    Nicki Manaj was the only judge that didn’t perform on stage. She can judge others harshly, but didn’t have the guts to get up there and sing herself.

  • vprice1057

    Well America got it right! Candice Glover – Woo Hoo – Granted this season was one of the best. Very strong contestants, but Candice is amazing and deserved this win.

    @notebooks: I was waiting to hear from her myself but I kind of think maybe it wasn’t her. Maybe it was the show ???

    Idol is a joke but she will not become anything. Jennifer Hudson who blew her off the stage, when it comes to her singing career hasn’t had the huge success she should have. Candice is Melanie Amaro part2. Who’s Melanie Amaro you ask…..EXACTLY.

    Jennifer Hudson screamed throughout the song. Candice outsung her easily. No, at the beginning of the season, all the judges were asked if they wanted to perform this season and Nicki wasn’t interested.

    @vprice1057: This season was made the worst Idol season in history by Minaj’s attendance.

  • Mia

    Congratulations Candice <3

  • Shelly

    She can sing!! Great job! She seems humble too. I liked kree as well but happy Candice won….

  • Tada Charles

    DREAMERS!!! LET’S ALL SUPPORT ANGIE and make her song “You Set Me Free” #1 in iTunes!!!

    No one really cares about this show anymore not like the early seasons They definitively need to revamp the whole show

    I thought the show was great this year. I actually enjoyed all of the judges. I’m very sad Randy is leaving the show. I just hope hope hope that Keith Urban does not leave the show. He is so fine to watch and he really gets into it. I also thought Nicki Minaj was an interesting judge. At least she called it like she saw it. I will always watch American Idol as long as Ryan Seacrest is the host. He is awesome and professional. We can’t expect ratings to be the same as they were 10 years ago. We have many talent shows on TV now and I feel American Idol is still the best singing talent show. Sorry Blake Shelton,,,,,,,,I really like you and think you are fine to look at, however, I give the edge to American Idol.

    Candice certainly deserved to win.
    She has an amazing voice.
    The duet with Hudson was incredible!!
    American Idol always has the most impressive Finales.
    Amber is also going to be a star for sure.
    Candice will have a great career if she sticks with R&B, where she shines.

    Worst year ever . Randy getting smart move. Shows over, When you finish last and get another chance by not sending you home then winning amazing.

  • Stephen

    You couldn’t lose in this finale, either would have been a worthy winner. They both were amazing and lets not forget Angie who was also awesome.

    I also thought Candice sang better than Jennifer. It was like Jennifer was trying to show her up. Sounded like screaming to me. Candices’ voice is like butter.

    I think AI is still in the lead, but the voice has better singers overall. They have some country girls over there that simply blow my mind. That 16 year old is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard.

  • D.Scott

    I didn’t catch any of the episodes but I have to check her out.

    @Justine: @Justine: YOU MUST NOT HAVE ANY FRIENDS? my advice is try being nice and smile once in a while.

  • Aram Mestre

    Candic is the best, her voice is AMAZING!

  • betty fowler

    I think Angie will have the best career. Not only could she sing all of them under the table,she is so beautiful. She plays the piano beautifully too. NOt one of them has that talent. I look for her to release her first album and be another Carrie Underwood.

  • mickey

    @notebooks: so what? shes already rich and famous, she’s not the one trying to win the competition.

  • Alisa

    Candice is fantastic. I thought Jennifer H was BRILLIANT, but Candice even better. Pure velvet in her voice, each note gorgeously on point and saturated with feeling. She has my favourite voice I’ve heard in at east 20 years. #CanGlo
