Angie Miller 'theatrical, dramatic' on 'American Idol'

Angie Miller closes "American Idol" on rock night sitting at the piano, doing Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life." Not a great song choice for me; doesn't get better when she gets up and moves around -- just oddly disjointed, didn't fit her. Hated all the strobe lighting too behind her, way too much going on. It's like she wanted to go big, but it didn't hang together for me.

Nicki Minaj liked the choice, but looking forward to her going back to her roots next week. Randy Jackson likes the "theatrical, dramatic" side of her, and liked her "tender moments." Which I didn't really hear any of tonight.... Mariah Carey just keeps rambling, I believe she liked it. 

Keith Urban says he wants to make sure "when you choose these songs that you feel it." Tells her not to be so conscious about the way she looks.

He's right -- she's so focused on the image, what she's trying to get across. And it's like, just be yourself, sing, don't try to be a star.
