I was just wondering if Nicki gave Mariah the necklace that Ellen DeGeneres gifted to them both?

SONG SPOILERS! :wohoo:

Show content
Angie Miller
"Maybe" by Emile Sandé
"Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" by Elton John
"Try" by Pink

Candice Glover
"Next To Me" by Emile Sandé
"One" by U2
"Somewhere" by Reri Grist/Barbra Stresiand

Kree Harrison
"Perfect" by Pink
"Better Dig Two" by The Band Perry
"Here Comes Goodbye" by Chris Sligh/Rascal Flatts

I'm so proud of most of their choices actually! Kree is FINALLY singing songs that people can really recognize with. Angie is as usual gonna haunt us with goosebumpsy piano performances and Candice... we all know she's going to slay her songs!

OMG, EXCITING FINAL THREE. I don't want either of them to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'( I can't remember in any other season of AI where I've had my top 3 performers of the season in the F3 and for that.. my faith in AI has been restored. :lol3:

Based on the song list, Kree and Angie both have a recent + relatively famous song. Whereas for Candice, she has a famous song, a classic song and a not so well-known song.

I think Candice is going to kill Somewhere and get a standing ovation totally. Whereas the judges are probably going to criticize Kree for not doing justice to a Pink song... Randy will probably say something like "I wished you put more attitude into it!"...

And the judges will really like the Pink and Elton John songs chosen by Angie... and most probably just commend Angie on her Emile Sande song. The judges will also most probably like Kree's rendition of Here Comes Goodbye.

lol. I can totally picture all their comments in my mind now already. Considering they have been so harsh on Kree, I won't even be surprise if they sort of like throw her under the bus for ALL her songs even if she sang well.. :res:

If they do that to Kree then they want Candice to be in the final two. I hope they don't and I hope they all sing their hearts out.

I think Candice MIGHT miss the Top 3. But we never know. Amber's votes just all went to Candice... I think, or Angie. :stare

Kree: I liked the sincerity of the performance. Told you Randy is going to criticize it.. "You don't have a lot of possess to it".. :res:

The judges are basically avoiding the "We don't want to appear to be throwing you under the bus, but NO, we are not giving you good comments for your song. :res: :res: :res:

Come on, it wasn't that bad!

Candice: Her voice resonated in this song choice. Dang, she's good with making songs into her own style to showcase her vocals. Her voice sounded a little weak and raspy today... perhaps she wasn't in her best condition today? And I agree with Randy, she was kind of flat and sharp at times and at a point in the song I felt that she just didn't connect with me.

Angie: It was great. I would have given her a standing ovation. Just because she isn't behind the piano doesn't mean that she can't do the song better than at the piano just by simply standing there. It was even a greater performance than Candice's one and there's no #inittowinit??? :res:

Grade: A- (Reserving my A cause I know more crazzzzyyyy performances are coming)

Candice: I liked the song choice! I liked her vocals! I liked the entire performance. It was refreshing, showcased her vocals well and I thought it was flawless! However, I felt like there was something missing about the song... especially at the end when it ended abruptly.. I was hoping for her to end with a really long, high and sexy note...

Kree: She didn't get a standing Ovation?? It was an emotional trigger and she sang her heart out... it was so beautiful. I had to listen to it again and this just shows what I've been talking about Kree not picking the right songs. Look at what she did to this song... she killed it. So good... just so good. I felt every single word of her song. This is by far my most favourite performance from her.

Angie: I LOVED IT. She was comfortable and in the zone with every single word she sang. Definitely one of her best performances ever and just proved all the judges wrong. She DOESN'T NEED A PIANO everytime! :res: LOVEDDDDD IT!

omg Kree's performance of Here Comes Goodbye was stunning... I've never been a Kree fan, but holy moly. That was filled with emotion. I was listening to Perfect and I felt like there was no emotion... and then Here Comes Goodbye was an emotional rollercoaster.

Kree: I loved the performance! I agreed with Mariah though.. "more sorrow than anger". But I agreed with the judges.. she was bigger than the song! But I think the country fans are gonna love it.. not a great song choice for the F3 though!

Candice: CRAZY VOCALS. But am I the only one here who felt that she didn't make it her own? I felt that the arrangement was messy and I miss the soulfulness from her... I know many people are going to like this performance by her and such... but definitely not one of my favourite from her. I thought she was going to be exceptional in it and as expected and predicted... the judges gave her a standing O just because it was a big song? :res: Kree's second song beat her hands down.

