No doubt about it. Candice Glover is definitely America’s newest overnight sensation. Her stunning performance during American Idol last week brought the house down, and this is an understatement. Her magnificent performance even had judges, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, agreeing with each other. And this is a tall order.
Even as amazing as she was last week, there was one concern. The following evening, April 11, Inside Edition referred to Candice’s performance as “the greatest American Idol performance ever? . .”. Randy Jackson called it “One of the greatest performances in history of American Idol. ” Immediately, questions were raised. Would she be able to live up the the expectations that the media had suddenly placed on her? Can she handle the pressure?
Well, tonight, she answered these questions. If there was a way for this magnificent performer to surpass herself, she found it. This girl has it all. She has the talent, the beauty, and the attitude that will carry her a long way. She is as cool as the center seed of a cucumber. Of course, things can change in the next three weeks, but I wouldn’t count on that.
My friends, when you watch Candice Glover perform, I believe that you are watching the next American Idol.
