The stage is now set for next week’s big finale of American Idol. On Thursday night’s edition of the Fox show, Kree Harrison, Candice Glover and Angela Miller learned who would be going home and who made the top two -- and the results surprised even the judges.
SPOILER: Who Was Eliminated On American Idol?
Angela gave it a good shot, but the Beverly, Mass. native finished last in voting after Wednesday's emotion-packed homecoming episode, leaving Candice and Kree to battle it out for the show's 12th season crown.
The results left judges Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban stunned, as Kree's harrowing backstory profiled a night earlier -- both of her parents died in accidents -- might have edged out Angie's superior musical acumen.
