LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jacob Lusk is out of air on "American Idol."
The booming 23-year-old vocalist from Compton, Calif., was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest Thursday after his unsuccessful attempts Wednesday at both parts of "No Air," the duet of Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown, and a tender rendition of "Love Hurts," the classic tune made famous by Nazareth and Roy Orbison.
A tearful Lauren Alaina, the soaring 16-year-old songstress of Rossville, Ga., joined Lusk as one of the bottom two vote-getters. Alaina impressed judges with her performances of Carrie Underwood's "Flat on the Floor" and The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody."
Another finalist will be eliminated next Thursday.
