Few contestants in this season of American Idol 2011 have been smothered with the praise that the judges have heaped on Jacob Lusk. His over the top style, big voice and willingness to wear his emotions on his sleeve have made him a standout this season and tonight he tackles with big song that could bring the house down if he pulls it off. Singing “I believe I Can Fly” By R. Kelly is somewhat of a risk. Jacob has the chops to sing it, but if he goes too big, the song could become too much of a show tune and lose its emotional core.

Jacob Lusk was showered with praise last week as the judges called him the next coming of Luther Vandross and were nearly brought to tears by him. I will be honest, I admit that he has a great voice, but his delivery can annoy me sometimes and I know I am not the only one that feels that way. Jacob will need to reign himself in and show people he can connect with an audience and not just try to blow them away. Still, I think he will do well tonight on American Idol 2011. I think this is the right song at the right time and he should pull it off.
