I really tried to like Jacob, but he rubs me the wrong way. There is a hint of cocky attitude that irks me. I dig the gospel sound in its correct moment but even the restrained Jacob I find very all over the place. He is usually off key in several areas of his performance and yet people think he sounds perfect... I think having a musical background most likely ruins competitions like these for me, I can pick out tone issues, pitch problems etc. more easily then someone who isn't familiar... Small voice issues I chalk up to nerves and give the singer a pass, knowing they just need more time and practice to get it right, but when there are glaring voice issues that the judges aren't picking up on, I am flabbergasted.
