Candice Glover earned the only standing ovation on Wednesday’s “American Idol.” Closing out the Top 3 performances, the contestant blew away the judges with her powerful, moving take on “Somewhere.”

“Oh my goodness. What was that?! What happened?! How do you do that?!” exclaimed Keith Urban. He then added, “If you want to vote for Candice call the number on your screen. If you don’t want to vote for Candice, call your doctor. You probably don’t have a pulse.”

Nicki Minaj was quick to the point with “Four words: See ya next week!” Mariah Carey said, “You’ve showed you can sing anything, any day of the a week. A-plus-mazing!”

Randy Jackson announced, “She had one of the greatest vocals in ‘Idol’ history. Guess what — she’s got another one!” Jackson was referring to last month, when Glover performed an unbelievable version of “Lovesong.” At the time, the veteran judge had told her, “Let me just say on behalf of all my judges on here, one of the greatest performances in the history, in 12 years of ‘American Idol.”

He added now of her “Somewhere performance, “This is like a singing lesson… Oh my god, I’m so proud of you.”
