Amber Holcomb Comforted by Father After Final Song on ‘American Idol’

Amber Holcomb received the least votes during last week’s elimination and was at risk of being sent home, but was able to remain on the show for one more week because of the judges’ “save.” Last night on ‘American Idol,’ she looked very nervous and emotional during her performances. Regardless, she sang beautifully, giving us hope that she would be saved again.

“I’m just happy that America got the best four of the competition to the top four,” judge Nicki Minaj said before the elimination.

Sadly, the Houston native was sent home as a result of last week’s mediocre performances, which left her with not enough combined votes to keep her on the show.

Even though Nicki urged, “No tears tonight,” the remaining three contestants all cried as Amber sang her final tune, ‘I Believe in You and Me’ by Whitney Houston. Even Mariah Carey and Nicki shed some tears.

Amber’s father was brought to the stage by Ryan Seacrest to comfort the R&B centric ‘Idol’ star, who was not afraid to cry on her daddy’s shoulder.
