Behind-the-Scenes of the Season 12 ‘American Idol’ Finale

May 17, 2013 12:01 am

Last night season 12 of “American Idol” came to a close. The finale was star-studded with performances by Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and more!

When everything was all said and done it was Candice Glover that was crowned the winner, she’s the first female “Idol” winner since Jordin Sparks in Season 6.

Host Ryan Seacrest gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the moment just before he read the winning name. He tells us Candice and Kree [Harrison] were talking on stage…however, even though he was right next to them he couldn’t quite hear what they were saying. But he says that the girls are really close and even call themselves wingwomen.

Congrats Candice!

Would Angie Miller Ever Collaborate With Look Alike Miley Cyrus?
