Among those two was her version of “Lovesong” by The Cure. Randy called it the best performance in 12 seasons. While I’m not sure about that, it’s definitely not a stretch. I know it’s one of my favorite performances in a very long time. So I’ll go with it.
It was soulful, emotional, haunting (and I’m not talking about that creepy feedback “love you” or whatever that weird sound was that shows up a minute or so in). I thought her first performance was the best ever, then she gave us this. Candice definitely jumped ahead of Angie and even Kree this week with this performance.
Have a listen to the performance below and let us know what you think.
Does Candice have what it takes to become the next American Idol?
Update: Here is Candice’s second performance from last night, “Don’t Make Me Over.”
