Angie Miller Falters, Upsets Judges For First Time on American Idol (VIDEO)

Is Angie Miller about to lose her frontrunner status?

On Wednesday’s “American Idol,” all four judges criticized the favorite contestant for the first time, after she took on Smokey Robinson’s “Shop Around.”

“It’s the first time ever that I’ve seen you on this show have such a pitchy performance,” complained Randy Jackson. “You’re usually so right on.”

Mariah Carey questioned why Miller didn’t choose a song more suited to her vocal style, such as “I’ll Be There,” while Keith Urban pointed out that despite this let-down, her talent is still “undeniable.”

For Nicki Minaj, though, it wasn’t a question of talent or melody, but why Miller felt the need to stray so far from her proven strengths.

“I think you came out today to try to show a different side of Angie that didn’t need to be shown. You need to stop and enjoy that people are loving what you’re doing,” said the rapper.

“Don’t try to come out here and give us another side,” added Minaj. “We didn’t ask for another side yet.”
