Before you watch the "American Idol" Season 12 Top Four Redux results show live or online for free, here is a preview of episode 33.
On Wednesday's "American Idol" Season 12 Top Four Redux performance show, the remaining competitors tackled current hits and standards. Erin Carlson of Hollywood Reporter claimed that Candice Glover won the night after receiving two standing ovations from the judges. The first came after her take on Bruno Mars' current hit, "When I Was Your Man," while the second came after she sang the classic "You've Changed."
Glover did appear in the bottom two last week, and the votes from then will carry over to Thursday's results show. Still, she appears the least likely to go home just based on Wednesday's performances alone.
The other ladies, however, could be in some trouble. Bill King of BuddyTV predicted even before the "American Idol" episode began that Amber Holcomb would go home, mainly because she has appeared in the bottom two numerous times (including last week). Her first song did her no favors, as the judges picked apart her take on Pink's current smash. Annie Barrett of EW.com also called it "embarrassing," particularly when Holcomb struggled with the lyrics during her mentoring session with Harry Connick, Jr.
Holcomb also had issues preparing for her second song of the night, "My Funny Valentine." While she did perform the number on a previous episode, Connick helped her realized that she had no idea was the lyrics actually meant. Indeed, Brian Mansfield of USA Today argued that this disconnect with songs is the reason Holcomb has not been as popular with the public. She recovered in time to give a solid vocal performance, but the poor edit in both of her pre-performance videos might cost her a spot in the "American Idol" Season 12 final three.
Angie Miller's performances were more polarizing. Michael Slezak of TVLine felt she struggled with pitch on both of her songs, and the judges criticized her arrangements of both "Diamonds" and "Someone To Watch Over Me." Liz Raftery of TVGuide, however, deemed her former performance one of the best of the night. While Miller did get the dreaded first position on Wednesday's episode, her large fanbase could easily push her into the next round.
The final contestant, Kree Harrison, got the coveted final performance slot on the "American Idol" Season 12 Top Four Redux performance show. But while the judges raved about her version of a Carrie Underwood hit, several of them felt that "Stormy Weather" was a poor choice for her standard. Randy Jackson got into an argument with Connick after this latter song, which may have detracted from Harrison's performance. This, combined with the lukewarm reviews for that second song, could mean she is in trouble on Thursday night as well.
