The ratings may not be there on American Idol Season 12.

But the talent is very much present.

With Janelle Arthur being eliminated this week, we are down to the final four – and any one of Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller could take the grand prize next week.

Who do we think deserves it? Once again, THG presents our American Idol Power Poll below, ranking the finalists from fourth to first…

4. Amber Holcomb. While her performance of “What Are You Doing For The Rest of Your Life” was technically flawless, it was old and a sleepy way to end the night. Amber struggles with the up-tempo numbers and isn’t as versatile as the other girls.


3. Kree Harrison. Kree falls to three this week after seeming disengaged during “She Talks To Angels.” Something just seemed off about her this week and we can’t quite put our finger on what it was. 

2. Angie Miller. Angie behind the piano is a can’t-lose and her cover of Beyonce’s “Halo” had everything that Amber’s (from the previous week) didn’t. Energy, emotion, and excellence. This was a great week for Angie.

1. Candice Glover. Her arrangement of “Straight Up” made the song fresh and cool and “When You Believe“? Well, after that performance the song should be retired from the Idol catalog. It’s unlikely anyone else will ever do it any better than Candice did. Unless we’re talking about Mariah herself, of course.
