Looking for the latest on American Idol 2013 Season 12 contestant Angela Miller? We have all the latest American Idol Angela Miller spoilers, news, gossip and more on theSeason 12 contestant!
Name: Angela Miller aka "Angie Miller"
Sure, nobody’s perfect, but when it comes to American Idol 2013 contestants, Angela Miller is pretty close to the full package. We got to know the 18-year-old from MA by learning about her moving backstory, as she has gone through life with 40 percent hearing loss in one ear.
However, what’s even more memorable about her is that voice, as she knocked her audition song, Jessie J’s “Mamma Knows Best", out of the park. She’s proven to be quite the Jessie J fan, as she has since done equally stellar renditions of Jessie J’s hits "Who U R" and "Nobody's Perfect.”
However, the song that really “set” Angie apart from the pack was her original song, "You Set Me Free,” which she performed on piano during the Hollywood week solo round. The powerful tune with amazing vocals immediately earned her a standing ovation from the judges, and it led to Randy saying the word “wow” about six thousand times. Not that we blame him.
It’s no secret that Angela is a definite front-runner, as Keith Urban told us during a conference call that her singing is “superb.” So between her attractive looks, powerful voice, and heartwarming story, we’d say that anyone who’s picking Angie to win it all would certainly seem to know best.
