American Idol Live – James Durbin versus Jacob Lusk
James Durbin might be the most out of place of the Top 6 going into this week of American Idol. It is not only Carole King week, but all the contestants will sing solo then sing a duet with another cast member. There are only two girls left on the show which means two guys will have to sing together. That could be awkward and funny in and of itself. So I say why not crank up the fun and pair Jacob Lusk and James Durbin together.
Jacob Lusk loves the big dramatic songs and so I’m confident he will be able to find a Carole King song that will allow him to do his vocal gymnastics and show off his range. When it comes to the duet, however, it is almost more important to harmonize with our partner and work as a team instead of just showing of your range and power. I’m not so sure he is capable do doing that, but it will be fun to watch.
James Durbin likes the big notes as well, but he and Jacob are at opposite ends of the musical spectrum. I have no idea if he and Jacob Lusk could find a happy middle and locate a place to mesh their voices together, but I have a feeling it would be a very unique process. For that matter, I have no idea what James Durbin has planned for his solo song. When I think Carole King I don’t really think heavy metal and hard rock.
It could be a wild, crazy week on American Idol. It may be brilliant, it could be a disaster, but either way it should be interesting to watch. Tune in tonight at 8PM on Fox to see who sings what songs and what the duet pairings end up being. Will James Durbin end up with Jacob Lusk?
