American Idol’s finale will kick off next Tuesday at 8 pm with the finalists’ performances, but joining Scotty and Lauren during the music fest, will be season seven winner David Cook who will take the stage. Fox confirmed in a press release “David Cook will return to the American Idol stage for a live performance of “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. Earlier this year Cook recorded this as the farewell song for the 10th season of American Idol, which has been heard every week this season. The song, chosen by American Idol creator and Executive Producer Simon Fuller, is a remake of Simple Minds 1985 smash “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. Cook has already graced the American Idol stage once this season when he debuted “The Last Goodbye” last month to rave reviews and stellar fanfare.”
David Cook fans will be thrilled to know that the video for “The Last Goodbye” will also be hitting iTunes next week – on Monday, the 23rd to be exact. David Cook will be releasing his second album “This Loud Morning” on June 28th and it can be pre-ordered from DavidCookOfficial.com. David, after winning season seven, went on to sell over 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album which entered the Billboard charts at #3 and the digital album charts at #1, marking the best debut from an American Idol winner since 2006, or when Carrie Underwood debuted.
