I have been completely in the tank for Amber from day one.
But, if Amber didn’t go home this week, she would have gone home next week. From my perspective, I’m happy she lasted as long as she did.
Amber, based on the criteria of AI, was never going to win. Amber, based on the tastes of the AI audience, was never going to win.
Based on the criteria that matter to me?
Amber, out of all the contestants, has the ESSENTIAL voice. As good as the any of the rest of the finalists are, and I like, or at least “get,” every one of them, every other contestant is replaceable by someone else currently out in music. There are no other Ambers that I know of.
Harry Connick did Amber a great favor. I hope that she learns the important lesson he taught her. She has got to know what she is singing, what the song means, and what emotions and gestures connect with that meaning. That she was able to sing “My Funny Valentine” (the first time) and “I Believe in You and Me” as convincingly as she did tells me she has the instincts to get songs by listening to them. But her genuine understanding going forward is absolutely necessary.
I hope fervently that Amber will grow into the person she needs to be to make full use of her gift. I believe that if she does, she will become not only a singer that we want, but a singer that we need.

Amber Holcomb is a beautiful, talented young lady. I am amazed at the poise and confidence she displayed well beyond her 19 years. It was very disappointing not seeing her get to the final three. But, Amber has a lot to be proud of. She did great and went very far. l believe she will have a very successful career in music.

Candice deserves to win it all, doubtless.
Amber shouldn’t be sent home as 4th of the Final 4, her performing potential is absolutely the greatest and limitless out of Final 4.
Angie is great, lovely and will win lots of heart in the country. She has movie star quality too.
Kree, good but we have already witnessed her best potential during Season 12.

I was hoping to see Candice and Amber in the Final. But the best bet is Candice and Angie in the Final.

Best wishes to each of the Final 4. We really have enjoyed the Final 4 this year.

This is the end for me for american idol…Too racist!! and always the worst singers win (at leat the lat 3 seasons)…This time the juddes must be part of the decision… Kree is a good performer for Las vegas casino show and Angie is perfect for disneyland… candice and Ambre are much better than the other girls…but again America is racist…I’m sure the next one to be kicked off is gonna be Candice…Whatever..I’m dome with american idol…change the method let the judges to be part of the decision because the viewwer are a bunch of racists

Again, another reason why they should just cancel Idol. They allowed Amber, the one singer who could sing besides Candice and the most marketable, to go home. This is why with the exception of a handful, 90% of recent winners and contestants on Idol the past 4-5 years have suffered. Judges heaping overpraise on throwaway lounge singers, influencing the audience’s votes. Not everyone in the audience, but a majority. Idol has become a farce. I thought with having all females there would be some common sense to it. I was wrong. Hopefully, Candice will win and Idol can at least redeem itself.

Really? The final four are two black girls and two white girls….I think that means American is sexist. And if a while girls goes home next or if Candice wins…guess that means the blacks are racist. :P

Amber will be a star! She is just a bit young and needs to mature a little.
However in my opinion..White..and I am not racist.. Amber should have stayed..and Kree gone home.

Amber is a much better singer than Kree. Angie screams too much. Candice should win, she’s the best singer left!!

Amber is definitely better than Kree and Angie! She had more voice, more range, more power, more variety, appeal, charisma. Angie has beauty but no voice; she screams. Kree is boring, same tone over and over, puts me to sleep.

Kree should have gone home long time ago. I agree she has a good voice but what ever songs she sing they all sounded the same!!!! Candice and Amber are the ones with power vocals.

May I add.. In the past, all the white women became chart toppers while the black women, i don’t know. If Candice wins, she will be like Jordin/Fantasia. So it should be Angie! I can see her following the footsteps of Kelly/Carrie.

Just leave it to America, it’s American Idol after all, so America decides. I don’t think they’re being racist, they’re voting for those who they like and not those who they don’t like, why call it racism? And if that is so, Candice and Amber would’ve been elimated long ago. I still believe Angie will win because she has the qualities of an American Idol and not just the voice. She also has solid fans, unlike Candice’s and Kree’s because Candice get high votes only when her performance is good, and Kree gets low votes when she has a bad week. Angie has never been in the bottom so she definitely has solid fans which will support her all the way. I guess it will be Angie-Kree finale. And Angie will win.

It’s to bad anyone of these girls had to go. But the tragic part is that people can not have an opinion without being accused of being racist. That is pretty weak and thoughtless. Hopefully better minds can prevail with the race card excuse.

It is what it is..everyone has a different opinion and they are entitled it….. I can’t believe in this day and age people are blaming amber’s loss on race.. she was a great singer but she lost because she didn’t have the votes… plain and simple…

White professional male age 50 I voted for the first time for an Idol
Contestant and all my votes were for Amber Holcomb

My opinion both Angie and Kree should have went home leaving Candace and Amber in the finals

Angie is too broadway or a pageant singer

Kree is certainly a lounge or cruise ship performer

Both Amber and Candace are potential singers and mega record chart singers !

Somebody got this all wrong !

Same as you but almost a generation older, Jeff. I’ve also been for Amber all the way. But I’m living outside the US now, and cannot vote.

Most of what you say I agree with. Kree I think can be a country star. She’s not shining here because she is clearly not a fighter.

There’s nothing wrong with the results. It’s a popularity contest in front of the AI audience. Look at the demographics. AI themselves had to clumsily rig a season that ensured a girl would win.

Amber was never going to win. What I believe you like about Amber, which I suspect we like about her in common, is not a criteria for winning AI. Amber, as I continue to say, has the essential and unique voice. But AI is about performance, and about a certain kind of over-the-top performance. Subtlety is a virtue that the judges and the coaches may pick up on. But the AI audience is a pop music audience. What Amber has, most of these people do not have the receptor sites for.

Be glad we had the chance to enjoy Amber as long as we did. She’ll be back.

All four ladies are incredible singers and will have great careers. I thought the other girls were better than Kree, but the callers gave different results.

Yes great singers but lacking personalities, just ask Melanie Amaro (X-factor). Angie has the most potential to have success.

Clearly a racist result. They sent Amber home because she was too black. She was heads and shoulders above Kree, by a country mile.

i clearly nk it has a lot to do with racism on America part, There is no way Amber, the second best singer on the show should have gone home,. OMG she was being behind Cree, the judges even tried to tell America that Cree should go home. Amber and Candice are power houses and should have been the final two. did you people listen to her voice ? The voice of an angel. No way she should have gone home., I just dont think enough minorities are watching the show and voting. I am done with American Idol now. I am gonna watch the voice where judges actually make the decision. plus they will be on Wednesday nights, same time as Idol. So i know which one I will be watching
