'American Idol': Angela Miller's original 'You Set Me Free' blows away the competition

Angela Miller - Solo - American Ido 12 by IdolxMuzicFor the solo round on the last day of Hollywood Week on "American Idol," the contestants were allowed to sing original songs if they so chose, which is always a gamble. Angela Miller was one of those contestants, but for her, it wasn't a gamble at all, as it turns out. Her "You Set Me Free" was a gorgeous piano piece that featured soaring vocals. The judges were visibly blown away and kept making exclamations during her performance about how impressed they were. After she was finished, Keith Urban said he would play that in his car right now and Nicki Minaj said it was a Top 40 hit. What did you think of Angela Miller's performance? We think she's definitely on to watch this season....
