Another Wednesday, Another "American Idol" Recap: Homeward Bound Edition

Jenna Irene kicked things off with a well-praised cover of Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall which reminded her of road trips with her mom and brother. The judges praised her unique take on the song, but Harry Connick Jr. “wanted more”.

Some of the greatest successes of the night included Dexter Roberts, singing Montgomery Gentry’s Lucky Man (“the best performance of the night” according to Connick), while Emily Pritz made an appropriate choice, singing Jennifer Lopez’ Let’s Get Loud. The judges generally loved it – especially Lopez, who admitted that she may have been somewhat biased. Another highlight came with his rendition of Working Man by Rush, which is his favorite band.

Lopez was clearly flattered by Emily Pritz' cover of one of Lopez's most iconic songs.

While acknowledging that Caleb was the most consistent performer on the show, Harry worried that he would become "predictable." Malaya Watson also earned rave reviews for her performance of "Take Me to the King" by Tamela Mann. So those are the favorites to move on in the competition. Who do you think will get the boot?
