ROUND 1: Simon Fuller's choice

Kree - Angel

Candice - Chasing Pavements

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/3-aAwKQ2CMQ" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/3-aAwKQ2CMQ</a>

I thought the song choices were both pretty sleepy. After hearing Sarah Simmons (from The Voice) singing Angel, I thought Kree's version was really underwhelming. I liked Candice's lower register but I felt like she was just wanting to belt out a part of the song, and that never really happened.

ROUND 2: Winner's single

Kree - All Cried Out

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-05lLFxgLiE" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/-05lLFxgLiE</a>

Candice - I Am Beautiful

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/bf18VXI3s5c" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/bf18VXI3s5c</a>

Kree's winner single is absolutely stunning. The song is clearly filled with emotion, and I loved the build-up in the song. I thought the middle half onwards was better than the first half though. I feel like this is a great representation of the type of music that she'd make. I really love the chorus.

I like Candice's song. Not as emotional, I guess, but her singing is incredible. I can picture her winning and singing this song with the confetti coming down at the chorus... Maybe I'm just being hopeful. :lol:

ROUND 3: Favourite performance

Kree - Up To The Mountain

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/beUD20VZ8Fg" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/beUD20VZ8Fg</a>

Candice - I (Who Have Nothing)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/yMet8T87JU8" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/yMet8T87JU8</a>

I thought Kree's choice was interesting. I don't remember her singing it. I thought it was pretty good, but I felt like it was missing something. Not really sure what, but maybe comparing it to Candice, it's definitely missing something, lol.

Loved Candice's choice. I remember not really noticing Candice until she sang this song, and it was stunning. I thought it was just as amazing, if not better, this time. And she was able to belt!

A standing ovation from the judges for both Kree and Candice with their last songs. I believe Candice won AI with her last song, "I (Who Have Nothing)." It was simply beautiful, especially the opening singing it A cappella. Mesmerizing! She peaked at the exact moment she needed to do so.

I really had no favorite after Angie left last week. Kree sang her best but she didn't have the star performance like Candice. All three will have careers so I'm not upset.

Candice totally outshone Kree with her voice. And it looks like Candice is going to win. Which I find is a pity. Don't get me wrong, Candice can REALLY SING but if we're talking about the Idol factor... She probably won't be as marketable as Kree. Ah, it's a strange season for me...

Kree is winning American Idol.

Round 1: Kree
Round 2: Tie
Round 3: Candice

This will be another instance of Adam VS Kris. The more the judges want to push something down our throats, people will not budge.

Logically, Candice will win. But if even Angie can be voted off, you really never know.

My biased heart wants Kree to win. :lol3:

CONGRATS TO CANDICE! :wohoo: So glad she won, especially after last night!

The finale was way too long. Too much filler. I think the best moment of the finale was Angie performing with Adam Lambert and Jessie J. The performance was amazing. :hrt:

The finale was boring this year.  I fast forward through most of it.  Candice is a beautiful woman with an incredible voice.  I am so happy she won even though I thought Angie was going to win this season.  Idol needs a complete makeover to move forward.  If not, cancel the show.  I truly believe the judges did not pick the best of the best.  So please give us better judges and better categories to sing.  :hearts:

^ I agree. While I was happy that the undeserving people were voted out and we had an all-girl final 5, when I think back, I think only 3 of the 10 contestants were strong enough to be in the finals? Candice, Kree and Angie. Amber was good too as well but the rest... It just wasn't the finals standard.

I agree with you Ruth, when they had the final 10 come on stage, I realized that they were gone for good reason. They just weren't that good compared to the final four. I haven't missed a single one of them.   :)

Congratulations, Candice! You deserved it! :wohoo:

This is actually the first time that the person I rooted for since the beginning won American Idol... :conf: :conf: :conf:

Anyway, this finale has the lowest rating in the history of American Idol, based on this: http://www.wetpaint.com/american-idol/articles/2013-05-16-ratings-hit-low-finale-performances :ascared

Congrats Candice! My girlfriend wanted Angie to win, and later Kree, for reason you all gave. I personally wanted either Janelle or Candice to win, the former for her personality and the latter for the pure talent. Thus, I was satisfied, while my girl wasn't.  :lol3:

She deserves it so so so so much <3333 I remember last season I was aggravated she didn't go through at Las Vegas Rounds, considering she was in the most awesome group there and I was rooting for her ever since I heard her sing then, only for her to be cut!

But now it's kinda a blessing in disguise she didn't get through <333
