I was so thrilled to see my two favorite contestants in tonight's Idol finale. Kree Harrison and Candice Glover performed 3 songs each: A song picked by the show's creator, Simon Fuller, an original song which if they win will be their first single recording and finally their pick for their favorite song that they performed earlier in the compeition.
To be honest, I think Kree and Candice are the best two singers of the season and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the best go up against the other best in tonight's finale show.
And here's how tonight's performances went:
Candice Glover sings Adele's Chasing Pavements; her coronation song, I Am Beautiful; and her favorite song performed in the season, Ben E. King's, I (Who Have Nothing). I enjoyed all three performances especially her coronation song. Now, I loved her first performance of Ben E. King's song and was pleasantly surprised when she changed it up and made it just as good the second time around. She is so talented.
Kree Harrison sings Sarah McLachlan's Angel; her coronation song, All Cried Out; and her favorite song performed in the season, Patty Griffin's Up to the Mountain. I also enjoyed all three of Kree's performances. I loved the song that she selected as her favorite performance of the season. She is also very talented.
As far as I'm concerned both Kree and Candice are the top two Idols of the season and I think they will have very successful music careers.
But as you all know, there can only be one Idol and based on tonight's performances, I have to cast all 50 of my American Idol App votes to:
