'American Idol' down to final 2 singers

By

LOS ANGELES -- "American Idol" finalist Angie Miller won't be tickling the ivories on this season's final showdown.

The piano-playing 19-year-old singer from Beverly, Mass., was revealed Thursday to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest, leaving 23-year-old R&B vocalist Candice Glover of St. Helena Island, S.C., and 22-year-old country crooner Kree Harrison of Woodville, Texas, to compete for the show's record deal grand prize on next week's finale.

An emotional Miller could barely make it through her swan song, a rendition of former "Idol" contestant Colton Dixon's "Never Gone."

Glover and Harrison will face off Wednesday, with the 12th season "Idol" champion crowned on Thursday. Both women have found themselves at the bottom of the show's voting spectrum once during the competition.
