Jacob Lusk was an incredibly performer and an all-around great guy but his undeniable talent and charming personality couldn’t keep him in the American Idol competition any longer. The loveable singer was voted off AI tonight, it was just announced.
In the bottom two were Jacob and – shockingly enough – Lauren Alaina. Lauren has coasted through the competition with relatively no troubles so far, which is likely why she teared up when Ryan announced it was her and Jacob in danger of elimination this week.
Lauren’s fans screamed loud as Ryan announced that she was safe for another week while fans of Lusk stood surprised and devastated that their favorite contestant would no longer be competing each week.
Still competing in the competition are Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery (I’m a little surprised he made it this far considering he’s been so niche in his song choices), James Durbin and Haley Reinhart.
Who do you think will win American Idol 2011 – and do you think that Jacob deserved to be eliminated tonight?
