TOP FIVE BEST IDOL PERFORMANCES OF CANDICE GLOVER

And Finally, a Female Idol Winner was hailed after five consecutive years of waiting. The conspiracy of white guy with guitar is finally over and the curse of Kristy Lee Cook is already broken. Now, American Idol crowned the fifth female winner, the first female after Jordin Sparks way back 2007 (when American Idol is still embracing the highest rating ever [check the Top Five Reasons Why American Idol is Losing the Ratings]). She is also the fourth Black idol winner in history (including Ruben Studdard (Season 2), Fantasia Barrino (Season 3) and Jordin (season 6). She is also the  first idol winner who auditioned for the show three times (S9, S11 and S12). Candice Glover, as we all know managed to deliver flawless performances in almost every round (an achievement that only few idols can make notably including Melinda Doolittle of Season 3, David Archuleta of Season 7 and Adam Lambert of Season 8. Candice performed a lot of notable performances in the season and in fact, of you are going to list down the top 10 performances made in American Idol Season 12, most of the entries will probably belong to her ( though i must give credit to others icluding Angie Miller's You Set Me Free performance. To make this entry short, here are five of the best American Idol performances by Candice Glover [also check Top Five Greatest American Idol Season 11 Performances] and [Top Five Greatest Idol Performances of All Time]

TOP 5 BEST IDOL PERFORMANCE OF CANDICE GLOVER
"STRAIGHT UP"

 I know that there's a lot from Candice's performances that is way far better than this song but the fact that she managed to transformed a mid tempo dance song into a very powerful rendition is truly impressive. If you're going to compare this performance from the originl Paula Abdul hit, you will realized how Candice made a drastic improvement. She managed to retain the beat but made it more current and despite of being an upbeat song, Candice managed to showcase her impressive vocal ability. Simply impressive.


TOP 4 BEST IDOL PERFORMANCE OF CANDICE GLOVER
"YOU'VE CHANGED"
This song is purely emotional and Candice nailed it and gave this classic Billie Holiday song the justice it deserves. The song was delivered fluidly and i am not surprised why she received a standing ovation from the judges. It was a stellar performance indeed just like what the judges said and i couldn't agree more. 

TOP 3 BEST IDOL PERFORMANCE OF CANDICE GLOVER
"WHEN YOU BELIEVE"
The last idol contestant that i remember who performed this song remarkably was David Archuleta of Season 7 until Candice made another stunning rendition and what makes it more special is the fact that she sang it in front of Mariah Carey who collaborated with the late Whitney to make this song possible. At this point, Candice proved herself that she can do and perform almost anything. She is a certified diva and she really deserved to win. 

TOP 2 BEST IDOL PERFORMANCE OF CANDICE GLOVER
"I (WHO HAVE NOTHING)"
I (Who Have Nothing) was notably performed by Jordin Sparks and Haley Reinhart. Both of them delivered it satisfyingly and in fact, Jordin Spark's rendition remained as one of the most remarkable performances in Idol history but it seems like it is hanging now by a thread because Candice Glover performed it way far better than any of them. It was haunting and something that will give you goosebumps. She performed it twice and she made it even better in the finale where she sang the first part of the song in a capella. 

THE BEST IDOL PERFORMANCE OF CANDICE GLOVER
"LOVESONG"

If I (Who Have Nothing) will give you goosebumps, Lovesong will make you jump out of your chair simply because it's incedibly amazing. If Fantasia Barrino has Summertime, Carrie Underwood has Alone , Blake Lewis has You Give Love a Bad Name and Jessica Sanchez had her I'm Telling You I'm not Going last year, Candice make this song as her own and it's probably one of the greatest perfomance in American Idol History. She didn't just received a standing ovation from the judges but Mariah even walked on to stage to throw her some glitters. It was indeed a spectacular performance that will be remembered for the rest of Idol history.
