I love Jacob. I can't wait to see how he sings each week. He has incredible interpretive skills---no one this year can match his connection to the lyrics. His phrasing is unique, and his vocal range is superb. I will go to his concerts after the show is over.
Unfortunately, his comment that if folks don't vote for him it's because they can't "look themselves in the mirror" was dumb and potentially insulting. I hope this one remark doesn't get him booted off. None of the other contestants have thrilled me the way Jacob has. I want him to say around longer!
