Asked if she was happy for Candice, Kree told HollywoodLife.com, “Well yeah!”
Then, when asked how she really felt about losing, she said, “You know what, we’re both standing there and the beauty of Candice and I is that we are both totally different artists. We are both so driven for each other’s careers and I just felt like it was the beginning. This is not the end of the road for any of us. I’m so proud of her and I am proud of myself for getting this far and I couldn’t believe I was standing there with her at the finale.”
It’s nice that Kree has such a positive attitude and it’s clear she’s proud of Candice.
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. Kree was clearly proud of her friend as she hugged her and had a huge smile on her face, following the announcement.
Candice sobbed her way through her new single “I Am Beautiful,” as the rest of the Top 10 crowded around her on stage, congratulating her on winning the title.
