Candice Glover Crowned 2013 American Idol

Published: Thursday 16th May 2013 by Rashad

It’s certainly been a long road for Candice Glover.  Narrowed down from thousands of contestants, the powerhouse performer saw that journey end and her quest for divadom begin as she bested 22-year-old Texan songstress Kree Harrison to be named 2013′s ‘American Idol’ champ.

A fan favorite from the very start, Candice consistently wowed fans with her takes on tunes ‘Chasing Pavements’, ‘I Who Have Nothing’, and many more.

As we look forward to music from both of the blossoming vocalists, we at That Grape Juice extend our congratulations to Glover for being crowned this year’s winner!

      AGREE! i hadn’t watched in YEARS I just happen to catch some youtube vids of Josh Ledett from last yr and said there’s NO way he should have been sent home. I’ve been watching season 12 since DAY 1. When I first saw Candice audition this year I fell in love from the start. I’ve been voting for her EVERY week. Striving to vote higher than the week before but LAST NIGHT I went IN. I voted for her about 690 times on one of her #’s then apprx 20 times on another # THEN used my Facebook acct to vote my 50 votes, had my niece use hers and a couple of my other friends so all in all we must have voted like over 1000 times. Feels good to know the RIGHT person won. Kree’s a sweet girl and talented she’ll be fine. Cant wait to hear Candice’s direction. Love you Candy~

  10. Beyonce is life May 16, 2013

    Thank God Kree didn’t win

    • Beyonce IS S*** May 16, 2013

      I know right 🙂

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! May 17, 2013

      Kree is a star as is Angie.

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! May 17, 2013

      Well done to her. She did have the most powerful voice, no one can deny that.
      I do love kree though, now its time for both to get out in the real world and we’ll see how they do.

      Last years winner Phillp Phillps debut song home, has sold 4 million in the states.. wonder if Candices song will top that.

  11. BEYSUS OVER JESUS May 16, 2013

    • Jayla May 16, 2013

    • TheHive May 17, 2013

      CHIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLEEEEEEEEE!!! Ciara not even in the category of successful!

  13. Tuan Zubaidah Tuan Muda May 16, 2013

    From the beginning I knew Candice will be crowned as the American Idol 2013.

    She is consistent and a strong vocalist. I love most of her performances especially in Somewhere, Love Song, I Who Have Nothing, Believe and many more.

    The voters are right. Congrats Candice and all the best in your future undertakings..

  14. Rihanna killed beyho’s career May 16, 2013

    Kree was so damn forgettable so it was expected. Candice gives memorable performances and was a the best singer in the competition. Good job America.

  15. King B>Rihanna May 16, 2013

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    Congrats to her.

    Truth be told though, the reality show format has stopped producing stars. And if I’m being frank, there are tons of other chicks that can blow already out there on the grind. The market is already crazy saturated.

    Big ups to my girl Jaden Michaels who wrote Candice’s first single! I love that chick. You can find her on YouTube doing beyonce best thing I never had and her own version of drakes Marvin’s room. Brilliant artist signed to Sony and working with mark ronson on her debut album!

  17. The real xozo May 17, 2013

    Well done however she won’t have longevity – people like her because she is nice and non-threatening, which is fine if you want to win a reality show like this but in the music world nobody is here for it.
