For her second song choice of the night, American Idol 2013 Top 4 finalist sings "Emotion" by Samantha Sang/Destiny's Child.
Nicki Minaj says it was a classic song but she was still grooving to it and wasn’t feeling like it was 50 years ago. She says Candice is a superhero and she is proud of her. Then the whole judges panel gets into a heated discussion about how they weren’t praising Amber before based so much on the song but on how much she has grown, etc. (Because Jimmy Iovine said after the break that the song was cheesy and it was a bad choice.) T
hen they get back to talking about Candice. Randy Jackson praises Candice for her song, but it seems lame after they were just all talking about her rival in front of her. Mariah Carey points out that Candice obviously has a slight cold. Candice says she actually has a terrible cold but she didn’t want to make excuses. She says Candice is NOT a one hit wonder and she’s a super-duper-star. Keith Urban says he was grooving along to the song, but weren’t there any one hit wonders from the last decade? He thinks it was breezy and nice but she missed the chance to have a big moment. We agree.
