American Idol

Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.

Courtney Williams, Britnee Kellogg and Jessica Phillips go diva on 'American Idol'

Divas Courtney Williams, Britnee Kellogg and Jessica Phillips next on "American Idol" -- Phillips tell us they "all sing for a living" outside of the show, so didn't rehearse with the band because they didn't want to waste anyone's time. Oh-oh.

Doing "You Keep Me Hangin' On" -- I mean, yeah, they're pros, but there's no spark, it's like a cover job. "Nice, ladies, nice" says Steven Tyler.

Jennifer Lopez basically tells them don't try to mess around too much, just sing the melody. "Almost made us feel like you guys didn't know the melody."

Kellogg moves on, is in tears; Williams too; but then Phillips, who's caring for her sick boyfriend, gets cut.

"I'm an actual artist, it doesn't seem like they're looking for real artists," she says, going on to rip everyone some more.

See, she doesn't get the show. It's not called "American Recording Artist." Gotta stand out, be compelling, make us want to watch. Not enough just to sound good in a studio.
