At this stage in the "American Idol" competition, the four remaining finalists have developed signature styles both vocally and from a fashion standpoint.

While Amber Holcomb is unpredictable when it comes to what she’ll wear, we’ve come to expect some interesting, out-of-the-box looks from her. Last night was no exception. First, it was a long, lean white jump suit (or so it appeared)...

"American Idol" - Top 4: Candice Glover, Angie

Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller outshone Kree Harrison and Candice Glover as the fantastic "American Idol" final four sang a song of their own choice and then a one-hit wonder.

With all the vocal talent on stage it had the chance to be one of the show's best nights ever. It was not, due to some poor song choices; but it was still pretty good.

Below is how I ranked the performances;...

Angie Miller turns in 'elegant number,' Kree Harrison does 'middle ground thing' on 'American Idol'

Kree Harrison doing "A Whiter Shade of Pale" next on "American Idol." She's bringing her all, and it's enjoyable. But like everyone else tonight I don't think she picked a great one-hit wonder to sing. There's only so much you can do with a song that isn't that memorable.

Randy Jackson says "you redeemed yourself," calls it "brilliant." Mariah Carey...

Amber Holcomb has 'inner glow' on, Candice Glover gets judges 'grooving' on 'American Idol'

Amber Holcomb singing "MacArthur Park" next as "American Idol" does one-hit wonders, a theme chosen by audience vote. The song itself isn't that great; Holcomb performs it well, gives it a sense of fun and carries us along with her strong vocals. But only so much she can do with it.

Gets all the judges but Nicki Minaj to stand, though. "The sun has come out, you're...

Angie Miller and Candice Glover's duet gets ovation, Amber Holcomb and Kree Harrison 'like superheroes' on 'American Idol'

Amber Holcomb and Kree Harrison team up to sing Adele's "Rumour Has It" next on "American Idol." Holcomb's distinctive voice really cuts through; she simply sounds like a star. Harrison is strong as well; they've got Keith Urban rocking out in his seat.

Urban praises Holcomb's "commanding stance," calls it "riveting." Nicki Minaj says "you guys...

Angie Miller a '10 out of 10 out of 10,' Kree Harrison flops on 'American Idol'

Kree Harrison next on "American Idol," singing Susan Tedeschi's "It Hurts So Bad." Not crazy about the song choice -- not that well known and it starts off a bit sedate, and she's swallowing some words. It gets better as it goes on, but we've seen better from her.

Randy Jackson says "I don't know if it's the best vocal I've heard from you," calls it a bit...

The "American Idol" fantastic final four -- Angie Miller, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison and Candice Glover -- are set to perform a song of their choice and then a song based on a fan-chosen theme tonight (the buzz is it's one-hit wonders.)

It's easily the best final four ever; really looking forward to the night, everyone fully deserves to be here and there are no weak links.

"American Idol" is cutting to five finalists tonight; they're playing the game where they have contestsants go into three different groups on stage -- Angie Miller, Lazaro Arbos and Kree Harrison are asked to start each group. 

Scotty McCreery then returns with "Gotta See You Tonight." He's so smooth and at home up there; a bit hokey at times, but fun to listen to....

Will Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur or Angie Miller face 'Idol' elimination?

It was the best of performances (Candice Glover), it was the worst of performances (Lazaro Arbos) on last night’s “American Idol.” And it was also the most mediocre of performances (Janelle Arthur). So it’s no surprise that our “Idol” psychics expect either Arbos or Arthur to be sent home on tonight’s results show.

Four of our eight psychics believe Arbos, this season’s Latin-flavored version...

“American Idol” front-runner Candice Glover does not have a wide range when it comes to fashion. But it doesn’t matter -- her vocal range is off the charts. On Wednesday night, the much-praised contestant wore mostly black -- once a soft cowled black shirt topped by an off-white snakeskin, studded leather jacket and snakeskin black leggings -- and for her second performance, a simple black, short-sleeved...
