Last week on Season 12 of American Idol the judges narrowed down the contestants to the Top 20 guys and girls.
Tonight the top 10 ladies took the stage, but this time America will vote for their favorites to create the final top 10 contestants (5 girls and 5 boys).
Well, unless of course there will be wildcard picks?! Fingers Crossed!
Tonight there were some great performances by the ladies. Amber Holcomb gave a stellar performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Believe In You And Me,” while Angie Miller played the piano while singing a heart-warming rendition of Colton Dixon’s “Never Gone.”
However, the best performance of the night has to go to Candice Glover performing John Legend’s “Ordinary People.”
What made Glover’s performance so incredible was that she took a classic John Legend song and made it her own by adding jazzy inflections. Her vocal ability is absolutely breathe-taking. She is definitely the one to beat or as Randy would say she is definitely “in it to win it.”
Glover received a standing ovation by all of the judges, except Nicki Minaj.
Keith Urban commended Glover for having an “old soul thing going on, yet still makes it so current.”
He described her performance as simply “superb.”
Randy emphasized how he believed she is one of the best singers in the whole competition.
Mariah proclaimed:”Thank you for that performance and for sharing your gift with us. You gave me goose bumps.”
