For Carole King night, “American Idol” Top 6 finalist Jacob Lusk took on “Oh No, Not My Baby,” a 1964 hit written by King and first recorded by Maxine Brown. Rod Stewart, Cher and Linda Ronstadt have all also recorded a version.

For Jacob, he made it uptempo with the horns blaring and a great scat/riff section. It was a wonderful way to kick off the night. The judges were complimentary – Randy said it wasn’t perfect, but the scat section was incredible. Tyler said he loved seeing Jacob finally shake his tail feather and we agree. Seacrest called the fun infectious.

What did you think? Jacob was in the Bottom 3 last week, is this the comeback that is enough to keep him in the competition? We think it might be.
