American Idol: David Cook taken to hospital after the show

American Idol: David Cook taken to hospital after the show American Idol contestant David Cook delivered a great performance last night, but also scare his many fans when he had to be taken to the hospital after the show for what appears to be heart palpitations and high blood pressure. According to some reports, David Cook felt ill throughout the entire day, but managed to go on stage and did a great job. But after his song was over, Cook was taken to the hospital by a car, not by an ambulance as some reports indicated earlier. According to TMZ, the reason David Cook had to be rushed to the hospital had to do with the great deal of stress the American Idol is under, as his brother, Adam Cook, is currently battling cancer and suffered a setback within the last week. David Cook was treated with blood pressure medications and was released from the hospital shortly after he arrived. Last night David Cook did a great job singing Dolly Patron's "Little Sparrow" on the show but was later absent from the line-up when all the contestants returned to watch a performance by last year's winner Jordin Sparks and later we learned about his short visit to the hospital.

 Despite the setback, David Cook remains one of the top favorites to win American Idol, listed with odds 11/5 at the online bookmaker BodogLife. The favorite to win the talent show remains David Archuleta with odds 6/5. Archuleta sang "Smokey Mountain Memories" on Dolly Parton night and stunned the public and the judges. American Idol underdog is still Kristy Lee Cook, who sang "Coat of Many Colors" and is holding the odds 100/1 to win.
