Note: This post was updated at 9:24 a.m. on May 3 with details on Angie Miller's visit to her hometown of Beverly. See below.
Angie Miller's heading home to Beverly this week, but not because she was voted off of "American Idol." The 18-year-old contestant was voted through to the next round of competition, and in turn ensured that she would get a hometown visit with the show's cameras in tow.
Beverly, beware: there is a parade on your horizon. Miller will be honored with a parade starting at 3 p.m. at City Hall, ending at Beverly High School for an outdoor concert. For more information on the concert specifics and the parade route, check out Boston.com's Your Town post.
Rounding out the top three performers were South Carolina's Candice Glover and Tennessee's Kree Harrison. Harrison and Glover will both head home and continue competing on the show.
Amber Holcomb, who was in the bottom two last week, was voted off during tonight's show.
Holcomb reprised "My Funny Valentine" to end the results episode, a fan and judge favorite which she performed during Wednesday's "Now and Then"-themed show (above). "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest ushered Holcomb's father, Phillip, onto the stage to comfort his daughter as she choked back tears during her final performance.
Do you think that the right person went home? Will you try to see Miller when she's in Beverly this week? Let us know in the comments. After that, get your questions ready for Sarah Rodman's chat about all things "Idol," scheduled for this Friday at 10:30.
