American Idol’s David Cook spent most of his Tuesday night inside a hospital after experiencing heart palpitations and high blood pressure shortly after he performed Dolly Parton’s “Little Sparrow.” TMZ reports that DC was released a few hours, but that he’s still not completely 100%.
DC was not feeling well earlier in the day and the Idol medics told him his blood pressure was too high and he should go to the hospital. DC decided to wait it out. After the show, he was driven to a private doctor who gave him some meds. David, keep those pills away from Paula! She’ll try and seduce you for them, but don’t fall for her tricks!
A source told TMZ that the strains of the competition and family health issues could be the reason for David’s high blood pressure. David’s brother is suffering from cancer and reportedly had a setback.
On a happier DC note, his hair looked hot last night. He finally took some scissors to that combover.

TMZ also reports that Ryan Gaycrest had issues of his own last night. He apparently ran into a wall and busted his knee. He was given ice packs and wobbled through the show. The dudes at Gaycrest’s local glory hole are probably lighting “get well soon” candle for his knee.
And if that wasn’t enough reality show health drama! Derek Hough (HO) from Dancing with the Stars was also taken to the hospital last night for a neck injury. Wait…Gaycrest has a busted knee and Derek has a busted neck? 69 gone wrong!
