Steven Tyler can't even judge Jacob Lusk. That's what the Aerosmith frontman told the American Idol finalist last night following his cover of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."

Tyler meant is as a compliment, of course, as Lusk once again poured every ounce of emotion he could into every note out of his mouth. Gospel singers joined Jacob on stage at one point, as he soared along on a single perfectly suited for his voice and his style.

Lusk is at the "top" of J. Lo's list, she said after the performance. Where does he stand for you?

It's clear who the American Idol judges favor at this point on season 10.

Immediately after his tremendous rendition of "A House is Not a Home," Jacob Lusk was told he was placed on the show via "divine intervention" (Steven Tyler) and that he was clearly the next Luther Vandross (Jennifer Lopez).

Is this an issue of hyperbole by new judges aiming to make an impression? Or is Lusk truly that talented? On voice alone, there's little question he ranks among some of the best to ever grace the Idol stage. See for yourself and then sound off: Is Jacob Lusk the early favorite?

It's still early to make any bold predictions, but this much is safe to say: Jacob Lusk must be considered one of the favorite to capture this season's American Idol crown.

The soulful singer from Compton, California possesses a vocal range that is only matched by the incredible emotion he squeezes out of every performance. Definitely someone to watch, starting with this Tuesday's all-male audition night.

Solid Scott

But Scott McCreery might have something to say about Lusk's march to the title. The 17-year old North Carolina resident is one of the only true country singers in the competition. Think he has a chance to go all the way?

It's very early on season 10 of American Idol, but one thing appears clear: we're in for many weeks of contrasting auditions and artists.

Take John Wayne Schulz and his restrained, collected, acoustic cover of "Landslide." Simple, straightforward, impressive.

Now, compare that to the emotion delivered by Jacob Lusk last night, as this hopeful scatted one moment and soared the next while giving viewers a rendition of "God Bless the Child." He even brought himself to hysterical tears by doing so. Might this be the John Boehner of American Idol contestants?

Get ready, American Idol fans. Here comes Jacob Lusk!

The 23-year old from Los Angeles was scarcely featured during that city's original round of season 10 auditions. But he stood out from all other contenders on last night's group night, joining forces with Naima Adedapo - another rumored member of the top 40 - for an a cappella version of the Temptations' "Get Ready."

Watch now and prepare to Lusk after this contestant:
