Candice ended the night belting out "Somewhere" from West Side Story, and her powerful vocals had Keith asking, "How do you that?" and Randy declaring it to be one of the best vocals in "Idol" history.
The true star of the night was Candice. She started off with "Don't Make Me Over," but it was her performance of The Cure's "Lovesong" that brought down the house and left the judges speechless so Mariah just threw some glitter at her.
Candice sang the upbeat "Come Together" to a round of standing ovations from the audience. "Your voice is crazy!" Randy told her, expressing the overall sentiment that Candice may be the true powerhouse of the season.
I think critics say this every year, but I truly believe that a number of these women have the talent to break the four-year streak of young, white, male winners -- we'll have to see whether America agrees.
