Queens-native Heejun Han performs in front of the Judges on American Idol.

A week after the American Idol judges were on Heejun Han’s back for not taking the competition seriously, the Flushing-native had them on their feet with his rendition of “A Song For You.”

The top 9 Idols performed songs from their personal musical icons with Han choosing the Donny Hathaway classic.

The song, which was a complete departure from last week’s jokey performance, displayed the Queens crooner’s capabilities and earned a standing ovation from the judges.

“Hee-man you did it, you turned it around,” Steven Tyler said.

Last week’s playful performance was a result of Han not knowing how well he can sing, the Aerosmith frontman said.

“That is the most beautiful tone,” said Jennifer Lopez. “When you connect and you really sing to us, you move people.”

Veteran judge Randy Jackson was just glad to have the old Han back.

“Finally the Heejun that we selected came back to us tonight,” Jackson said. “Welcome back.”

After the show Han tweeted that “A Song For You” was for his fans.

“Thank you all so much. What a life,” wrote Han. “It was [a] song for you guys.”

Tonight on Idol the viewer votes will reveal who will be sent home and who will advance to the show’s top 8 at 8 p.m. on Fox 5.
