'American Idol' Recap: The Top 4, Part II

If you're wondering why the cover photo looks the same as last week, it's because it's nearly identical, except without as many flailing arms (much to Angie Miller's dramatic disappointment). In its quest to crown the first female champion in five years, American Idol has suffered from a predictability problem in season 12. And all efforts to correct said issue have only succeeded in making it worse.

But as we enter the second week of the top 4 (a.k.a. the judges' last-ditch effort to convince America to love Amber Holcomb), it is officially out of their hands. Sort of. Because while they can still try and influence voters, they have to realize that all their concerted efforts have backfired so far, evident in the revelation of last week's bottom 2.
