It's that time again. By Friday morning, American Idolwill have a new winner. Who will wear the Season 12 crown, Candice Glover or Kree Harrison? Read our breakdown of the two finalists, check out two of their standout performances and Top 2 diaries below, and tell us who you're casting your vote for!
In her third go-round on Idol (she also auditioned on Seasons 9 and 11),Candice has been the front-runner, vocally speaking, all season. The 23-year-old from St. Helena Island, S.C., is truly in a class of her own among this year's Top 10 when it comes to singing. Though she's been plagued by "church girl" dismissals courtesy of Randy Jackson in recent weeks, she proved that there's also a place for her on Top 40 radio with her rendition of Emeli Sande's "Next To Me" last week. Watch her performance of "Lovesong," which Jackson called "one of the best performances in American Idol history," here:
