Alex Preston and Jess Meuse performed originals on American Idol Wednesday night.

That’s notable because it had never happened before during a performance episode of the show.

Fans, apparently, loved the idea.

This morning, three Idol songs from last night’s show have cracked the iTunes Top 200 singles.

Two are the songs performed by Alex and Jess.

Here’s where the songs stand as of 11:15 a.m.

* 38: “Fairytales” by Alex Preston

* 111: “Lego House” by Sam Woolf

* 124: “Blue Eyed Lie” by Jess Meuse.

For perspective, not a single song from last week’s show cracked the Top 200.

* Alex’s “Fairytales” was number 19 on the pop chart

* Malaya Watson’s “Ain’t No Way” was number 183 on the pop chart
