If you didn’t know, American Idol finalist Candice Glover is on fire and slaying the competition with her powerhouse vocals. Glover, 23, is well on her way to take the coveted Idol crown and become the first female contestant to do so since Jordin Sparks won in 2007.
After already earning what Randy Jackson called “the best vocal performance in Idol history,” with her rendition of “Love Song” – which was popularized most recently by Adele – Candice blew the entire competition out of the park with her performance of West Side Story’s “Somewhere.”
