Candice: "I'm mostly looking forward to seeing firsthand what the support has been like at home, because I hear about it all the time. It would mean the world to make the Top 3, because that means everything I've worked for is finally falling into place."

Kree: "What I'm looking forward to most is being able to celebrate with my friends and family in my hometown and being able to hug each of them to thank them for supporting me."

Angie: "Making the Top 3 means everything to me! I can't wait to meet everyone who has supported me and got me this far in the competition."
