The American Idol judges thought Amber Holcomb gave a near-perfect performance last week with her first song. Her second song wasn’t quite as amazing, but it was still a very hot performance. Week after week, Amber keeps delivering, but for some reason the viewers just don’t seem to love her as much as the judges do.
Despite never really having a bad performance on American Idol Season 12, Amber just hasn’t acquired the mass fan support like Angie Miller or Kree Harrison. She’s landed in the bottom several times and right now bets are strong that either Amber or Janelle Arthur will get eliminated on the show this week.
We think Amber is actually a better singer than Janelle, but she just seems to be missing some quality that makes her difficult to connect with as a fan. No matter how terrific she is, it is difficult to imagine right now that she could end up as the next American Idol winner. However, two really amazing showings on stage tonight just might inch her through to next week at least.
