With 'Idol' over, Angie Miller is poised for next step


“For months, there were posters and billboards (of her) and stuff everywhere,” she said. “In Beverly, it’s unreal the amount of people that will just stop me and say hi and take a picture. It’s not difficult, but it definitely can get tiring, just because I can’t just walk out of the house. I say to myself, ‘Dang, I have to do my hair, I have to put my makeup on,’ because you never know when somebody’s going to take your picture. You have to be careful.”

Miller has learned that even wearing her hair in a ponytail, as she did for a couple of days last week, can attract notice.

“Not to this scale, but it’s like when Miley Cyrus cut off her hair,” she said. “It’s funny how with those little things people go nuts.”

After the Topsfield Fair, Miller is scheduled to perform at Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman’s charity event on Oct. 19 in Weston and at the ABCD Awards Gala on Nov. 1 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel.

She will also serve as spokesperson for the New England Walk4Hearing on Oct. 27 in Boston.

In January, she will move to Los Angeles with her best friend from high school, Lydia Hester.

“My parents are supportive of me moving out there to LA,” she said. “Of course, they’re sad, too.”
