Jena Irene received a standing ovation for a powerful take on “Creep” during Wednesday’s “American Idol.”

The singer closed the show with the Radiohead classic, and both Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban said they wished they had more time to shower her with praise.

“Jena, I loved it,” Urban told her. “I loved you’re fierceless, I love how bold you are, I love how you own the song, baby.”

Lopez said Irene “can sing anything.”

“You Jena-ify every song that you do. It was so beautiful,” she continued, adding, “You’re going to be here for the long haul.”

And Harry Connick Jr. declared the Top 7 contestant “a phenomenal talent,” who sings “with great humility, great intrigue.”

He went on, “Unquestionably — I have to top what I said about Alex’s performance — unquestionably the best performance of the night.”

“You’re extaordinarly talented, and I think you did major damage tonight,” concluded Connick.
