Next week, on Wednesday, April 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 6 – Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller – return to perform for America’s votes. Each finalist will perform two songs, including the music of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and “A Song I Wish I Had Written.”
