American Idol Fan Girls Teach Nigel Lythgoe How to SQUEE

This is pretty hilarious. Fan girls teach American Idol producer, Nigel Lythgoe, how to squee. No. Really!

When Nigel revealed that there was a possibility that David Cook, would perform on the show, the season 7 winner’s fans responded with a squee. Nigel seemed to have no idea what they were talking about. But after a little prompting, Nigel was eventually queeing right along with them. What THEE EFF! Lulz.

Also, when asked if he believed Phillip Phillips was season 11’s correct winner. He felt Phillip had a stronger personality than Jessica Sanchez  for voters. Hm.

    I was watching it in real time. He seemed curiously fascinated by the topic.

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Slow clap to the Cookistas. I know some of them and I can attest that they get things done!

  • tierbee

    Hahahaha. Oh boy :)

  • wordnerdarchie

    Nice to see you here, Niko.  We love those Cookistas!

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE for David Cook!!!

    If Cook ends up as a guest on the show this season, I can’t wait for Seacrest to ask him about “sgueeee-ing.”

    @dizzyfeet Any chance of seeing David Cook this season?  … [Every possibility of that happening.]

    He’s been on Idol every season since winning in 2008, I believe it’s possible this year too, Sassycatz. DC has eight tweets since New Years, and all but one about the Race for Hope have writing songs as the subject…plus the latest Noise from the Boyz sounds as if the rest of them are converging on Nashville soon – so something could be up.

    Now, if there is any squeeing conversations, IDK. Nigel’s fascination with the subject is very amusing, though. Heh.

  • iani

    the latest Noise from the Boyz sounds as if the rest of them are converging on Nashville soon – so something could be up.

    It seems like something is happening soon In Nashville, that would be great news if what I’m thinking might be what they think to “cook” there in Nashville. So happy for him(DC) that 2012 was a good year and he earned 1M $.

  • Karen C

    I’m hoping the boyz are working together, maybe even on the album.

    I was happy to hear he earned  $1M,  that would have been the timeframe TLM was released, and he had the tour. 

  • Incipit

    I’m hoping the boyz are working together, maybe even on the album.

    That would be cool; or even if it’s a single for Idol – and Nigel isn’t just blowing smoke. If that’s the case, I think I would like to hear one of the Holy Hell Songs David just tweeted about. Heh. 

  • Karen C

    If that’s the case, I think I would like to hear one of the Holy Hell Songs David just tweeted about. Heh.

    I’m thinking it will be FHTZ.  I love that song and I can’t imagine loving a song now.  But that’s what I thought about his last two albums too :) 

    I think him doing the Asian promos might also be a sign that he’ll be on the show, why have him promote it there if he wasn’t going to be on it.

  • Incipit

    why have him promote it there if he wasn’t going to be on it.

    Very good point, Karen C. They paid him to do that commercial, and the PR for StarWorld Asia, so I’ll guess Idol is taking that Ambassador thing seriously. IMO.

    (And I still want to hear at least one of the Holy Hell Songs. *snerk*) 

  • Karen C

     I’ll guess Idol is taking that Ambassador thing seriously. IMO.

    I think he’s a wonderful ambassador for the show :)

    (And I still want to hear at least one of the Holy Hell Songs. *snerk*)

    Maybe after the album comes out, that could be a Q&A question for him.  I remember someone asked what was the line he was talking about when he said it was the best line he ever wrote, and it was from REM.

  • Incipit

    I remember that – but we have more of a clue this time – ‘they’ were written with Andy Skib ‘and’ Andy Waldeck both – there can’t be too many of these.

    I know I like Skib and DC together – I’m curious about Waldeck. Not because of the Daughtry drummer thing, but because he toured with Scott Stap on an acoustic tour, and did guitar and back up Vox on classic Creed songs.. I think I will like his sensibilities as a co-writer.

    OTOH, I will be happy to hear what “Firing Squad” sounds like too. I’m easy. Heh.

  • iani

    I’m hoping the boyz are working together, maybe even on the album.

    In my imaginary scenario, thinking of the boys’ twitter exchanges, DC is ready now for a new song, maybe for AI or even a single, I don’t really think they get together to start recording the album now. Nick seems that is not coming, maybe DC has a new drummer now, interesting that Devin might stay with David, isn’t he a busy guy there in LA?  I don’t know if there is a label or not, but he really needs one to help him having an album in stores, a single sent to radio stations… If everything is set, the song/single has to be out by April, early May(because of AI), the album maybe in summer like August, even a short tour before the end of the year, Oct-Dec maybe more next year… His planes might be completely different and different strategies, but definitely we have a DC album this year.
    Reading some comments about how his album might sound, I think it might be more like DCTR, eclectic, he likes to experience new sounds, so a little bit of country, a little bit of R&R might be there… It would be OK for me a light country sound, R&B, pop, maybe some tunes on Adele-verge or his one thinking of Permanent, GTTG, but no folk, jazz, “Americana”, please, not because I don’t like those genres, his voice is strong and articulate not made for those styles IMO.,…Can’t wait for some new music to hear!

