I've had a feeling since he started mentioning this "surprise" that it would have something to do with Idol. especially now that it's going to air on the 3rd which is a thursday.

Yeah, the AI boot song is the odds-on favorite guess. I hope so - that would mean millions of people, including US!, would get to hear him sing every week again! Yahoo!

If he did get the boot song, it's perfect timing. What a great marketing tool for his new album. Millions of people will hear him every week, and remember what an amazing voice he has. Hopefully that will translate to album sales.

On February 12th, RCA recording artist David Cook sent out a cryptic tweet promising an "extra treat" for his fans that would hit TV in the coming weeks. Immediately there was some speculation that he might be recording Season 10's Elimination Song.

Now, it looks more likely than ever. Cook just tweeted, "Was just informed by TPTB that that "extra treat" I worked on last week will air on march 3rd!"

March 3rd is the first official results show of Season 10, where the 2011 finalists will be revealed.

David is hard at work finalizing his highly anticipated sophomore album, due out sometime this year.

Does he ever refer to RCA as TPTB? I, for instance, only use term TPTB for Idol peeps, so it might be true Smile

I so want February to be over now.

I hope it's every week till May! But... I hate to ask this question: Isn't there a boot song for the semi-finalists that lasts for two weeks, then they move on to the long-haul elimination song for ten weeks as the finalists depart?
I'm as excited as anything, but greedy. Very Happy

Copying over my comments from the twitter talk thread this morning:

Quote :
My guess is that it's either the boot song, or they had him record a song to play over a montage of the top 24 right before they cut them down to the top 12/13 which happens that night... like they had Daughtry do "What About Now" over a montage in Season 7. My gut is leaning toward the boot song, only because they went to the expense of having him record the song, having it produced and mixed, and that seems like it might be excessive for something they are going to only use once. He has plenty of great songs they could use over a montage that wouldn't have needed to be specially recorded, which would have kept the costs down. But who knows how they are thinking?

The only other (non-Idol) related possibility I can see is if it's a promo for March Madness - which will start 2 weeks after the third. But again, I think they would license one of his available songs for that, rather than go to the expense of recording something new. He has a ton of songs that work well for sporting events, as we've seen in the past.

So boot song or song over a montage, I'm expecting this to be something airing on Idol. (Especially since you know he at least skims his @replies, and with all the speculation on twitter and in the various Idol blogs that it's Idol related, I'd think he would say it wasn't Idol related if it wasn't.) And either way I am thrilled to know that in just a little over a week, we'll be hearing him singing something new - new to us anyway, as it could be a cover.


As to the earlier short lived boot song, didn't I read about some guy on twitter, whose song has already been used and his fans were using that as a promotion of some kind? I think he was French. (I have only watched a couple of the audition shows so far this year, so I can't say for sure.) If that's true, I'm assuming that would be the early boot song you are refering to.

I wouldn't be so sure he'd deny it if it weren't true - it's much more of a tease if he leaves as many possibilities open as possible and we KNOW how much he loves to tease...

I have to agree that if they are taking the time and money to record something special just for exiting contestants, they'll use it all season, not just for the first few weeks.

I agree with this too. And also, if it IS, AI's boot song, obviously, TPTB wants it to be a surprise (as much as possible, lol), so David could not possibly be more accurate in his tweets. Also, as David is known as a big teaser, he's well suited to create the expectations and speculations it has aroused.

Another thing that's making me lean more and more towards it being the boot song or some song related to AI is that, given all the press this is having, if it were not something related to AI, AI's TPTB would have denied all rumours... Don't you think?

I agree with both of you - I have a deep feeling it will be the boot song.... and I'm getting so exicited with this possibility - cause it'll be AWESOME for the future of his career and also for us that will hear that heavenly voice every week !

Will David Cook sing Season 10 contestants back home?


By Brian Mansfield, USA TODAY


Singer David Cook arrives at the Rolling Stone Magazine American Music Awards Party in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010.
By Dan Steinberg, AP


David Cook has been tweeting about recording "something special" that will surface in the coming days, leading to a flurry of rumors that American Idol's Season 7 winner will have the show's elimination song this season.

"Was just informed by TPTB that that 'extra treat' I worked on last week will air on march 3rd!" David tweeted Monday. That date is the same as next week's results show, which will introduce Idol's Season 10 finalists.

The elimination songs, which accompany the departing contestants' highlight reels, began in the 2006 season with Daniel Powter's Bad Day. Other seasons have featured recordings by former Idols Daughtry, Ruben Studdard and Carrie Underwood.

My guess is that he will sing the boot song...but the song will not be his - it'll be another people song.

I'd love if it would be his song - and maybe he could release it as his single, but anything he puts his (heavenly) voice in - turns on awesome and ends being so HIS - no matter he wrote or not (eg: LO) !

The boot songs are frequently covers of other people's songs. Even if it's a new song, from the way I read the tweets, I don't think he has had anything to do with it beyond recording, so I'm not getting my hopes up that it's a song he wrote. I'm just excited to hear him sing something different!

It's not going to be his single... he's done recording everything for the album, and he had to go into the studio specifically to record this whatever it is. What would be really nice is if they put whatever it is up on itunes for download for charity... I think they did that with the boot song Carrie sang. Then he could have that and it would not interfere at all with his single release when that comes out.

Yes Jeannie !
I saw someone commenting at twitter about an article showing the guy who wrote the boot song - first I thought that was a signal that David will not be involved with the boot song. But now I see it can be the guy's song and David only singing it.
It's my fault always think about David as a songwriter singing his own songs.
He is a singer (one of the best ones AMOF) and sometimes he will sing other ones songs !
Anyway it will be A BLAST...AWESOME... Awww LoveAwww LoveAwww Love

Whatever it is will be awesome... because it will be David singing it.

I'm leaning towards the boot song, but trying to manage my expectations... I don't want to be upset if it isn't. It could well be some montage song as I mentioned earlier. I am pretty sure it's for Idol, and I do think there is a good possibility it's the boot song for the reasons I mentioned earlier... but everyone should keep in mind that until TPTB (or David) specifically announce it, we just don't know.

Simon Fuller has been working on the "kiss-off" track for #AmericanIdol this Season. I think it's great.

Well, well. If David's treat is the boot song, it's great new that Nigel likes it. He wasn't much of a fan of David's IIRC and I'd love to think David finally won him over!

^^^ I think so too, Stacy. And I don't really mind if, whatever this "treat" is, is a song written by David or not. I'm sure that, at some point, he will invited to make an appearance in this AI season performing his first single off of DCTR2 Very Happy

It would be really nice, as Jeannie says, if that "treat song" goes to charity.

If David does have the "Boot Song" we will be listening to it every week til May for the Finale Great

If it's the boot song... we're all guessing, and the signs look like it could be. But we really don't know yet.

However, we'll be hearing whatever it is in

Eight freaking days!!!!! [I feel like Kent SYTYCD now, lol]

I was just saying on Twitter that if this is something Idol-related, I would HOPE that snippets of the song can be heard in AI commercials or circulate on the news and people who don't watch Idol will have a chance to hear it. Means new fans. Means more money for Dave. Fingers Crossed!!!

I seriously am more anxious now (need an excuse to use the emote)
