Heejun Han: Did He Turn It Around?

by at . Comments

Heejun Han made a fool of himself on American Idol last week, at least in the critical eyes of Steven Tyler. He laid in to this finalist for not taking the opportunity seriously.

So, did Han learn from his mistake on the top 9 performance show?

He sang a version of "Song for You" this week and somehow earned a standing ovation for the effort, with Tyler telling Han he "turned it around" and J. Lo giving him props for a "beautiful vibrato."

We guess? Heejun is clearly not Phillip Phillips, but there's room for diversity on Idol. Although... will that continue to be the case after tonight? Can Han really survive another cut? Watch his latest audition as we await his fate:
