On Tuesday’s American Idol, the first of three special episodes airing this week, judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez checked out the dozen remaining male talents, and if you thought the eccentric Aerosmith rocker could make it through these season without letting the F-word slip, you had another thing coming.
Following James Durbin‘s rockin’ rendition of Judas Priest’s You’ve Got Another Thing Comin,’ an impressed Tyler yelled “F—! Holy s—!” in amazement.
Another sleeper to capture this year’s crown is Jacob Lusk, whose soulful rendition of A House Is Not a Home drew comparisons (from Lopez) to late R&B legend Luther Vandross.
Tyler, keeping it clean, said Lusk must have had “divine intervention” to unfurl such sounds.
Others who performed Tuesday include Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone, Jordan Dorsey, Casey Abrams, Tim Halperin, Robbie Rosen, Paul McDonald, Clint Jun Gamboa, Brett Loewenstern and Ashthon Jones.
The top dozen women will take the stage when American Idol returns Wednesday at 8/7c. Then on Thursday, the top 10 finalists will be announced, along with three wild card picks from the judges.
