American Idol: Season 12, Week 15 :: Top 4 Performances

Apr 25, 2013

This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 15), the top 4 superstars sang two songs each, plus a duet. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 4 Performances,” which aired on April 24th, 2013 to discover what you missed.

The Top 4

This week the underdogs shined (not that there really are any underdogs left). The top 4 contestants - all worthy of winning this season - sang a duet as well as two solo songs each: the first was the contestant's choice, and the second was based on a theme picked by voters - One Hit Wonders.

Amber Holcomb

Amber opened the show with a powerhouse performance of Celine Dion's "Power of Love." It was absolutely flawless. She could not have picked a better song to show off her vocal range. Her second song was less dazzling, and it sparked a blowout between the judges and Jimmy. The judges claimed to love it, even though it was clearly a step down from her previous performance. But Jimmy, who gave feedback after the commercial break, said he thought the song was corny and even Amber couldn't pull it off. Jimmy was called up on stage during Candice's critique (rude!) to defend himself, but he stuck to his guns even though Nikki was prepared to strangle him.

Candice Glover

Candice made an interesting choice with her first song. She sang Drake's "Find Your Love," probably trying to appeal to a younger audience. The trouble was that she changed the arrangement of the song so much that it was almost unrecognizable, and it made the song sound older rather than modern. This might be the least positive critique Candice has received from the judges all season. Fortunately, she redeemed herself in her second performance of "Emotions" by the Bee Gees, which was later redone by Destiny's Child. The judges loved that she took her time with it and didn't overdo the runs. 

Kree Harrison

Sadly, Kree might be in trouble with week. Both of her songs tonight received unenthusiastic feedback from the judges. Her first was quite bluesy. The vocals were tremendous but she was missing that emotion that's required from all the singers now, since it's clear that everyone can sing. Keith told her she needs to poor her heart out in every song in order to win. Her second performance, of "Whiter Shade of Pale," was better. Mariah wanted to download it right away. But again, Keith said she still lacked the necessary emotion.

Angie Miller

Angie may have won this round. Her first performance was of Jessie J's "Who You Are," which she sang on the piano where she shines. The judges loved it and gave her a standing ovation. Her second performance didn't earn her a standing O, but Randy did say that it was the best performance of the night, which was definitely a stretch. Amber's "Power of Love" should have earned that title.

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
