Who Sang “God Bless the Child” Better: Haley Reinhart or Jacob Lusk?
The word from all corners of the American Idol universe is that Season 10 has shown cramazing talent. One thing’s for sure, we don’t envy Jennifer, Steven, and Randy’s very difficult task in judging this season’s singers!
For example, last night’s Hollywood Week solo performances, as usual, had several contestants singing the same song. What was unusual, however, was how thoroughly awesome some of these takes of the same song were. Just look at Haley Reinhart and Jacob Lusk, who sang very different renditions of the jazz standard “God Bless the Child,” but were equally strong.
And while we would be content to say we liked both versions of “God Bless the Child,” Idol is nothing if not a competition. So what do you think? Who brought more to the song, Haley or Jacob? (And try not to let Jacob’s post-song weeping fit sway you!)
