"Idol" to Archuleta: Lose the Dad, Carry the 1

5/13/2008 8:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David ArchuletaHe's just hours away from performing live in front of millions of people, but 17-year-old "American Idol" wonderboy David Archuleta still has a few problems to work out -- problems of the high school math kind.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ that David has been with his tutor on the set, gettin' his state-mandated learnin' on.

Looks like a passion for math runs in the Archuleta family. As TMZ first reported, his dad Jeff just got a lesson in subtraction late last week.

DAvid A is creepy. He can't move and has a huge, ugly butt and a weird smile.
He always looks like he's on the verge of a mental breakdown.

Make him go away. If he's an "Idol", then the show is definitely OVER!
He can 'sing', but that is it, he's boring, boring, boring -- and strange.

In 3-5 years this kid will dress in gothic black with nose rings, praise the use of weed, worship satan and assault his father with a tack hammer or something worse.

Umm, we know David has a tutor. We know the tutor is on the set. We know it's mandated that he be tutored. We know, or can safely assume, that he studies math.

Put em all together and what do you have? Yet another dull TMZ post...OH QUICK, IDOL IS COMING ON SOON!!!!!!!! WE HAVE TO WRITE SOMETHING!!!! BUT WHAT????? HEY, WE CAN WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT TUTORING AND MAKE IT SOUND LIKE A REALLY GOOD POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everybody watching tonight needs to call in for David Cook. If Archuletta wins this thing after being unwarrantedly praised by the judges every stinking week, I will never watch this show again. It is so obvious that the judges have been instructed to heap on the praise so as to make the playing field highly unlevel for the others. Judges influence the vote and that is not how this should be. It is the publics choice, not the judges. They may have opinions of this young idiot who cries at the drop of a dime like a little bitch, but those opinions should not be allowed to influence the general public. Save it Randy, Paula and Simon, your boy will probably win because of the unfair advantage you have given him with your lying commentary but in a year, it will prove out that David Cook will sell more CD's than this wannabe could ever sell. Enough is enough, stop praising this monotonous little bitch.

Is is true he has Down's Syndrome?
Then I feel sorry for him.

But it doesn't mean he should win.
None of them deserve to win.
Would you buy their albums?????

What's up with the hatred for this person? Some of these posters are just pitiful ... . David looks like a sweet person who hasn't done anything to deserve the hatred. I really do hope the pigs commenting here get what's coming to them ... soon.
