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!”

Randy Jackson announced, “She had one of the greatest vocals in ‘Idol’ history. Guess what – she’s got another one!”

“This is like a singing lesson…” he added. “Oh my god, I’m so proud of you.”

And Mariah Carey said, “You’ve showed you can sing anything, any day of the a week. A-plus-mazing!”
