Amber Holcomb nabs the second-to-last spot in the Top 10. Riding off the success of last night's "I Believe in You and Me," she goes for another Whitney Houston song, "I'm Every Woman."

She could have really pulled out all the stops with this dance-worthy jam, but she doesn't. Mariah Carey, for one, is impressed. "I don't even know what to say," she admits.

Who will take the last spot?

Turns out it's Kree Harrison, whose elimination would have been shocking to say the least.

For her victory song, it's a version of Susan Tedeschi's "Evidence" that's country mixed with a whole lotta rock 'n' roll. Perfect for this shining star who really seems to do no wrong.

No time for feedback from the judges, but they sure looked pleased.
