The third time’s the charm for Candice, whose long road to Season 12’s Top 10 comes after tough eliminations in Seasons 9 and 11. Her determination and rich vocal tone gave her a leg up during her audition this time around. Her authenticity and range were on full display throughout the competition early on, and she earned her keep as a Finalist with her Hollywood Week song, “Girl on Fire,” which left the judges and fans at home in awe. »
MIND-BLOWING. BREATHTAKING. GROUNDBREAKING. WHEN DID YOU FIRST REALIZE YOU COULD SING? When I was eight years old in the bathtub, singing the national anthem.
DO YOU HAVE A HIDDEN TALENT THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOUR FANS? I write plays for youth church kids.
WHICH JUDGE WERE YOU MOST INTIMIDATED TO MEET? Nicki.
WHAT MAGAZINE WOULD YOU BE MOST EXCITED TO GRACE THE COVER OF AND WHY? Shape. For losing weight.
WHAT’S ONE BACKSTAGE MOMENT YOU WISH YOU COULD FORGET? Falling in heels! WHO OR WHAT HAS HAD THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN YOUR LIFE? Jazmine Sullivan and Christina Aguilera. WHICH FORMER IDOL CONTESTANTS HAVE BEEN A BIG INSPIRATION TO YOU AND WHY? Carrie Underwood, because she’s from a small town like me, and now she’s a star. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ANYONE CONSIDERING AUDITIONING FOR IDOL IN 2014? Be yourself!
WHAT CELEBRITY WOULD YOU LIKE TO PORTRAY YOU IN A MOVIE ABOUT YOUR LIFE? Jennifer Hudson. She was a plus-size girl who was always underestimated, just like me. But then I showed the world what I’m made of! WHAT IS ONE BIG LIFE LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED? Not to be afraid to show the world exactly who I am. I missed out on a lot because of a fear of being rejected.
