For her first song of the American Idol Top 5 performance night, Candice Glover chose to sing Paula Abdule's "Straight Up."
Keith Urban says “Baby that was so good!” He says Candice just feels the song and her effortless runs are like “someone winking across a bar”. He thinks she has really set the standard high for the other girls. Nicki Minaj congratulates Candice for making it to the Top 5 after having tried out last year and not making it to the finals. She says Candice showed she’s the boss and, btw, that song has always been great Keith! Randy Jackson says he loves the arrangement and what Candice did with the song. “Can’t nothing go wrong for you right now,” he says. Randy also gives a shout out to former American Idol judge Paula Abdul. Mariah Carey applauded the selection, saying, “Smart, as always, song choice, genius!”
