Candice Glover Talks About Winning ‘American Idol’
After Candice’s amazing winning moment, she told HollywoodLife.com how it felt to win American Idol after trying out three times:
“I’m still trying to process it. I don’t even know my name! Oh my gosh! I don’t know what’s happening! It feels amazing though to finally have gotten to this point after working so hard for so long.”
Candice is so cute! She is proof that determination and hard work are the key to success, and that is why she kept auditioning.
“Well I actually have some friends that decided not to come back and stuff like that but I always knew for some reason that it would happen if I kept going. I even said at some point said you know, American Idol obviously doesn’t want me why would I go back? But I found myself on the website looking at the auditions again. Just being determined. I just couldn’t turn away because I knew that if I kept trying that it would happen.”
While waiting for the announcement Candice kept saying Kree’s name, and she admitted that she was so sure that Ryan Seacrest was going announce her as the winner.
“I was saying her name because I was just certain he was going to say the name so I was like “oh yeah, Kree, Kree, Kree” and she was like “no. Candice, Candice, Candace.” We are super supportive of each other and I know no matter what I’m going to be buying Kree’s album. I think the whole world will.”
Upon being crowned the winner, Candice said, “three years” as she tried to hold back tears, referencing how she tried out for season 9 and 11 before winning the current season.
Under confetti and a rain shower of sparklers, Candice sobbed her way through her new single “I Am Beautiful,” and it was amazing! Candice totally deserved to win.
