Record Execs Think Hernandez Still Muy Caliente!

3/13/2008 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David HernandezDon't let his early exit from "Idol" fool you -- David Hernandez is still hot ... and we don't mean those stripper pics!

TMZ spoke to several H-Wood record execs who are still dying to work with David. We're told the thinking is.... strike while the iron is hot and release a quick single rather than wait and release a full album. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen.

As TMZ first reported, the biggie publishing companies singled out David Hernandez and David Archuleta early on and told songwriters to create tunes tailored for them.

To number 28 made the comparison to Frenchie. The difference is photographs. Frenchie and the other girl who was tossed off the show had pictures that went public. Other than the few pics of him shirtless at a bar there have been no nude photos of him to surface that I have seen and quite frankly don't you think they would have surfaced by now if there had been nude pics or lap dances photos? As to your inane comments about him being effeminate, they do not even rate response. Back to your doublewide where you belong.

We all now it wasn't the lack of talent that got him booted off - It's sad we're still judging people - like we have the right. It's sad - just sad.

I agreed with Simon and thought his performance was corny. He seems like a cruise ship performer.

In fairness this week is the first week I watched the show so I haven't seen him do anything else but he didn't exactly motivate me to be interested whereas I have checked out some of the other contestants.

Oh and # 36. Do you really know of any strip clubs, fully nude or otherwise, that allow cameras to be used. Give me a break. Stop trying to push your own agenda into the mainstream. He should have been dropped for that like Frenchie was, and not supposedly voted off. You'e not in the music biz and have no idea whar your talkin about

To 41.....The hypocrisy of your argument is staggering.....So you are saying that the mainstream viewpoint is that people should vote against him based upon past activity that has yet to be proven??? My friend, that is the ignorant mentality that is truly at the heart of everything that is wrong with this country. No dear Pecklesnooch, the true mainstream let's facts not hearsay dictate what happens. Even the Idol producers would appear to have applied that standard. Whilst in my humble opinion he was not nearly as good as the remaining contestants, he was certainly better than the girl.

I'm in Europe, and if he would release here "Papa is a rolling stone" Me and many others would buy it in a sec. Who cares what the man does with his own a... or what he does for a living? He's REALLY talented. Grow up people, americans can be so narrow-minded sometimes! Relax, if you don't like the guy, just don't buy his music, as simple as that.

I feel bad about this...the guy had a sleek sound and was gung ho...(no ho jokes)...the light went out in him week by week...he was distracted, disheartened and defensive...I hope he turns it around and finds the right niche for his work...finds some deeper meaning in this whole thing and let's it show in his craft.

David was by far the contestant with one of the best voices and certainly the most charismatic. Hope this is all true because I cant' wait for a single or CD to come out !!

If AI audience choose the worst singer of the night, it has got to be David A since he forgot his lyrics 4 times!!! The judges were lying through their teeth when they said these are the correct bottom three! I like David A a lot but if we were solely judging these contestants on singing (as the judges keep on repeating this is a singing competition not a popularity contest), then I say David A should have gotten kicked off. David H got kicked off is a reflection of this show is a popularity NOT a singing contest. He definitely was not the worst of the bunch. It was not his best night but definitely not bad enough to be kicked off if we use the worst singer of the night barometer. Best of luck David H and be proud of who you are. Be true to yourself.

David Cook should win idol and will get a record oontract. They had to have gotten the David's mixed up. David Cook has the BEST recordiing voice, and I can hear him on radio. He is a perfect fit....and cute.
