Candice Glover Wins American Idol
It was a great moment for Candice Glover as she was crowed the new American Idol, but the season finale still had plenty of drama. INSIDE EDITION explains.
Candice Glover is the new American Idol. She beat out country singer Kree Harrison.
While it was Glover’s night, lots of people are talking about this moment when judge Mariah Carey belted out a medley of her greatest hits. Even though she has one of the greatest voices in music, many say she was obviously lip-synching, and it's causing a social media uproar.
"Mariah Carey lip syncing on AI....kind of ironic since she critiques live performances when she can't even do it herself,” said one tweet.
14.3 million tuned in for the finale. The lowest rated season finale ever. The headline in the New York Times said, "'Idol' Loses its Spark."
That didn't dampen Glover’s excitement. She even got to perform a duet with Jennifer Hudson.
The night belonged to Candice Glover. The new American Idol.
