The best four finalists ever on “American Idol” are going to be chopped to three tonight — and they remind us right off the bat about how good they are with a rousing version of Beyonce's “Crazy in Love.“
It's pure energy flying around the stage, with strong vocals from everyone. Rare that a group sing meshes as well as this; even the choreography is inspired.

Did Amber Holcomb just give us a reason to see her say goodbye on tonight’s “American Idol” results show? Or will it be stormy weather for Kree Harrison?
Four of our nine “Idol” psychics predict Amber will be headed home tonight, especially after her wobbly performance of Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason,” her first number on last night’s Then (2013) and Now (a standard) themed show. Let’s just...Read more »
Amber Holcomb, tears and all, tops Angie Miller, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison on 'American Idol'
Amber Holcomb's "My Funny Valentine" got a standing ovation from the "American Idol" judges and easily topped an uneven night for the four finalists, as the growing pressure to win votes -- and well-meaning but cascading advice from judges and guest mentor Harry Connick Jr. -- took its toll.
Even Holcomb's tour-de-force turned bittersweet. Nicki Minaj, who along with...Read more »
Candice Glover next on "American Idol" as the finalists do their second song, which has to be a classic. Singing "You've Changed" -- she's good, but the song itself doesn't do a whole lot for me. No emotional connection; I wind up tuning it out a bit.
Randy Jackson called it "amazing," loved her vocal perfection. Mariah Carey says, "the only critique...Read more »
Angie Miller singing her second song -- which can be any classic -- on "American Idol." Doing "Someone to Watch Over Me," which she says her mom used to sing to her.
She's not at the piano, which is usually the kiss of death for her; and sure enough, comes across a bit vampy. Ah, but that voice... tender, soft, slow. No goosebumps, no moment, you can even call it cheesy;...Read more »
Candice Glover up next on "American Idol," singing Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man." Starts so smooth, so in control; has made the song her own, with perfect vocals that soar without going over the top.
Impossible to listen to her without nodding your head or tapping your feet; she just carries you along.
"Yo -- this girl right here, that's how you sing a song!"...Read more »
Harry Connick Jr. is back on "American Idol" as a guest mentor, with the four finalists singing a song from 2013 and then a classic song tonight.
Angie Miller up first, singing Rihanna's "Diamonds" while seated at the piano. Nice crackle in her voice; brings her usual sense of drama and touch. Not a great song choice for me -- it's inherently a limited song and there's...Read more »
"American Idol" is about to cut to its top three — or maybe not, with the show promising a "surprise twist" tonight.
Lee Dewyze, who won season nine and has been one of the least notable champs, singing "Silver Lining." He's still got that great tone; not sure he'd have even made the top five this year though.
They then review Angie Miller's performance...Read more »
"American Idol" is cutting to three finalists tonight -- or are they? Ryan Seacrest promises a "surprise twist" so we'll see. They start things off with the group singing Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire."
It's a strong, enjoyable performance; choreography isn't anything special and they don't interact much, but oh those voices...
Amber Holcomb up first; her rendition...Read more »
Oh, the drama! Oh, the suspense! OMG!
Ryan Seacrest has promised a “surprising twist” on tonight’s “American Idol” results show. Could it be that the judges’ save could still come into play, even though its expiration date was officially two weeks ago?
And really, how mean would it be to send any of these four home after they did a micro-sized version of “Idol Gives Back” by visiting...Read more »
