We're moving right on to Kree Harrison, the 22-year-old demo singer from Nashville. She talks about working in the business and paying your dues, which is kind of the opposite of what American Idol is all about, but whatever. As promised, she's doing another country song -- this one a gospel ballad -- but she seems destined to break tonight's curse. She's probably got the best voice we've heard thus far tonight, with this sort of Pam Tillis quality and she gets a Standing O from Keith and Nicki. Keith talks about how much he loved it and how effortless her performance was. Nicki tells Kree that the other girls tonight should be very scared and goes on about how she makes love to the song. Randy agrees that Kree is a natural-born singer, and Mariah talks about how Kree gets sincerely lost in the song and sings the hell out of it. Kree says to Ryan that this is all she ever wanted to do and thanks everyone. She's in a good position to do so.
Angela Miller is up, after her game-changing performance last week. She makes me feel old by talking about watching American Idol for the first time when Ruben Studdard beat Clay Aiken. And look how that turned out. Man, even I was still watching this show then. Tonight, her styling's a little overdone as she belts out "Nobody's Perfect." Keith says she's great and doesn't need to overcompensate in any way, which I think is a polite way of telling her she's overcompensating. Nicki says this was a step down from her original song last week and advises her not to overdo anything. "You're an artist, period." Randy gushes about how she's one of his favorites and she's going places. Mariah talks about last week's song and tells her to keep writing, which is probably not as encouraging for her prospects in this singing competition as Mariah intends it to be.
