Angie Miller brought down the house Wednesday on American Idol with a rousing, emotional tribute to Boston – and later told PEOPLE that, believe it or not, she wished she could have been there Monday.

The 19-year-old Idol finalist, who hails from Beverly, Mass., north of Boston, played a stunning piano rendition of "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders – bringing the judges and audience to their feet in what's been a gut-wrenching week following the attacks at the Boston marathon. (Watch her performance below.)

After the show, Miller told PEOPLE about why she picked this particular song from the year she was born and how her loved ones are doing back east.

"I have lots of family, lots of friends, who ran [the marathon] and were there. So, yeah, it wasn't a great day," she said. "It's so weird, but I wish I could have been there. That's weird saying that, but I just wish I could have been there with my friends and family, and just been with them."