    Considering that Cook is vehemently not a fan of Creed, I don’t think that’s why he wrote with him.

    Since I myself am notably unimpressed with Creed, both personally (at least as far as Stapp is concerned) and professionally (at least as far as the very boring, uninspired singles), I’m hoping any influence that Waldeck brings is fresher and more melodically inventive than “classic” Creed.

  • Incipit

    Sure. Considering that I wasn’t talking about why David wrote with Andy Waldeck, an unknowable unless one of them says, I was talking about why I think ‘I’ may like Waldeck’s sensibilities as a co-writer, I feel completely secure in agreeing with you, standtotheright. I think. *snerk*

    I’m going to be more interested in any co-writer who has undiluted Rock antecedents…and curious about the results…personal preference.

  • standtotheright

    And then one gets into the debate of what is “undiluted” rock. I don’t go in for rock snobbery, but many of those who do would not consider what Creed did to be undiluted anything. In fact, given your disinterest in CCM, I’m surprised that you haven’t noted that much of the criticism (by which I mean dedicated, rather than pejorative, judgment) of their work notes that their lyrics and compositional choices are similar to that of many bands that would headline at Cornerstone.

  • Incipit

    And then one gets into the debate of what is “undiluted” rock

    Heh. Only if they want to, standtotheright, only if they want to. 

    Speaking of “want to” – Seems you want to talk about Creed, and I want to talk about Andy Waldeck and his possible influences as a co-writer with David Cook and Andy Skib – and what are being called the Holy Hell songs. That is two different conversations, for sure. Creed is only peripherally of interest in the conversation I am having, as a part of Waldeck’s resume’. The conversation you are having seems to be about Creed and CCM, and someone’s idea that they had a consonance??

    Now, ‘given my disinterest in CCM’ – I would be surprised if you were surprised that I had to Google your reference to Cornerstone, *wink* but I have now added to my very small store of CCM knowledge. So thanks. Truly sorry to read Cornerstone shut down in 2012, if that was music you enjoyed..

    In my conversation, I hope to hear one of those Holy Hell songs from Cook, Skib and Waldeck on Idol this season, because there is a chance they may rock..and all three of them know how to rock. If one of them were to be replaced with say, Claude Kelly as a co-writer – my anticipation would be considerably diminished. 

    But as I said, I’m also up to hear “Firing Squad”, a co-write with D.Cook/D.Hodges/S.Miller (not ‘that’ Steve Miller), because I’m easy. Although I wouldn’t buy a notion that having a preference makes anyone a snob, I also don’t think you meant to say, or imply that.

    It’s just that I’m not really in that Creed/CCM conversation of yours, like you aren’t really in mine…NBD. Sorry about that. 

    JMO. Of Course.

  • Karen C

    Since this is a squeeing about David Cook thread, I just want to add that it was 5 years ago that we first saw his audition on Idol.   I loved his songs on the show more than I ever had anyone else, and I loved his original music when I heard it.  I’m very proud to be a fan of his.  

  • standtotheright

    It’s just that I’m not really in that Creed/CCM conversation of yours, like you aren’t really in mine…NBD. Sorry about that.

    Well, since you claimed that Waldeck’s resume with Creed was giving him rock points in your estimation, I thought that pointing out that other people don’t give that band many rock points was relevant to setting expectations.

    To be very clear, my opinion is that a rock-leaning singer-songwriter who writes with an intuitive and clever pop-leaning or country-leaning singer songwriter is more likely to create a good rock song in those circumstances than a rock-leaning singer songwriter who writes with a bland and conventional, albeit rock-leaning, singer-songwriter.

    I am not, for the record, claiming that Waldeck is bland or conventional. He’s worked on other projects that apparently received some acclaim and that I’m more interested in researching. I am very explicitly claiming that using the Creed association to suggest that a given songwriter is a partner worth getting excited about is not an assertion that would convince most music listeners, or even many rock listeners, outside of dedicated Creed fans.

    If Cook thinks the songs are “holy hell” worthy, that’s a sufficient data point. And I would feel the same way if he said that about a Claude Kelly or Joy Williams or Jamie XX cowrite.

    (And for the record, my awareness of Cornerstone is through friends who have attended, not personal experience.)
