Candice Glover is the new American Idol. She beat out country singer Kree Harrison.
"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.
