Although American Idol is primarily for fresh talent to prove what they have to be the next “American Idol”, it doesn’t mean more “seasoned” performers don’t pass up their chance to perform on the show.
Last night [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] got On The Floor and rocked the house!
Jacob Lusk was eliminated on last night’s American Idol after he unsuccessfully attempted both parts of No Air, the duet between [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jordin Sparks[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm], and a tender rendition of Love Hurts, the classic song made famous by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nazareth[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Roy Orbison[/lastfm].
“I got to share a little bit with America, and I think America’s fallen in love with me,” said Lusk after his elimination. “Now I can go and put out that good-feeling R&B music that reminds you of Luther (Vandross) or those great old singers.”
A tearful Lauren Alaina joined Lusk as one of the bottom two vote-getters. Besides Alaina, the other remaining finalists are over-the-top 22-year-old rocker James Durbin of Santa Cruz, Calif.; deep-voiced 17-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery of Garner, N.C.; and bluesey 20-year-old singer Haley Reinhart, of Wheeling, Ill.
