I've been struggling to get into this season of American Idol. I felt the last few seasons lag and miss Simon. But if we keep getting more performances like last night's from Jacob Lusk, the luster might be back. I think last night was a first in the history of the show: a judge hopped on stage to congratulate a contestant on his performance. Check out the end of the video to watch Steven Tyler, who was so moved by the perforance, he raced on stage to embrace Jacob.
