For the last five seasons of ‘American Idol,’ the winner has been a white guy with a guitar and the producers want a shake up! This year, HollywoodLife.com is exclusively told that producers are doing everything they can to have Candice and Amber as the final two contestants.
After Candice Glover blew away the competition on the April 10 episode of American Idol, the producers of the hit FOX show have decided that they want her and Amber Holcolm in the finale! HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that after five male winners in a row, the producers are doing “everything in their power” to get Candice and Amber as the final two. Read on for all the details!
‘American Idol’ Finale — Will Amber Holcomb & Candice Glover Be The Final Two?
On the April 11 elimination show, Lazaro Arbos was finally eliminated, making Idol history because the final five contestants are all girls — that’s NEVER happened before! And apparently, the producers couldn’t be more thrilled!
“The producers are doing everything in their power to get a finale that consists of Amber and Candice; they want to change the Idol mold that has consisted of a white guy winning, so nothing would be better in their eyes then to have two African American women in the finale,” a source reveals EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com.
How interesting! To be fair, no African American woman, any woman for that matter, has won the show since Jordan Sparks in 2007, so it would be great to see either Candice or Amber win!
‘American Idol': Why Candice & Amber Sang Together In Results Show
Our source also reveals that there was a reason why Candice and Amber were paired together on the April 11 results show, during the group number.
“There was a reason they put Candice and Amber together on the show Thursday, because they want to show America that these are the two they want in the finale.”
Since a number of the guys, who have won in the past five years, are failing to set the Billboard charts alight, it would be great to see a girl win Idol and shake things up!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you like to see Candice or Amber win?
