Sis and Eat Bulaga Go Gaga Over David Archuleta, May 14, 2009, The Philippines

14 May 2009   3:22pm, Manila time

These are notes I took while watching David Archuleta at GMA Channel 7's Sis and Eat Bulaga this morning and early afternoon.

First off, Sis with  Gelli de Belen, Carmina Villaroel and Janice de Belen.  It started at 10:30 a.m.  They titled the show David Archuleta – Idol Kita! Matinding Saludo, Dadaanin sa Kanta.  

Comments and responses by David Archuleta are in bold italics.

First song David learned:  Castle on a Cloud, Les Miserables.

What songs did you grow up with?  Lots of jazz ...

Favorite song now?  It’s hard to pick …  I’m Yours by Jason Mraz.


Favorite all-time performer?  Michael Jackson… so many great songs.

Other favorite performers?  OK.  Stevie Wonder. Jason Mraz,  Natasha Bedingfield,  Sara Bareilles, Natalie Cole, Mariah Carey.

They talked about the talent search when David sang to Kelly Clarkson (the time was 10:53am).

Kyla sang (I'm still trying to figure out fro my notes what she sang), 10:55 am.

All these singers can sing better than I can… Filipinos are so amazingly talented.

The three show hosts introduce Kyla, "She’s our Soul Princess."  

At 10:56 am, Kyla was making frantic requests for her to have a picture with David Archuleta. I believe it was Carmina who took their picture to the relief of grateful fan Kyla.      

Gelli, Carmina and Janice gave some souvenirs to David:

a Barong Tagalog

a male doll clad in a barong

a bottle with a boat inside it (David kept asking, How did it get in there?)

a miniature Jeepney

a miniature Ice Cream Cart

At 11:21 am, it happened, David Archuleta sang A Little Too Not over You and the audience went wild. What they just got was a preview of Saturday's concert.  

After David's song, Fearless Productions executives, Jomari Yllana and Cong. Ronald Singson invited the audience to see the concert on Saturday, May 16; tickets are available at Ticketnet and Ticketworld according to Jomari. By 11:28am, David's unforgettable stint at Sis was over. Sulit ang ipinila at ipinaghintay ng mga fans.  

Here is the video clip from GMAnews.tv on David Archuleta's visit at Sis:

Next stop in the afternoon was Eat Bulaga, also at Channel 7.                   

David was introduced at 1:39pm and immediately sings Crush.

“All the boys and girls are screaming … not just the girls,” that was the crowd's reaction according to Julia Clarete who is herself a talented singer.

Pia Guanio, mention Twitter and David's expression of appreciation and surprise at how Filipinos have received them here.   Pia also mentioned that David love Philippine mango.

I think I was in heaven when I was eating it … I love mangoes.

I want to go to a real Filipino restaurant and just try real Filipino cuisine.

"Do you know it's Stevie Wonder’s birthday today?"  Oh yeah, he’s timeless.

What song of Stevie Wonder do you like?  I love Sir Duke.

And then David began to hum it ... to the delight of the crowd.

Tomorrow, Pia announced, it will be David Cook's turn to visit Eat Bulaga!    

The time was 1:47pm and everybody began to say goodbye to the one and only David Archuleta.