I listened to it twice and cried both times. It's like her screaming out all the unjust and unfairness she has been shown on the show. :lol3:

Angie: It was great, normal, sincere. But not her best piano performance. A weird song choice for the F3. But if you know the original song, she made this song completely her own so props to her. But I do hope if she's in the F2!

I thought Candice had the best homecoming but Kree's and her sister's visit to their empty home was heartbreaking. It was obvious that they want Kree gone and a Candice/Angie final 2. It won't matter for Kree though, she will have a great career on her own.

I like this F3 a lot and would be heartbroken to see anyone of them go. Honestly, I am going to say I am rooting for Kree and Angie because I want the show to continue on... if Candice win, I know she's going to be yet another normal winner (Fantasia etc) who doesn't have a big career. Kree and Angie on the other hand will have higher chances than Candice. I know I'm being unfair here because Candice is obviously the best singer of the three.. but to be an American Idol you need the package and the X factor and likability factor.. which Candice lacks.. :( Sigh.

I wasn't really sad that Angie went home (AND I'M A HUGE ANGIE FAN), because as a rationale person ( :lol3: ), I think all 3 of them DESERVED to be in the Top 2 and after Janelle went, her votes went to Kree and after Amber went, her votes went to Candice... so obviously, Angie is the only one without any much transferring of votes.

The thing is, it all came down to votes and destiny. If God didn't want Angie to win, he probably thinks that it's better for America to remember Angie as the person who deserved to be in the Top 2 and didn't make it (UNFAIR, UNJUST) and probably she will have a huge career like JHud, ChrisD and such. Imagine if she's in the finale, but she got owned by Candice and people remember her better as the second loser, her career won't pick up anyway. So I know Angie is going to be fine and know that God has the best plans for her.

19 Entertainment will sign Angie up in about 1 to 2 months anyway. Just you wait. :lol3:

'American Idol' reveals its top 2 with a shocking elimination

“American Idol” has been light on surprises all season, but delivered its most shocking result on Thursday night.

Candice Glover was the first singer to earn her spot in next week’s finale, which wasn’t a surprise. The unexpected result came next when Kree Harrison joined her in celebration, leaving teenager Angie Miller as the third-place finisher.

Angie hasn't been in the bottom three all season, while Candice and Kree have been in the bottom two within the two previous weeks. Kree even got the “whatever happens tomorrow ...” speech from the judges after her third performance on Wednesday, the usual sign that they think the results are obvious. It’s certainly the same message that Amber Holcomb received the week before, just before her own elimination.

But instead, it was Angie who left, and the teenager who has had a smile on her face all season -- who even reacted gracefully when Lazaro Arbos left her hanging with a brutal performance in their duet a month ago -- had to try and compose herself. She cried during the video montage, got herself together momentarily, and then broke down during her final performance of Colton Dixon’s “Never Gone” as her family and friends rushed the stage to console her.

(A silver lining for Angie’s mother: This probably means her son can go ahead and shave his “playoff beard.”)

Mariah Carey looked overjoyed. The other three judges huddled for a moment, looking like they were marveling at what happened.

(That wasn’t the only drama involving the judges. Early in the show, Ryan Seacrest walked behind the podium as he told the viewers, “A little later on we’ll reveal who’s leaving our show.” He stopped and stared pointedly at Randy Jackson, who made some random noises. “A little heads up?” Ryan asked)

Jimmy Iovine may have inadvertently put his finger on the reason for Angie's surprising exit, noting that while she sang well Wednesday, she missed out on the opportunity to have one of those elusive “moments” that the judges are always talking about. As both he and the panel pointed out, she decided not to sit behind the piano, where her star has shone the brightest. Angie replied that it was because with three solos to perfect and not much time to prepare, she wasn’t confident she could learn the part.

A reasonable point, but that left her at a disadvantage when Candice brought the house down as she closed the show with “Somewhere.” But still, most thought Angie had done enough to earn the other slot.

As for Kree, perhaps viewers saw her hometown visit, where she and her sister went back to the home they were living in when their parents died, as something they couldn’t ignore. Her tragic backstory is much more compelling than that of Angie, who’s probably about to have the same kind of career as the third-place finisher that she’d have had if she had won.

