La’Porsha Renae once again blew away the competition with a superstar performance on “American Idol” on Thursday. Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Renae unquestionably had the performance of the night last week with an exquisite take on Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” Of course she made into this week’s Top 8. And of course she took on another major artist and killed it.

After Renae sang Beyoncé’s “Halo,” the judges once again couldn’t help but gush. Jennifer Lopez told the frontrunner, “I love watching you more and more every week come into you own. You’re a hard act to follow for anyone over there. You’re really the one to beat. I don’t know what to say. You’re just so talented and so blessed. You have so much going for you. It’s just good to see you become a star in front of our eyes.”

Harry Connick, Jr. commended Renae for making him look at songs in a different way every single time she performs. He also told the contestant, “You’re also kind of a master at arcing a song, especially in a competition… It was incredible, as always.” Keith Urban similarly praised Renae’s performance skills, and used the word “incredible,” too.”

It’s probably a given that Renae will now soar through this week’s voting. Watch below!
