The American Idol 2013 Winner: Candice Glover or Kree Harrison?

The biggest TV question of the day is won American Idol 2013? We’ve gotta be honest. We thought Candice Glover was going to blow Kree Harrison away on American Idol last night, but that’s not exactly what went down.

First of all, we agree with Randy Jackson that Simon Fuller’s song choices were abysmal, so the first round was pretty much a toss-up. Actually, we thought Kree did a bit better with “Angel” than Candice on “Chasing Pavements.” As we anticipated, both girls blew us away with their original songs in the second round. Keith Urban called both songs “tailor made” for these girls, and we couldn’t agree more, although we actually thought Kree’s was more on par with the artist we could see her being.

And then it came to round three and Candice shot herself out of a cannon, taking the night by leaving everyone with that beautifully haunting rendition of “I Who Have Nothing.” We’d have to say that based on that last performance and her other performances all season long, we think Candice won American Idol Season 12.

It could be a very close one though, folks. Fan polls, Facebook surveys and American Idol bloggers are all putting this race at a dead heat between Candice Glover and Kree Harrison. Tune in with us right here for our live recap of the exciting two-hour finale (8 p.m.-10:07 on FOX) to find out who will be the last girl standing!

Who do you think will be the next American Idol winner?
