For the first time in IDOL history, the Top 5 finalists are all girls. After finalist Lazaro Arbos was sent home this evening, the remaining ladies – Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller – will continue to battle it out on stage in hopes of becoming the first female AMERICAN IDOL winner since Jordin Sparks in Season Six.
From Naples, FL the 22-year-old Arbos sang “Angels” by Robbie Williams and “(They Long To Be) Close To You” by The Carpenters on last night’s performance show. In addition, on tonight’s results show, multi-platinum-selling artist, and the very first AMERICAN IDOL ever, Kelly Clarkson, performed her new single, “People Like Us” and Season 10 winner and platinum-selling artist Scotty McCreery also performed his new single, “See You Tonight.”
Next week, on Wednesday, April 17 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 5 fabulous females return to perform for America’s votes as they take one high-heeled step closer to the IDOL crown.
On the next live results show airing Thursday, April 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), one woman’s IDOL journey will end. Also, Grammy-winning artist, Broadway star and Season Three winner of AMERICAN IDOL, Fantasia, will perform her new single, “Lose To Win,” and Season Two runner-up Clay Aiken also will perform.
