David Cook Returns to Idol after Hospitalization
David Cook was back on the American Idol set Wednesday for the results show, a day after he was briefly hospitalized with high blood pressure and heart palpitations.

Appearing relaxed and happy, Cook laughed and talked with the other contestants, showing no signs of the symptoms that sent him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Tuesday after he performed Dolly Parton's "Little Sparrow."

"The whole thing kind of got blown out of proportion," Cook told host Ryan Seacrest. "I have high blood pressure, and it spiked, so they took me to the nearest hospital. But I'm cool. I'm not going anywhere." -- Jed Dreben and Monica Rizzo.
