David Cook, Mix 94.1 Underground Lounge
Look in your heart and please believe
I’ll never go, I’ll never leave
From here until the end.
‘Til the clocks run out, till the sun breaks down
I’ll be all the love you need
‘Til the stars turn cold, I’ll never let you go
From here to zero.

David Cook - This Season 7 champ was so well-known for his perfectly pomaded, piecey shag, it became the subject of a famous “Best Week Ever” skit. The effect was called “Cookified,” and mousse-OD’ing rocker boys across the nation wanted that look. Why didn’t David ever get a hair product endorsement deal?

Sure, David Cook totally rocked Bon Jovi’s ”Living on a Prayer” in his audition, but it was hard to concentrate on his singing with what looked like a rooster sitting on top of his head. And that argyle sweater. No. Just no. His style screamed poser, but that would change at one pivotal moment during the finals: when Cook debuted his New Hair on top 9 Country Night. Goodbye, bad comb-over. Hello, hotness! Once again, concentrating on his exquisite cover of Dolly Parton’s ”Little Sparrow” was tough—but this time for all the right reasons.

Calling all David Cook fans! The season 7 winner will be appearing on the show this year, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. It will mark the Blue Springs, Missouri native’s fourth year in a row returning to the stage that launched his rock career. Cook’s performance is tentatively scheduled for May.
Also set to sing during season 11? Last year’s third place finalist Haley Reinhart, who will perform on the show Thursday, March 22, two days after she officially releases her debut single, “Free.”
The returning alums continue a long tradition of inviting Idol grads to perform on the current season of the show. Cook joins season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry, season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert, season 10’s James Durbin and reigning victor Scotty McCreery on the season 11 line-up, as previously reported.
As for what Cook might play? Although his most recent album, This Loud Morning, has been out for less than a year, it could be a new song, says an insider. Indeed, Cook’s tweets from the last few weeks have referenced a fair share of writing and music sessions and he’s said to have several songs in the can.
