Jacob Lusk Shows a Softer Side With All That Vocal Power on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Jacob Lusk, 'American Idol'Jacob Lusk has given us powerful gospel-sounding performances week after week on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). But this time, he switched it up a little by tackling Heart. 'Alone' is one of their most diverse songs, requiring both the powerhouse vocals we know Lusk can handle, and the more tender moments that he's been holding back on.

In this performance, though, he wrapped the powerful middle parts of the song in beautifully tender moments at the top and the bottom. It was a much-needed showcase of a gentler side to his voice, to let viewers know he's more than the big voice we've seen thus far.

Randy Jackson was thrilled with this side of his voice. "At the end, when you got so tender and you caressed it," he told Lusk. "And you didn't overpower it, it was genius, dude."

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Is it just me? Or does this guy simply sound bad. Go ahead...close your eyes and listen. The guy simply sounds bad. Don't be surprised if he gets voted off before he reaches the top five. I know he tries hard, but he really does not sound very good at all. Is it just me?

If he wants to win, he needs to sing "Stout Hearted Men" from the New Moon. Then we can see if he is as good as Nelson Eddy.
