The third time proved to be the charm for Candice Glover, as she was named the winner of American Idol season 12.

The R&B powerhouse, who auditioned for the show two seasons before, beat out bluesy country singer Kree Harrison during last night’s (May 16) finale.

Candice clinched the title after a strong showing on Wednesday night’s performance finale. She blew the judges away with all three of her performances, but left them especially awed with her reprise of “I (Who Have Nothing).”

Mariah Carey closed the praise fest with, “What you have is the ability to take any song and turn it into a vehicle for that amazing voice.”
