David to Sing “Crazy” This Tuesday
Official announcements are now posted for David’s appearance on Salt Lake City’s NBC affiliate KSL channel 5 at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 15th. David will appear on the station’s mid-morning show, Studio 5, and is scheduled to perform Crazy by Gnarls Barkley.
As most of you know, David sang this as part of his Hollywood audition for American Idol, but broadcast rights could not be secured and the performance never aired. Viewers did see the judges’ reactions to the performance, however, which included some of the highest praise that David–or anyone-received during the entire season.
Crazy was the first single from Gnarls Barkley, a musical collaboration between Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo, from their 2006 debut album “St. Elsewhere.” It became a top-ten hit throughout Europe, North America and Oceania in the first half of 2006, reaching number one on the singles charts in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Canada, New Zealand and other countries. The song won a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance, and was also nominated as Record of the Year. It won a 2006 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Song, and was named the best song of 2006 by Rolling Stone and by the Village Voice’s annual Pazz & Jop critics poll.
The KSL channel homepage includes a panel labeled “KSL On Demand,” but the only streaming media appears to be their radio station.
