MacKenzie Bourg gave a beautiful performance of “Say Something” on Wednesday’s “American Idol.” Watch below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Bourg has repeatedly wowed the judges with his musicality. He even performed an original song for his final solo performance during Hollywood Week. Last week, the former “Voice” contestant found out he made it into the Top 24 for the “farewell season,” and now this week he had to strive for the Top 14.

Based on tonight’s turn on the stage, Bourg seems to have a good chance of getting through. The aspiring star played the guitar as he sang “Say Something” By A Great Big World. Jennifer Lopez told him afterward, “It felt like you felt really good up there. Very natural. You did what MacKenzie does, and that’s exactly what you need to do.”

Harry Connick, Jr. praised Bourg for connecting with the lyrics, something Stephany Negrete was criticized for lacking minutes earlier. The judge went on to say now, “I also liked that you changed the melody but you still kept the integrity of the song.” And Keith Urban noted that if this was Bourg’s own track, “I believed every bit of it. It was a really good song choice.”

Check out the video below! Gossip Cop will have the results — and whether Bourg survives — on Thursday.
