About

Jena Irene Asciutto also known as Jena Irene is a singer from Farmington Hills. She was the runner-up of the thirteenth season of American Idol. Asciutto became the first female Wild Card contestant of the series to qualify into the finale, and became the second Wild Card contestant, after Clay Aiken in the second season, to make it into the finale.

While on American Idol, she performed under the shortened name of Jena Irene. For her American Idol audition, Asciutto sang "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele. During the audition process, production continually called her "Jena Irene," possibly due to a mistake she made when writing down her name, as "Irene" is not her surname, but rather her middle name. Although she initially made attempts to correct her name, she eventually decided to keep the name professionally.

In April 2015 she signed a long-term recording deal with the independent Detroit label Original 1265 Recordings. Asciutto released her debut EP, Innocence, on April 22, 2016.
