By Shari Weiss



Angie Miller was heralded as “perfection” on Wednesday’s “American Idol.”

The Top 10 contestant performed Celine Dion‘s “I Surrender” — also covered by winner Kelly Clarkson in season 1 — and earned heaps of praise from the judges.

“And do I surrender, Angie,” began Keith Urban. “You’re such an artist and what I love is you can take a song from seemingly any era and make it seem like now… I thought you knocked it out of the park tonight.”

Nicki Minaj, who said Miller “looked like a billion dollars,” is “perfection on every level.”

“You personify perfection. The voice, there is no flaw,” continued the rapper, adding, “I can’t critique on anything because it’s just a thousand billion percent on point, and you are a superstar.”

Randy Jackson agreed, saying, “America, the competition starts now… That’s how you do it.”

“I think you can sing anything,” said the veteran judge. “It’s an absolutely amazing performance. I loved every part of it.”

Added Mariah Carey, “What did I think? Stellar!”
