Jacob Lusk closed out the American Idol performance show last night – and may have finally showed some weakness.

The soulful crooner covered a 1987 Heart single, “Alone,” coming on a bit strong with the vibrato and coming dangerously close to screeching instead of singing. But the judges still showered the finalist with praise, gushing:

“Gospel had a baby, and they named it Jacob Lusk” (Tyler) and “It is so amazing, so good” (Lopez).

What did you think of this rendition?
