Jena Irene gave Jennifer Lopez “goosies” on “American Idol” on Wednesday.

The judge revealed she had goosebumps after the Top 6 contestant performed a stirring rendition of “So Small” by Carrie Underwood.

“Very, very beautiful,” added Lopez.

Keith Urban marveled at Irene’s young age, “Jena, baby, you are such a good singer, my word! You’re everything… You’re 17, baby, and you sing like that!”

“You get better and better every week,” he went on. “This is like the best journey to watch you.”

And Underwood herself tweeted to Irene and fellow contestant Caleb Johnson, who also performed one of the season 4 winner’s songs, “So impressed tonight by both @CalebPJohnson & @JenaAsciutto1 You made my songs sound so good! You should be proud…I know I am!”

Irene also amazed the judges’ at the start of the show, when she kicked things off with “Barracuda” by Heart and Lopez told her she had “a real chance” at making it to the finale.
