Jacob Lusk Shakes His Tailfeather on Idol

by at . Comments

Last night the American Idol top six performed, both separately and together, the songs of Carole King. Did Jacob Lusk do the legendary artist justice?

With a fun, energetic take on the hit "Oh No, Not My Baby," we would say so. Whether it's enough to keep him around another week is another issue.

"You really brought yourself back," says Randy. "The scatting was incredible, and that's why you're here." But will he be here in about 15 hours?

Performing in the dreaded opening slot (another act of sabotage, perhaps) won't help. He needed someone else to stumble, and they didn't really.

Still, you never know, and he added a fun duet with James Durbin later in the show. Watch them perform "I'm Into Something Good" below:

What do you think? Who was the best performer this week?
