Beverly native Angie Miller was eliminated from Fox's "American Idol" last week, so it's now between Texas's Kree Harrison and South Carolina's Candice Glover in a country versus soul showdown. Both contestants delivered solid performances during Wednesday night's show, so who should win in what appears a close contest at this point? The season finale where one is crowned the winner takes place Thursday, May 16, at 8 p.m.
"Dude, this is so close right now. Everybody go and vote," judge Randy Jackson said at the end of the show. "Amazing performances."
