Jacob Lusk proved some songs are just not meant to be performed in a competition when he chose Michael Jacksonâ€™s â€œMan In The Mirrorâ€ at the American Idol season 10 Top 9 live show dedicated to songs from the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame on Wednesday (April 6)- watch video below.
WTH! What just happened? That performance was Jacobâ€™s poorest performance on Idol, but he was only praised by the judges. I donâ€™t even know why we need to hear those three, if they cannot do their job by offering some constructive criticism once in a while. Jennifer Lopez said Jacob can do anything (no, he canâ€™t!), while Randy Jackson praised him for believing in himself.
Steven Tyler said that was beautiful (this judge is like a broken record!). Seriously? Jacob decided to not sing Marvin Gayeâ€™s â€œLetâ€™s Get Itâ€ because it went against his morals or something. Then, Jacob hits the stage to sing one of the most beautiful songs ever and he canâ€™t stop shaking his hipsâ€¦ UGH.
Jacob also seems to be lacking modesty. Thatâ€™s what happens when you are always told you are fantastic and beautiful. According to Jacob, if he lands in the bottom 3, itâ€™s not because he sang bad, itâ€™s â€œbecause everybody in America wasnâ€™t ready to look at themselves in the mirrorâ€. WHAT? Excuse me. Just for that comment, Iâ€™d be more than happy to see Jacob get the boot tonight.
