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.

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).

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.

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

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."
