East Tennessee singer "Hangin' On" American Idol

KNOXVILLE — Our girl from tiny Oliver Springs, Janelle Arthur, got beat up a bit by one of the divas on American Idol on Wednesday night, but she wowed another with her rendition of "You Keep Me Hangin' On."

Nicki Minaj's snipes about Arthur, whom she calls her "Little Marshmallow," visibly upset the East Tennessee singer. Of a duet with Kree Harrison, Minaj said, "Kreedom (Kree Harrison) almost made it look like she flew in to do a duet with an Idol contestant today."

However, after her "You Keep Me Hangin' On" performance, Mariah Carey said: "Janelle at her finest! "Anything that anybody said earlier, she just proved them wrong."
