American Idol 12: Top 4 Studio Versions Part 2

.. and for the second theme, it's One Hit Wonder, which was probably the most underutilized theme on the show EVER. This would've been an incredibly fresh and cool theme had they been creative with their song choices. Emotion and MacArthur Park weren't One Hit Wonders!!

RANDOM THOUGHTS: If I'm being honest, I didn't like most of the recordings mainly because of their song choices. Kree Harrison's take on A Whiter Shade of Pale is probably the most palatable of the four. Her phrasing is gorgeous and there's power to her delivery. Candice Glover's voice is pretty solid, as usual, but I just can't with the song choice. Angie Miller also proves here that she should NOT sing jazz songs. Oh, and I'm not even going to talk about Amber Holcomb and the disastrous MacArthur Park. I like Amber, but just NO.

Amber Holcomb: MacArthur Park
Angie Miller: Cry Me A River
Candice Glover: Emotion
Kree Harrison: A Whiter Shade of Pale
