Beverly woman makes 'Idol' top 10

BEVERLY — “American Idol” viewers were singing Angela Miller’s praises last night as the 18-year-old contestant prevailed over eliminations to become one of show’s 10 finalists.

“You did it,” Ryan Seacrest said.

Although Miller impressed the show’s judges in Las Vegas on Tuesday night with her live rendition of Colton Dixon’s “Never Gone,” it was up to the viewing public to vote which 10 of 20 contestants would advance to the next round of the popular show last night.

Miller briefly looked flustered after being told she was a finalist — “I don’t want to talk about it,” she told Seacrest — but she immediately went onstage and performed Beyonce’s “I Was Here” to much applause.

“That personifies what I love about this show,” Keith Urban said after her performance. “All you needed, baby, was a break. That’s all you needed.”

Miller, who graduated from Beverly High School in June and turned down several music scholarships in favor of trying out for “American Idol,” is now one of just five female contenders left on the show. Her advancement last night guarantees her a spot on the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2013 this summer.

The male and female finalists will all perform when Fox next airs “American Idol” on Wednesday at 8 p.m.
