Thia Megia and Jacob Lusk on American Idol Live
Thia Megia and Jacob Lusk perform live on American Idol tonight.
It seems like American Idol 2011 Elton John week is perfectly made for Jacob Lusk and Thia Megia. The two are heading in different directions on the show with Jacob getting loads of praise from the judges week in and week out and Thia struggling and ending up in the bottom three last week. She will need to impress if she wants to avoid that same fate this week.
Thia Megia is very likable and I think that has carried her so far because she has been decent, but not great in the last few weeks. I have a feeling this week might be her coming out. Elton John is right in her range and he has plenty of great songs to choose from. I look for her to sing “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting.” It is one of those songs you would never expect her to sing and she could make it fun and surprise people with it. I think it would be a shock to the American Idol audience to see cute little Thia Megia singing about kicking ass and taking names.
Jacob Lusk continues to impress and seems to get better by the week. He loves the big emotional songs so I look for him to continue down that path with “Your Song.” It is a song that is big, powerful and right in Jacob’s wheelhouse. I think he would knock this out of the park and could make this song a bluesy, gospel revival of a performance.
Tune in tonight at 8PM on FOX to watch all the American Idol contestants do their best Elton John and find out who does well and who crashes and burns.
