David Cook performed a Dolly Parton hit Little Sparrow on Tuesday night's American Idol show. He experienced what he described as heart palpitations afterward and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

After the live show, the other Idol contestants sat on the bleachers to watch Jordin Sparks, last years Idol winner and R&B singer Chris Brown perform their new single No Air. This was a taped segment that will be shown at a later date.

Representatives for the show indicate that Cook had a problem with his blood pressure. He was treated and released and is reportedly doing just fine.
