Will Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur or Angie Miller face 'Idol' elimination?

“American Idol” front-runner Candice Glover does not have a wide range when it comes to fashion. But it doesn’t matter -- her vocal range is off the charts.

Janelle Arthur singing Garth Brooks' version of "The Dance" on "American Idol," sitting on the edge of the stage and doing nothing fancy with it.

Not bad; but also nothing special. She's out of her league with this season's powerhouse group, and at this point nothing to do but let her time on the show play out.

"Not your best performance ever," says Randy...

Candice Glover 'exquisite,' Janelle Arthur 'lackluster' on 'American Idol'

Janelle Arthur next on "American Idol," doing "I'll Never Fall in Love Again." It's instantly forgettable; vocals are fine, but she adds nothing special and it just seems like a cover.
