Idol Headlines for 11/02/08

Apparently David Cook is more popular than John Mccain ¦so says google trends

Tonight John Mccain & David Cook were both on Saturday Night Live. (David Cook is a Singer from American Idol – in case ya didnt know – I didnt lol) ¦

Lookin for a topic to blog about, I head on over to Google Trends, and what did I find? …David Cook #1, …Mccain SNL #2. Which says to me that people care more about American Idol
, than they do about who will be the next President. Of course there were two google trends listings for Mccain, the other being …Mccain Saturday Night Live at #12. Can you add the two together and make Mccain come out ahead?

David Archuleta, the runner-up of this year’s “American Idol, ” is in Cincinnati, where he’s having anything but a superstar moment. The squeaky-clean, occasionally bashful and unconditionally adorable singer is appearing on a radio show with students from an all-girls school who collected 64 jugs filled with pennies to benefit a cancer charity.

If that seems like an odd way to spend a morning, it gives you just a taste of Archuleta’s bizarre life these days. But then again, he’s not the only “American Idol” vet named David for whom life has become an affair worthy of a “Twilight Zone” episode

‘Flyover rock’ rocks the heartland

Brian Howes gets a little hot under the black-leather collar when asked who listens to his kind of rock music. Speaking on a BMI-sponsored songwriter’s panel before last year’s Grammy Awards, the Vancouver-based producer, who has co-written hits for Hinder, Chris Daughtry, David Cook and Puddle of Mudd, sent an emotional shout-out to the common fan. * “I call it the hosers in Canada, the rednecks, ” he said. “The flyover zones. The people in Middle America seem to still buy records . . . You can sit on the back of your flatbed Ford, have a six-pack, crank some AC/DC and throw on some Daughtry or Hinder.”

David Cook plays …Light On on …SNL

…American Idol winner David Cook just performed his new single …Light On on …Saturday Night Life. The singer/songwriter/guitarist, who lived in Tulsa before competing on …Idol, is the musical guest on …SNL this week.

Cook was in terrific voice and he seemed much more comfortable singing the grungy power ballad than crooning the sugar-coated 2008 …Idol theme …Time of My Life. It sounds like he has a strong band backing him, too.

Plus, it doesnt hurt that the man is really easy on the eyes.

Lionel Richie to sing on “Dancing With the Stars” results show, which will air Wednesday

“Dancing With the Stars” serves up its regular dance episode at 8 p.m. Monday, but the ejection won’t come until Wednesday.

The presidential election will preempt regular programming on most broadcast networks Tuesday night. The CW is an exception: New episodes of “90210” and “Privileged” will air.

The “Dancing” results show will air at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Lionel Richie will sing “Dancing on the Ceiling” and “Good Morning.”

The eighth couple will be ejected. Daytime legend Susan Lucci seems most vulnerable.

Dance Center also returns on Wednesday’s show. Kenny Mayne and Jerry Rice from season two will take part along with head judge Len Goodman.
