'American Idol': Candice Glover's 'Lovesong' Performance Interrupted By Strange Voice

During the April 10 episode of "American Idol," a voice -- or some kind of noise -- interrupted Candice Glover's performance of "Lovesong."

The voice, which many are calling "demonic" and "creepy" on Twitter, came on the microphone during Glover's second performance of the night. Longtime judge Randy Jackson said Glover's performance was one of the best in "American Idol" history, and Mariah Carey left the panel and showered Glover with glitter and the contestant wept tears of joy as the night came to a close.

But what was that voice? Request for comment from Fox wasn't immediately returned, but there are some theories going around.

TVLine's "Idol" recapper Michael Slezak said
, "About a third of the way through the song, I’m pretty sure the Holy Ghost hopped by the studio and whispered some kind of unintelligible utterance into the Idol mics — or maybe it was just a boom mic getting dropped? — that, when played backwards, spells 'Vote Candice, you idiots!'"

EW's "American Idol" recapper Annie Barrett said it was the only minor tragedy in Glover's performance. "[T]hat wretched audio f---up near the beginning of the song that sounded like one of the red light-rosettes at Candice's feet had turned into a skull and started screaming. Of course, this wasn't her fault, but it will corrupt the song on my sure-to-be-endless YouTube viewings, so I'm pissed," she said.

Glover has her own theory.

As for weird noise, I think something happened to the sound when they came from commercial break. I didn't hear it until I watched later :/

Watch the show-stopping performance again below. The strange voice/noise happens at about 1:10 in. Is it a voice? Does it say "LOVE YOU"? Is it just a noise as Glover suggests? Share your theories in the comments.
