Candice Glover’s American Idol star is on the rise big time! Last week, Candice gave an incredible rendition of “Lovesong” by The Cure that judge Randy Jackson called one of the best performances in the show’s history. Candice love is at an all time high and we’re wondering — can she ride it all the way to the American Idol Season 12 finale?

 

We’ve always been a big fan of Candice Glover, but she’s always kind of hovered around our number three spot among the ladies after Kree Harrison and Angie Miller. After last week, however, the idea of this soulful powerhouse as the next American Idol winner is starting to grow on us.

 

Seriously, how many American Idol finalists ever receive a triple standing ovation for a song? (One from the audience and TWO from the judges?) That has to be a record right there. But can Candice actually top her performance from last week or will that turn out to be the best she can give? Peaking too early could be a huge obstacle to her reaching the American Idol finale this season.

 

Watch Candice’s American Idol 2013 performances from Top 5 week and share your thoughts on whether she will make it all the way to the end!
