All good things come in threes, and now more so than ever! AMERICAN IDOL revealed that the Top 3 finalists are Angie Miller, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison. In a surprising twist unveiled last week, votes were combined from the Wednesday night performance shows on April 24 and May 1 in a special AMERICAN IDOL two-week showdown. Host Ryan Seacrest revealed that Holcomb received the least number of votes for those two weeks and was sent home.
IDOL's Top 3 finalists will head home for a special homecoming this weekend. Upon hearing the news, each of the singers revealed what they're most looking forward to:
Angie: “Making the Top 3 means everything to me! I can't wait to meet everyone who has supported me and got me this far in the competition.
Candice: “I'm mostly looking forward to seeing firsthand what the support has been like at home, because I hear about it all the time. It would mean the world to make the Top 3, because that means everything I've worked for is finally falling into place.
Kree: “What I'm looking forward to most is being able to celebrate with my friends and family in my hometown and being able to hug each of them to thank them for supporting me.”
Tune in next week, Wednesday, May 8 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when Angie, Candice and Kree return to their hometowns and find out what songs the judges and Jimmy Iovine have chosen for them to perform. Each finalist will sing three songs: “Judges' Choice”; “Jimmy's Choice”; and “IDOL's Choice.”
Don't miss the live results show the following night, Thursday, May 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the final two divas remaining on IDOL will be revealed. Plus, multi-Grammy Award winning artist, Alicia Keys, will take the stage to perform her new single, “Tears Always Win,” from her hit album, “Girl on Fire.” Also, country artist and Season 10 runner-up, Lauren Alaina, will perform her new single, “Barefoot and Buckwild” for the first time ever on the IDOL stage.
