Jena Irene: “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis Presley – American Idol Top 2 [VIDEO]

For her second song of the evening on the American Idol Top 2 performances, Jena Irene Ascuitto reprised her favorite song of the season with “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis Presley. This was certainly one of Jena’s major triumphs of American Idol 2014 the first time she performed it, and she was equally as impressive tonight.


Watch the live American Idol performance of Jena Irene’s “I Can’t Help Falling In Live With You” by Elvis Presley below and let us know what you think!


Harry Connick Jr. says he can very clearly hear the influence on this song, that she probably studied others and how they sang this song, but what separates her is that she can take all those influences and come up with a performance that is very unique. It was absolutely beautiful.

Keith Urban says this song was so good two weeks ago that she inspired someone else to do it (on The Voice) and that’s the true mark of a great performer.

Jennifer Lopez says she got the goosies again and Jena’s soul comes through when she sings that song on that piano. It’s overwhelming she’s so good.
