Simon said: "Blake, you're not the best singer in this competition. But you're the best entertainer I think we've had."
Sparks then sang Christina Aguilera's "Fighter." making Cowell happy. Nevertheless he noted that "the vocals were actually a bit shriek-y."
Lewis ditched his beatboxing for a cover of a Maroon 5 hit "She Will Be Loved." Cowell thought he had played it too safe.
Sparks' then took on Martina McBride's "Broken Wing" prompting Simon to exclaim, "Now, THAT was good."
In their final turn, both performed "This Is My Now," the tune picked by viewers in an online "American Idol" songwriting contest introduced this season.
"I thought it was all a little odd. ... It's just not a song that you would normally sing," said Cowell, judging Lewis' performance.
As for Sparks, however, judge Randy Jackson gushed: "You were the best singer tonight. You deserve it all, baby!"
Earlier Cowell said of Sparks and Lewis to the press: "I'm pleased for the two of them. They're nice kids. But I would have liked to have seen one of them up against the big singer."
