Angie Miller took on a pair of songs on Wednesday's episode of 'Idol' and impressed the panel of judges with both selections.
First up the 18-year-old Beverly native picked a song from the year she was born, The Pretenders' 1994 hit "I'll Stand By You," which she dedicated to Boston following Monday's Marathon attacks. She performed while playing the piano and earned rave remarks from the panel, including judge Keith Urban who said Miller has a quality in her voice that makes him want to cry whenever she sings.
Next, Miller took on a Beyonce track "Halo" during the diva-song portion of the night. Nicki Minaj raved that Beyonce "does ["Halo"] like a queen should," and Miller "did that song justice like a queen could."
Tune in to Fox Thursday at 8 p.m. to find out if Miller advances to the top four.
