The ladies are completely dominating Season 12 of American Idol, leaving our top five with Candice, Angie, Amber, Kree and Janelle to battle it out for the title of America’s Idol.
Continuing our weekly backstage chats with the contestants, Chelsea Briggs caught up with Angie Miller and Kree Harrison to talk this week’s theme “Diva Week” and why America should keep them in the competition. Plus, Angie reveals her super-secret celebrity crush!
Angie took the stage to belt out Beyoncé’s “Halo” and The Pretenders' “I’ll Stand By You,” which she dedicated to her hometown of Boston. Trying to fill the shoes of Queen Bey wasn’t an easy task for Angie, but taking the risk definitely played in her favor. “Dude, I was so nervous doing that song, but I’m so glad I did it. I love that song,” she said. “When I picked the song, I was like, ‘Should I really put this song on my list?’ And then I just did it and I’m so glad I did.”

After fan-girling over the thought of Beyoncé watching her performance, we just had to ask one hard-hitting question: who is her celebrity crush? “Secretly I’m a Belieber, I love Justin Bieber.” Welcome to the club, girlfriend!
Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Kree received the ultimate compliment after performing her “Diva Week” song -- Celine Dion’s “Have You Ever Been In Love.” The judges said she’s not country, she’s worldly! “It means everything,” she said about what the compliment meant to her. “I don’t just want to be relatable to country viewers. I want to be worldly -– I want to tour the world, share my music with everyone, so of course it meant the world to me.”
While one of the contestants could be heading home tonight, they won’t be away for long with the American Idol tour coming to us this summer! Tickets go on sale May 3rd -- find out more at American Idol’s site!
