I haven't been a dedicated watcher of American Idol but it looks like the Top 24 has a REAL SANGER. I saw this performance from Jacob Lusk and it instantly made me sit up and pay attention to this young man. He reminds me of a mix between Fantasia and Freddie Jackson. He's got a very Gospel voice but with some R&B flavor.
