The moment her name was announced as the winner of the 12th season of American Idol, Candice Glover’s life was forever changed. At very mention of her name, she was immediately pulled in so many different directions. Her life has become so hectic that she has to make time for herself to sit down and rest.
This wasn’t the Idol winner’s first time through the process. Glover had sang “Because You Loved Me” during her audition on Season 9. Judges Randy and Kara loved her, but Simon wasn’t convinced. Even through the Hollywood round, he never came around, but her experience only inspired her to come back and try again.
Season 12 was the first time in the competition where the Final 5 were all women. Candice says that all were equally close, supporting and encouraging each other. Think back to that moment on the stage during the finale waiting for Ryan Seacrest to make the revelation, she says that both Cree and her were encouraging each other and convincing each other that the other would be the winner. She finally got to see pictures of the stunned look on her face.
Candice and the other finalists from Season 12 of American Idol will be performing on the American Idols Live! Tour coming through Dallas on July 27th at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie.
