Points for originality? Hope so

David Cook sings "Always Be My Baby," surprising Mariah Carey by not sounding anything like her.

Randy stands up for the first time all season (or so he says), and Paula delivers her highest praise, "That song could be in a movie soundtrack right now."

"It was like coming out of karaoke hell into a breath of fresh air," says Simon, declaring this "the sign of a great potential artist -- someone who takes risks."

Seemed pretty good to me, too, but given the history, I'm afraid that by tomorrow someone will have explained to me exactly where Cook's arrangement came from.
