Belly dancer Jennifer Lopez steals the show with her toned stomach... but it's the end of his American Idol dream for Jacob Lusk

By Daily Mail Reporter

Shaking her stuff: Jennifer Lopez performs her new single On The Floor, dressed in a stomach baring gold fringed outfit

She's there to help find the stars of the future.

But Jennifer Lopez took the opportunity for a bit of self-promotion tonight, revealing her toned stomach in a fringed gold belly dancer outfit as she took to the stage on American Idol.

But while Lopez was having a blast performing her single On The Floor, it wasn't such a good night for Jacob Lusk.

As the contestants were whittled down to a final four, Lusk found himself no longer part of the talent show.

Gold singer: Jennifer revealed her toned stomach in a fringed gold harem trouser outfit as she took to the stage on American Idol

The booming 23-year-old vocalist from Compton, California, was revealed to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest.

A day earlier, he had unsuccessfully attempted both parts of No Air, the duet of Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown, and a tender rendition of Love Hurts, the classic tune made famous by Nazareth and Roy Orbison.

'I got to share a little bit with America, and I think America's fallen in love with me,' said Lusk after his elimination.

'Now I can go and put out that good-feeling R&B music that reminds you of Luther (Vandross) or those great old singers.'

Bottom two: Lauren Alaina broke down in tears when she learned she could be facing the chop

Lauren Alaina, the soaring 16-year-old songstress of Rossville, Georgia, joined Lusk as one of the bottom two vote-getters.

She broke down on learning that she was in the bottom two, sobbing as she waited to learn her fate.

Despite her position, Alania had impressed the Idol judges with her performances of Carrie Underwood's Flat on the Floor and The Righteous Brothers' Unchained Melody on Wednesday's installment of current and classic tunes.

'Jacob had a rough night last night,' said Idol mentor and Interscope Records chief Jimmy Iovine. 'I think his nerves are getting the best of him.'

The final five: Jacob's departure leaves Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart

Besides Alaina, the other remaining finalists are over-the-top 22-year-old rocker James Durbin deep-voiced 17-year-old country crooner Scotty McCreery, and bluesey 20-year-old singer Haley Reinhart.

The singers will return to the stage next week with another finalist dismissed next Thursday.

The 10th season Idol champion is scheduled to be crowned on the May 26 finale.
