Jacob Lusk of 'American Idol'
Hometown: Compton, CA
Currently Resides: Compton, CA
Our Overly Hasty First Impressions: Jacob Lusk can SING. No matter what else we say from here, let that first fact not be ignored. Dude can SING. But you'd have to go back many a moon to find the last African-American male with Jacob's vocal profile to have even an iota of success on "Idol." All the way back to George Huff? Maybe. Well, Jacob's better than George Huff. But he's also more "Ebenezer Baptist" than George Huff and you can expect to hear a lot of different codes for Jacob's particular church-influenced vocal style. It all means the same thing: Many voters are going to agree with Randy Jackson's contention that Jacob is among the best singers the show has ever had, but probably even more viewers are going to be turned off by his flamboyance. We'll see Jacob for a while.
