will be launching his first solo tour at the end of February, and he admits he's anxious. "Hopefully, I'll be ready, but I can't help being nervous about it. It's a really big step, and you wonder whether anyone will come out to see the shows, what songs to perform and all," says Archuleta.(Video
The fans will get to see lots more Archuleta Feb. 7 -- guesting as himself on Nickelodeon
, and hosting the channel's romance-themed night with "iCarly" star Miranda Cosgrove. "That was fun," he says of doing the episode. "I don't usually get to do work things with kids around my age, and that was great." He did ask for a change in the script that has him competing on a reality show. "I was supposed to say I hated this other person, but I don't really hate anyone. Since I was playing myself, I didn't want people to think I'd hate somebody," he says. "That's really not me. So we watered it down a little bit -- 'I don't really like that person' -- and it was fine."
As far as whether he'd like to try acting in the future, Archuleta says, "This wasn't really acting, but it did give me a little taste of how it would be. I was surprised by how much I liked it and how much fun I had."
