American Idol is down to the top 4 girls and this is probably the best remaining contestants in the history of the show. It will be a tough call on who goes home tonight, but it is certain that the judges will use their tightly held “save”.
The fab four include; Amber Holcomb, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller. They all performed well during the all important road to the finals, but if I were to call it Kree may be on the bubble to go home. She was originally my pick to possibly go all the way and I truly never thought those words would leave my mouth. However, with Amber unleashing her full potential when it counts, there is some stiff competition.
It is probably the most profound thing Randy Jackson has ever said during his stint as a judge, but he was actually right. Amber is no doubt the most improved of all contestants this year and she now looks like a star. While the viewers did not seem to “get her’ along the way, I always knew she was an incredible singer.
Although it is finally the year of the ladies and a female is guaranteed to win after six years, this comes at the worst possible time. Unfortunately, with the addition of the extremely annoying Nicki Minaj, the ratings have continued to slide and viewers are beginning to tune out.
There is also one other problem with the show this year, none of them seem to have the magic of other flamboyant contestants of the past. I have waited for a Adam Lambert or Fantasia break-out moment and it just has not happened. The closest it got was the stellar piano performances given by Angie Miller and heartfelt belting of Candice Glover, but it just was not the same.
So who will end up in the finals head-to-head? This is a hard call, but it just may be an unexpected battle between Angie and Candice. Although it would not shock me if underdog Amber Holcomb, steps it up and blows Candice out.
Who do you think will win it all? Vote below and chime it. Based on recent performances, my prediction is that Angie just may run away with the prize. She is the only true artist this year, and writing her own music helps.
