David Cook, winner and Snarkista’s total FAVE this past season on American Idol, is coming to Saturday Night Live on November 1st! He’ll be the musical guest for the night, and will perform his first single “Light On”. If you haven’t heard it, OR can’t get enough of it…here you go.
David’s appearance will be the earliest any American Idol winner or finalist has appeared on the show. He’ll be Idol number 4 to appear. The three other Idols to do SNL appeared quite a while after their albums had been released. Clay Aiken and Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson have all visited the show. With SNL’s ratings up in the stratosphere these days, it’s a SMART move by brainy Dave. (Snarkista loves a word-geek.)
Davidâ€™s self-titled first album will drop on November 18th. His performance of â€œLight Onâ€ on SNL will be the first TV performance of the song. David’s will also do a live performance on Good Morning America November 17th. His national tour will begin in early 2009.
Season 7 runner-up, and tween sensation David Archuleta released his debut single “Crush” a few months ago, and it’s gotten a very warm welcome. Archie is an amazing talent, and a guy who is truly a great role model.Click to watch the precious video here at Snark Food!
The Davids had quite a battle for the win this year, but both seem to genuinely have a great time together. Cookie’s been like one of little Archie’s big brothers on the American Idol tour. Cook and finalistMichael Johns also have a blast with each other, and have gotten a lot of attention for their “Mavid” bro-dances on the tour. They are pretty dang funny! Check ’em out below… and save the date to watch Mr. Awesome on SNL.
