This is a historic week in the life of "American Idol." For the first time ever, the Top 5 is made up of all girls! After the Top 5 performances, we caught up with Kree Harrison, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb to find out how they felt about their all-female competition.Of all of the girls, Amber seemed to be having the most trouble adjusting to the loss of the boys. Although technically she was mostly missing Burnell Taylor and Lazaro Arbos. "Laz, he is my boo. I love him to death," Amber said. "He was always there for me. We would sing each other's songs in our rooms until 1 in the morning.It's not like Amber can't get along with the girls though. "We all eat together and stuff but I feel half my heart is missing," she explained. "We really don't have any drama. You'd think with five girls... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-interviews-amber-angie-candice-janelle-and-kree-talk-about-the-all-girl-top-5.html

'American Idol' interview: Angie Miller talks about singing after the Boston Marathon tragedy

This has been a tough week for everybody, but things have been especially hard for the people of Boston. Angie Miller, one of the five singers remaining on "American Idol" Season 12, comes from the city and had to compete soon after hearing news of the Boston Marathon bombing. After the Top 5 performance show, we talked to Angie about the tragedy and her week.Although Ryan Seacrest had started the "Idol" broadcast with a general message from the show to the city of Boston, Angie repeated the sentiment right before her first performance, dedicating the song to the people of her hometown. She then launched into a passionate rendition of "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders, accompanying herself on piano.What was she thinking about at the time? "I have lots of family, lots of friends who ran it and were there," Angie said. "I wish ... It's so weird but I wish I... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-interview-angie-miller-talks-about-singing-after-the-boston-marathon-tragedy.html

'American Idol': Nicki Minaj Tells Mariah Carey To 'Simmer Down, Sir'

The judges haven't been interacting with one another that much at all this season on " American Idol ." Perhaps that's because when they do, things get contentious as they did this week when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey disagreed on a critique. It all went down after Kree Harrison's performance when Nicki said she didn't agree with what Mariah was saying. Mariah interjected into Nicki's comments to try and clarify how they disagreed, because she didn't see it. "So, you don’t really disagree with me," she surmised at one point, but Nicki said she did. "I’ll explain," she said. "Oh, Okay. Because i disagree with your disagreement," Mariah said. "What? Okay. Simmer down, sir," Nicki responded, and that comment certainly got a reaction from the crowd. Did she just call Mariah Carey a "sir"? Yes, she did. Jimmy Iovine said it was nice to see the women communicating on the show. Maybe these are the baby steps toward a more healthy line of communication. The press seemed to side more with Mariah on this one, with The Hollywood Reporter shocked that Nicki "went there." All Hollywood Life could say about the mini-fued was, "Mmmkay." The drama -- and singing -- continues on "American Idol," Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. //feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/16713l85-hc/american-idol-feud-nicki-mariah-sir-video_n_3106520.html

'American Idol' Top 5: Has Amber Holcomb done enough to stay?

Here we go -- it's on like Donkey Kong on "American Idol" now. Janelle Arthur has lagged behind the other women some weeks, so we'd love to see her make smart song choices and make this a real dogfight for who moves on. For theme, Round 1 is Year of Birth and Round 2 is Divas. Year of Birth has ceased to be that much fun anymore, now that everybody is like 12 years old. Kidding, kidding -- but not really.1. Candice Glover, 1989, "Straight Up"She's doing the slow-jam, R&B-bordering-on-reggae version of Paula Abdul's big hit. It's ... interesting. We don't hate it and her voice is smooth as butter, as per usual, but for that year, we wouldn't have minded Candice having a nice ballad moment on "If You Don't Know Me by Now." Yeah, we wish she had done that Simply Red number. That was a great vocal, we just weren't in love... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-top-5-has-amber-holcomb-done-enough-to-stay.html
