NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Zoey Cook, a Virginia native and recent New Orleans transplant, took the stage on Thursday in front of a worldwide audience.
She performed in front of "American Idol" voters for the first time Thursday.
Her song choice was a bit unorthodox, putting a zydeco twist on judge Keith Urban's "Somebody Like You."
"Joey it was fantastic," Urban told her. 'That's what artists do - you take a song and make it yours. It was perfect."
Cook is one of the season's top 12 female singers. Idol airs at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday on FOX 8.
