On Wednesday's episode of "American Idol," the top nine contestants tackled the tunes of their heroes -- and it helped bring out some of the most inspired performances so far this season.

The top jaw-dropper of the night came from Elise Testone, who performed Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love." Judge Steven Tyler marveled, "Nobody can pull that song off -- you made Robert Plant proud tonight, girl!" Jennifer Lopez was almost speechless: "That was some real rock star ... stuff," she said.

Watch it!

Tune in Thursday to see who is going home on "American Idol"!
