American Idol: Jena Irene, C.J. Harris and Alex Preston Stand Out from the Pack

American Idol's Top 11 sang songs from the cinema on Wednesday, but who possessed the Gravity to impress the judges and which contestants are destined to be Gone with the Wind?

Jena Irene, 17, who was in the Bottom 3 last week, earned a standing ovation from Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, and a prolonged ovation from the crowd, following her electrifying performance of "Decode" at the piano.

Urban said there was a "ferocity" about the way she performed the Twilight song, comparing it to "hurtling along the edge of a cliff," while Lopez called it the best performance of the night and yelled, "America, get on board!"

"Harsh Harry" has been out in full force, but it was the fans who made the important decision of who was going home on American Idol Thursday.

"I just want them to get better," Harry Connick Jr. said to fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban after a particularly negative critique on Wednesday night's performance show that left at least one contestant in tears.

While no contestants received universal praise from the judges Wednesday, Urban had guaranteed finalists Sam Woolf and Emily Piriz that they would be safe despite the tough criticism.

But who did America deem worthy of another week in the competition?

Sure, we're anxious to see who will come out on top in the battle of Lupita Nyong'o vs. Jennifer Lawrence (or, as well call it, Most Charming Category Ever). We're just as curious to see which film will take home Best Picture honors. But, more importantly, which meme will win the night?

It's already been a hairy, heel-tossing and sing-songy awards show season that's produced no shortage of meme-orable moments.

There were new twists, familiar faces and loads of drama on American Idol Tuesday night, as the ladies kicked off the first of the live performance shows.

The new twists? In what was dubbed Rush Week, the judges reviewed tapes of the Top 15 Girls and picked the 10 that impressed them the most to perform, surprising the ladies one at a time.

The familiar faces? Randy Jackson, the "Dogfather" of Idol, was back to mentor the contestants, leading a sort of Rush Week "wisdom workshop" for the pledges, which included vocal coaching from former Idol contestants Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtry, and guidance from stylists, a movement coach, and a pair of spiritual advisers.
