Ousted 'Idol' Jacob Lusk: 'If I Sang A Different Song, I'd Still Be There'


The latest "American Idol" eliminated contestant Jacob Lusk met up with ET and touched on a variety of topics, from his fashion sense to his visit with Regis and Kelly (where he thinks he would be a suitable fill-in when Regis retires), but went in-depth on his perception of why he was ejected.

"I would have sang 'Ain't No Way' by Aretha Franklin or 'A Change is Gonna Come' by Sam Cooke," the former "Idol" contestant said. "If I sang a different song, I'd still be there."

Despite hindsight doubts on his song selection, the outspoken singer remained full of confidence. Lusk conveyed his excitement for the upcoming "American Idol" live tour and his upcoming album, something he claims the people are "thirsty" for.

As for his untimely exit, Lusk summed it up with this pointed declaration: "Top five out of 125,000 people is not a bad place to be."
