Judges comments for “Dog Days Are Over”: Keith Urban – “Fantastic, Jena! Firstly, I gotta say Simon that was a great song choice. Listen I just want to say the way that you owned that stage is so good, that’s a sign of a real pro. The progress you’ve made has been phenomenal. There’s a few issues with breath control, you’re like a jocky running a Kentucky derby and you took it home.” Jennifer – “I was going to say the same thing about the energy in the room, because it is electric right now. You did a really good job, it sounded really good. I’m not going to over talk it, it was a good start.” Harry – “You know Jena it was fantastic, one of my favorite parts was when you started walking and then started walking double time. It shows you really enjoy being on stage. Great choice great job!”
On the next live results show airing Thursday, one of the two remaining contestants will be crowned the next AMERICAN IDOL. Tune in to see who impresses the judges – and America. The race is tight, it really is too close to call, either one of them has a chance of winning the whole thing.
