The top three were revealed on the May 2 episode of ‘American Idol’ and everyone on the stage and behind the judges’ panel were in tears — are you surprised by the results?
First the girls sang Beyonce‘s “Crazy In Love.”
Then, Jimmy Iovine gave his comments on the girls last night. “She wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad enough to send her home,” Jimmy said about Angie Miller. Regarding Amber Holcolm, Jimmy said Amber sounded karaoke when she sang Pink‘s “Just Give Me A Reason” but thought that she crushed it with “Funny Valentine.”
Jimmy said Candice Glover did a magnificent job on both songs and said she was “head and shoulders above the rest.”
Kree “hasn’t lived up to her full potential,” said Jimmy and predicted her “good” (not great) performances might hurt her.
Former Idol David Cook debuted his new song “Laying Me Low” and then Will.i.am sang his new song “Bang Bang” from The Great Gatsby (in a cool 1920′s black and white performance).
Guest mentor Harry Connick Jr. (who I think should be a judge) sang his single “Every Man Should Know.”
And now, the results:
Angie and Candice were announced as safe. 81 million votes decided that Amber would be going home. The judges gave her a standing ovation as she watched her journey with tears streaming down her face. She barely made it through her encore performance as the rest of the contestants and Mariah all started crying.
