Jena Irene gave a “phenomenal” performance — for the third week in a row — on “American Idol” on Wednesday. Check out the video below!

The contestant closed the show with “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence, the same track Angie Miller impressed with last season.

Harry Connick Jr. said Caleb Johnson’s killer Led Zepellin cover would be “hard to follow, but declared, “You just followed it.”

“This is a voice that could be heard on the radio…,” he went on. “It was really strong. I hope you’re happy.”

Keith Urban told her, “I love that you deliver, every time you do a performance, you just deliver… You’ve got your own lane, baby. No one’s doing what you’re doing.

And Jennifer Lopez said Irene sounded “phenomenal.”
