Cowell’s remarks to “Extra” may have been premature. Chikezie Eze picked “I Believe to My Soul” (written by Ray Charles and made famous by Donny Hathaway) and knocked it out of the park. “You looked better, sounded better,” Cowell said. “It was a clever choice in song.”
David Cook picked Free’s “All Right Now” and his performance was just all right. Cowell felt Cook was “solid, believable,” but lacked charisma.
Archuleta sings us out with John Lennon’s Imagine.

Cowell said the song choice was “risky, but it worked,” adding “right now, you’re the one to beat.”
