Although most competition-show singers who dare to approach Adele (whose version of The Cure song Candice sang), this was different. Candice Glover took the night and possibly the whole season with that one tune. And everyone had to take notice.
Amber Holcomb, who had a pretty incredible night of her own on Wednesday (April 10), wasn’t even jealous of Candice’s success. “We’re two different ladies,” Amber said. “It was her night, so I’m happy for her.”
Kree Harrison and Angie Miller both described how emotional everyone got backstage when they heard Candice’s song. “I just cried,” Kree said. “We were all standing in the back room crying and screaming.” Angie confirmed this, saying “Oh my gosh, it was amazing. She just killed it.”
Angie for one wasn’t at all surprised that Candice did well. “We all knew that this was going to happen,” she said. We were like, ‘Candice, tonight is your night, girl! You are going to kill it.’ And she did.”
