'American Idol': Amber Holcomb takes on Whitney Houston and does her proud


Amber Holcomb - Top 10 Girls - American Idol 12 by IdolxMuzic

For her Top 10 women performance, Amber Holcomb took on a big ol' Whitney Houston number, which is almost an "American Idol" no-no. Luckily, the adorable young girl pulled it off effortlessly on "I Believe in You and Me."

"Good lord ... what a perfect song for you. Your voice is beautiful," says Urban. Nicki says, "That was a 10. Billion." And Randy adds his ubiquitous "in it to win it," while Mariah says, "You can sing your behind off."

She really can. Amber Holcomb has kind of come out of nowhere in these Vegas rounds. But we like her sound. The only thing we would maybe change is that she dial it back on her runs sometimes. But she should be advancing tonight, right "Idol" voters?
