Jena Irene Asciutto is a seriously talented contestant on this season’s American Idol. Read on for the facts on Asciutto and what she brings to the show.


1. Jena Was Saved By The Judges

As a wild card on the show, the American Idol judges chose to save Jena and make her a finalist. Jena started on the show with Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” as her audition piece and later performed “Paint It Black” on stage. Though she didn’t have enough fan votes to make it into the Top 10, the judges knew her voice was worthy of moving forward. Check out her audition in the above video to see why Jena belongs on the show.

Jena’s mother Julie told M Live that it was Jena’s cousin Jacob who helped get her into music by giving her his keyboard.

When she was 10 or 11, he gave her his hand-me-down keyboard, one of those that light up when you play it. That’s how she learned to play the piano, and in the summer between sixth and seventh grade, when her boyfriend told her he wanted to break up, she wrote her first song. It was really good, and three weeks later, she wrote another one. That’s when I did what every good mother does when her children show promise like that; I got her a local coach and supported her passion.


5. She Loves Her Family, Especially Her Mom

 

Fortunately, Jena’s entire family feels honored and is very supportive of Jena’s being part of American Idol. Jena’s mother told M Live:

This is such an honor for us. It’s also a serious challenge and she’s going after it with passion, perseverance and pride.