Kree and Candice were definitely the two looking the most tense onstage while waiting for the results. Angie, smiling, looked like she didn’t have a care in the world. But as the final few minutes showed, she actually cared very much that she’ll now have to watch her two friends compete for the title next week.

Did the right two advance to the finale? Tell us what you think in the comments!

Personally, I'm really disappointed that Angie was eliminated. This is the second time that I was really sad when someone failed to reach the final 3 (the first is Melinda Doolittle (season 6)). :'(
After reading that article, somehow I think that we missed the second thing that might be the reason of people voting for someone that I think has mediocre voice (sorry Kree fans) other than good looking, which is the backstory of the contestant. I can say this because in Indonesia, many singing competitions have mediocre winner JUST because the winner's backstory, like from really poor family, etc.

Dang, I try to not bring it up. I know Americans have a lot of compassion but ultimately, country music fans on American Idol has always been a force to be recognized. Look at how country singers like Carrie, Crystal (maybe), Scotty, Lauren etc made it so far into the competition... you will know how much votes they get into the competition each year.

The background story is a plus, but look at Angie... Angie is partially deaf as well (although not mentioned in the homecoming video). If true fans of the show are really compassionate, Angie would have gotten a fair amount of votes too.

And not to forget, Kree's hometown is HUGE. Look at her whole theater of fans, as compared to Angie's "small field" and Candice's "huge backyard". With the crowd.. I sort of knew that Angie would somehow be in trouble, but I preferred to be blinded by the statistics on Youtube. Turns out, if you want to compare fans all over the world, Angie might have an upper hand. But just in America alone, I think Candice and Kree's fans prevails.

That said, I don't think it's any shocking elimination as they all expected Kree to go as they kept throwing her under the bus. But honestly, I knew Kree isn't going anywhere. Her hometown adores her and the backstory and her true sincere voice and everything.. I knew she was a shoo in into the finals. It was a matter of fact between Angie and Candice and when I knew Candice was the first person announced into the finals... Knew that it was game over for Angie.

:(

I didn't know that Angie has a hearing problem. I think that a lot of people (me included) didn't vote because we thought she was a shoe-in. :*(

I haven't felt this bad in a long time. Melinda Dolittle should have had a chance.. she didn't She didn't fit the marketing model. IMO.

Jessica Sanchez was another who didn't make it but at least she made it to the final two.  I really don't care about watching next week. Either one have their own good and bad points but they weren't my favorite and my interest has died. The only good thing is that Angie can now do her own thing and she will do just fine!

Yeah.. I just noticed about Angie's hearing problem like yesterday, when I read some AI reviews. I hope she'll get a contract soon and get famous! :luvya:

Don't forget Pia Toscano! Her elimination I think is one of the most shocking elimination (especially for an early boot)..

I don't care who wins at the finale either. I'm rooting for Kree only because AI sucks (a little of VFTW mentality) and is trying to throw Kree under the bus WEEKS AFTER WEEKS after all the boys were eliminated. I feel so bad for this girl and just want her to win to officially piss off the producers and everything.

Angie is the only winner in my heart this season. :hrt:

You all should see the amount of Angie fans that suddenly appeared out of no where. With every like and heartbreaking comment, and if everyone of them voted at least 50 times, I think we could have a 100 million votes for Angie alone. :lol3:

If they extend the voting so not only Americans can vote (and prolong the voting deadline), maybe I'll vote... :(

I tried to vote but a big "AMERICANS ONLY" notice appeared on the website and I'm like. Okay can. I tried to use proxy and managed to tweak my IP to get in 50 votes for Angie... but what is 50 votes when compared to the millions that Angie probably lacked?

Angie Miller Reveals A Record Deal is in The Works (VIDEO)

American Idol 12 finalist, Angie Miller revealed during a press day interview with New York City radio station, WPLJ, that a record deal with Interscope (presumably) is in the works, and that we would learn details sooner rather than later!

On talks with a label, Angie says, “They’re starting now, and I think…everything will be finalized after the finale.”

“That quick!” asked the DJ.  ”Yeah, that quick,” Angie replied. “I am so excited, you have no idea!”

Watch the interview below.

It was for the best, she didn't chance coming in second, and if she had won she'd be tied to the AI contract. Go Angie! :conf: :conf: :conf:
