Apparently, the day he was supposed to be going to his high school prom in his hometown of Murrary, Utah, he was instead meeting with music legend Neil Diamond. Fellow finalist Brooke White helped get him through, by inviting him to a fake prom and being his date for the day.
"I spent the day with Brooke, so she's the one I danced with for my prom day," he told Pop Tarts after the "Idol" elimination on Wednesday night. "I would have preferred this anyway; it would have been nice to go to prom, but I'm so glad I was here instead. Standing there dancing with Brooke was pretty cool."
Mind you, Archuleta did get other offers. David Cook also asked him to dance. He declined.
Who are you cheering for???
