Many American Idol viewers had Angie Miller penciled in for the finale, if not the win. But after competing against Candice Glover and Kree Harrison, Angie was shockingly eliminated in third place. And she was just as surprised as the audience.
"I felt confident in my songs Top 3 week. I thought I was going to make it," she tells TVGuide.com. "When they said that Kree was safe, it was just kind of like, 'Oh, wow, that really just happened. Oh, wow, that's what it feels like.'"
There was no shortage of heartbreaking stories to come out of Moore, Okla., this week, in the wake of a deadly tornado that left dozens of people dead and hundreds more homeless and/or injured. But amid the rubble, there was at least one uplifting moment when a woman reunited with her missing dog — while in the middle of a live interview for the evening news. In another unrelated yet equally gut-wrenching event this week, 18-year-old YouTube star Zach Sobiech lost his battle with bone cancer.

It's been more than 20 years since China Beach went off the air, and star Dana Delany says she hasn't revisited the series aside from catching a snippet of an episode while flipping channels a couple of years ago.
Candice Glover made American Idol history last week, becoming the only returning contestant to win the competition. Glover had auditioned in Seasons 9 and 11, making it as far as the Top 40 Vegas round last season before being eliminated.
"I said, 'Just this one more time. If it doesn't work this time, then I'll think of another avenue,'" Glover said she told her parents before her Season 12 audition. "I didn't really know who I was the first two years. ... I think this year I turned myself into more of an artist and I took a lot more chances."
