Steven Tyler has one of the most impressive ranges in the history of modern music. And yet, one performer on 'American Idol' (Tue., 8PM ET on FOX) leaves him in awe. After Jacob Lusk's performance of Luther Vandross' 'A House Is Not a Home,' Tyler was left subdued, but no less enthusiastic, in his praise.
"I'm honored -- honored to be in your presence," he said sincerely. "You make me cry when you sing. I don't know where you get it from but I will bathe in it."
Lusk first wowed the judges and audiences in Hollywood when he belted out a song so powerfully that he was left exhausted and in tears. This performance wasn't nearly so over the top, but it was no less impressive for Lusk's control and passion in both his lower and upper registers.
