With only 6 finalists remaining, the American Idol singing competition is inching closer to the moment of crowning its new winner.
South Carolina’s very own, Candice Glover has proven to be a strong contestant since the beginning of this 12th season. The 23 year-old singer stole the spotlight and performed a jazzy rendition of The Cure’s 1989 hit, “Love Song.”
After her performance, the crowd gave her a standing ovation for a solid minute and Mariah Carey gracefully walked up to Candice on stage and anointed her with a hand full of glitter on her (see 2:00 mark).
Interesting fact: Candice Glover is actually a long-lost cousin of Angel Laws, the founder/editor of Concrete Loop! It’s only natural that we root for her this season. We hope she takes the title home!
