Although her audition and most of her Hollywood performances did not air, Simon Cowell hailed her as the best female singer on the season and said she had a lot of potential. However for Miles, it seemed song choice would always get in her way. During top 16 week, she chose the song "Smile" by Nat King Cole and received a lukewarm response from the audience and critiques from the judges, with all agreeing that it wasn't the right song and Simon even saying that it may be the end for her. Despite the odds she managed to make it into the top 12. For Rolling Stones week she chose Missing You and the judges were rather impressed with her performance, but still felt she hadn't chosen the right song. For Billboard's #1 week, she chose "Against All Odds" by Phil Collins (although she took on the Mariah Carey version of the song). The judges and online critics thought the vocals and performance were abysmal, with Kara even claiming it was the worst vocal of the season and Simon saying that she had no chance of staying another week. Her performance of the song is largely considered to be one of the worst performances in Idol history, and the following night, she was eliminated. Although the save was still in play, Simon immediately claimed that they wouldn't use it on her no matter how her performance went.
