Malaya Watson stunned on Wednesday’s “American Idol,” where the Top 8 contestant performed her original audition song, “Ain’t No Way.”

After giving her a standing ovation, Keith Urban declared, “Malaya on fire!”

“You had this voice right from day one. You just needed to be with it. And that was so with it tonight,” he added.

Jennifer Lopez told Watson, “You’re blossoming into this star right before our very eyes.”

“You’re going to be such a huge star,” she continued. “You’re going to run away with this competition.”

And Harry Connick Jr. commended Watson for “doing everything right.”

He went on, “That was a really, really strong performance. You’re singing lyrics, you’re presenting, you’re entertaining, you’re performing.”
