On Wednesday night, the four remaining "American Idol" contestants performed a song of their own choosing, along with a one-hit wonder selection. With two chances to impress, the remaining gals gave it their all in hopes of surviving another round.
Amber Holcomb took on Celine Dion's "The Power of Love," and Nicki Minaj called the singer "a big sexy glass of milk." The judges praised Holcomb's vocals, with Randy Jackson calling her a "pro." Holcomb's second performance -- Richard Harris' sole hit "MacArthur Park" -- was also a hit with the panel. "You're blooming for the world to see," said Minaj. "Out of the four girls in the competition, you're the one I would want to get to know."
But Angie Miller really nailed it when she sang Jessie J's "Who You Are," with Jackson saying it was "10 out of 10 out of 10 for me...Best performance of the night." Miller received a standing ovation from all the judges except Mariah Carey, who said the only reason she didn't stand was because the train of her dress was caught on her chair. Miller kept up the momentum with a version of "Cry Me a River," made famous by Julie London in 1955. Minaj said, "Tonight was your night," while Keith Urban called it "mystical and celestially powerful."
Candice Glover, who was suffering from a cold, said she didn't initially mention her illness because she didn't want to use it as an excuse. Either way, her first performance of Drake's "Find Your Love," was lukewarm. Jackson told Glover that she can't always sound like she's "in church." Glover also sang "Emotion" -- made most famous by the Bee Gees, a winning performance apparently, as Mariah Carey called it "super-duper-superstar quality girl."
Kree Harrison took on Susan Tedeschi's blues song, "It Hurt So Bad," but it failed to win over the judges. "That is not a Top Four-worthy performance. I need you to get back into being Kreedom," said Minaj. Harrison also took a shot at Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" for her one-hit wonder selection, a better choice apparently. "Just let the world know right now, with you singing that, you know what will never be your problem? Singing," said Jackson. "I'm going to go download that right now, because I need it on my phone," Carey added.
"American Idol" will say goodbye to one contestant on Thursday night when "American Idol" returns on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.
