Simon Didn't Vote Off Archuleta's Dad

5/10/2008 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeff Archuleta did plenty of things to get himself banned from "Idol" -- but piss off Simon Cowell wasn't one of them.


We asked the "A.I." judge what he thought about David's stage dad from hell -- but for once Simon had nothing but nice things to say.

As TMZ first reported, Jeff is "banned from being in the rooms where David was learning or rehearsing his songs." He will be allowed to sit in the audience during the live show, but he's 86'd from anything backstage.

Go simon! His mom is cute too! ok, well TMZ, please stop trying to find dirt on this poor kid. What has he ever done to deserve all this media BS? It was like you were desperately trying to get dirt on him with those questions, and you failed miserably. Please, act human once in a while...

This is really funny.....

I always thought Simon was a big a$$hole and that he thought he was the $hit but he stopped and talked to these looser reports for longer than most would have.....

Even with the "just one more question" being said like four or five times, he still answered all the paps questions and didn't tell them to go f**k themselves as I would have been if I was out with my man and my mum....

Wow thanx TMZ for showing me that he isn't the arrogant, self righteous, a$$ that I thought he was.

Hey guys, Tell me why TMZ is so obsessed about David Archuleta's Dad? I cannot see why and how Jeff Archuleta could turn you guys on like crazy! Is he really that hot?
