Psy struts, Candice Glover and Jennifer Hudson join on 'American Idol'

Emeli Sande joins Amber Holcomb on "American Idol" to sing "Next To Me" -- it's a great pairing, their voices blend well and Holcomb more than holds her own.

She's got a voice that just slices through the static; you can't turn away when she's on stage.

Psy then strut out there, singing "Gentlemen." His flamboyance and utter confidence makes him always fun...

Angie Miller, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison or Candice Glover is about to be cut from "American Idol" — and as Nicki Minaj says, none of them really deserve to go; the best four made it to the end.

But only three can move on; and the first to make it is Miller, which is totally expected. She's most probably going to win this thing; hasn't been the best, but has been good and consistently...

Will.i.am, David Cook, Harry Connick, Jr. entertain on 'American Idol'

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.

David Cook, season seven's...

Will Amber Holcomb or Kree Harrison be gone on "Idol"?

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...

The final four girls on "American Idol" underscored the “now and then” theme of the Wednesday night show with fashion. But surprisingly the somewhat modern looks worn to perform current hits were a bit boring.  Most of the contestants looked better in formal ensembles inspired by classic songs from the past.

There was a dramatic difference between Amber Holcomb’s dull first...

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...

Amber Holcomb in tears despite standing ovation; Angie Miller ditches piano on 'American Idol'

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;...

Angie Miller 'bland, lackluster,' Amber Holcomb 'not stellar' on 'American Idol'

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...

TPTB (the powers that be) at “American Idol” reinvented their rule book last night when it was announced that no one was being eliminated and that this week's votes will be combined with next week's to decide who will be leaving the show.

So, the final four contestants – Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller, Kree Harrison and Candice Glover – will all get another shot at performing for America's votes...

"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...
