Kree Harrison sang the timeless Kris Kristofferson classic ‘Help Me Make It Through the Night’ on ‘American Idol‘ Wednesday night (April 10), once again demonstrating her wide range of interpretation and earning accolades from the judges.

She chose the song as part of the theme of the evening, where contestants sang songs they wish they had written. She lauded the song and the long list of other singers who had covered it, noting that she knew she had to connect with it in a special way.

Which is exactly what she did. Harrison began with a simple vocal underpinned by minimalist chords, then built her performance up through the more powerful part of her range, demonstrating again that she can sing anything that comes in front of her with  equal aplomb.

“That was beautiful,” Nicki Minaj said. “You are just at the head of the class.”

Randy Jackson gushed, “You are what I call a natural, natural singer.”

Mariah Carey noted that she had sung the song in a film appearance and struggled with it, saying, “That’s how the song should be sung,” while Keith Urban — who previously stated that Harrison could win this season of ‘Idol’ — said, “I predict that you will become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
