North Farmington High School senior Jena Irene Asciutto will compete to remain in the Top 3 on “American Idol” Wednesday and her school is organizing a watch party 

The doors open at 7:45 p.m. and the show airs from 8-10 p.m.

Admission to the community-wide watch party is free, but donations will be accepted for a charity to be determined at  later date.

Watch the latest video.

In last week’s competition, the 17-year-old from Farmington Hills  performed Young the Giant’s “My Body” and Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie.”

A West Bloomfield native who currently lives in Florida, Sam Woolf, was voted off the show last week.

Asciutto, who performs under the name of Jena Irene on the FOX reality series, joins Caleb Johnson, Alex Preston, and Jessica Meuse  as finalists hoping to win the big prize – a $350,000 recording contract – in the May 21 finale.

Right now, Jena Irene appears to be in a strong position to win the competition. She is already matched with another Michigan native, Westland country singer Josh Gracin, for her endurance in the 13-year run of “American Idol,” according to the Detroit Free Press.
