'Angie wins the night'

'Idol' impresses again as hometown crowd cheers her on


One of four contestants left on the show this season, Miller won’t know until tonight whether she’s gotten enough votes to stay on another week. If the show’s judges unanimously choose to, they can “save” a contestant from elimination — but only once during the rest of the season.

After Miller’s first performance, host Ryan Seacrest invited Miller’s visibly emotional grandmother up onstage, and Miller embraced her.

Later, Miller collaborated with Candice Glover on a much-lauded rendition of “Stay” by Rihanna.

“Unbelievable,” Jackson said. “That’s the way you do a duet.”

He added to Miller, “You’re on fire.”

Miller closed the show with “Cry Me a River,” a song written by Arthur Hamilton and popularized by Julie London that fit the theme of “one-hit wonders.” Afterward, she received another round of praise from all of the judges.

“You came out tonight to snatch some wigs off some heads,” Minaj said. “Tonight was your night.”

“Angie wins the night, hands down,” Jackson said.

Carey called the performance “elegant” and “beautiful,” while Urban said it was “mystical and celestially powerful.”

“A hot streak tonight for Angie, ladies and gentlemen,” Seacrest said.

Voting results will be announced when “American Idol” airs tonight on Fox at 8.
