The two lady performers first wowed the crowd before the show said goodbye to finalist Angie Miller.

With the grand finale just a week away, "" brought in R'n'B diva to add star power to the May 9 live results show. The Grammy Award-winning artist performed the single "Tears Always Win", a track from her scorching hot album "".

But before her live rendition of the mid-tempo composition from behind the grand piano, season ten runner-up first warmed up the stage with her brand new single "Barefoot and Buckwild" from her upcoming sophomore album. "So great to be back at Idol! I am getting ready for my performance tonight. Excited! #barefootandbuckwild," the 18-year-old country singer tweeted just before going onstage.

Alaina felt right at home on the "Idol" stage where she fought head-to-head and ultimately lost out to eventual champion . Ironically for a superstar and musician of her caliber, Keys was admittedly more anxious going into her performance. "Looking at the audience is giving me butterflyz!!! Feels like I'm trying out for the show too!!!" she modestly tweeted.

When both performances were delivered and contest judge was done premiering the music video for her new single "#Beautiful" with R'n'B crooner , host finally read the results, with Angie Miller getting the least number of votes, putting and Kree Harrison through to the grand finale. The two will face off next week to determine the season twelve winner, with the final results show the day after promising to be another star-studded musical event.
