Jena Irene sang, “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” on the finale of AMERICAN IDOL this week for her song choice. This week each of the finalist sang three songs: one their possible winner song (a previously unrecorded song); one their choice and another Simon Fuller’s choice.
The Top 2 will really have to bring their A game tonight to win the competition, we expect a higher level of performances as the contestant pool is now down to two. Did you watch tonight’s performance show? Just in case you missed tonight’s show we have you covered and you can read our full and detailed recap here!
Judge’s comments on “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” : Harry – “Jena, so I can very clearly hear the influence on this song, that you have probably listened to other performers and studied them. What separates you from those other performers is you are able to set those influences aside. It was absolutely beautiful Jena.” Keith – “You did this song two weeks ago and it was so good you inspired someone else to do it. That’s the mark of a true artist in my opinion. Absolutely beautiful baby.” Jennifer – “What I love about that song is your soul comes through, you’re so incredibly talented and when you sing that song it makes me want to do things I’ve never done before. Again, the competition is so fierce tonight, tough job for America tonight I wouldn’t want to be in their position. I love you, I think you’re amazing.”
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.
