David Cook, “Billie Jean”: 20+
I told you that David would rock out some obscure cover for us and boy, did he ever (Chris Cornell, by the way. Thanks, Ryan, for telling me so I didn’t have to look it up.). That was awesome. Since I already gave Michael a 20, I had to add the plus since this performance was worlds better. However, I have to disagree with Randy saying that David is the most original contestant ever. That would still be Blake. Remember he came up with his own arrangements. David is copying others—which is brave and creative, but not original.
