Each believed the night belonged to the other. When it came down to announcing the winner, both girls repeated each other’s name.
“I was saying her name, because I was just certain he was going to say it, so I was like, ‘Oh yeah, Kree, Kree, Kree,’ and she was like, ‘No, Candice, Candice, Candice,’ ” a stunned Glover told reporters shortly after Wednesday’s American Idol finale.
We all now know that Glovers’ was the name called, but it’s great to see the love and friendship between the two, still.
“We tell each other we love each other probably 90,000 times a day,” Glover said. “But it really meant a lot for her to hug me and say, ‘I love you, and I’m so happy for you.’ And I said the same to her. I’m so proud of her.”
She added: “We are both so driven for each other’s careers, and I just felt like it was the beginning. This is not the end of the road for any of us. I’m so proud of her, and I am proud of myself for getting this far, and I couldn’t believe I was standing there with her at the finale.”
As I mentioned in a previous post, both of these young ladies will have amazing careers and it’s good to know that they’ll be rooting each other on because it’s a crazy business!
