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:

Michael Jackson‘s “Man in the Mirror.”

Before leading off last night’s performances, he said that if he ends up in the Bottom Three, it’s ’cause America wasn’t ready to look themselves in the mirror.

Bold statement, but after his rendition of MJ’s moving classic, he may just escape that fate. Not knock-your-socks-off stuff, but pretty solid, don’t you think?
