Tell Me MoreCandice Rickelle Glover (born November 22, 1989) is an American R&B singer who won the twelfth season of American Idol.
Glover was born in Beaufort, South Carolina to John and Carole Glover. She is the oldest of seven children. She graduated from Beaufort High School in 2008. Before Idol Candice was insecure and struggled with her weight. In an interview, she said she had to have counseling at school because of her insecurity issues.
Glover auditioned in Charlotte, North Carolina. She previously auditioned in the ninth and eleventh seasons. In the ninth season Simon Cowell said that he could not see Glover being anything more than a lounge singer and she was cut during the final 70 round. She was eliminated by producers during the ninth season when she forgot the lyrics to her song Chasing Pavements by Adele.
Season 11. Glover auditioned in Savannah, Georgia. She sang Blame It on Me by Chrisette Michele. She advanced but her audition was not aired. In round on, she performed Karinas Slow Motion. In round three she sang Someone like You by Adele, where she received a standing ovation from the judges. She performed It Doesnt Matter Anymore by Buddy Holly with eleventh season finalists DeAndre Brackensick and Jessica Sanchez in the group round and was eliminated.
During her audition for the twelfth season Glover sang Syrup & Honey by Duffy where she received a standing ovation. Judge Randy Jackson said that she was the best performer by far in the competition. Mariah Carey called her singing "The best singing we have heard thus far." Glover advanced to Hollywood. In an interview she said "I thought they were going to get sick of seeing my face."
For the first round in Hollywood she sang Impossible by Christina Aguilera. For the second round she performed Hit Em Up Style with Kamaria Ousley Denise Jackson and Melinda Ademi. This was named the best group the judges had seen all day. In round three, she put a jazzy twist on Alicia Keys Girl on Fire. It was later announced that Glover was one of the top 20 girls of the season and she advanced to Las Vegas.
In Vegas, she performed Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin. In the semifinals of the competition, Glover performed Ordinary People by John Legend. On March 7 2013 she was voted into the Top 10. Her Top 10 performance of I (Who Have Nothing) by Ben E King earned her enough votes to land among the nights top three contestants, along with Kree Harrison and Angie Miller. After her Top 6 performances, Glover earned enough votes to land in the nights top two contestants, along with Kree Harrison. She covered "Lovesong" by The Cure and broke down in tears after receiving a standing ovation. Jackson commented that it was not only one of the best American Idol performances in its history, but very well may be one of the best performances ever on any talent show. For the first time, after her Top 4 performance, she landed in the bottom two.
On May 16, Glover won the contest and her debut single I Am Beautiful was released to music store outlets.
Glover is the first female winner of the show since Jordin Sparks won in 2007, the fourth African American winner in American Idol history and the only winner to have auditioned three times before being cast for the live shows. Her debut album Music Speaks is scheduled for release on February 18, 2014, after being pushed back from October and July 2013.
What is a fanlisting?"A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are), they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans." - TFL.org
