs with 19 Recordings/Jive

Idol runner-up David Archuleta signs with 19 Recordings/Jive The runner-up of this year's American Idol, David Archuleta, has signed a music deal with 19 Recordings/Jive Records, the same company who signed up winner David Cook. "Signing a record contract with 19 Recordings/Jive Records is truly a dream come true. Being a fan of ‘American Idol’ since season one and admiring the alumni, I am honored and humbled to be a part of that group. I’m really excited to start working on everything," David Archuleta was quoted by Access Hollywood. The 17-year-old Utah star in the making was the favorite to win American Idol with the odds makers at BodogSports all the way until the last few episodes. Rumors of troubles between 19 Recordings and Archuleta seem to have been false, after the youngster put ink on his new contract.

 Meanwhile, much to the disappointment to David Archuleta fans, he will not be going solo anytime soon. Earlier reports in the media had his father Jeff Archuleta organizing a solo tour of the Idol finalist, but officials associated with the "American Idol" concert tour shut the idea down, claiming a solo concert would drive interest in the American Idol tour away.
