The two lovely ladies competing in this week’s American Idol Season 12 finale are…
Candice Glover and Kree Harrison!
R&B/Jazz song stylist Candice Glover and pure-voiced Country/Blues powerhouse Kree Harrison will be singing for the Idol crown in the first Female vs. Female finale since Season 3! Since the beginning of the competition, Candice and Kree have been my two favourite contestants. I admire them for their risk-taking artistic choices and versatility (Candice), musical knowledge and authenticity (Kree), and consistently heartfelt, soulful, and AMAZING performances (Candice AND Kree) throughout the weeks. I am beyond thrilled that they are now the last two women standing in a very Girl Power driven season! All of my years of wishing for a female winner has resulted in the Top 2 showdown of my dreams! I will be happy to see either girl take the title – it’s a win-win situation!
I could wax poetry all day about why I love these talented and deserving ladies, but I will let them do the talking:
“Kree is the sweetest person I have ever met. She’s there for everybody. She puts the world before herself. She doesn’t think of this as a competition. … I’ve never heard anybody sing like Kree before in my life. Kree is country and soul. And it’s not every day you hear those two things combined.” – Candice Glover
“Candice is one of the best vocalists that’s ever been on any show, much less American Idol. She’s way beyond just a singer, she’s an artist. I respect her and she inspires me every day. She’s an amazing person.” – Kree Harrison
Which woman will emerge victorious over the five year domination of male winners by becoming the next Idol Queen?
