by at .

Jacob Lusk was initially going to run with Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" on American Idol this week, but he decided to go with an alternate, less racy song:

    He's finally gone. I laughed that everyone was rooting for Lauren... this gay gets on my nerves--not because he's gay or nerdy... BUT because things that come out are not the nicest or sincerest of things and his actions are always about himself, and his image.

    I find him irritating to watch he was alright at first, but went downhill. and I'm not the only one who thinks so. All the girls in the dorm were cheering after Ryan said Jacob would be the one leaving, but I know for sure 2 of our girls absolutely hate him... They all were routing for Lauren to stay.


    I don't think Jacob is arrogant at all. In fact. I think he's kind of nerdy, naive, and a little socially awkward and inarticulate --- except when he sings. When he's on stage he "loses" himself in the song. That's why he picks songs with meaning to him. I think his comment just means we should all look in the mirror. He's only 23!


    I was so certain they were going to boot him for that supercilious comment.
    First time I saw it, my head went: "What?"

    What did SOME Americans do that was so bad that he has to address ALL Americans--Including the ones that support him--on television? I've heard a person call it a challenge. As in: "Hey! I dare you to boot me!" But I digress. All I can say for certain is that he's not going to be the last one standing.


    Go baby Vandross!! Love ya Jacob.


    Jacob is a very talented singer, and has an amazing voice. I think his comment was his opinion, he is probably right unfortunately it's bad timing AMERICAN IDOL voters simply can't relate due to their own standing. Same reason why they got scared when Cassey sang, Nirvana. Don't get me wrong, all of the others have wonderful voices, I'm a die hard Paul fan but I know it's a singing competion. Take a look at what we have left...what are we gonna pick at next?


    Jacob is very unpleasant to watch. His voice, so impressive in Hollywood week, has started to tire on people. I think he was just trying to impress America with a deep statement but he got it all wrong and upset a lot of people.


    Guess I am a racist now since I was glad lusk was in the bottom 3 and I was looking in "my" mirror with a big smile! You can go to any black church on Sunday and there are a million of him in the choir.


    i thought his comment was rather odd. i mean really what is that supposed to mean? what does he think he is so great? maybe he should have elaborated because just with that statement he said i am really starting to dislike him.


    this guy gives me the creeps


    It was an arrogant comment and an insult to the other contestants. But what was it exactly, a comment about being gay or black. I did not get it. Gays have made it to the top 2 more than once. Blacks have been on top as well. Jennifer Hudson is in her own universe of talent. I don't understand why he said it. Has he watched the show in the past? America voted for a black president with the name Hussein so where does he get off with that attitude???????
