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.
