Angie says goodbye

Beverly's 'Idol' eliminated from competition last night

Her success for the first two performances was especially pronounced given she opted not to do them at the piano — a strength of hers that was often referred to on the show. The judges commended her for stepping outside her “comfort zone.”

But music producer Jimmy Iovine wasn’t as sure. Last night, before the results were announced, he said Miller won the first round of performances on Wednesday night — during which the women performed songs of his choosing — but that he’d deliberately assigned her an Elton John piece with a strong piano part, only to see her rely on a show musician to perform it.

“To me, that was a big mistake,” Iovine said. “Because of that, I gave her 9 out of 10.”

Also before the results were announced, Miller collaborated on a performance of “Who Says” by Selena Gomez with Glover and Harrison.

Less than an hour before last night’s show began, Miller tweeted that her family had gotten matching “Dream Big” tattoos — her brother on his head, her mother on her ankle and her father on his arm. Miller sports the tattoo on her back.
