Ehh it's ok. Not something I'd really listen to, but it's not that bad. Pretty expected that this is what his music would sound like.

I am a "middle aged" Archuleta fan and am happy he has a single out. I like "Crush" and think it will do well on the radio. I think he should be singing songs like this to appeal to the pop audience. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but I was taken back by some of the comments above that attack David (and his family) personally. David is young but definately more MATURE than some of the others above are!!!! Go DAVID!!!!

David Archuleta is a very talented young man with a big heart and this makes him very endearing. CRUSH is awesome! It has #1 written all over it! His fans love him more and more each day not only because of his exceptional talent but also because of his exceptional personality. He is heaven-sent, our angel.:)

Archie hit it outta the park!!!!! Believe me when I say there were tons of us Archies up all night (and still up) - chatrooms blazing across the US , from Guam, Singapore, Japan, Canada, the Phillipines, India in nervous anticipation of this debut - and we all feel Jive has done our “Crown Prince” proud…. this is the beauty of him being 17 years old - the tiger is yet to be fully unleashed, and this debut goes a LONG way in silencing the critics and detractors who wrote him of as being unable to appeal to a “mainstream” pop audience…. BRAVO DAVID….

Why is he smiling? Ummm, maybe because his dreams are coming true at age 17? This kid is at the start of a promising career, and he just released his first single with a major label. And the song is good -- I think it will be a hit for him. What were you doing when you were 17?

I am a David Archuleta older fan and heard about his worries that we would not like his ‘popish’ single. Well, I loved to hear this 17 year old sing age-appropriate lyrics… it´s a really catchy pop song, it´s young but can be enjoyed by all tween, teens, young adults, adults and more mature audiences. Most of us can relate to that feeling. It´s a universal theme, with broad appeal, so the song will captivate so many people, from kids to grannies! I´d would like him doing ballads showing his deep, soulful, soaring vocals, but those probably wouldn´t receive a huge amount of radio play. ‘Crush’ , however, certainly will, so it is the best for now. This little kid is headed for stardom, as Paula said.

I love Crush. I think I've probably listened to it 100 times since that first play at 8AM yesterday. Sure it's more aimed at his younger fans and kids his own age, but David's album will be a mix of pop songs, message songs, and some soulful stuff - I cannot wait to hear it. As for the haters and their personal attacks on David - what is wrong with you?

a bit boybandy for my taste... but not a bad song...I maybe would have liked it when I was 14. I was hoping Archie would go the One Republic route, but I guess that music is a little too mature for him? I'm still rooting for him though...I'll never buy his album but I'm hoping he is successful.

As usual,these paid basher would google the targets (whoever they got paid for) and if there are any new news, they would put bashing comments at the end of the news. The best to use for male targets is "He is gay." (This time, "he is a serial killer, even the dad too.") Go look at other blogs, same thing all over again and again. They got paid to do these things.

David Archuleta´s musical talent was pretty evident from his very first audition, that one we will never forget. The judges and us were captivated by his soulful, mature, smooth, soaring voice at a tender age of only 16 at that time. The artistry he exhibited then was just unreal, and we witnessed that week after week. He revealed himself as a storyteller, because he showcased songs that had meaning and told us a story. He brought us to tears with an amazing rendition of “Imagine”. Then he turn an Opera song into a beautiful ballad. His rendition to “Love me tender” was really ‘tender’, as he cherished each word, and “Don´t let the sun goes down on me” was marvelous, the best version of this song ever played. I felt deeply sorry because Archie didn´t sing “The first time ever I saw your face”, because I think it is one of the best songs ever writtened, and he would probably turn it into the best version ever done if he had sing it. David Cook, though, gave us a colorless rendition of it. And Archie´s new song, “In this moment”, didn´t sound as new, because there was an instant connection… it seemed like he always sang it, wonderful song choice! He connects with the audience so well that he is like painting his words into a song, and touches right our hearts and souls through his voice. He doesn´t just sing, he truthfully affects people´s lives. It´s phenomenal, and a gift blessed by God which makes him unique as an artist. Now such talent has been given to the world. For me David Archuleta was the winner of AI season 7 and of all the seasons, followed by Chris Daughtry. He has a magnificent future ahead him, and I can't even imagine how good his music will be when he is older, because his standard right now is just so high... I think ‘Crush’ is a perfect, catchy, radio friendly pop song. I prefer him doing more mature songs that really showcases his amazing voice, but those wouldn´t receive an amount of radio play, and this one certainly will, so it is the best for now. There is no doubt all his fans will be overjoyed with it and he will winning new supporters along the way, as it is played on all the radio stations.

I love the song. I expected to like it coz everything David sings is magic, but I seriously love it! I've had it on repeat all day long and still can't get enough. To really appreciate it, you need to listen to it more than once or twice. I love the opening runs and how sincerely he emotes in it. He's such a talent, such a sweetheart. Wow, a lot of the people on this site are so NEGATIVE, I'm wondering if they're going to get together later for a mass suicide. David is sweet and smiley, and they bash him for it? What losers!

lol. The haters are so predictable and boring. meh They always make the same lame tired comments. Don't they have someone they would like to support instead of wasting their time and integrity trying to spread the same old lame lies and downer remarks. Geez guys, get a life and find something positive to do with it. You will be a lot happier if you try to do something for someone instead of trying to tear people down. For me David Archuleta was the winner of AI season 7 and really the winner of all the seasons. I have never been as moved by a voice as by his. He can touch my heart and soul when he sings. I don't know what it is about this kid but I love him and his music. I will be a fan for life. Like Cook said "He is the real deal". By the way I like David Cook and respect him for the way he has comported himself. I wish him and Daviid great success in their futures.

I love "Crush"! It's completely radio friendly. It's also really addicting. Yes, granted David has a voice that can melt your soul, but the best is yet to come. This is the perfect song to get him lots of airplay. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us with the rest of his album.
