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!
