American Idol's Jacob Lusk Sings "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" on the Top 8 Show

Jacob Lusk, American Idol Season 10's 'King of Gospel', sings "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" by Simon and Garfunkel. The theme for the Top 8 Show is "Music from the Movies", and Jacob originally wanted to sing either "The Impossible Dream" or "You’ll Never Walk Alone", but producer Jimmy Iovine and the Black Eyed Peas' thought they sounded too corny. Jimmy suggested "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" from The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith, saying, "That was made for you. This is the perfect song for Jacob. He could really crush it tonight." Jacob was happy with Jimmy's suggestion, ""Bridge Over Troubled Waters" is a beautiful song, one of my favorites. I love this song. It's a very big song, hopefully America likes it."

Jacob looks calm and composed tonight; very handsome in a nice tan suit. AMAZING! Beautiful performance. Jacob kept the theatrics and drama to a minimum and just let his gorgeous, strong, pure voice shine through. I still can't believe how long Jacob can hold a note! Wow! Jacob is back, humbled after last week, and his performance gave me chills. The audience and the judges loved it! Steven Tyler, barely able to control himself, praised, "How much of you you put into a song is phenomenal. It’s astounding how angelic you sing. Incredible. Those last three notes, and how well you fit in with a choir, is incredible. God bless you and your voice." Jennifer Lopez raved, "He's right. Who does that? I can't even hear that note. You are such a gifted vocalist. It comes from another place. You pulled the chills out of me. Congratulations." Randy Jackson added, "What happens to me when you sing, is I believe you. I listen to every word. It's like a great singer takes every word and kinda like, comes out so special. I love that you took your time with this. You kinda let this song marinate, then you blew it up at the end. Perfect, perfect, perfect harmony. Great job. Very controlled. Congrats."
