American Idol: Syesha Mercado’s and David Cook do the judges bidding

SHARE American Idol: Syesha Mercado’s and David Cook do the judges bidding

For Syesha Mercado, Randy Jackson picked Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.”

“I know she’s really young, hot, talented and in charge. This is the kind of record she can make and be successful with,” Jackson said of his choice.

She looks and sounds confident.

“I thought that would work well on you. You did an amazing job on it,” Jackson said.

David Cook has Simon Cowell to blame for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” The arrangement is a little to high for him. And just when you think he can’t go any higher, he does.

“I thought it was actually one of your best performances to date,” Cowell said.
