Candice Glover from American Idol KILLED IT two nights ago! For me, this was the best performance of the season and one of the best in the entire history of Idol. First off, Miss Thang did more than justice to “When You Believe” all while in front of the legendary and humble Mariah Carey. Whitney Houston would have been proud. Though Candice has the best vocal acrobatics, this performance wasn’t about that. It was merely emotional and believable. AMAZING! Also, I agree 100% with Nicki Minaj. There has never been another collaboration-duet like Mariah and Whitney. Those two were on a different level and no one has been able to match their caliber. I repeat, NO ONE. I’m glad Candice did this song so people don’t forget about the DIVAS who paved the way.
