There is plenty of American Idol joy being spread on New Year’s Eve. While ABC has American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and former American Idol finalist Kellie Pickler, FOX has American Idol 7 winner David Cook on New Year’s Eve Live. David Cook will be performing live from The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada.
American Idol 7 winner David Cook was born in Houston, Texas, and he was raised in Blue Springs, Missouri. David Cook’s self-titled, major-label debut album entered the Billboard charts at No. 3.
Spike Feresten and Mark Thompson will host New Year’s Eve Live from the Las Vegas Strip. Spike Feresten is the host of Talkshow with Spike Feresten, and Mark Thompson is the co-host of reality game show Hole In The Wall.
New Year’s Eve Live will feature a count down to 2009, along with celebrity guests and musical performances. As the midnight hour draws near, New Year’s Eve Live will switch to New York City to ring in the New Year, while the New Year’s Eve Ball makes its descent into Times Square.
After midnight, New Year’s Eve Live will make its own reality TV. Daredevil Robbie Knievel will attempt a motorcycle jump over an erupting volcano. Not a real volcano of course, but the recently renovated Mirage Volcano.
“How better to draw the world’s attention to the new Mirage and our fiery main attraction then with a spectacular stunt on one of the hottest nights of the year?” said Scott Sibella, who is President and COO of The Mirage. “Having Robbie jump our new Volcano on New Year’s Eve will provide the perfect cap to our multi-million dollar transformation.”
New Year’s Eve Live starts airing at 11 PM ET on Wednesday, December 31 on FOX.
