American Idol season seven winner David Cook was approached to be the frontman of hard rock band Hinder, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Cook turned down the offer so he can continue to work on his own music, but is said to have been “very interested” in filling in for singer Austin Winkler, who recently entered rehab for the second time.

“David Cook was at the top of our list,” Hinder manager Kevin “Chief” Zaruk of Chief Music Management tells THR. And fan favorite Cook wasn’t the only Idol the band reached out to – season 10’s James Durbin was also in the running, Zaruk reveals. “We would’ve loved to have either, but the timing didn’t work out.”

The Oklahoma-based Hinder is best known for the 2006 hit “Lips of an Angel,” which reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart — and, incidentally, was also performed by Idol season nine winner Lee Dewyze. The band announced on July 10 that Winkler is on “temporary leave for personal reasons.” In his stead, Jared Weeks from Saving Abel will fill in, occasionally switching off with Marshal Dutton from Drankmore, who co-produced Hinder’s latest album, Welcome to the Freakshow, with co-founder and drummer Cody Hanson.

Hinder kicks off their summer tour tonight in West Fargo, ND.

As for Cook, THR hears he has another offer on the table: a recording contract from Verve, which is owned by Universal Music Group and run by veteran producer David Foster, who has worked with his share of Idol alums — season two’s Ruben Studdard, season five’s Katharine McPhee and season seven’s Michael Johns, among them — and also happens to be husband to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Foster. Cook is “considering” the terms of the record deal, says a source.

A rep for Cook did not respond to THR’s request for comment.

Durbin is also in the studio working on the follow-up to his 2011 debut, Memories of a Beautiful Disaster.

Winkler is said to be doing well, having taken the initiative to check himself into rehab “because he felt like he was slipping,” Zaruk explains, adding that it’s not uncommon for people with substance abuse problems to opt for a refresher course. “We just want him to get healthy and get happy.”

When you are a fan of both American Idol and playing the card game poker, you can’t help but see certain similarities between the two. I think it’s the unpredictable nature of the two that made me consider it in the first place, because in the way that no one could have predicted for certain that David Cook would have won American Idol, you can’t predict the winner of a poker game either.

Other similarities I noticed recently are:

There’s always an odds on favourite

People will always try to predict the winner, based on the probability of their defeat or victory. In both American Idol and poker this can be an issue, because there’s a very good chance a player or contestant’s performance won’t live up to the expectations of the general public. Sometimes the pressure alone is enough to defeat the odds on favourite. On average though, it is more likely the top dog Texas Hold’em star will win than an American Idol contestant, because in a game of poker you are relying entirely on your own skill and nerve. Even if they are playing the game on American Idol viewers have too much say in the fate of the singer for there to be a guarantee the chosen singer will win. I’m sure it’s the same in singing competitions in the UK or France as well.

You’re in the spotlight

Whether you are competing in American Idol, or participating in a poker tournament, you are being put in the spotlight. It feels on both occasions like you are up on a pedestal, especially if you are the odds on favourite to win. For example, let’s imagine we have a poker player called Henri Blanchet, who is always the odds on favourite to win every tournament he enters, he’ll be in the spotlight more so than every other player in the Paris casino. Every player has the spotlight for a few moments when they consider and make their moves though. In American Idol, you have that three minute slot to shine.

You have to act a certain way

As much as we like to think the contestants on American Idol are genuinely being themselves on the show, the likelihood is they are portraying an agreeable version of themselves to camera. We all change our behaviour when we feel like we’re being watched, and this self consciousness transfers to the personalities we see on the screen. I have no doubt that even the reality stars on French television are not always themselves, it isn’t just a US phenomenon. It’s the same when a person plays poker. You’re portraying the version of yourself which you want other people to see, not necessarily the real you. For example, you might be acting like you’re more confident than you are, or you create a character around yourself to seem more formidable at the table.

“American Idol” season seven winner David Cook performed in Singapore last week for the third anniversary of ION Orchard and was in the city to promote the upcoming season of the reality show.

The rock star, who performed in Jakarta for the first time in July, played an intimate acoustic set on Thursday night. He entertained his fans with his wit and humor on stage and impressed the audience with an impeccable performance that highlighted his wide vocal range.

Besides delivering his best-known hits, such as “The Time of My Life,” the 29-year-old artist also threw in a handful of surprises, including a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

At the end of the performance, he was in for a surprise himself, when organizers brought out a durian pancake for Cook to try on stage. Judging from his face after taking one bite, it is safe to say that should he come back to Southeast Asia, it won’t be for the “king of fruits.”

Prior to the show, Cook sat down with a handful of journalists from Indonesia to talk about his upcoming album, his memories of Jakarta, and why charity work is so important to him.

The Season 7 winner of ‘American Idol’ taps into his sensitive side for this sophomore album of inspiring and mature hard rock. AOL has posted up the entire album (all 12 tracks) for you to listen to HERE.

Last week Kelly Clarkson came home. This week, it was David Cook’s turn.

The season 7 winner returned to the American Idol stage during Thursday’s elimination show to debut the first single off his upcoming album, This Loud Morning.

Ryan Seacrest introduced the rocker as “someone who never felt the sting of rejection on this stage,” before Cook sang “The Last Goodbye.”

“It’s great to be back,” he said after the performance.

The Idol then shared some news with the roaring crowd. “I’m going to be involved for the third year in a row, actually, with Race for Hope in Washington D.C.” Cook, 28, said. “It’s a 5K walk/run and all the proceeds go to an organization called ABC Squared [Accelerated Brain Cancer Cure or] that I’ve been involved with now for a while to help find a cure for brain cancer.”

Cook’s older brother Adam, who was often in the front row cheering him on during his winning season, lost a decade-long battle against brain cancer in 2009.

When Seacrest said he noticed Cook’s mother Beth in the crowd Thursday night, the singer explained: “I told her that we were coming back to play the new single and it will be really interesting,” he said. “[She said], ‘I just want to meet Steven Tyler, that’s it.’ So, I figured while I have the forum we should … Do you want to say hi or something?”

At that point Cook’s mother got out of her seat and went to greet the Idol judge. They embraced and even shared a kiss on the cheek.

“Do you approve?” Seacrest asked.

Cook shook his head and said, jokingly, “We’re going to have a conversation when the cameras go off.”
