Watch the Looks on 'American Idol' Judges' Faces When 15-Year-Old Who Lives 'Off the Grid' Actually Starts Her Audition

"We have no electricity ... no power lines."

"American Idol" judges were blown away on Wednesday night when 15-year-old Jeneve Rose Mitchell took to the audition stage, telling the teen — who lives "off the grid" with her family in Colorado — that they were truly impressed by her talents.

"We have no electricity ... no power lines," Mitchell told judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., before performing the song "Chainsaw" by The Band Perry.

The judges made it no secret that they admired the teen's talents, which include singing and playing the cello.

"Your rhythmic sensibility — the way you sing and play at the same time — is really compelling," Urban said.

Lopez added, "We were kind of impressed by you."

Watch Mitchell's performance below:

The teenager, who was advanced by the judges, expounded upon her "off-the-grid" lifestyle in an interview with Fox411 this week, explaining that she is homeschooled and taught herself how to play string instruments.

"We can’t get power lines up there, so we use kerosine lanterns," she said. "And twice a week, during ‘American Idol’ season, we turn on a generator to get the TV going."
