'American Idol' Top 3 interview: Angie Miller talks Miley Cyrus, surprise songs and going home
How do you think everyone did tonight?
Angie Miller: Honestly I would hate to be America. I feel like we all have already won. I am so proud of Candice and Kree, and I'm proud of myself that we've made it this far and we've done so good this far in the completion. And I don't know. We all want to make it to the finale
Was it scary not being able to pick your own songs for the Top 3?
Angie Miller: I was freaked out when weren't able to choose any of them and then I really liked my song choices. Which was really good because I thought I was going to hate them all.
Were you familiar with the songs?
Angie Miller: I didn't know any of them! I knew "Try" a little bit just from hearing it on the radio, but Elton John I had no idea and the Emeli Sande I didn't hear before.
How emotional was your trip home?
Angie Miller: It is just so overwhelming. Not in an "Oh my gosh this is so scary" overwhelming but overwhelming in like a "Wow, I can't believe this is actually really happening right now!" It was so emotional and I don't know. It was amazing
What was the highlight of the hometown visit for you?
Angie Miller: Probably the concert and playing on stage with my brother and his band again. I love playing with them and that was just like the best feeling ever, playing with them again. And the amount of people there, I feel like the concert was probably my favorite part.
Was that the biggest crowd you have ever played to?
Angie Miller: Oh yeah! I mean yeah. I know there are millions of people watching "American Idol" but it's not the same as being there.
Did you play any songs with your brother for the concert?
Angie Miller: All of them. He plays drums and acoustics so he kind of just switched off.
Has he ever tried out for "American Idol"?
Angie Miller: No. But back when I made the Top 40, "American Idol" gave us these little flip cams and told us to film things. I was like, "John, would you ever try out for 'American Idol'?" He was like "No." But then I said, "But if you win, I will try out." We shook on it ... and now he's probably like "Oh cr*p!"
What did you think of the Miley Cyrus comparison?
Angie Miller: I get that every day of my life! I'm not kidding. Every day. So many times. On Twitter. Everywhere. So I'm very used to that so when she said that I was, like, "Okay. I was expecting that at some point in the competition."
Are you a Miley fan?
Angie Miller: I mean, I loved her ... When it was on Disney, I was just all about "Hannah Montana." That's when it all started.
Did you have a blonde wig like Miley?
Angie Miller: I actually had one once as a joke. I wore it once. I think it was for Halloween or something
We need to see a picture of that!
Angie Miller: No you don't. It was terrible. But yeah, I get that all the time. They say I even talk like her!
