Could it be we already know who won American Idol 2013? Did Candice Glover win American Idol last night with her pimp spot final performance? After watching her insanely amazing final song, we couldn't help but wonder if the crown has already been handed out a week early.
On last night’s American Idol performance show, Candice Glover took over for Angie Miller in her attempt to snatch some wigs, as the always colorful Nicki Minaj might say. The South Carolina native had already been killing it for weeks, but she came out like a woman possessed last night.
While the American Idol Top 3 have jockeyed for the lead position all season long, with each of them taking it at one point or another, we’d have to say Candice pretty much sealed the deal for the win last night.
The folks at American Idol likely had a feeling about her doing so, as they gave her the almighty final performance spot (aka the pimp spot). Leaving the Idol viewers with that stirring rendition of “Somewhere” had to have felt pretty amazing for Candice, not that any of us would ever forget that performance anyway!
As Jimmy Iovine said, Candice not only won that round, but she won the night. We think she solidified the fact that she’ll be the last girl standing, with glitter falling in her hair and the inevitable “ugly cry”. Hey, that’s what Candice calls it!
We’ve predicted that the finale will be Angie Miller and Candice Glover, which will undoubtedly be a fight to the finish. Angie will likely stick by her trusty piano, as she knows she shines the brightest there. If she’s smart, she’ll perform her original song again, since that's when we all fell in love with her back in Hollywood Week.
The fun thing about Idol is nothing is ever set in stone, but we definitely think Candice has the upper hand.
What do you think? Do you think we already know who won American Idol Season 12 based on what happened last night?
