Beverly’s Angie Miller awaits latest ‘American Idol’ vote

Continue reading below

Angie Miller took on a pair of songs on Wednesday’s episode of Fox’s “American Idol’’ and impressed the judges with both selections. First the 18-year-old Beverly native picked the Pretenders’ 1990s hit “I’ll Stand By You,” which she dedicated to Boston in the wake of Monday’s Marathon attacks. She performed while playing piano and earned raves from the judges, including Keith Urban who said Miller has a quality in her voice that makes him want to cry when she sings. Miller did a Beyonce track, “Halo,” during the diva-song portion. Judge Nicki Minaj raved that Beyonce “does [‘’Halo”] like a queen should” and Miller “did that song justice like a queen could.” Miller will find out Thursday if she advances to the top four on “Idol.”
