Candice Glover first showed up on the American Idol radar when she made it to Hollywood Week during Season 11.
Luckily, she was able to repeat her success from last year and won the judges over with her rendition of Duffy’s “Syrup and Honey.”
So how far will Candice make it on American Idol 2013? She was among the lucky singers moving past Hollywood Week. Then she secured her spot in Las Vegas with an amazing performance of Alicia Keys's "Girl On Fire."
While in Vegas, Candice wowed the judges again with her take on Aretha Franklin's "Natural Woman" and successfully moved on to the Top 20. Next up, she floored the audience and the judges (again) in the semi-finals round. Her inclusion in the Top 10 for Season 12 was pretty much a given.
Over the course of the competition, she won over the fans and judges with her powerful vocals and passionate performances. On May 16, Candice Glover was crowned the winner of American Idol 2013. Congratulations, girl!
