David Cook to Appear on SNL

Attention all David Cook fans!

The American Idol winner will be performing on Saturday Night Live this weekend, with host Ben Affleck. It's bound to be an awesome show!

"I grew up watching it like everybody else so to be apart of it in any capacity is obviously a huge honor," he says of getting his moment on SNL, before adding that he's "really nervous."

"I'm going to make sure my shoelaces are tied so I don't trip and fall on the floor!"

David will be singing his new single "Leave a Light On" off his brand new, self-titled album, which drops on Nov.18 (Christmas list!).

So, what to expect from the new set of tunes? Dave says it's "eclectic rock" with some songs featuring lots of guitar riffs and others that are "very piano driven and delicate."

"I got to show some different aspects of who I am as a person," he says about the upcoming album.

Even with all his success, Dave says he's just the same old guy he was before he won the AI title. "I think in one sense everything's changed but in another sense nothing has," says the champ. "There's all these different things around me that I didn't have a year ago. I was able to furnish a home and get a nice car and be able to treat my family to some of the things that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to do."

But, he says, "I'm still a goober from the Midwest. Now I've just got a few more resources. I don't feel like the show changed me at all."

Yeah, a hot, sexy goober with a voice like heaven.
