Landing on the bottom two last week, Glover bounces back and reclaims judges' nods as she wows them with her version of Bruno Mars' 'When I Was Your Man' on the May 1 show.

Saved from elimination night on April 25, the four remaining girls were once again competing for the Top 3 spots on "" show Wednesday, May 1. Mentored by three-time Grammy Award-winning , the "Idol" singers performed two songs each, a 2013 hit and a musical standard.

Opening the first round was Angie Miller. Miller covered 's "Diamond", which turned out disappointing. "It was bland, it was lackluster. You can do a lot better," said . The 19-year-old girl made it up in her second performance with "Someone to Watch Over Me". "You sang it so beautifully," commented.

Amber Holcomb took the stage next with 's "Just Give Me a Reason" as her first song. Despite "fantastic" comment from Urban, the three judges thought there was something missing in her performance. The Texas girl later gave her all with her cover of "My Funny Valentine" and got a standing ovation from all judges. "That last half of that song was absolutely unbelievable," raved.

Coming in as the third contestant was Candice Glover. Sitting in the bottom two last week, Glover proved her amazing vocal talents to the judges with a cover of ' "When I Was Your Man". "Today you gave me every single thing that I was talking about last week," Minaj said and asked fellow judges to give her a standing ovation. 's "You've Changed" was later perfectly delivered by her. "Your voice is spectacular," said.

Last performer Kree Harrison first sang 's "See You Again". All judges sang praises for her connection to the song as well as her great vocal. Despite doing "a good job," the judges thought choosing "Stormy Weather" as the second song was a quite daring move for her. "I wish you guys would've paid more attention to the song choice," Minaj said.

The girls concluded the night with a group performance of 's "Wings".
