Yes, you read that right. Over the past few weeks on Billboard, the site has matched up former contestants in head-to-head competitions. David made it to the final showdown against Carrie Underwood, and then proceeded to easily top her with 92% of the vote.
David classified the honor on Billboard as “really flattering.”
“I guess the fans I have are just really supportive,” David remarked. ”I think it’s cool that people consider me their favorite, especially because it’s Billboard. I check Billboard every week and I’m starting to get the magazine more, and I have a Billboard book, so it’s just funny that this is from Billboard, too. It’s not just some teen website, you know? It’s Billboard. I think that’s cool.”
David was also surprised to discover that he beat Carrie, and not only beat her, but destroyed her by a large margin. “It’s crazy,” David added. ”Carrie’s just so successful. She’s sold millions and millions of albums and she has a great voice and a great personality.”
