And we finally have a clear-cut favorite on American Idol!

The Top 7 put on the best performance night of Season 13 Wednesday, as producers came up with a first-ever twist for the long-running competition:

The finalists selected tracks for one another, proving how tight-knit they actually are by refusing to sabotage anyone’s performance with a difficult or eccentric song.

That’s no fun, as know, but it was loads of fun to watch Jene Irene close the show with a cover of "Creep." It earned a standing ovation (from everyone except a focused Harry Connick Jr.) and it propeled her to the front of this mostly mundane pack.

Watch all seven solo performances now:

Do you agree? Was Irene the best? Or were you taken by Alex Preston instead?
