Despite the controversy, critics praised Cook for choosing versions of songs that fit his vocal style.
Cook's arrangements of "Hello," "Little Sparrow," "Always Be My Baby," "All I Really Need Is You," "Baba O'Riley," "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" were original arrangements, and his rendition of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" was also highly praised with judge Paula Abdul saying that his version of the song could be on a movie soundtrack.
