Jena Irene: “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + the Machine – American Idol Top 2 [VIDEO]

Jena Irene Ascuitto rocked her first song of the night on the American Idol Top 2 performances show! We thought it was a great song choice from American Idol creator Simon Fuller and Jena did an awesome job. The American Idol judges certainly thought so, although they did think she did have a tiny bit of nerves from all the energy from the crowd.

Watch Jena Irene sing “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + the Machine below and tell us what you think!

American Idol Judges:

Keith Urban says it was fantastic and gives her a “wooooo!” He says it was a great song choice from Simon Fuller. The way that she owned the stage was so good and a sign of a real pro. A few little issues with breath control because the adrenaline was through the roof, but she took it home like a Kentucky Derby winner.

Jennifer Lopez says it is electric in the room and that can be overwhelming for a performer and she could hear that, but she did fine and it was really good.

Harry Connick Jr., who is wearing an adorable bow tie, says Jena has a great internal tempo and she shows she really loves being on stage. He could hear that song on her record.

  2. Caleb was the best by far. Didn’t like Jena at all. Sorry Jena fans but I was not impressed at all with the song and I didn’t like the way she did the Elvis song the first time so I didn’t like it this time either.
