On November 1, American Idol Season 7 winner David Cook will appear as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. David Cook’s appearance will mark the earliest appearance post win/finale for any Idol who has appeared on the show.
Cook will become the fourth idol to appear on the show, but the three previous American Idols whograced the 30 Rock stage did so well after their albums had been released or later in their careers. Clay Aiken and Carrie Underwood both appeared after their albums had been out for several months and Kelly Clarkson appeared in support of her second album.
David’s self-titled debut LP is due in stores November 18. He will perform the first single, “Light On,” in his “SNL” appearance, which will mark the first televised performance of the song, as well as Cook’s first public outing with his new band. The song is already available for download on iTunes.
His publicity tour in support of the album will also include a live, open-to-the-public performance on “Good Morning America” booked for Nov. 17. He has planned a national tour for early 2009.
