David Cook Gets Emotional On ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’

While certain past American Idol winners are jumping into reality TV in the saddest ways possible, others are still taking (what passes for) the high road. David Cook was on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last night, helping build a home for the Cowan family. Twelve-year-old Kori Cowan suffers from blood disorder, but still finds time to raise money to battle cancer. David, you may remember, lost his own brother Adam to cancer just a year after winning American Idol, so the cause is extremely personal to him. Break out the Kleenex and check out some clips from the show after the jump.

David Cook gets down to work, helping build the Cowan’s new house and meeting with some young cancer patients.

David and Kori host an auction, with the proceeds going to the fight against cancer.

MJsbigblog has all three parts of the show, including the debut of the new house, as well as some bonus footage. Though we’re dissapointed David didn’t get nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy (or any Grammys for that matter), who needs awards when you’ve got this much heart?
