Jena Irene reinvigorated Wednesday’s “American Idol,” bringing electronica music to the show with “Clarity” by Zedd.

“That’s the best performance of the night so far, baby, easily,” declared Keith Urban.

He continued, “It’s not just about moving around, it’s about looking comfortable doing it, too,” going on to commend Irene for changing the melody to “make it your own” and praising her “strong signature sound.”

“You did sound so great,” said Jennifer Lopez. “I love you singing that song. It’s perfect for you. I wish it was longer so we could’ve gotten the whole crowd to jump!”

Harry Connick Jr. told Irene, “I was really interested to see how you were gonna do that because it’s such a popular tune.”

“It seems like that might be your wheelhouse, and I can really see you succeeding in that,” he went on. “It’s really exciting to think about what you could do.”

He added, “I’m starting to get a really clear idea of who you are and I like it very much. You’re a very strong singer.”
