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.'"read more
American Idol Season 12 runner-up Kree Harrison says she has no regrets about her time on the show, even deciding to let eventual winner Candice Glover close out the finale.
"People are asking me why I chose to go first and honestly, it was in the moment," she tells TVGuide.com. "I just said, 'Where do you want to go, first or last?' And Candice said last, and I don't care because I get to perform at the finale, whether I'm performing first or second."
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."
