David Cook slam-dunked it! The American Idol winner was on hand to sing the national anthem before game three of the Celtics-Lakers NBA championship series last night -- and he was shaking in his sneakers!
"The nerves are way worse [than on Idol]," DC told reporters of performing the Star Spangled Banner. "It's the one song you don't want to mess up. I'm going to try not to notice Jack Nicholson sitting in the front row and think about the lyrics."
But, man, did he nail it! I got those good goosebumps up and down my arms when he hit the high notes.
After his performance, David admitted to People.com, "That was the scariest thing I have ever done."
The downside to this story is that his new chick, Kimberly Caldwell, was on hand to cheer him on and show her support. I'm totally hating on her in a very jealous way.
