‘Idol’s’ Jacob Lusk Sings ‘Man in the Mirror’ — Indulgent and Ridiculous
I think it’s safe to say that Jacob Lusk should start to pack his bags. In case you missed his performance on American Idol tonight, I’ll educate you on his major misstep. In the video before his song, Jacob explained why he chose to sing Man in the Mirror, and he said, “if I end up in the bottom three it won’t be because I sang the song bad . . . it will be because everybody in America wasn’t ready to look at themselves in the mirror.” No — I’m not kidding. He actually said that. I’m sure I don’t need to articulate why this is ridiculous, but I’ll do it anyways in case Jacob is reading this. Jacob will go home tomorrow, not because I didn’t want to look in the mirror (in fact, I do that all the time). He’ll go home because he butchered a Michael Jackson song. I’d also like to add that Simon Cowell would never have let Jacob get away with that video. He would have mentioned it during his critique. This show is dead without him.
