In an emotion-filled episode, the Top 3 finalists returned to their hometowns to perform for the first time off of the 'American Idol' stage. The girls made their way through the crowded poster-filled streets of their cities and were met by ecstatic parents and family in a teary reunion. Kree Harrison was greeted only by her sister, after we learned she lost both of her parents.
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.
The Top 4 girls kicked off last night's 'American Idol' show with a group performance of Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love.' There's no easy way to say this to fellow 'Idol' Top 4 fans: it was horrible. It was an odd mix of something you'd see on 'Glee' combined with an Alvin and The Chipmunks remix.
Everyone knew Amber Holcomb would definitely be in danger for elimination tonight if she did not deliver a kick-ass performance on 'American Idol' last night. Luckily for the Texas native, her rendition of the popular jazz standard 'My Funny Valentine' received an absolutely well-deserved standing ovation.
Candice Glover can do no wrong. Both of her performances last night were incredible. Her first song choice, Bruno Mars' 'When I Was Your Man,' proved that she's even capable of crossing gender boundaries. "I love you on any kind of song,' Mariah Carey told the singing star.
Last week was all about celebration because all of the 'American Idol' contestants were saved, but on last night's episode, the home stretch of the season began and tensions were high. The top 4 ladies sang two songs each: one a recent song from 2013, and the other a "standard" classic.
