The final four ladies — Angie Miller (pictured), Amber Holcomb, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison — performed a song of their own choosing and then a “one hit wonder,” which apparently called for a time warp. Nothing from later than the ’70s! In it to win it tonight! “I think you’re so current and so now,” Randy Jackson lied through his teeth to Amber after she sang “MacArthur Park.” It was the judges’ most manipulative night yet, which is saying a LOT.

The judges claimed Angie won the night, criticized Candice for being old-fashioned, and demanded more from Kree — beautiful vocals are not enough. Meanwhile, Amber is the girl Nicki Minaj would most like to be friends with. Just in case you were on the edge of your seat wondering whom to vote for in this singing competition.
