Video: Jacob Lusk Singing ‘God Bless The Child’ On American Idol

The notion of an American Idol contestant singing Billie Holiday’s “God Bless The Child” sounds like a terrible idea. But somehow, a 23-year-old spa concierge from Compton, California made it work last night. Jacob Lusk took the stage during last night’s final Hollywood show of the season and got a standing ovation from the judges and all his fellow contestants.

MTVNews called it “one of the most stunning, stirring auditions ever seen on the Idol stage.” And it looks like Jacob will definitely be someone to watch this season.
