'American Idol': Who Had Three Outstanding Performances and Was "Best of the Night"?
Someone really stepped it up last night!
Now that it's down to the final four on Idol, it's important for the finalists to leave everything on stage when they perform. And last night, while one of the girls did that, another fell a little short and received some harsh feedback.
"Constructive criticism is not a bad thing for me," Kree Harrison told us after the show. "It'll make me challenge myself." The judges have been telling Kree she's lost the connection to her song choices. "I mean every word that I say whenever I sing," she insisted. "But I want y'all to believe me. I'm going to have to show that more."
Candice Glover took a big risk this week, "I was worried about what she was going to say because Drake is one of her good friends," Candice said about Nicki Minaj after performing Drake's "Find Your Love."
For Candice's duet with Angie Miller ("Stay" by Rihanna), "We said we're pissed at each other" to get into the right mindset, Candice explained. "Angie said 'I'm going to give you a scenario, Drake is mine!'"
Amber Holcomb, who wasn't in the bottom for the first time last week said, "Not being in the bottom made me feel so much better about being here." And that definitely showed on stage. "I feel really good, I did what I was supposed to do with those songs."
But receiving a "Tonight was your night" from Nicki and a "Best of the night" from Randy Jackson was Angie. "I'm proud of myself," Angie told us. "I feel like I was able to show the judges that I've learned and grown." Angie's solo performances were Jessie J's "Who You Are" and "Cry Me A River" by Julie London.
Though the real show stopper (in a good way) was her duet with Candice. "We weren't expecting that," Angie told us. "When we first started working on it we were like, 'This is not good,' we were terrified."
But fortunately for them, "It turned out to be one of the most amazing things ever," said Angie. "I can't wait to watch it back!"
