Watch Jena Irene Sing “Decode” in American Idol 2014 Top 11 — March 12, 2014
It’s hard to believe that American Idol started almost two months ago, but here we are watching the contestants fight for a spot on the summer tour! On tonight’s episode (March 12), the 11 remainders contenders will show us their true artistry by taking on “Songs From the Cinema.” We’re actually more excited by this theme than we have been in awhile — so much so that we even picked our own choices for them to sing!
Next to take the stage is Jena Irene Asciutto, who unfortunately found herself in the bottom three last week. Knowing she needs to deliver a super solid performance in order to stay in the competition, Jena does what she does how to do best — perform an emotional song from behind the piano. Her rendition of “Decode” from Twilight does everything she hoped it would and more, earning cheers from the crowd and praise from the judges.
“I don’t know what you were doing in the bottom three last week!” says J.Lo. “Honestly, you have one of the best voices here, with the most dynamics. You give great performances. America, get on board with this! This girl in the real thing. Best performance of the night!”
Do you think Jena deserves to make it to the Top 10? Sound off in the comments!
