In the world's ultimate talent search, where the eyes of a nation are upon the best undiscovered singers in the country, where the audience has the power to make or break you, and where a million-dollar recording contract is on the line, there is only one rule: If you can sing it, bring it.

Round of 3: Homecoming
May 9

We had a blowout performance by the final three last night. In fact, you could say it was "Epic" (in theatres May 24). But in an hour, one will come so close, only to be so far. Tonight, season 10 finalist Lauren Alaina, pop diva Alicia Keys, a world premiere video from Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson ain't the only one leaving. It's RESULTS NIGHT!

First, the top 3 sings Selena Gomez's "Who Says". 

Final Fan Mission is coming. It's simple, really... PICK THE CAR THE WINNER WILL DRIVE at AmericanIdol.com. As for the Idols, they're heading back to school to help a chorus find their voice.

Now it's time to break down the game tape.


If you remember, Jimmy originally gave it to Angie, saying that she rose to the challenge. But they all felt nervous. Angie chose not to play the piano on a song that set her up to play the piano. What was she thinking? She could've had a moment, but she didn't.

Jessica Sanchez is on Glee tonight. Apparently a big thing. Meanwhile, another person who lost to a WGWG is about to take to stage. Her new record is being recorded as we speak, and the first single is "Barefoot and Buckwild". It's online, go get it. People of the internet, I give you... LAUREN ALAINA!

Take a day to change your life. Auditions begin AGAIN this summer.

More game tape.


Jimmy gives it to Kree. We agreed. She had the best combination of backstory and song.

Pausing results to watch Mariah tutor the Idols for a moment... and then watch Mariah's new video. It's called "#beautiful" and it also features Miguel.

IDOL UPDATE: Adam Lambert had a couple of hits thanks to playing the strategy game, ultimately losing to Kris Allen. His latest album "Trespassing" is at #1 on the Billboard charts. He's currently in the Singapore leg of his world tour. He'll take his show to the finale next time.

Meanwhile, "Tears Always Win". That's the new one from... ALICIA KEYS!


Jimmy said, and we're quoting here... "Candice, you didn't win the round with ("Somewhere"), you won the NIGHT." She adds... "If she goes home, I'M GOING WITH HER." ... to cheers. Angie did well with "Maybe" by Emeli Sande, but not extraordinary.  The judges didn't like Kree's producer's choice, but Jimmy did. 

And now... the moment of truth. Three is about to become two...


The first person to sing for a title next week....

... is...


The second person...

... to sing for a title...

... is...


Unfortunately, that means that it's time for Angie Miller's final swan song. And the judges... are discussing... They're discussing, why are they discussing? Anyway, she's out of the competition, but something tells me we will be seeing more of her in the future.

Meanwhile, Angie gets played off with Colton Dixon's "Never Gone".

And the finale is set. The R&B diva from South Carolina vs. the country blues artist from Texas. One is going home with the title, the contract, and the presidents. The Coronation Round... IS NEXT!
