American Idol: Season 12, Week 16 :: Top 4 Performances

May 02, 2013

This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 16), the top 4 perform again without the judges save to keep them safe. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 4 Performances,” which aired on May 1st, 2013 to discover what you missed.

Nerves were on high this week, knowing that the judges no longer had a save to keep anyone from going home. The 4 remaining contestants each sang two songs: the first was a song released in 2013, and the second was a classic standard. Singer/actor Harry Connick Jr. joined the girls in rehearsals to offer some advice.

Angie Miller

Angie opened the show with "Diamonds" by Rihanna, making it her second week in a row of singing a Rihanna song. Last week's was a hit, but this one fell short. Even though she sung it while playing the piano, which the judges have always loved, they didn't like the choices she made in order to make it her own. Her second song, "Someone to Watch Over Me," had a Disney princess vibe based on the clarity of the notes. The judges said they could see her on Broadway.

Amber Holcomb

For Amber's first performance, she sang "Just Give Me a Reason" by Pink. During the video of her talking with Harry Connick Jr., the judges found her relatable. But when she performed on stage, she lost that spark. Granted this song has a very large vocal range, making it difficult to sing. Her second choice was "My Funny Valentine," which she sang earlier on in the season. The judges praised her, but her whole vibe was so defeated after her critiques from the first round that she couldn't hear the positive feedback.

Candice Glover

Candice made a bold choice by singing "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars, which is sung from a man's perspective. She didn't bother changing the pronouns to better suit her, but it didn't matter. As Keith always says "she killed it." Her second song, "You've Changed," earned her a standing  ovation.  The judges could feel the emotion in every word. Candice is the clear front runner this week!

Kree Harrison

For Kree's 2013 song, she chose "See You Again" by Carrie Underwood, the same song that Carrie herself performed on the show a few weeks ago. Truth be told, Kree sang it better! Nicki loved that she finally connected with the audience and sang with her eyes. There was some controversy over her second song choice, "Stormy Weather." The judges would have picked a different song for her, one that was more bluesy to fit her style.

That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
