Queens crooner Heejun Han has cruised into American Idol’s top 12.

Viewer votes chose the bottom guy and girl and the judges chose who to send home.

The choice came down to Jeremy Rosado and Elise Testone. The judges ended Roasado’s journey.

On Wednesday’s episode, Han performed Stevie Wonder’s “All In Love Is Fair.”

The judging triumvirate was impressed.

“Fantastic,” said Steven Tyler. “I love your voice man. Keep it up.”

“I love you,” Jennifer Lopez told the Flushing native. “I loved you since the first time you sang for me and I still love you now.”

Randy Jackson said that while the performance wasn’t flawless it “was really good.”

Devotees took to Han’s Facebook fan page — which has more than 16,000 likes — to extol his performance.

“I had goosebumps listening to that song,” said one fan.

“I love your voice and your humor. Thank you for being you,” added another.

Han was not among the bottom two male vote getters. Beside Rosado, Jermaine Jones found himself in the bottom two.

Idol continues next Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Fox 5.
