Candice Glover Gets Standing Ovation for Bruno Mars Cover on Idol (VIDEO)
Candice Glover received a standing ovation for an “amazing” Bruno Mars cover on “American Idol” on Wednesday.
The Top 4 singer belted out “If I Was Your Man,” and wowed the judges with her vocals.
“You can sing anything,” Randy Jackson told Glover. “This girl right here, that’s how you sing a song. Congratulations, that was amazing!”
Mariah Carey agreed, saying, “Candice knows how to take any song and has the musicality to change it to suit her. And that’s what separates her from almost everyone else in the competition.”
Keith Urban told Glover she had no reason to be worried about singing a song from a man’s perspective, and told her, “When you sing that good Candice, that’s a winning performance right there, baby.”
And Nicki Minaj admitted, “That performance actually deserved a standing ovation, so excuse us, darling,” prompting the panel to stand up belatedly.
“You were the first girl tonight to make the song feel like it was your own song written for you, performing for your own fans,” said the rapper.
