Watch Jena Irene Sing “Rolling in the Deep” in American Idol 2014 Top 8 — April 2, 2014
Can you believe that in just over a month we'll have ourselves a winner for Season 13 of American Idol? We can't either, but you know what they say: Time flies when you’re having fun! After saying goodbye to the adorable Majesty Rose last week, we’re one step closer to meeting our new champion. Who will walk away with the crown? We have our guess, but only time will truly tell!
Tonight (April 2), the eight remaining hopefuls go head-to-head in hopes of winning America’s votes. The singers really have the chance to show how much they’ve grown throughout the competition, as they’ve been tasked with singing the songs they first performed in their auditions.
Sixth to take the stage is Jena Irene Asciutto, who was clearly really nervous when she first performed “Rolling in the Deep” back in Detroit. Jena’s singing this Adele number once again, but this time with much more confidence. Will she prove to the judges just how far she’s come?
“What I loved so much about that performance is that you took that song and made it your own and you never let that go,” says Keith. “Anybody else would have started off like that and then gone straight into the version that we know. I thought that was incredibly bold and I loved every second of it.”
Do you think Jena deserves to make it to the Top 7? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
