Oprah’s Olympic-themed show features 175 athletes and is taping today at the Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago Millennium Park.

Cook skipped the after-show party last night in Green Bay, WI so he could fly out to Chicago to tape the show today.

“Time of My Life” has managed to stay on the charts all summer, assisted by NBC using the song in their nightly re-caps during the Beijing Olympics. The little coronation song that could, “Time of My Life” will get yet another sales boost when David performs it on the mighty Oprah Winfrey Show.
