Amber Holcomb is the latest “American Idol” contestant to pack her bags.

The Houston native is known for effortlessly sangin’ hits from divas like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Beyonce. But, her performances of Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason” and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart’s “My Funny Valentine” weren’t enough to keep her on the show this week.

Ryan Seacrest revealed that, after 81 million votes in a two-week period, the 19-year-old songstress would be going home.

This wasn’t Amber’s first rodeo. The soulful singer auditioned for the singing-competition show last year but she was eliminated in the Top 40 round.

America now has 3 finalists to choose the next “Idol” from, including Candice Glover, Angie Miller and Kree Harrison.

We are more than confident that Ms. Amber will go on to take the music world by storm. Let’s take a look back at 5 of her most powerful performances.

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    It’s true that Amber is a diva singer in-the-making, but unfortunately that didn’t help her avoid elimination this week. I work at DISH and several of my friends there think that this week was the most difficult since all four ladies could arguably win this season and I agree. I got out of work when the elimination episode started, but I kept up with it via the DISH Anywhere app on my iPhone. It’s great that I can use this feature to watch American Idol live when I take the bus home from work.
