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.
