'Something Pitchy:' Who Is Voting for Jacob Lusk?! Will Jimmy Iovine Judge Next Season?

by Hilary Rothing, posted Apr 29th 2011 1:17AM
After some technical issues last night, we're back for a super-Pitchy discussion of the Top 6 performances and tonight's elimination results. And with Casey Abrams gone, we're left to wonder just who Jacob Lusk's fanbase is? Make yourselves known!

Also on our minds, tonight, is Jimmy Iovine's growing role on 'Idol.' Will he be back as a judge next season? And what's up with Randy's hot and cold attitude about Haley Reinhart? Find out what I, Rickey Yaneza (Rickey.org) and MJ Santilli (MJ's Big Blog) have to say about all the 'Idol' issues of the day in this post-Top 6 edition of AOL's 'American Idol' talk show, 'Something Pitchy!'

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

I am a fan of Jacob and I enjoy Scotty and Lauren as well but with all honesty I FEEL THAT JACOB HELD BACK DUE THE WRONG GUIDANCE AND INSULTING AND DOUBTFUL FEEDBACK HE RECEIVED FROM "that guy JIMMY'' BUT THATS OK BECAUSE JACOB GOT A HIGHER POWER THAN THIS AND IT IS '' JESUS '" AND HE WILL SOON PROSPER BECAUSE OF HIS KINDNESS AND HIS LOVE FOR CHRIST AS WELL AS FOR OTHERS.

I am a Jacob fan. I think he has the most talent of anyone in the group. I also like Scotty and Lauren. I was delighted to see Casey go and only hope that Haley will be next.

Jacob will be gone this week and join the dustbin of idol history never to be heard of again.

I am a Jacob fan..and PROUD OF IT!! I love the way he sings. He has plenty of stage presence, more so than some others. I guess you think Scott McLeery has stage presence? He is the only one I see that just sits or stands there. Jacob has a lot of fans. Everyone that watches Idol aren't on the internet. While you are on the internet posting your garbage about Jacob, his fans are voting. Get over yourselves!!

..no need to insult Scotty just to defend Jacob! Clearly you didn't watch the video, they're not (not usually) fans of Scotty either. Personally, *I* like any/all of the contestants when they're interacting with each other, that's when their chemistry shines the best!

I am a huge fan of Jacob! He is amazing! I feel more from him than any other of the wannabes. He reminds me of Jennifer Holiday! I love how he cares so much about every note he sings! Everyone is boring compared to him!

Jacob can sing or he wouldn't be there. But he is nowhere the performer or as talented as Casey. Jacob like Pia does not carry the stage presence of the other contestants. Seriously consider this, would you spend your hard eraned money to go to a concert and watch the performer stand in on place all thru the concert. No, it makes for a very boring concert.

Speaking of Jacob's appearance, have any of you looked at yourselves?

It was not a suit. It was sportswear. He was being fashion forward with the preppy look, which is the spring trend in men's fashion. Yes I would wear the outfit. It was fun and it got a lot of attention. BTW, he is still there in spite of what Jimmy said.

By asking who Jacob's fan base is, is really a self indulgent myopic view of the music industry. There is still an audience for R&B and gospel out there. Get over yourselves!
