Beverly’s Angie Miller soars on ‘Idol’

According to judge Nicki Minaj, Wednesday was Angie Miller’s night on “American Idol.” The Beverly native scored high marks all around for her three performances on the Fox singing competition. A major Jessie J fan, Miller performed that singer’s “Who You Are” during the “contestant’s choice” part of the show and was given a standing ovation by three of the four judges for the piano ballad. (Judge Mariah Carey said she refrained from standing only because her chair was on the train of her dress.) Miller, along with fellow top four contestant Candice Glover, brought most of the judges to their feet with their duet of Rihanna’s “Stay.” After her final performance of the torch song “Cry Me A River,” her choice for the “one-hit wonder” theme, judge Keith Urban deemed her performance “mystical and celestially powerful.” Miller will discover if voters agreed with the judges on Thursday’s elimination episode at 8 p.m. on Ch. 25.
