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 R&B vocalist Candice Glover of South Carolina, and country crooner Kree Harrison of Texas, to compete on next week’s finale, which will be judge Randy Jackson’s last show.
Michael Jackson’s longtime makeup artist testified Thursday that she overhead an executive for concert promoter AEG Live insist that the singer rehearse despite signs of declining health. Karen Faye told jurors she agreed with a fan’s assessment that the singer might die if he was pushed too hard in preparations for his “This Is It” concerts.
Faye testified she overheard a conversation in which “angry” AEG executive Paul Gongaware told Jackson’s assistant to “do whatever it takes” to get him out of a locked bathroom.
Faye is testifying in a case brought by Jackson’s mother, Katherine, against AEG Live LLC. The suit accuses the LA-based company of failing to properly investigate the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the singer’s death. AEG denies it hired Conrad Murray or bears any liability for Jackson’s death.
